There’s nothing worse than getting excited for a particular concert or event in Atlanta, only to find that the performance is sold out or that all of the great seats are already taken.
Tips for Purchasing Event Tickets
That’s why we have put together a number of great tips that ensure you get what you want, when you want it, while also saving a few bucks.
Be Aware of Online Pre-Sales
Most performers offer concert and event tickets to a particular group of fans before they go on sale to the general public. If one of your favorite artists is coming to the greater Atlanta region, check out their website to see if they offer some type of fan club. If they have something like this, consider signing up as fan club members tend to receive exclusive access to great perks like:
- Front row seat tickets at discounted rates.
- Backstage access.
- Direct access to new albums or content before they are offered to the public.
Keep An Eye Out For Promotional Codes
Artists and cred card companies both offer promotional codes at various times that allow their fans/members to save big when it comes to purchasing tickets online.
There are a tremendous amount of beneficiaries that offer presale promotional codes throughout online ticket companies, while radio stations and other event sponsors usually offer presale codes to their listeners/followers in the days leading up to the event.
Mark Your Calendar or Set A Reminder On Your Phone
If you aren’t interested in scouring the Internet for codes or paying membership fees, getting your tickets the day they go on sale is another viable option to consider.
Although you may not get the seats you are most interested in, you can still save a few bucks on handling fees if you purchase your tickets at the box office, in person. Most venues offer discounted prices when you purchase your tickets ahead of the performance date, so set some type of reminder for yourself so that you aren’t rushing around on the day of the event.
Plan Ahead and Go Online
If you are interested in checking out a particular performance and aren’t interested in leaving the house or you’re stuck at work, just go online about 15 minutes before the online sale launches. Going to our website prior to a particular sale allows you to enter the ticket pool ahead of other fans and gives our site the ability to recognize your order.
Take Advantage of Multiple Devices
Depending on the event you’re interested in, some ticket websites allow you to make transaction requests from multiple browsers. If you are able to, try to get online prior to the opening sale and open up the following browsers at the same time:
- Google Chrome
- Internet Explorer
- Safari (Mac users)
If you are really interested in maximizing your opportunities, you can also take your mobile or tablet device and replicate this action, giving you a significant competitive edge when it comes to obtaining your tickets before they sell out.
What to Do If the Event or Concert Is Sold-Out
Most artists and venues reserve particular seats for special guests, which is why most shows overestimate the amount of tickets they will need in order to launch a successful show.
When these seats are properly accounted for and if such guests do not plan on attending, their seats are often released to the general public a few days before the show.
So make sure you keep an eye out for this opportunity by continuously checking the artist and venue’s websites.
