Please Be Careful

Please be aware that if you don't buy your tickets from authorised outlets you run the risk of being refused entry to the venue or not getting any refund if the event is cancelled or postponed.

If you choose not to use the ticket buying options below and are unsure of the legitimacy of a ticket outlet, we suggest you check the official artist or promoter website.

For more information go to the Small Print section at the bottom of this page.

And don't forget, if you are buying tickets for anyone 14 years or under we advise you purchase a seated ticket in the Tiers. Please be aware that during concerts people may stand up.

Please visit our Terms & Conditions page for further information.


The Small Print

The decision to liquidate the company trading as getmetickets.net and the television exposé by the BBC on its Inside Out programme highlighted the practice of 'secondary ticket selling', otherwise known as 'touting' or 'scalping'.

Although the practice of 'secondary ticket selling' (otherwise known as 'touting') is not illegal it is strictly against the Terms & Conditions of the Box Office. Condition 7 states "If this ticket is re-sold or transferred for profit or commercial gain by anyone other than the promoter, venue management, Eventim or one of their authorised sub-agents, it will become void and the holder may be refused entry or ejected from the venue".

Any customer who purchases tickets from these sources automatically loses their rights as a consumer and would be unable to obtain a refund from the venue should the event be cancelled or postponed or should their ticket be voided.

The largest, and probably most worrying, growth in 'secondary ticketing' is through internet auction sites: as with the apparently legitimate websites that advertise 'premium' tickets for sale, and the more obvious 'touts' selling outside the venue, there are no guarantees that the tickets purchased from these sites will guarantee the ticket holder entry into the venue.

At a number of events (particularly the high profile concerts) it is estimated that up to 30% of transactions conducted on these 'secondary ticketing' sites are either fraudulent or result in the ticket holder being refused entry into the venue.

Customers should ONLY purchase tickets from legitimately authorised outlets if they wish to ensure that they get in to see their favourite artist.

We do not accept letters of authority for ticket collections, as this system can be abused by secondary ticket markets. If you have any queries about your booking, please contact your point of purchase directly.
