You'll need your booking reference number if you want to order additional items after you have purchased your tickets online, so keep it safe.

Our ticket partner, SEE Tickets, now offers an ethical and convenient way to re-sell tickets, enabling you to sell and buy spare tickets, safely and securely, at the price you paid or less, via the Fan-to-Fan Marketplace. More information is here.
So, if you have an unwanted ticket and it is sold successfully through the Fan-to-Fan Marketplace, SEE Tickets will send you payment five days after the event takes place. Payment will only be made if the ticket is successfully sold. If it is not, the only time we would offer a ticket refund is if the event is cancelled.
