If Ticketmaster shelled out some free ticket vouchers for you, get ready to take a road trip to use them.

After a class-action settlement over UPS and order processing fees, Ticketmaster issued ticket vouchers and credits for those who bought tickets from Oct. 21, 1999, to Feb. 27, 2013.  According to the site’s settlement information page, Ticketmaster will make up to $10 million worth of tickets available through May 2017, based on redemption rates.

Vouchers are limited to general admission tickets and there is a maximum of 17 claims per account. Ticketmaster users can check if they have vouchers by logging into their accounts.

A few venues in the Central Texas area use Ticketmaster, such as the H-E-B Center at Cedar Park, but currently the only shows in Texas eligible for free tickets are taking place at the Gexa Energy Pavilion in Dallas, located just southeast of the Cotton Bowl Stadium.

This means local tour dates for acts such as Gwen Stefani, who plays the Austin360 Amphitheater this summer, are not eligible for ticket voucher use.

Ticketmaster’s site does note “the list of eligible events will be periodically updated.” This comes after users experienced difficulty loading the event list this past weekend.

As for the music, fans of radio rock are the most in luck. The outdoor amphitheater in Dallas will host some big shows, such as a stop on Black Sabbath’s farewell tour, a show by ’80s rockers Def Leppard and gigs by newer acts like Slipknot, Weezer and supergroup Prophets of Rage.

Check out the full list of Texas shows below, or if you’re interested in traveling further than Dallas, the full list of more than 400 eligible shows can be found here.
