FAQs

What time is the show? 6:30pm. 

Where can I park? Parking is free for ticketed guests at EagleBank Arena.

Can I take the METRO to get to EagleBank Arena? The closest Metro station to EagleBank Arena is the Vienna station, the last stop on the Orange line in Virginia. Metro bus and the Fairfax CUE bus system both stop at the George Mason University campus. However, we encourage you to check with Metro and CUE bus for their schedules as many events end past the time these transportation systems run buses. 

At what age is a child required to have a ticket to attend an event? Children two years and older require a ticket, even if the child is able to sit on the lap of a parent or guardian. We strongly recommend having a seat for a child old enough to occupy a seat to ensure that patrons sitting next to you and in front of you are able to enjoy the event without disruption. 

What hotels are located nearby? Plenty. Check them out here.  

Where is the box office located? The box office is located at the West entrance of the building. 

What different kinds of payments are accepted at the EagleBank Arena box office when purchasing tickets? Cash, VISA, MasterCard, Discover and American Express. No checks.

Can I return my tickets after initial purchase? Ticketmaster offers a 3-day return policy. Check it out here

What items are prohibited from being brought into the arena for an event? Everyone must pass through a security checkpoint before entering the arena. You may be subject to a physical search prior to entry, as there are a variety of items which are not allowed inside the arena. Prohibited items include, but are not limited to: backpacks, luggage, bags larger than a women’s purse, still cameras, video cameras, laser pointers, food and drink, and hard containers of any kind. If you have any questions about bringing an item into the building, please call in advance. We do not have a coat check area to hold items during the show. All prohibited items must be returned to your vehicle or left outside. EagleBank Arena cannot be held responsible for items left outside the arena.  

What is your cancellation policy for inclement weather? Performances will go on as scheduled unless extreme weather conditions prohibit the show from taking place. Information concerning inclement weather will be posted on the website. If a show is cancelled, refunds may be obtained through the point of purchase.  Tickets purchased through an outlet or at the box office must be returned to those locations in order to receive a refund.  A credit will automatically be issued to the cardholder for tickets purchased online or via phone through Ticketmaster.

VetsAid Selects First Round of Veteran Charities to Benefit from Concert

Applications now open for local, IRS-recognized, non-profit organizations serving the nation’s wounded, ill and injured

(Washington, DC)  - VetsAid, the first annual concert to support veterans and their families sponsored by Joe Walsh, Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Inductee and multi GRAMMY Award recipient announces the following organizations as charitable partners that will benefit from this year’s September 20 concert: Operation Mend, Hire Heroes USA, Warrior Canine Connection, TAPS, Semper Fi Fund, Children of Fallen Patriots Foundation, Stop Soldier Suicide and Swords to Plowshares.

Providing support to organizations that care for the nation’s military wounded, ill and injured is deeply personal to Walsh, a Gold Star survivor whose father died while on active duty on Okinawa, Japan when Walsh was 20 months old. “It’s the least I could do for those who have served and continue to serve our country,” said Walsh. “We’re all in this together as Americans and seems to me lately that people are forgetting that.”

Walsh has assisted various veteran’s charities over the years and personally reached out to Veterans, including visiting Walter Reed Medical Center where he offered free guitar lessons to wounded veterans. With assistance from industry experts, Walsh and leaders of VetsAid reviewed numerous organizations before selecting the initial eight veteran- and caregiver-focused charities.

“The first round of charities selected adheres to the highest standards in fiscal transparency and governance, delivering high-quality programs that positively impact the lives of the families they serve,” said Chris Ford, CEO of the National Association of Veteran-Serving Organizations, the organization assisting the selection process.

The September 20th show, to benefit VetsAid, an IRS-recognized national non-profit 501(c)(3), will be held at the EagleBank Arena in Fairfax, Virginia. The concert will feature full set performances by Walsh, the Zac Brown Band, Gary Clark Jr., and Keith Urban. Tickets are on sale now.

If you are an IRS-recognized non-profit that supports wounded, ill and injured veterans and families of the fallen and are interested in applying for a VetsAid grant, please go to VetsAid.org for information and to access the application form. Applications for this year’s concert must be received by September 10, 2017.
