We strongly recommend that you only purchase tickets through our official ticket partner Ticketmaster.  No other agents are authorised to sell and any listing on an unauthorised site cannot be guaranteed to gain entry to the events. We’ve seen lots of customers be scammed by purchasing tickets through sites such as eBay, Gumtree, Stubhub, Viagogo etc. Unofficial sites do not give you the same rights and protections. Be aware and don’t fall for a scam. These tickets might not even exist and if you turn up with a fake ticket you’ll be turned away from the event so don’t chance it. We recommend you only purchase through our official ticket partners. Our official resale partner is Ticketmaster Fan-to-Fan Exchange.

We only permit ticket resale at face value through Ticketmaster Fan-to-Fan Exchange. Please do not use ticket sites such as eBay, Gumtree, Stubhub, or Viagogo where tickets may be available at hugely inflated prices. Buying through these websites also runs the risk of being sold tickets that may not actually exist.

We recommend that you purchase tickets in advance to avoid disappointment. Should there be tickets left for sale these can be purchased on the day via Ticketmaster.
With mobile tickets, you can have these delivered to your Ticketmaster app on your phone straight away saving you from having to collect these at the box office.
Please note that our box offices will only be accepting card payments – cash will not be permitted.
