The best way to save money on concert tickets is to buy your tickets as soon as you can.
The best way to save money on concert tickets is to buy your tickets as soon as you can. Concerts often sell out very quickly, so you’ll need to plan ahead and buy tickets in advance. Ideally, you want to be ready to purchase your concert tickets as soon as they go on sale. When the ticket office first makes these new show tickets available, the price is usually at its lowest point for that venue show. Also, this gives you more time to prepare for the concert, because if you wait too long it might be sold out and then you miss the show off entirely!
Buy tickets ahead of time if they are not sold out yet.
If the concert you want to see is not sold out, buy your tickets as soon as possible. Tickets go on sale at least a month before the concert. There are three main ways you can get tickets for a show.
- Buy them from the venue in person or online
- Buy them from a ticket broker
- Buy them from an online ticket marketplace like StubHub or Ticketmaster
The best seats tend to sell out first, so it is important to pick up your tickets before they are gone.
Book your seats early and do not choose seats that are too low or too high.
If you’re going to take the time and hassle to go to a concert, why not do it right? Book your tickets early. If you wait until a few days before the show, there’s always a chance that popular shows will sell out and you’ll be forced to settle for the back row or worse. But if you book well in advance, there’s still a good chance that even if all of the tickets are gone—you can still get decent seats with plenty of legroom.
Another thing to keep in mind: don’t pick seats too low or too high. You’ll be paying $100+ for reserved seats and then have to squeeze into them anyway. What’s the point? Trust us: We’ve been there before!
Do not fall in love with a seat or a view.
Buying tickets from scalpers or ticket touts can be risky, so I would recommend avoiding them. You may not even know if they are genuine until you get to the concert venue. Buying tickets from an agency is also expensive as they generally add a booking fee of around 10% on top of the price of the ticket.
Choose a seat for your needs and for the price.
When choosing tickets, consider your needs and the price you’re willing to pay.
- Choose a seat that is not too low or too high.
- Don’t buy tickets on the first row, because they are often expensive and might have a restricted view of the stage.
- Avoid seats in the balcony, as they can be very far from the stage.
- Choose a seat that is near to the stage. Each venue has its own sweet spot; for example, at some venues you can get closer to the stage if you sit further to one side (you may miss part of what happens on one side of the stage but see more of what happens centerstage).
Avoid the rush. You’ll end up saving more.
When it comes to getting cheap concert tickets, patience is the absolute key. Buying on the day of an event or in the hours leading up to it can be a recipe for disaster. Not only do you risk missing out on getting a ticket at all, but you also won’t see any savings since that’s when prices skyrocket.
Buy from a place that will refund you if you cannot use the ticket.
You can save a lot of money by buying from websites that will give you a refund if something goes wrong with your tickets.
If you buy through a marketplace, like StubHub or Vivid Seats, then you have the right to get your money back if the ticket is invalid. Their money-back guarantee is good because they can take legal action against anyone who tries to rip them off—and you get to take advantage of this protection when you buy tickets from their site.
Buy from a trusted vendor who is available to answer any questions you have about their offers.
As you look into the many different companies who offer cheap concert tickets, one of the main things you should be on the lookout for is a company with a reputation. You want to find a company that has a good reputation and that has been in business long enough to prove themselves. If they have been in business for less than three years, it may be difficult to determine whether or not their claims are true or if they are legitimate.
If you do find such a company, make sure to check out their customer service and whether or not they will be able to help you with any questions about their offers. A reputable company will always be willing to answer your questions and give you advice as well as provide assistance if something goes wrong with your purchase.
Tickets are sold out as soon as they’re available, so hurry!
As soon as you hear that your favorite band is going on tour, you should buy tickets. Shows sell out quickly and sometimes within minutes or even seconds of tickets becoming available. That’s because there are so many people trying to buy the same limited amount of tickets at once. It’s almost impossible to get a ticket if you wait until day of sale, especially for popular artists and venues.
If you’re serious about seeing a performer and plan to go their show in the first few months of their tour, it’s best to buy your tickets as early as possible. Often they’ll be cheaper during this time than later in the tour—you could end up saving hundreds of dollars! But be wary: some websites will try to charge outrageous prices for resale tickets that may not even be legitimate. It’s safer to use authorized sellers like Ticketmaster, LiveNation and StubHub where you can check out reviews from other users before buying from an individual seller.
