Third Party Ticket Resellers

Be aware of scalpers!

For the best seats, the best prices, and to eliminate the risk of counterfeit tickets, all purchases for the Detroit engagement should be made through or

 You should note that the resale of event tickets in Michigan is legal. You will find event tickets on sale at ticket broker websites. Though brokers are never the primary sales point, they access tickets by purchasing them in the same way as the consumer. Please keep in mind, that when you buy from a broker:

a. We cannot be responsible for tickets purchased through unauthorized third parties.
b. We cannot replace your tickets if they are lost or stolen.
c. We cannot issue a refund to you in case of an event cancellation.
d. We cannot guarantee that your tickets are valid and therefore, cannot guarantee admittance.
e. You may be paying much more than the ticket’s face value.
f. We cannot contact you with information regarding time changes, show cancellations or other information.
g. We cannot locate your tickets in our system.

If you are tempted to purchase tickets through a resale site, ticketmaster veried is your best alternate option. There you can purchase verified tickets from consumers who are no longer able to use their previously purchased verifieded fan ticket.
