94.5 KBAY and Mix 106.5 are bringing multi-platinum rocker Bryan Adams to San Jose’s premiere fireworks viewing party this Fourth of July 2016. Adams made a name for himself with hits including Cuts Like A Knife, Summer of ’69 and more. He’ll be performing in support of his studio album ‘Get Up.’
Doors open at 4 pm and the concert begins at 5 pm with local opener David Brookings & the Average Lookings. Bryan Adams plays from 6-7:30 pm. The Rotary Fireworks show begins at dusk.
$15 advance ticket pricing ends at midnight on Wednesday, June 29. A limited number of General Admission tickets will be available at the door for $20.
Mix 106.5 and 94.5 KBAY are hosting the show, which will include a great view of the fireworks, food trucks, kids activities, pre-order BBQ, beer, wine and more. Those who don’t want to wait in food truck lines can order pre-paid BBQ. Pick up your food when you arrive at your table. Look for that option as a separate purchase.

Will there be tickets on-sale day of event on-site?

How does the seating work?
VIP seating area is open seating, but only VIP ticket holders are allowed in the VIP seating area. You may move from one seat to another for the concert or for the fireworks, but you give up the first one when you move. There will be one seat available for every VIP ticket sold in advance, but the best seats are going to go early. General Admission ticket holders get a bucket seat when they arrive, which they can move to anywhere within the general admission area. Buckets are limited and not guaranteed, so we suggest you get there early.
What if I buy a VIP table?
If you buy a table, you get a RESERVED table with 10 seats, in the name of the purchaser. Whoever buys the table must present their ticket at the gate and will be handed 10 wristbands. THAT person is responsible for distributing wristbands to the other 9 guests. If someone in your party comes later, you are welcome to go outside the gate [with your wristband on] to hand off theirs, then come back in.
