Your tickets are being attacked by bots! No, not science fiction robots. We’re talking automated programs that ticket scalpers use to tie up our system and buy up big blocks of tickets, blocking you from getting any. Scalpers want to grab all of the tickets so they can resell them at a higher price to fans later. Thankfully, we have weapons to help stop that from happening – warped words. Read on to learn how these little words help save the day for real live fans like you.
On June 9, the Ticketmaster App was updated for iOS7. Our goal of the update was to make the app easier to use, more intuitive, faster and simpler.

We want to help keep you informed and up-to-date about all live events and improve your live event experience while making our application for iOS more simplistic.
