FAQ – Tickets
HOW CAN I SEE IF A TICKET IS FAKE?
All tickets from official ticketsale are sold out now! Do not buy tickets from other people!
Nowadays it’s difficult to see if a ticket is fake and it’s very easy to make a copy or print an e-ticket more times. However, the barcode on the ticket can be used only once at the O2 arena entrance therefore we strongly advise you to buy tickets directly through the official ticket seller Ticketportal to be 100% assured you own a valid ticket. Do not buy tickets on the black market to avoid disappointment. If you buy your ticket any other way than through the official channels, it’s your own responsibility and you have no guarantee that access will be allowed and no right to claim any compensation. (Besides the mentioned official ticket sellers, a limited amount of tickets is sold by our travel partners.)
DOES THE NAME ON THE TICKET NEED TO MATCH THE PERSON ENTERING THE O2 ARENA?
No, the name on the E-ticket does not need to match with the person entering the O2 arena. The barcode is what matters and what is checked.
