Can you explain the ticket types?
Regardless of which delivery method you select, you will always have the option to sign into account manager to get your mobile ticket, print your ticket at home, or go to a box office to have your ticket printed for you.

I ordered a ticket but lost it. What do I do?
The most recent ticket that you pulled up will be the valid ticket. For example, if you printed a ticket at home a few days prior, lost that tickets and printed a new one, the first ticket that you printed is no longer valid. Now let’s say on the day of the event, you left your printed ticket in the car. You can go to the box office to have them issue you a new ticket, or you can pull your mobile ticket up on your smartphone. The printed ticket in your car is no longer valid, but the ticket that you have in hand (from the box office or on your smart phone) is.

I ordered a ticket but want to transfer it to a friend. Can I do that?
Absolutely! Once you have purchased a ticket, it will appear in your homepage and you will be able to manage your tickets including transferring it to a friend. After you’ve selected the event, click on “manage this event”. You will see a “transfer tickets” option to select. Then, check off the ticket (“seat”) that you would like to transfer and hit the “transfer” button up at the top right hand corner. You will then be asked to confirm that you would like to continue with the transfer. Now it’s time to identify who you would like to transfer these tickets to. If you already have recipients in your address book, it’s easy. Just select their name, select whether you would like them to see the ticket prices or not, and hit “next steps”. If you do not have your recipient in your address book, hit “create new contact” and follow the steps. They will now also be saved into your address book.
