OT- Hardcopy Tickets

For those of us who prefer the old school "Hardcopy Ticket" you can still go in person to any Ticketmaster/Ticketek booking office they will give you the hardcopy even if the concert is electronic or paperless ticketing, plus the hardcopy is cheaper, less fees.

Thanks for the tip!
Not sure how/if that would work for us (primarily) Lucky Dippers though winking smiley

Scored so many Pit tickets on their last run..
Was thrilled when my last one in Santa Clara was hard copies.. they were stunning!

Same here Colonial. If I can't have paper tickets, I don't go to the show is my rule.

Wow, that is a tough rule, TumblinDice76. I absolutely prefer a physical/paper ticket, but if it means not seeing a show, that seems like I'd only be hurting myself. If there's no paper ticket, I've just printed out something online, cut it to roughly stub size and keep that among my stub collection. Obviously it's not as good though.

And colonial, I'm not even sure if there's a "physical" location for Ticketmaster in my area anymore. I suppose there well could be, but damn if I know where it is. I even just tried googling "ticketmaster locations" and just got directed to ".com" listings.

Unless you want a souvenir buying hard copy tickets doesn't make sense in Germany. Any local ticket booking office has the same access to eventim as you have online. For a lot of shows they offer what the call 'fan ticket', i.e. a computer printed ticket showing a picture of the artist(s) and/or their logo. Strange but true: No Lucky Dip tickets were 'fan tickets'

One thing I'm doing is scanning all my tickets so I have a pdf version. Some of my tickets from the 80s and 90s are starting to fade.

This is now getting hardcopy tickets works for me in New Zealand with Ticketmaster/Ticketek I'm assuming other countries would be the same.The other good thing about it is if ya having trouble with ya electronic ticket or phone paperless app they will give ya a hardcopy but that was only the day before or day of the concert, also there's an instant refund of postponed and cancelled concerts none of this waiting days, weeks for ya money.

Dunno - it was just a random sample of the Hardcopy-FanTickets which can be found on [www.Eventim.de] - (click/tap on the Ticket-logo with the heart).

So far the only show I've had to miss is my beloved Iron Maiden. Every other band usually has a paper ticket option. I had to stand in line way too long at Tinley Park a few eyars ago while they scanned electronic tix. I said never again.

I have stacks of tickets and stubs since the '70's, including a massive collage of tix/stubs I made back in '99, and LOVE them all, but perhaps my ultimate favorites is my Vredenburg ticket w/wristbands.
Nice and colorful and filled with memories, and as my Dutch Grandmother used to say "If it ain't Dutch, it ain't much" winking smiley, and as the red wristband says "LUCKY ME"!

I always choose hardcopy tickets where I can, I plan to make scrapbooks of all the concerts I've been to one day which will include the tickets and a selection of photos I took at each show.

I know we have to change with the times, but before, when all tickets were on paper, there was not a special area over on the side of the stadium entrance to work with all the people who could not get in with their E-Tix!

Starting to get a good collection of cancelled and postponed hardcopy concert tickets, looking like another 2 or 3 will be postponed later in the year
