Where can I get tickets to Iron Works shows?

Tickets can be purchased online on our website, www.buffaloironworks.com, through our tickets partner, See Tickets. 

Tickets to [most] of our shows can also be purchased at the door the night of the show, for that show. Just stay tuned to our website and Facebook events pages to ensure that the show hasn’t sold out. 

We only sell tickets through SeeTickets. The show and the link are on our website for outside Promoter shows such as FTMP Events and MNM Presents, but will direct you to a different ticketing website. Please be alert of any outside websites trying to sell fake/scam tickets.

No, we cannot promise that tickets purchased outside of our system are valid. To ensure that your tickets are valid, avoid shopping for them through third-party websites like StubHub, VividSeats, etc., and purchase your tickets directly from our website, www.buffaloironworks.com. 

When can I pick up tickets that are at will call?

Will call operates in sync with the box office the evening of the show, so you can just state your name and show your ID at the box office to claim entry.

What happens when I can’t print my tickets or if I can’t find my email confirmation?

We always print out a full list of show attendees to keep at the box office the night of each show. You can just state your name and show your ID at the box office to claim entry.
