Presale Tips

Buying presale tickets has a variety of perks. These are sales that take place before they become available to the general public, making some of the best seats available at great prices.

What is a Presale?

A presale is a period of time when tickets for an event go on sale to a specified group of fans, typically as a reward for being a loyal member and/or customer. This select group will be given a code (usually via email) in advance, which will give them the ability to search and buy tickets before anyone else. *Note: not all fans are guaranteed a ticket during a presale, but they do have a considerable advantage compared to other fans who don’t have a code.
