    I am heading to the states in a few weeks time.

    i am trying to buy a ticket for a gig over there of ticketmaster.

    However its asking for verification of a US mobile number.

    It wont accept irish mobile.

    Anybody have this problem?

    How did you get around it.

    Its been a long while since i bought TM tickets for a US event, but i do remember, i had a choice of using “will call”, which means you collect them, at the box office at the venue, on the day of the event. In the end, a friend in the US, bought them for me, and couriered the tickets over to me here.

    Its likely all changed now, but the “will call” option is still on the Tm . Com help page:

    and the mobile ticket app won’t work outsode of US/Canada, but you can still use the mobile website:

    You may have to email support,on the phone number verification, if there is no way around it, get someone over there to buy for you, or else, see is there other ticket sellers, sellling them, like but there are many others

    I bought tickets this week for Nine Inch Nails gig in the States, just using standard login but via rather than .IE. had to update my details re country etc, but no issues for me

    opted for mobile tickets, have the app downloaded and can see them there, barcodes etc
