Hints and tips for improving your chances of getting Ed Sheeran tickets during the day of the general sale

What can you do to help secure those tickets? Notepads at the ready! Check out these top tips to improve your chances of getting Ed Sheeran tickets when they become available.

  1. Open your account and log in now – Get the details out of the way before tickets are available by logging in and checking your Ticketmaster account ahead of time. We recommend checking passwords, delivery address and billing information now, to reduce any stress when processing your order later. Head to Ticketmaster.co.uk and log in to your account to get started.
  2. Don’t refresh your screen – Stick to one window when you’re being pushed through the virtual queue and always resist the urge to refresh. Hitting the refresh button means you’ll lose your place in the queue and, as frustrating as it can get, patience is the only way to win this game. Ticketmaster is equipped with sophisticated systems that are designed to manage and process ticket purchases as quickly as possible. The queuing system that appears on your screen is actually doing something and will place you at the front of the line as soon as possible.
  3. Don’t oversleep on the date of the general sale – That would be disastrous!
