I purchased using Ticketmaster - what can I do if I can't make my event?

Remember that if a show is cancelled or reschedule, you may be entitled to a refund. Speak to your ticketing provider directly before you list your ticket for resale.

Most of our ticketing partners have a resale platform which is created for fan-to-fan resale to avoid touts making a profit from genuine fans.

You can use Priority on an iPad if you have a Pay Monthly or Pay As You Go mobile phone on O2 and your iPad is your secondary device

If the only device you have on O2 is an iPad, then unfortunately you can't use Priority because iPads can’t receive the SMS that allows you to register.

Why am I unable to access Priority?

If your number recently connected with O2 it might be that our Priority database hasn’t caught up yet and your number is not currently recognised. It should work in a few days, at most.

Each quarter we calculate how much you’ve topped-up, we then give you back 10% of your top-up’s value (just so you know, you’ll only get 5% if you’ve been an O2 Pay As You Go customer for less than 6 months). We will then text you to tell you how much you’ve earned. It’s then up to you to choose if you want to Claim it straight away as air-time, or Save it in your rewards bank for a time that suits you. Remember, if you don’t Claim or Save your rewards for that quarter you will lose them.

When do I get my reward?

Each quarter starts on the:
4 January / 4 April / 4 July / 4 October.

What can I spend my rewards on?

You can use your O2 Rewards to get a high street voucher, or extra credit for calls, texts and data. You can even put them towards a new phone, or get money off tickets to a gig or a show. Please note, you must have a saved balance of at least £10 to order a voucher. If you choose to redeem vouchers to gigs or shows they will be facilitated via Ticketmaster and you’ll get sent a promotional code to enter online when you book.

About Priority Tickets

What are Priority Tickets?

As an O2 customer, you can buy tickets up to 48 hours before general release to thousands of gigs and events at The O2, our 20 O2 Academy venues and loads of other venues across the UK. Because when you’re on O2, you come first.

How do I find out which events have Priority Tickets?

To see what's on and find details of Priority Tickets, look at the Tickets section on Priority. You can search all tickets, and even view by genre using the tabs at the top of the page. Check the site regularly for full details of current Priority Tickets.

Buying Priority Tickets

How do I buy Priority Tickets?

Everyone on O2 can buy Priority Tickets online at https://priority.o2.co.uk/tickets or by downloading the Priority app. These platforms include links to the ticket purchase page on AXS.com, Ticketmaster or other ticket vendors. You can only buy Priority Tickets while the offer is running and if they’re still available.

How many Priority Tickets can I buy?

It varies for each event. Usually you can buy up to six tickets for each event, but sometimes it’s less. It's always best to check the terms and conditions when you click through to purchase the tickets.

Can I resell my ticket if I can't attend an event?

Our partners at Ticketmaster and AXS.com both have their own reselling platform where you can resell tickets purchased directly from them. We strongly advise you use only these platforms and that you do not resell your tickets on unofficial platforms as your tickets may be cancelled or invalid for entry.

What is the Waiting Room?

The Waiting Room is a feature used by one of our ticketing partners, AXS.com. For popular events, there are often thousands of fans trying to get the same tickets. On top of that, some people use ticket-buying “bots” to get tickets with the sole intention of reselling them later for a profit.

The Waiting Room for Priority Tickets events on AXS opens 30 minutes before ticket sales begin. Once the waiting room opens, AXS weed out the bots and then randomly choose fans to search for tickets. While tickets are not guaranteed, the waiting room allows more real fans like you to get their fair shot at seats.

Seating and Accessibility

If I buy a Priority Ticket, will I get the best seat in the house?

Priority Tickets don't guarantee the best seats. However, when booking your Priority Tickets, you'll have the option to choose where to sit from the range of seats available.

I bought Level 4 tickets during the Priority Ticket sale period, which were the 'best available'. Why are there better General Tickets available now?

A wide range of seat types are allocated as Priority Tickets for each show. Getting Priority Tickets doesn’t always guarantee access to the best seats. If you’ve viewed 'best available' on Priority Tickets but would prefer other seats, you’ll need to try buying other tickets through the General Sale.

How can I book disabled access Priority Tickets for The O2 arena?

Disabled access tickets are usually offered online and over the phone. Call or chat to the venue access team ahead of time to get advice on the tickets that will match your access needs. Generally, it is only the wheelchair access platforms that are offered online, but that can change depending on the event layout. We want you to enjoy the event as much as possible, so check in with the team before you purchase tickets.

The O2 Access Team can be reached on:
- Accessible bookings and general information: 020 8463 3359
- Typetext call for accessible bookings or general information: 1800102084633359

Why am I being asked for an accessibility code when booking for O2 Academy venues?

For our customers who are booking accessible tickets at our O2 Academy venues over phone or email, you may be asked to provide a code that proves that you’re an O2 customer who is eligible to book tickets during our Priority Tickets timeframe directly with the venue. To find the code search ‘Accessibility’ in Priority.

Availability of Priority Tickets

Priority Tickets aren't available. Have they all sold out?

There are only ever a limited number available, so it's likely that all the Priority Tickets have been sold, although keep trying in case our allocation is increased. You can try to get General Sale tickets instead.

I always miss out on Priority Tickets, so I never get any benefit from this perk

We really hate to disappoint, but tickets are sold on a first-come, first-served basis. Priority Tickets give O2 customers the chance to buy tickets up to 48 hours before general release. There are only a limited number of Priority Tickets available for each event, so tickets are not always guaranteed. If the Priority Tickets have sold out, you can still try to buy General Sale tickets.

What happens when Priority Tickets go on sale at the same time as General Tickets?

Priority Tickets are still exclusive to O2 customers, we will have an allocation just for our customers. They will be available throughout the offer period or until they are sold out. Priority Tickets are sold on a first-come, first-served basis. You can also try to buy General Sale tickets.
