How do I get tickets to The NorVA's shows?

The NorVa’s box office is open EVERY FRIDAY from 10am to 5pm.

Tickets can be purchased for all upcoming shows online at thenorva.com and AXS.com and in person at The NorVa Box Office, located directly in front of the venue at 317 Monticello Avenue. Box Office hours are Friday 10am to 5pm. The NorVa Box Office will open one hour prior to doors the evening of shows.

In addition, tickets for events at The NorVa are now available to purchase in person at The National Box Office in Richmond, located at 708 E. Broad Street. Hours are Thursday-Friday 10am to 5pm.

Don't get ripped off! The NorVa Box Office and AXS are the only authorized sellers of tickets. The NorVa is not responsible for tickets purchased anywhere other than through AXS or through The NorVa Box Office and will not honor, exchange, or refund counterfeit, duplicate or invalid tickets.

I bought tickets through other, secondary market sources (ie., “scalpers” online or in person) – are my tickets legit?

The NorVa does not endorse using any secondary ticketing sources.  Our Box Office can not resolve any issues involving them, such as lost tickets or bogus tickets. Tickets for all of our shows are sold through AXS, or in person at the Box Office at The NorVa. Tickets are sometimes available through fan club sites as pre-sales or special VIP packages. The NorVa has the right to cancel ticket transactions that are suspected of being purchased for the sole purpose of reselling.

What is AXS Mobile ID?

AXS Mobile ID is AXS' method of mobile ticket delivery.

  • Go to your app store on your smart phone and download the AXS app.
  • You must log in to the AXS.com app using the email you used to create your account and purchase tickets.  Using the wrong email address will make your tickets appear unavailable.
  • Go to MY EVENTS and your event should be listed.
  • Click on the event and it will bring up your tickets to be scanned.

What time do doors open for a show?

We usually open doors an hour before show time. Remember that’s a “usually,” not an “always.” We try to get guests into the venue as quickly as possible, but before we can open those doors, everything must be clean, everyone must be in their proper places, the band has to have warmed up and we must have had a group hug, so occasionally things take a little extra time.

What is seating like at The NorVA?

The NorVA is a general admission venue with limited seating located on the second floor balcony. Seating is available on a “first-come, first-served” basis. We recommend standing for a wide variety of reasons – you can dance, you look taller, you’ll have a better view of the stage and any potential new friends you might try to make during the show, it’s good exercise and it's just cooler.

Although it is rare, we occasionally have reserved seated shows for special events. If this is the case, we will make it clear both on our website and on the AXS event page. So no need to worry about any surprises!

How many guests can The NorVA hold?

The NorVA has a capacity of 1450 average-sized guests.

Is The NorVA handicap accessible?

Yes, The NorVA is a handicapped accessible facility with an elevator taking guests who wish to be in the second floor viewing area. Please contact any member of staff for assistance upon your arrival.

How old do I have to be to get into The NorVA?

The NorVA shows are all ages unless otherwise specified.

Can guests smoke cigarettes in The NorVA?

Some people like to smoke. Some people don’t. In order to accommodate everyone our rules are as follows: smoking is not permitted anywhere inside The NorVA. Our smoking lounge is located in the outdoor patio which is found at the bottom of the main stairwell. This stairwell is through the first set of doors directly behind the sound booth on the right side of the venue.

Are food and beverages available at The NorVA?

You bet. We have four bars located on the first floor, second floor, in the Rock Shop and on the outside patio, all offering beer*, wine*, and liquor*.

We also offer a limited food menu. Food can be ordered from any of the bars.

*We have a zero tolerance policy for underage drinking and illegal substances. We will prosecute violators to the full extent of the law (and we’ll tell your parents and it will make us very upset and our staff upset and believe us, it’s not worth the consequences). So if you are underage, enjoy your youth, the music and any number of non-alcoholic beverages.

Is there an ATM located inside The NorVA?

Of course there is. We have everything you could possible want in a concert venue. As you walk into The NorVA from Monticello Avenue, the ATM is located on your right inside of The Rock Shop.

Do you have a coat check?

We have one on the first floor behind the merch tables, but like coats, the coat check is seasonal and only used during the winter months.

Can I take pictures during a concert at The NorVA?

We welcome you to take as many photos as you desire, but all professional cameras (any camera with a removable lens) require a photo pass that must be approved ahead of time by the artist’s press contact and/or their management. Photo passes are not issued from The NorVA staff. In other words, if you're looking to obtain one - don't ask us. If you do not have a photo pass approved prior to the show, we will unfortunately ask you to take your camera back to your vehicle.

Use of flash is strictly prohibited for all cameras. This includes your cell phone. Trust us, you'll get a much better picture without your flash and you won't temporarily blind everyone around you. Win win.

What can't I bring into The NorVA?

In this respect we are very much like an airport – no weapons, no chains (pocket chains), no selfie sticks, no backpacks, no camelbaks, no illegal substances, no mace, no jokes. We take security very seriously and if you have any questions, please contact someone in the box office or a member of our staff. No professional photography gear is permitted unless otherwise specified by the tour. Thank you for your cooperation!
