Parking in the North Shore and Downtown can be prepaid for through Parking Panda. Rates range from $7 to $100, according to the website.

Fans with floor tickets must enter Gate 6 on Reedsdale Street and receive a wristband. Fans picking up tickets at stadium Will Call windows must have photo identification. The window opens at 4 p.m. on May 18.

Event organizers are advising fans to download tickets onto a smart phone. Here are instructions on the best ways to do that.
