Getting Into the Event

When it’s time for the event, the Mobile ID through the AXS App is the recommended form of entry, but if you don't have access to a smartphone, you may use the credit card you used to purchase the tickets.

Here's how it works:

  1. Get the AXS app if you haven't already
  1. Open the App and sign in to see your tickets
  1. Show the ticket in the App at the entrance and get them scanned to enter. Have fun!

Bought tickets for a group? Make sure everyone enters together OR transfer tickets to friends before the event (if transfer is available)

With Mobile ID, how will the usher know where to seat me?

Your tickets and seat locations can be viewed in the AXS App, which you can show to the usher. At select venues, you’ll get a printout with your seat locations, and you can show the printout to an usher to find your seats.

I have Mobile ID, but forgot my phone. What do I do?

Please go to the box office for help. You’ll need to provide some form of ID and verification info previously entered in your AXS account.

I have Mobile ID tickets that I bought for a group. How do we all enter the venue?

You have two options:

  • Make sure everyone enters together. Show the tickets on your phone for everyone in your group.


  • Transfer tickets to friends (for select events). If you’re not arriving as a group, you can transfer tickets to friends straight from your AXS account. Then your friends can get in with their own phones using the AXS app.

Transferring Tickets

What is transfer?

A ticket transfer allows you to digitally send each guest in your party their own Mobile ID and use the AXS app for entry. With seat transfers, you no longer have to worry about delivering the paper tickets to them in advance or meeting guests in before the event to walk in together.

Note that some areas within some venues may be non-transferable. Refer to your order to review whether your tickets are transferable.

Here's how it works:

  1. Click the Transfer button next to the event in your AXS account.
  1. Select the tickets to transfer and enter the recipient's information.
  1. On the review page, click the Transfer button to send the tickets.

The recipient will get an email about the transfer, and they’ll need to create an AXS account (if they don’t have one yet) to complete the transfer. After that, the tickets will be theirs to use with the AXS App.

Is there a fee for transferring seats?

No, there is no fee for transferring seats.

How will I know if my transfer was successful?

Review your transfer history within the AXS app by clicking on MY EVENTS and selecting TRANSFERRED. You may also review your transfers and purchase history at AXS.com.

How do I accept Transferred Tickets?

If you already have an AXS account, the tickets will be transferred to your account automatically. Otherwise, you’ll get an email letting you know you need to create an AXS account to claim the tickets. Just follow the simple steps to make the tickets officially yours.

Once I have downloaded the AXS App and created my AXS account, do I have to accept the transfer every time?

Nope. Once you have an account, seats transferred to you will be accepted by your account automatically (no need to accept them manually).

Can seats be transferred to someone who doesn’t have an AXS account?

Yep! They’ll just have to create an AXS account to claim their tickets.

They’ll also need to get the AXS App. When it’s time for the event, they can open the app to show their tickets on their phone.

Can I cancel a transfer?

It depends. If your friend already has an AXS account, the tickets will be transferred instantaneously. Otherwise you have until your friend creates an account to cancel the transfer.

Remember, your friends can always transfer tickets back to you.

Buying Tickets

Tickets for all venues can be purchased on AXS.com or the AXS app. Simply search for an event and click on GET TICKETS to begin your purchase.

Non-Transferable Tickets

If your tickets are not qualified for transfer, you (the original purchaser) MUST arrive at the entrance with your entire party and present your Mobile ID using their AXS App.
