Bay Area, it’s time to perrear y llorar. Grammy winner Bad Bunny‘s Most Wanted Tour is coming to San Francisco’s Chase Center for two nights this week, Friday, March 1 and Saturday, March 2.

It’s the first time Bay Area fans will get to hear tracks from last year’s ‘nadie sabe lo que va pasar mañana’ album, along with chart-topping tracks like “Yo Perreo Sola” and “un x100to” (full show setlist.) So, if you’re a longtime Bad Bunny fan who secured a ticket to one of these concerts, and you want to focus on enjoying the night rather than worrying about parking or getting home, keep reading our guide to attending a show at Chase Center.

For the most up-to-date details, follow Chase Center on social media for any last-minute updates. And if you’re anything like this author, don’t forget to pregame the show by scrolling through TikToks of fans looking longingly at the man himself, Benito Martínez Ocasio, from the stadium crowd:

What time do the Bad Bunny shows at Chase Center start?

Both of Bad Bunny’s shows at Chase Center on Friday and Saturday start at 8 p.m. Doors will open at 7 p.m.

There will be chances of rain both nights, so while Chase Center is an indoor venue, consider bringing an umbrella or a hooded jacket for your entries and exits.

What’s the Chase Center bag policy?

Backpacks (except for single-compartment drawstring bags) and hard-sided bags of any kind are prohibited from entering Chase Center. Any other bag you bring must be smaller than 14” x 14” x 6” in size.

Bags that do not meet the requirements can be checked at one of two bag check locations for a fee of $10. Chase Center says that proceeds generated from the bag check counters will be donated to the Warriors Community Foundation, which supports education and youth development in the Bay Area.

Here are some more things you cannot bring into the Bad Bunny shows at Chase Center:

  • Bottles and cans.
  • Refillable water bottles.
  • Signs over 11 x 17 inches or attached to any pole or stick.
  • Masks that cover the whole face. (Face coverings to lower your risks of catching — or spreading — COVID-19, like N95 masks, are allowed.)
  • Lights, tripods and professional recording equipment. Flash photography is not allowed.
  • Noise making devices, such as air horns, whistles or cow bells.
  • Weapons and self-defense items of any kind, including mace, knives and tasers.
  • Selfie sticks.

What else can you bring to Chase Center? These items include:

  • Baby bags, plastic bottles, and formula.
  • Diaper bags (with a child).
  • Bags accepted as medical bags.
  • Umbrellas.
  • Binoculars.

While portable phone chargers are not on the prohibited items list (like they initially were at Levi’s Stadium for Taylor Swift’s Eras tour dates last year), Chase Center also offers charging stations compatible with most cell phone devices. Guests may rent a portable charger to take back to their seats at a cost of $2 for every 30 minutes.

Be careful if you’re choosing to stash anything in your vehicle during the show, as break-ins are unfortunately common around the Bay Area. Don’t leave anything on display in your car, especially electronics like laptops — even if you think they’re hidden from view.

How do I know if I’ve got a good seat at the Bad Bunny Chase Center show?

If you are anxious about anything obscuring your sight of the stage or how you want to get to your seat fast, you can check out the view from your seat using Chase Center’s Virtual Venue map.

For what it’s worth, this is the artist’s first tour after splitting from Kendall Jenner in December, so you know some songs are going to be putting Benito — and fans — into his feels. On a personal note for those living in their romantic fantasies, maybe you will have the seat where Benito makes direct eye contact with you and falls in love. You should be reading a book.

What should I know about accessibility at Chase Center?

Chase Center addresses questions about accessibility in their online A to Z Guide, where you can find information about accessible parking, hearing assistance, ADA-compliant restrooms and service animals.

The venue says guests can request complimentary wheelchair escorts by visiting the kiosks located at Portal 13 and Portal 52 or texting 833-CC4FANS.

To schedule an American Sign Language interpreter, guests should contact guestexperiences@warriors.com ahead of time.

What should I know about parking at and near Chase Center?

Currently, the venue’s website refers fans to the third-party parking website ParkWhiz for other non-Chase Center parking options nearby. These spaces may potentially be a bit far from the venue, so consider wearing comfier shoes for the walk over.

A limited number of accessible parking spaces at Chase Center are available for purchase on a first-come, first-served basis and cost between $60 and $100 depending on the size of your vehicle and the event, a Chase Center representative confirmed to KQED. Accessible parking is located at 150 Warriors Way Garage.

What about using rideshare services at Chase Center?

While getting to the venue using a rideshare service might be fairly smooth, finding a car after the show is almost certainly going to be a challenge — speaking from personal experience. Due to surge pricing, it will also be far more expensive to get an Uber or Lyft as you exit the venue.

There are multiple designated pick-up and drop-off zones located within one block of Chase Center. Upon arrival, use one of the designated passenger loading zones (white curbs) along Terry A Francois Boulevard for a safe curbside drop-off.

As you leave the show, the rideshare apps will automatically show you the best places to get picked up within a five-minute walk radius. The Chase Center website recommends walking a few blocks away before requesting a ride.

Accessible drop-offs and pick-ups are along the curb of 16th Street and Terry Francois Boulevard, with accessible entry and exit from the East Entrance. For folks with mobility considerations, the venue can provide a wheelchair to transport guests from Thrive City Plaza or the main lobby to their seats.

What’s the best way to take public transit to the Bad Bunny concert?

Public transit schedules can always be subject to change. Check the timings for your route on the day of the show itself, and be sure of your very last service home.

SF Muni

Any Chase Center patron who shows their event ticket at Muni turnstiles and boarding platforms will be able to ride Muni without charge.

There is a Muni Metro rail stop serving the venue on the T-Third Street line, which connects Chinatown and Sunnydale. See the Muni Metro schedule.

BART

Several BART stations have convenient connections to get to Chase Center.

Muni Route 22 serves as a connection to 16th St. Mission BART station. This stop is located on 3rd Street and Gene Friend Way.

Muni Route 15 serves as a connection to Montgomery St. BART station. This stop is located on 3rd Street and Warriors Way.

You can transfer to the new Union Square Muni Metro rail station from Powell BART station via the underground corridor to take the T-Third Street line or S-Shuttle Mission Bay line to the UCSF/Chase Center stop.

You can find more information and schedules on the BART website.

Caltrain

If you take Caltrain to San Francisco, you can walk 15-20 minutes along 4th Street and turn left on Gene Friend Way to Chase Center.

You can also transfer from the Caltrain station to the Muni Metro T-Third Street platform located across the street and take Muni to the UCSF/Chase Center stop.

On weekdays, the last Caltrain from San Francisco departs at 12:03 a.m. See the Caltrain schedule here.

Biking

Chase Center offers guests free secure bike storage from 1 hour before doors open until one hour after the end of the event.

Public bike parking is available along 16th Street and Terry Francois Boulevard.

There is also a Lyft/Bay Wheels bike share station at the intersection of Warriors Way and Terry Francois Boulevard. While they’re convenient and easy to use, the limited availability of these bikes means you should have a backup plan — or you might get stranded.

Can I still get a ticket for the Bad Bunny shows?

There are tickets still available for night one and night two of Bad Bunny’s San Francisco stint on Ticketmaster — although prices are well over a hundred dollars.

However, Ticketmaster is allowing resale on their own platform for Bad Bunny’s tour, which is the most secure way to buy second-hand tickets. (You can access these by using the filter.)

You can also find resale tickets on sites like StubHub or even on social media, but make sure you’re not purchasing fake tickets.

If you’re buying a resale ticket, a note: The Better Businesses Bureau issued a warning about resale scams during Taylor Swift’s Eras Tour, with many people discovering after sending the money through apps like Venmo or Zelle that these “tickets” never existed. Check out the person’s profile and their past posting history to see if it seems real. And if you do choose to buy a resale, use your credit card, says the BBB. This at least provides some protection for you if the deal was fake.

If you are getting a resale from a friend, make sure you call your friend directly — to make sure someone isn’t impersonating them online.

Are there Bad Bunny after-parties in the Bay Area?

If you want to keep riding the high of seeing your favorite singer — or if you didn’t get tickets — there are some events in San Francisco and Oakland dedicated to Bad Bunny this week.
