I am sorry about the misunderstanding. It is normal practice to pre-authorize the credit cards during special events and sold out nights. This is an authorization only and it is released by us upon checkout. However, depending on your bank it can take up to 3-5 business days. Again I do apologize for the misunderstanding.
