Where to Buy Williamsburg Waterfront Concert Tickets Without Paying Ticketmaster Fees

We get about three emails a day asking if there is any other place outside the demon lairs of Ticketmaster to buy tickets to the Open Space Alliance’s concerts at the Williamsburg Waterfront. After deleting them for weeks or responding, “We’re a blog goddamnit. We don’t know,” I decided to ask somebody.

So here’s your answer. You can avoid paying blood money on Ticketmaster’s website by picking up real-life, hard-paper tickets at the Nokia Theater in Times Square. The ticket price is exactly same as listed but without those nasty service or convience charges. You’ll save roughly $9 – $12 a ticket.

The Nokia Theatre box office hours are Monday through Saturday 12 pm to 6 pm. You can contact them at (212) 930-1950.


  1. Thank you!!!

  2. Thanks for this info. Great to know. I am all about not paying the TM fees. And the Nokia is very convenient for me. Unfortunately, it was too late for my Band of Horse tix. I already bought them through TM and paid $45.55 for a $30.00 ticket. So bummed I didn’t get this ticket at the Nokia box office!

  3. If i didn’t puchase tix, sold out, is their anywhere to sit outside the concert and listen and not be inside like summer stage @ central park?
