How to get Lewis Capaldi tickets?
Ticketmaster is selling tickets for all three outdoor end of summer concerts - which are Lewis Capaldi’s last UK shows of 2023. The company’s website offers the following advice for helping you secure high demand tickets:
Create a Ticketmaster account in advance: “If you don’t already have an account with us, create a brand new online account before the tickets go on sale. This will allow you to store your address and credit card details, so you don’t have to rush to type them all in when you’re trying to book.”
Check your passwords and billing details: “If you already have an online account, check that you know your password and all your details are up to date before tickets go on sale. If you’ve forgotten your password, don’t worry, there’s an option to have a new one emailed to you.
“Please also make sure your address is correct if you’ve moved house recently. If you’re signed up to Verified by Visa or MasterCard Secure Code, make sure that you know your password before tickets go on sale.”
Never load our site in more than one browser window: “Only have our site loaded in one window in your web browser – things can get extremely messy otherwise, and you might end up losing tickets you’re holding as our website will only allow you to make one booking at a time.”
Don’t refresh your screen: “Stick to one window when you’re being pushed through the virtual queue and always resist the urge to refresh. Hitting the refresh button means you’ll lose your place in the queue and, as frustrating as it can get, patience is the only way to win this game.
“Ticketmaster is equipped with sophisticated systems that are designed to manage and process ticket purchases as quickly as possible. The queuing system that appears on your screen is actually doing something and will place you at the front of the line as soon as possible.
“Other than that, just be sure to be on our website bright and early for when the tickets are released, and we wish you the best of luck!”
