Elton John will take the stage promptly at 8pm as there are no opening acts! We encourage guests to plan ahead and arrive early, allowing ample time for parking, security screening, and entry so you don't miss a moment. Please review the important show information below, verify your ticketed show date, download your digital tickets ahead of time, and make it a great night!
Clear Bag Policy
GO CLEAR FOR SAFETY
The Tacoma Dome has a clear bag policy to expedite entry and reduce touch points for security staff and guests.
Tacoma Dome Bag Policy
- Bags may only be clear plastic, vinyl, or PVC, sized 12"x6"x12" or smaller
- Small clutch purses are okay if sized 4.5"x6.5" or smaller
- One gallon plastic storage bags are okay
- Tacoma Dome clear bags are available for purchase at Stocklist Goods
- A very limited amount of Binbox lockers are available for rent on a first-come, first-served basis outside the venue for $10-$15 (card only, no cash)
Please visit our Bag Policy page for additional information.
The Tacoma Dome is a cashless facility, including all concession and merchandise sales. Google Pay and Apple Pay are also available at concession points of sale. There are cash-to-card kiosks (reverse ATM’s) where guests can exchange their cash for a Tacoma Dome VISA card. Card balances remain usable anywhere after the event. Going cashless improves the transaction process, reduces wait times, and limits guest to staff contact. Cashless parking payment options are also available. Please visit our Cashless FAQs for more information.
Let us guide your way! Please follow our recommended routes - The use of Exit 133 from I-5 is not advised. This exit is generally closed for high volume traffic events and traffic will be re-routed. For real-time traffic, we suggest using Waze. Parking in Tacoma Dome lots is $30 and may be limited.
Park in downtown Tacoma and take the T Line Link to the Tacoma Dome Station! Running extended hours, the last train leaves TDome station at 11:48pm.
Check out the Plan Your Visit page for alternate parking and transportation options.
Security measures are in place for all Tacoma Dome events, including metal detectors and a clear bag policy. Weapons of any kind, including pocket knives, are not allowed. No outside food and beverage. If you see something, say something™. Only bring necessary items to expedite the entry process.
