Q: When and where is the show?

A: The show is at 7:30 p.m. on Monday, November 13, 2023, in the Crown Coliseum (1960 Coliseum Drive, Fayetteville, NC) !


A: YES! We can’t stress this enough. The Crown Coliseum is a clear bag ONLY venue. That means no purses that aren’t clear or ANY bags at all that don’t fit the Crown’s description. This is not a WKML policy. This is a Crown Coliseum policy, and is standard at most entertainment venues. Again, please leave your bag in your car. (Read the Crown’s policies here.)


A: NO! Absolutely no weapons of ANY type are allowed in the Crown Coliseum. This includes pocket knives, firearms, mace, pepper spray, and pretty much everything else. You will NOT be able to bring it in the venue. This is a Crown Coliseum policy. They will make you take it back to your vehicle. Save yourself the steps and don’t bring it in the first place. (Read the Crown’s policies here.)

Q: Where should we park and enter for the show?

A: We advise everyone to park in the lot adjacent to East Mountain Drive and enter there. But all of the Crown parking will be available.

Q: How is this different from other concerts?

A: Stars & Guitars is a unique show in that all of our artists are on stage at the same time. It truly is an unforgettable concert experience. Each artist performs several songs in a loop, with story-telling and other fun interaction with all the artists. So unlike a traditional concert, you won’t have “opening acts” or a “headliner”. It’s an amazing experience.

Q: Who are the artists?

A: Our artists are being announced the week of August 28-September 1. Listen to The Big Wake Up With Don Chase & Sarah to find out who’s coming!

Q: Can I wait to buy tickets at the door?

A: NO! This show WILL SELL OUT. Tickets will not be available at the door. You do not want to wait to buy tickets. Trust us. Every seat is $30, so the best seats will sell earliest.

Q: What are my other options for tickets?

A: We will be giving away tickets at our ticket stops throughout September, October and November, as well as some on-air and online ticket giveaways. (Here’s the Ticket Stop schedule.)

Q: What’s a ticket stop?

A: Ticket stops are 95 minute (or 2 hours in some instances) station appearances at some of our partner businesses around the community. (See the schedule here and check back regularly for new additions.) At each ticket stop we will give away a set number of pairs of tickets to the show (usually 15 pairs). You DO have to be present to register, but you do NOT have to be present to win.

Q: How do I pick up tickets if I win them?

A: ALL tickets won at Ticket Stops this year will be ELECTRONIC tickets. YOU DO NOT NEED TO COME TO THE STATION TO GET THESE. Make sure you watch your emails for your confirmations. No tickets will be sent out before November 1, 2023. Don’t worry, you’ll be in our system.

Q: What about VIP passes?

A: There are no VIP passes for sale for this show. We have TWO opportunities to win your way into VIP this year.

  1. Come to our on sale parking lot party at the Crown Coliseum, on Friday, September 1 from 9:30-11:30 a.m. ONE person will win a VIP package, including front-row tickets, and VIP party access.
  2. At every ticket stop this year, you can register for a shot at a VIP package. One person will QUALIFY at every ticket stop. But only one person will win the package, that we draw at the very last ticket stop.

Q: What health and safety protocols will be in place for the show this year?

A: Currently, the Crown Coliseum is not requiring the wearing of masks for events. So we are operating under that premise for now. As we get closer to the show date, there may be changes based on the impacts of COVID-19 in the community. We will post regular updates on the status.

Q: Does the Crown have any other safety procedures?

A: Yes, the Crown Complex is now a clear bag only facility, and allows absolutely NO weapons of any type (that includes pocket knives). Please make sure to leave all those in your car. Get more info on the policies here.

Q: What are the refund policies for this show?

A: Tickets are generally non-refundable after purchase. The exception to that will be if we have to cancel the show (which we do not anticipate having to do). IF that were to happen, all tickets will be refunded at your point of purchase through the Crown Complex.
