Safe trustworthy websites to buy concert tickets - advice please!

Found 16th May
Hi all,
I'm looking at buying a couple of concert tickets for a gig but I've never bought any before and I've heard so many stories about fake tickets and scammers.
Do any of you know where I can buy genuine tickets? I've only heard of Ticketmaster.
Also, is it better to get print out tickets or have them posted to me?
Sorry for all the questions,I'm completely out of my depth here and really dont want to get the wool pulled over my eyes...this concert will be a once in a lifetime thing for us and probably won't get the chance again.

Thanks

Go to the Group/Star's official website and look in their "tour" section. They will have links to the official sellers.
Try not to use other sites the "resell" them. You'll end up paying more and maybe even being fleeced.

The likes of Tickermaster will usually post the tickets a couple of weeks before the gig.

Thanks I will look! I looked on the Sheffield Arena website which is where the gig is and they have some on there, limited availability it says. They will be trustworthy won't they?

Yes, you will be fine. compare there, Ticketmaster & eventim. who has the best seats for the money

Twickets - It's face value or less tickets from sellers and the seller gets the money after the gig so chance to appeal if they are dodgy. Although I've never had a bad experience with it.

I always use seetickets

I can't reccomed any to buy from but please please please do NOT buy from Viagogo , absolute con of a company , don't be fooled by the prices , always Google a review of a company/website you have never used before
