With the announcement that hugely popular Foo Fighters will be coming to Casper this December, Casper Events Center officials are taking steps to make sure that patrons know the best and safest way to purchase tickets for this or other events.

First, beware careful when you go online to buy. "There are a lot of secondary market brokers out there, scalpers out there, who are trying to imitate our tickets or sell fraudulent tickets, and we just want to make sure that our community knows, beware, and be careful," says Brad Murphy, the General Manager of the Casper Events Center.

Murphy says there are a number of websites that try to imitate the Events Center Website with names that are very close to the real thing, and he says the only authorized online agencies for this concert are SinclairTix.com and FooFighters.com.

You can also purchase tickets in person at the SinclairTix Box Office at the Casper Events Center, or by phone, also at the SinclairTix Box Office at the Casper Events Center. That number is (800) 442-2256.

The Foo Fighters will perform on December 10th, 2017. Tickets go on sale Thursday, June 29th at 10am. Officials say unauthorized purchases are often counterfeit or stolen and may not be honored on the night of the show.
