Early bird attitude — be sure to arrive early to Neyland due to anticipated traffic congestion and nab good parking, and you also might want to enter the stadium early as gates open at 5 p.m. – and the show starts at 7 p.m. (Note for floor-seat ticket holders – enter Gates 7, 8, 9)

Clear bag policy — BRING A CLEAR BAG. If you need to bring a bag, make sure it’s clear. This is Neyland Stadium policy.

Alcohol — If you plan to purchase alcohol, please be ready to present your ID. An ID is REQUIRED for every purchase. No outside alcoholic beverages are allowed, so save your “Beer Run (B Double E Double Are You In)” cash for concert beverages.
