Noted Warren Haynes in a press release,

I can’t believe that it has been 30 years since myself and a few friends held a small event in a local club so we could all play together around the holidays and donate a small amount of money to charity. Never in our wildest dreams did I, or anyone in attendance that night, expect that our little show would evolve into the event that it has, taking place over 2 nights at the arena where I saw so many great shows as a teenager. It’s gone from being a local event to an international one and we couldn’t have done it without the help of all the great artists, bands, and musicians that have donated their time through the years. I am thrilled and humbled that so many incredible musicians are going to help celebrate this milestone. This is truly going to be the biggest and best Christmas Jam yet. 

Pre-sale tickets for the upcoming 30th-anniversary Christmas Jam will go on-sale this Friday, October 19th, with both discounted two-day passes and VIP/travel packages available. On Friday, October 26th, tickets will go on sale to the general public. As noted in the announcement’s press release, “An increased number of reserved seats in the balcony of the arena will be made available during both the pre-sale and public on-sale, offering a guaranteed seat for the entire 7+ hour shows.” For more information, head to the event’s website.
