Why can’t I find an event on the website?

Below are a few reasons and suggestions to help you with your search:

  • No performances are currently scheduled for The Midland date or artist you may have selected.
  • The Midland will only list an event after all information is confirmed with artist management. Events are always listed in time to purchase tickets the day they are put on sale.
  • Check the proper spelling of the artist or band. All words must be spelled correctly.
  • Make sure there is spacing between your words (i.e. Melissa Etheridge, not melissaetheridge).
  • The event may not be officially promoted by The Midland or AEG Live. You may want to try finding the event on the band’s official website or AXS.com.
