Tuesday’s show is sold out, though a few higher-priced tickets ($165, $250) were still available for Wednesday’s performance, as of 5 p.m. Monday, from Ticketmaster. Both shows start at 8 p.m. Nine other shows are booked on the arena’s calendar, including sold-out concerts by Maroon 5 on Oct. 15 and Jimmy Buffett on Oct. 20. The NBA’s Sacramento Kings start their preseason at Golden 1 Center on Oct. 10.
