Pro tip for faster mobile entry: Add your tickets to your phone's "wallet" and have a fully charged battery.

Mobile tickets are accessed with a smartphone via the Ticketmaster app or mobile site in a QR code format and scanned at the gate for entry.

Once you are within 48 hours of your event, log on to your Ticketmaster account and add the mobile tickets to your Apple Wallet/Google Wallet app. Once you have added to the app, your QR code will be accessible for entry. This bypasses the need for Wi-Fi or cellular data at the gates.

Guests are reminded to fully charge their smartphones prior to arriving at the venue in order to access mobile tickets. Click here for more information.
