TSA PreCheck members to get faster entry at some concerts

TSA PreCheck members will soon get faster entry into some concerts, in addition to expedited security screening at the airport.

IdentoGO, the contractor that runs registration for the TSA PreCheck program, said it is partnering with Lakewood Ampitheatre to launch a Fast Pass lane for PreCheck members at some concerts at that venue -- including the Brantley Gilbert concert Friday Aug. 26 and the Florida Georgia Line concert Oct. 22.

At those two concerts, IdentoGO will also have a booth at Lakewood for people to sign up for TSA PreCheck. Registering costs $85 for a membership valid for five years. Those interested must bring a government-issued photo ID with proof of U.S. citizenship such as a passport or birth certificate.

TSA and IdentoGO have been working to sign up more PreCheck members as a way to reduce airport security lines.
