The 2008 Cincinnati Entertainment Awards show on Nov. 23 is officially sold out, but fans who want to catch the show-closing performance by bluegrass legend and Grammy Award winner Ralph Stanley might still be able to purchase tickets.
Every year at the CEAs some nominees leave during the show (typically once their category awards are announced). Since there is no re-entry to the Emery Theatre, those vacated seats will be released and resold to those who’d like to see Stanley and the Clinch Mountain Boys perform at the end of the evening.
The ticket staff at the Emery box office will issue priority numbers on a first-come first-served basis as soon as the event begins at 7 p.m. You will be instructed when to return to the Emery Theatre to claim your tickets and be admitted to the CEA show (estimated to occur no sooner than 8:30 p.m.). Stanley and the Clinch Mountain Boys are scheduled to perform at approximately 9:30.
All CEA tickets include admission to the infamous CEA Afterparty, which will be held at Know Theater of Cincinnati nearby and feature free Dewey’s Pizza and live music by the Comet Bluegrass All-Stars. Ticket proceeds benefit the Mark W. Bany Scholarship Fund.
