Third time’s a charm: Jon Stewart ticket sales to resume Aug. 4

Nearly a month after technical difficulties prevented fans of Jon Stewart from purchasing tickets to see his Colonials Weekend performance, the University announced ticket sales will resume at 10 a.m. on Tuesday, Aug. 4.

Frustrated Twitter users called the July 7 and July 8 incidents #VendiniGate after they experienced issues while purchasing the tickets through the vendor Vendini.

Seven thousand non-refundable tickets, which cost $50 to $99, are available for both the 7 p.m. and 10 p.m. shows, according to the University release.

“If you did not receive a confirmation email then you do not have tickets,” reads the release. “All previous purchases will be honored and reserved seating will remain the same.”

Stewart’s last episode as host of Comedy Central’s “The Daily Show” airs next week.
