Notice to Secondary Ticket Buyers

  • The ONLY authorized sales agents for PNC Arena tickets are the Ticket Office presented by Ticketmaster and Ticketmaster.com.
  • The ONLY authorized ticket resale service for PNC Arena tickets is Ticketmaster’s TicketExchange.

Tickets purchased from any other sources may not be valid. PNC Arena is not able to honor, replace or refund invalid tickets. TicketExchange is the only ticket resale site that is able to authenticate that a PNC Arena ticket is valid. Other resellers may offer money-back guarantees, but they are unable to guarantee entry to an event as they are not able to validate that a ticket or seat location is authentic.

Customers with invalid tickets are welcome to purchase additional tickets - seating location and price is based upon availability.

Consumers should report fraudulent ticket sales to the point of purchase and consumer protection agencies.
