For some of the bigger events that go on sale, a lot of the time the demand is higher than the tickets available to purchase. While tickets are not guaranteed, here are some tips to follow to give yourself the best chance of securing tickets for your favourite artist or event.
Open your Account & UPDATE!
First things first, make sure you have created a Ticketmaster account. If you already have an account, login now and make sure all your details are correct. Click here and go do it now, we'll wait....
Make sure your account has the right name and address with your Post Code in Northern Ireland & Eir Code in Ireland (Don't know your Eir Code? Click here to search it ). This will save you time at checkout and lower those stress levels.
Add your Card Details
Save your debit or credit card details to your account. This way when you nab those tickets you won't have to fill in any card details at checkout, instead your details will be waiting for you and all you'll have to do is confirm your purchase.
Don't Refresh your Screen
Stick to one browser and one tab, and whatever you do, don't hit that refresh button! Having more than one browser and tab open will risk you losing your tickets.
DO NOT click refresh! This will lose you your place in the queue. Ticketmaster is equipped with sophisticated systems that are designed to manage and process ticket purchases as quickly as possible. The queuing system that appears on your screen is actually doing something and will place you at the front of the line as soon as possible. Don't stress, just follow the instructions on screen and wait it out.
Keep up to Date
Keep up-to-date with news at Twitter.com/TicketmasterIre and Facebook.com/TicketmasterIE. If anything changes with tickets, our social followers will be the first to know about it. We send real-time updates as the general sales happen, including any technical difficulties that might occur and alerts on when new tickets come available.
Get Online at Home
Or work (we won't tell). Using shared public Wi-Fi networks can slow you down when you've got a need for speed!
Keep Checking Back
If you find yourself without tickets, keep checking back to the Ticketmaster website. On occasion, extra tickets are released anywhere from one week up to a few hours before a big event.
Each week from now until July, we're giving you the chance to win two tickets to some of the hottest shows of the year.
