“Support for Mariah Carey’s night is overwhelming. Lots of interest. Sales are going quite good and as we get closer to event day we expect it to spike,” Florence Campbell, head of ticketing for the festival told reporters.
“The request for an ID to pick up tickets is part of our standard policy and is for verification to prevent fraudulent pickups. We have a great show planned and encourage patrons, as best as possible, to pick up their tickets in advance of the event so you are not delayed getting into the venue,” Campbell added.
The festival is slated for the Trelawny Multi-Purpose Stadium from January 29 to 31.
