Buyer Beware

With the rise in the number of "secondary ticket agencies/scalpers", we have experienced an increase in the number of invalid tickets being presented at our entrance gates. The ONLY authorized ticket sales agents for the Lexington Opera House are:

The Lexington Opera House is not able to honor, replace or refund invalid tickets. Invalid tickets must be confiscated by the Central Bank Center Ticket Office. A copy of the tickets, which may be used to alert the point of purchase, will be provided at the customer's request.

Customers with invalid tickets are welcome to purchase valid tickets at the Central Bank Center Ticket Office - seating location and price based upon availability.

Ticket Types

Mobile Tickets

Mobile tickets are special barcodes that pull up on your phone, please go directly to the turnstile/ticket scanners with your mobile device. Have them scan the QR codes on your phone.You may want to add these to your device in advance via Passbook or digital wallet, or take a screenshot of the mobile ticket prior to coming to the event. Mobile network access can be extremely difficult on site with large crowds.

What happens if you have a ticket problem?

You may contact the Central Bank Center Ticket Officer customer service line at 859-787-0915. The ticket office will be available to help with a variety of ticket issues.  Make sure you have your photo ID (required), the confirmation number and card used for purchase (very helpful in locating the order quickly).  If you gave your tickets to someone else, and they have problems upon entry there is little the box office will be able to do to help.  We will evaluate all issues and let the patron know what we can do to help if anything.  Tickets being used by patrons who are not the original purchaser (such as tickets purchased on the Secondary Market) cannot be validated, thus making it very challenging to help.  In most instances, these patrons will need to purchase tickets to get in to the event.

Acceptable Methods of Payment

Central Bank Center Ticket Office accepts cash, Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover cards. (Valid photo ID is required with all credit card payments.)

Refund / Exchange Policy

Canceled Events – If an event is canceled and you purchased tickets through either Ticketmaster’s phone room or their website, you won’t need to do a thing; they will inform you of the cancellation and refund the amount you paid for your tickets, including all fees on the same payment method used for purchase.

If you purchased tickets at either a Ticketmaster outlet or through the Central Bank Center Ticket Office either in person or through their phone room, you will need to return to the point of purchase with your tickets and they will refund you directly. Again, your refund will include both the face value of the ticket and the corresponding service fees, if any.

Reschedule Events – If your event was rescheduled, we’ll contact you with the new date and time ASAP. Can’t make it? The decision to issue refunds for rescheduled/postposed events is up to the individual artist, team or promoter, but we’ll do everything we can to help! Just contact us.

Replacement Tickets – If your tickets are lost, stolen, damaged, destroyed or not received, please let us help. Just contact us.

Refunds and Exchanges – The standard policy for our venues as well as most artists and promoters is “no refunds or exchanges.” However, if something comes up prior to the event’s show time, we’ll do everything we can to help, but there are no guarantees. Please contact us

Service Fees

Service/convenience fees are charged to all online and phone orders on a per ticket basis. These fees cover the costs that allow Ticketmaster and Central Bank Center to provide a wide range of purchasing options for ticket buyers. The charge varies by event and ticket pricing. Purchasing tickets in person at the Central Bank Center Ticket Office or Opera House Box Office is the only way to avoid service fees.
