John Mayer has announced a tour, which isn’t really big news (unless you’re a fan.) But, what IS news is his new ticket policies including no pre-sale ticketing and Paperless Ticketing for all seats. I, for one, courage this, and hope other artists follow suit.
From John Mayer:
In order to accommodate as many concertgoers as possible and provide an equal opportunity for purchasing tickets, there will be no pre-sale ticketing period for this tour.
Important: many of the venues on the tour will utilize Paperless Ticketing for all seats. Instead of receiving tickets before the event, the credit card used to make the purchase will serve as your ticket. Paperless tickets can be bought and sold via Ticketmaster TicketExchange (resale prices for tickets can be no more than 20% above face value). It is very important to review all the policies of Paperless Ticketing before completing your purchase – details and a helpful FAQ can be found here.
In the event that Paperless Ticketing is not enabled, the venue’s best seats will be available at Will Call only on the night of the show. These will be handled on a venue to venue basis. All those picking up tickets from Will Call must immediately enter the venue. Tickets at Will Call are non-transferable (name changes not permitted).
With these new policies in effect, we encourage you to be wary of any other sources claiming to resell tickets to any shows on this tour.
Please understand that your ongoing support of John is never taken for granted. These new policies are meant to better serve, protect, and accommodate you. Please send feedback, and most importantly, enjoy the shows!
