Buying concert tickets can be very frustrating. The crowd is unbearable, and there seems to be a shortage of tickets. However, with some planning, you can buy concert tickets and enjoy the show. Here are some tips that might be helpful.
You should start preparing the moment you hear about your favourite band or singer performing. You should try to find out where and when it will be held, when the tickets are going to be out and how you can get them.
Be on the band’s mailing list and social media page
The tours are usually announced directly through social media or emails. So, by staying on the mailing list and social media page, you can get the announcement early and try to get a ticket for the concert.
Be on the local venue mailing list
You should sign up at the local venue mailing list so that you get notification whenever there is a concert, and the time they will start selling the tickets. They often offer pre-sales, and you will get notifications about that too. Register with the ticket agencies as well.
Know the seating plan
You should find out about the seating plan before you buy the ticket. That way, you can book the ticket accordingly. Note down the block numbers that you like.
Different mobile phone or credit card providers, who are usually the sponsors, often sell some tickets on their websites. These are often available before the general sale. So, learn about the sponsors beforehand and visit their website or social media page to stay updated.
On the sale day, you should log in to the ticket-selling site from midnight or early morning. You should keep on refreshing the site so that you can get a chance to buy the tickets. Tickets often reappear after some time. Also, people may cancel a ticket at the last moment so you can get a chance to buy a ticket.
Keep calling the ticket agencies and visit them in person. The queue at the ticket counters usually starts the day before. It’s an amazing feeling holding that golden ticket in your heart. Not everyone gets a chance to watch concerts. So, once you buy the ticket, make sure that you make all the arrangements to have a good time.
