How Ticketing Works For Garth Brooks/Plus ONE 2024 Las Vegas Residency

Garth Brooks has announced new shows for his Las Vegas Residency, Garth Brooks/Plus ONE at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas and is using Verified Fan to ensure more tickets get into the hands of concertgoers.

Verified Fan requires registration to help filter out buyers looking to resell tickets, and instead get them into the hands of fans who want to attend the show.

Demand is expected to be high for these shows, so registering for Verified Fan is your best chance at getting tickets to see Garth Brooks live. While Verified Fan doesn’t guarantee that everyone who registers will get a ticket, it does help ensure only fans are invited to purchase tickets.

Registration is now open and closes on Thursday, May 25 at 5 p.m. PT.

How Does Ticketmaster Verified Fan Work?

Artists choose to use Verified Fan to give their fans a better chance at buying tickets by creating an extra line of defense against bots and professional resellers who are looking to sell tickets for profit. The process includes three steps:

Step 1: Registration

By registering for a Verified Fan Onsale, you are letting us know that you’re interested in purchasing tickets. From the registration page, you sign in to your account, select your preferred show(s) and register your email and phone number. Once completed, you’ll automatically receive a confirmation email letting you know that we got your request. It’s quick, easy and free to sign up.

Step 2: Verification

Next, Ticketmaster vets each request by confirming it belongs to an individual — not a bot — and that it hasn’t been tied to irregular behaviors that could be a sign of a professional seller attempting to access the sale.

Step 3: Access Code or Waitlist

When demand exceeds availability, a lottery-style process will determine which registered Verified Fans get an access code for the sale, and which are put on a waitlist. You’ll receive an email the day prior to the ticket sale letting you know which group you’re in.

  • Access Code: If you receive an access code, it will be sent via text message. It is unique to your account, and will not work if anyone else enters it — do not try to sell or trade your code. Do not buy codes from anyone else. 
  • Waitlist: If tickets remain, we may text you an access code to join the ticket sale. The lottery-style process will be used to determine who gets off the waitlist.

While it doesn’t guarantee that all Verified Fans will get tickets, it does significantly block bots and professional resellers from competing against fans for tickets during the sale.


Common Questions

Can I register more than once to increase my invitation status?

Only one registration is required, and registering more than once won’t increase your opportunity to receive an invitation. If after you’ve registered, you want to change the dates you selected, just come back and register with your new picks. We only keep the last registration you submitted.

If I edit my registration more than once, will I be disqualified?

No, you won’t be disqualified. If you edit your registration more than once to correct a mistake, such as changing the show you previously selected, we only keep the last registration that you submitted.

I received a registration confirmation email, does that mean I will get tickets?

No, registration does not guarantee tickets. The registration confirmation email is simply to inform you that we have received your information and will be working to verify your account.

A second email will be sent the day before the Verified Fan Onsale letting you know if you will receive a unique access code or if you’ve been placed on the waitlist.

When will I receive an email letting me know if I’ll receive a unique access code or be placed on the waitlist?

On Tuesday, May 30, you’ll receive an email confirming if you’ve been selected to participate in the Verified Fan Onsale. If you are verified and selected, you will also receive a text with your personal access code.

When submitting my registration, I received a six-digit authentication code from Ticketmaster. Can I use this code to purchase tickets during the Verified Fan Onsale?

No, that code was sent to you to verify your phone number at registration. It is not a unique Verified Fan code and cannot be used to purchase tickets.

Does registering mean I get a Verified Fan access code?

No. Registration for Verified Fan allows Ticketmaster to authenticate your account and places your request into a lottery-style process to determine which registered Verified Fans get an access code and which fans are placed on the waitlist. Access to tickets is not guaranteed.

If you’re selected, you’ll receive a unique access code and link to the sale via text message. If you aren’t selected, you’ll be automatically placed on a waitlist and may be invited to join the sale if tickets remain.

Does getting an access code mean I will get tickets?

No. Receiving an access code means that you’ll have the opportunity to join the sale. Tickets are available on a first-come, first-served basis so they may sell out.

When is the Verified Fan Onsale?

The Verified Fan Onsale takes place on Wednesday, May 31. All shows will be assigned specific sale windows which will be communicated prior to the start of the onsale.

If I am selected, how long do I have to shop for tickets?

While we suggest you purchase as soon as you are able, we understand there may be some planning involved.

How will I know if I move off the Waitlist?

Keep your phone close by as your text notification can come at any time after the sale begins. When notified, you’ll receive a text message that has the link to the sale and contains your unique access code. You’ll also want to closely watch your email just in case there are text delivery issues such as an incorrectly entered number or blocked carriers. In that case we’ll email your access code details to the address you use for your Ticketmaster account.

Will there be a way to purchase tickets other than the Verified Fan sales?

The only way to get Garth Brooks / Plus One tickets is through the Ticketmaster Verified Fan sales.
