Looking for tickets to Book of Mormon and Hamilton?
In the coming months, several highly anticipated events are coming to the Eccles Theater, Capitol Theatre, Abravanel Hall, and the Rose Wagner Performing Arts Center. Tickets are in high demand and ticket resellers (scalpers) are working hard to take your money.
Before you buy a ticket, be sure you are buying from one of two authorized sellers. Authorized tickets for events at Eccles Theater, Capitol Theatre, Abravanel Hall or the Rose Wagner are available at ArtTix or from the presenting organization. No other seller is authorized to sell tickets for these venues.
Ticket resellers take advantage of ticket buyers because Utah has no laws prohibiting scalping. Ticket resellers often gouge unsuspecting buyers by selling tickets at well over the face value or selling tickets to non-existent seats. On occasion, we have seen resellers duplicate tickets and sell two tickets for one seat.
ArtTix, as well as the venues listed above, is owned and operated by Salt Lake County. If you purchase tickets online, be sure you confirm that you are on the right website – artsaltlake.org. You should see the Salt Lake County logo in the footer of the webpage. If you buy tickets directly from the presenting organization, they may provide a link to ArtTix from their website.
Here’s how to ensure you are buying authorized tickets. Buy them:
- In Person. Buy your tickets at an ArtTix ticket office at Abravanel Hall, Capitol Theatre, Eccles Theater, or at the Rose Wagner Performing Arts Center.
- Online. Buy tickets from ArtTix online at artsaltlake.org or through arttix.artsaltlake.org. You will see the Salt Lake County logo in the footer of the website.
- By Phone. Call ArtTix at 801-355-ARTS (2787) and talk to our ticket sellers.
- From the Presenter. Contact the presenting organization and buy directly from them.
If you are in doubt about a ticket, contact ArtTix directly before you buy (801-355-ARTS). Any of our ticket sellers can help you determine if the ticket is genuine with just a few bits of key information on the ticket.
Don’t get burned by a ticket reseller. Buy your tickets at an authorized location. Protect yourself and your wallet!
