Ticket Information

While tickets for many dates sold out quickly, there are still opportunities to purchase through official resale platforms like AXS and Ticketmaster. However, fans are advised to be cautious of inflated prices on secondary markets and to purchase only through verified sellers to ensure ticket authenticity.

To combat ticket scalping, both AXS and Ticketmaster have implemented measures to cap resale prices. This ensures that tickets remain accessible to true fans rather than being exploited by third-party resellers. Many have praised this move, though the demand for tickets remains incredibly high.
