Stephen Curry is cooking up a party in downtown Oakland, but confusion and complaints about miscommunication have surfaced regarding the shindig's specific details.
The Golden State Warriors superstar took to Instagram Tuesday night and announced that he's throwing a free bash on Friday at Oakland's Fox Theater in celebration of his 10th year playing in "The Town."
There's a lot of confusion surrounding details on how to obtain tickets to the event, so here's the latest provided to NBC Bay Area from Under Armour:
- The first 225 people in line beginning 12 noon Thursday at an SC30 x Oakland pop-up shop (472 9th Street in downtown Oakland) will be gifted two tickets each to Friday's event at the Fox Theater
- No purchases are necessary
- Pop-up shop employees will ask to see a valid high school or college ID from those in line
- Admission is not guaranteed at the Fox Theater on Friday and available on a first-come, first-served basis. Additional tickets will be given away via KMEL radio.
An initial Under Armour press release said tickets to the event would be given to customers at the pop-up shop with a single purchase, but Curry himself later said on Twitter that you "Don’t have to buy anything!"
An unknown amount of people in line at the pop-up shop at 4 a.m. Wednesday were given tickets, according to an Under Armour spokesperson. But ticket distribution was later halted for the day. The pop-up shop will be open again from 12 to 7 p.m. on Thursday and Friday, according to Under Armour.
"It's a youth event and we’re focused on high school and college students attending," according to an Under Armour spokesperson.
It is not clear how many tickets are still available at this point.
When it comes to the party on Friday, Curry promised that it would feature special performances and appearances. According to Under Armour, the performers include E-40, Mistah F.A.B., Saweetie and P-Lo. Sway and Ruby Lopez are listed as the emcees.
"2019 is going to be a year of celebration, especially for me as we get to celebrate the city of Oakland," Curry said in the Instagram video. "Obviously this is our last year playing in Oakland as the Warriors organization. It's a great opportunity for me to be able to share a little bit of my 10-year journey here playing in front of Oakland."
After the conclusion of this season, the Warriors will be moving across the San Francisco Bay and playing their home games at the brand new Chase Center.
