Can I use a VIP Experience purchased via another website?

We strongly discourage the purchasing of VIP Experiences via outlets other than Live Nation and our official ticketing partners, as we cannot guarantee the authenticity of the purchase.

Please note: all VIP Experience information will be sent to the original purchaser, so you will need to ask them to forward any VIP information to you if you have purchased an experience off anyone.

Live Nation VIP reserves the right to cancel the package and/or refuse entry to any patron/s unable to provide the appropriate supporting documentation; this includes the concert ticket. These measures are taken in order to prevent scalping and ensure VIP Experiences and tickets are not purchased by more than one person.
