How To Get Standby Tickets to Sold-Out Shows

NOTE: Before you go, please call our Ticket office to confirm that we are taping on the day you wish to attend.

If you’re not able to request tickets in advance, standby tickets are available same-day for each show. Standby tickets do not guarantee admission, but when we have extra tickets or cancellations those seats are distributed to the people in the standby line. For standby tickets, please arrive no later than 9:00 a.m. on the morning of the taping. The line forms on 49th Street (between 5th and 6th Avenues), beginning at the Tonight Show sign and heading towards the NBC Marquee. Standby tickets are numbered and given out, in order, to guests in line at 9 a.m. After receiving your numbered ticket, you will be able to leave the line and instructed to return at a specific time later that afternoon to check-in again and see if we are able to ticket you for that evening’s taping.

Once an individual has joined the standby line on 49th Street (between 5th and 6th Avenues, beginning at the Tonight Show sign), they CANNOT leave and return to their original place in line. You may not arrive early and "hold spots" for additional people to join you in line later, nor can you replace someone holding a spot in line for you. One standby ticket is granted per person. Standby line tickets will be distributed at 9a.m., but the standby line typically begins forming a few hours earlier. There is no standard time that standby line starts, and there is no guaranteed number of individuals that we are able to admit from standby on any given day.

Any standby tickets not handed out at 9:00 a.m. will be available at the NBC Greeter’s Stand by the Grand Staircase at 30 Rockefeller Plaza.

Everyone in line must present a valid photo I.D. containing date of birth. No one under the age of 16 will be admitted into the show, regardless if a parent or guardian is present.

NOTE: Before you go, please call our Ticket Office to confirm that we are taping on the day you wish to attend. The Ticket Office is open 9 a.m. - 5 p. m. ET, Monday through Friday at: (212) 664-3056.
