All other Terms and Conditions continue in full force and effect.

A. If at the time of purchase, you select to collect your tickets from the Venue, physical tickets may not be issued for selected performances. Instead of being issued with physical tickets, your name will be checked at the door against the details provided by you at the time of booking. For you and your booking party to be admitted, you may be required to present the order confirmation number, photo identification and valid proof of any concession entitlement/s.

B. You acknowledge that due to physical distancing requirements, tickets to events may be sold as unallocated at the time of purchase.
