Additional Questions

  • How do e-Tickets work?

    It’s fast, simple, and convenient! Here’s how it works:

    • Choose e-Tickets as your delivery method.
    • Buy your ticket(s).
    • View tickets
      Access your tickets by visiting the Upcoming Events page of your account and clicking the “View Tickets” button beneath the concert date. Your tickets will appear in a separate window for you to print. You may also log into your account via your smart phone and click “View Tickets” to open the ticket file so it can be scanned directly from your phone.
    • Bring your printed tickets to the concert, or access the tickets on your phone.
      Your tickets will be scanned at the gate for entry to the event. Enjoy!
  • Are there benefits to choosing e-Tickets?

    Yes! Savings and Convenience.

    • When you select e-Tickets as an options, we’ll waive the $3.75 per ticket handling fee!
    • You get your tickets right away, without waiting in Will Call lines at the Box Office or for mail delivery.
    • You print them out anytime. No more worrying about misplacing your tickets!
    • You can forward them to others attending the event so they can print their own tickets and meet you at your seats.
  • Do I need any special hardware or software to use e-Tickets?

    You probably already have everything you need. All you need are:

    • A smart phone. Our tickets work on your phone. Just click the link in your confirmation page as you arrive at the hall for your concert.
    • If you don’t have a smart phone, you can still print your tickets from home. Any inkjet or laser printer (color or black & white) with a resolution of 300 dpi or more is able to print e-Tickets. Use 8.5” x 11” size plain white paper for best results. (If you’re unsure of your printer’s resolution/dpi, check the printer manual.)
    • Adobe Acrobat Reader 5.0 or higher. If you do not have it, download it now free.
  • Will this ticket be accepted for the event?


  • What if I print more than one copy of my ticket or a photocopy of my ticket is made?

    Only the first scan of the barcode on your ticket will be allowed entry.

    Make sure you keep the printed ticket in a safe place like you would cash, and protect it just like you would any other ticket! If more than one copy were to arrive, the barcode scanner will alert the attendant that the ticket has already been scanned. If there is a dispute, a representative from New York Philharmonic’s Customer Relations will investigate further. Only one person will be admitted per barcode.

  • Why aren’t e-Tickets available for all events?

    Only venues with the appropriate ticket scanning equipment can offer e-Tickets.
