Explanation of benefits:
- Presale Ticket Buying Opportunities to All OP Shows (with very limited exceptions) for you and a guest: This perk allows members to buy tickets online via a special, private link that will be emailed exclusively to loyalty club members by the Orange Peel each week, to all Orange Peel concerts newly going on sale during the membership period, with the possibility of exceptions when artist contracts do not allow a local pre-sale. The Orange Peel will make every reasonable effort to allow members the option of purchasing up to two tickets for most if not all Orange Peel shows going on sale during membership period. Occasionally, a box office in-person presale may be substituted for the online presale, when necessitated. Online pre-sales will generally run for 2 hours before the general admission, general public on sale begins; the time lines for presale with the link and any other pertinent information, including ticket limitations per member, will be emailed to the club members each week prior to the beginning of the presale.
- Priority Entry as soon as Doors Open for you and a guest. Priority entry allows all paid and valid members with one accompanying guest of their choice to enter PULP or the Pulp hallway, via the door at PULP on Hilliard Ave, up to thirty (30) minutes before advertised Doors time to any show they already possess a valid ticket to. When doors officially open, all members and their guests who are attending a given show will be escorted into the main venue. Access will not be given until the band officially allows Orange Peel security to open doors. Anyone who cannot enter through the door from the stairwell at the PULP entrance can be taken via the elevator. All members and their guests over 21 may wait until doors in the PULP lounge; a complimentary membership is provided. Guests and members under 21 are not permitted by NC law to wait in PULP and will be provided a waiting area near the stairwell.
- Complimentary Reserved Seat upon Request
Any member of the monthly loyalty club may reserve a seat, with advanced notice via email or phone call to the Orange Peel, for no extra charge, to any show they are attending with a valid ticket. The location of the seat is not guaranteed, but will usually be on the raised platform at stage right. Seating type may be stool or chair. If advance reservation for a seat is not received more than 24 hours before the doors open on day of show, a seat cannot be guaranteed, although the Orange Peel will still make our best effort to provide one when possible. Guests of members may purchase a seat on the raised platform, space permitting, for a $5 to $6 fee depending on the original ticket price. Guests tickets can be purchased by calling (828) 225-5851, the Orange Peel box office.
- Will Call ticket pickup available for pick up at early entrance with no waiting: If a member has will call tickets and does not collect them from the box office prior to arrival before Doors on the night of show, the Orange Peel will collect these tickets for him/her and have them available at the PULP door, which will open 30 minutes prior to general admission doors for early access to loyalty club members. Valid ID and credit card must be presented to claim tickets. All club members should be ready with valid ID, and preferably, should have RSVP’d via email in advance to any shows during their month of membership for which they have tickets and are planning to arrive early to the PULP door, so the Orange Peel staff can be expecting them.
- Complimentary PULP membership for those over 21: Pulp is a private club, located under the Orange Peel. It is open to those 21 and over only. All members of the loyalty program who are over 21 will receive a PULP membership card that will be good from the 1st of the month they join the loyalty club until the following year: one year’s worth of PULP membership. PULP members are allowed to bring one guest (non-member) into PULP with them at a time, if capacity allows. Guests must also be 21 or older.
