VIP ticket holders

If you purchased a VIP ticket, you are entitled to some special perks. First of all, the ticket does NOT say VIP on it. The way to identify this ticket is by the price of $47 and the ticket will say 'General Admission Pit'. If you have this ticket, you are a VIP member. You will be able to access the food court area starting at 5:00 p.m. VIP gates open at 5:30 p.m. and the private performance will take place around 5:50 p.m. When you arrive, you will be given a VIP lanyard. You must display this lanyard to gain access to the VIP area in the front of the stage. Attached to your lanyard is a pink ticket. This can be used to pick up your PT merch item from The Pork Tornadoes merch booth. Please note: If you arrive after the show has started, you MAY have to go to The Pork Tornadoes merch booth to pick up your items. No chairs allowed in the VIP area, standing room only.

GA admission tickets

If you purchased a General Admission Lawn ticket, you are able to pick your spot to congregate in the GA area. You are allowed to bring in a reasonably-sized chair or blanket, but it should be noted that the majority of the GA area will be standing. There will be some designated areas on the sides of the GA area for anyone who is bringing a chair or blanket and would prefer to sit during the whole show.


The Pork Tornadoes are a bit of an enigma to those that haven't seen them live. How is it possible for a local cover band to sell out the Paramount Theatre 6 different times? How can it be that a local cover band has the all-time attendance record for the McGrath Amphitheater? What about the head-scratching amount of views on their YouTube channel/Facebook page (18 Million views) and fans on their social media pages (100,000+ fans)? How about the fact that they released an album of cover songs (Beard Pop) and it peaked at #20 on the iTunes Apple Music Pop Charts and has been streamed over 1 million times? All of that with such a terrible choice for a band name?! Their incredibly loyal fanbase will tell you that it makes complete sense and until you see a show, you may not understand. Since the band's inception in 2007 in Cedar Falls, The Pork Tornadoes have quietly carved their niche and perfected their craft. "We have always played the same show, whether there are 5 people there or 20,000. It's all about having fun on stage and enhancing the show for our fans," says lead singer Mason Greve, who was 1 of 100 finalists on a not-to-be-mentioned national television singing program in 2014. The band developed their signature sound by taking modern day pop songs and adding their own spin to them, which continued to skyrocket their popularity. However, they have never limited themselves to sticking with one genre. "We play songs that we want to play and it just so happens that we like all different decades and styles of music," bassist Cory Talbot said. That is the beauty and desirability of going to see The Pork Tornadoes. No matter your age or favorite kind of music, this band will be able to play something that makes you happy. While pop and rock music is the band's specialty, their diversity is evident in their recent cover of classic country song, "Tennessee Whiskey." Their video has been viewed more than 8M times.
