DETROIT – Olympia Entertainment announced details Monday surrounding the free Community Sneak Peek at Little Caesars Arena.

The event will take place Sept. 9 from 2-8 p.m. The tour is part of Little Caesars Arena Preview Week and is one of the first opportunities for fans and community members to experience the Via Concourse and look into the arena bowl.

Tickets are free and will be released to the public at 10 a.m. Friday at Ticketmaster.com or at the box offices of the Fox Theatre and Joe Louis Arena.

Tickets are good for a 60-minute time slot between 2 p.m. and 8 p.m. on Sept. 9.

There is a four-ticket limit for this event, and tickets will not be available on event day.

Online reservations require a Ticketmaster account. Due to the anticipated demand, attendees are advised to set up a Ticketmaster account in advance.

Among the highlights of the tour will be Little Caesars Arena's unique deconstructed design concept; the world's largest, seamless, center-hung scoreboard; the streetscape-inspired Via Concourse, featuring a transparent, climate-controlled roof; and the larger-than-life projection "jewel skin" screen surrounding the exterior of the upper bowl.

Attendees are encouraged to arrive 45 minutes before their reserved tour time at the Comerica Bank entrance on the corner of Woodward Avenue and Henry Street.

Free parking will be available at Olympia Development parking garages and surface lots.
