AXS Ticketing Waiting Room Information provides fair ticketing services with AXS Waiting Room.

How AXS Waiting Room works:

1. The AXS Waiting Room normally opens half an hour before a presale or onsale starts. Once the AXS Waiting Room for your event is open, you can sign in, create an account or enter your billing info while you’re waiting.
2. We'll filter out any brokers or scalpers and randomly choose customers from the AXS Waiting Room queue to enter the purchase flow.
3. The Waiting Room page will automatically refresh with access to tickets, if you're chosen before the event sells out!

Please note that a place in the Waiting Room does not guarantee the availability of tickets. 

Age Restriction

Unless otherwise stated, for all shows, children aged under 14yrs must be accompanied by an adult (aged 16yrs or over).

In addition to this, on standing shows, no-one under the age of 14yrs will be allowed onto the standing floor area. Anyone aged 14-15yrs must be accompanied by an adult (aged 16yrs or over).

CHECK YOUR TICKETS – It might sound obvious, but make sure you’ve got the right venue and the right date and don’t forget your tickets. It’s helpful to know which entrance you need to use and what time the concert starts – if you have any questions, check with the venue.

PLAN YOUR JOURNEY – Many concerts start close to rush hour, so the traffic may be heavy around the venue and car parks. Please leave sufficient time for car parking and entry to the building as this may involve queuing.

HELP – If your child requires any assistance during the event, they should approach a steward or member of security – they will be happy to assist. We do also have Customer Information points on the concourses opposite blocks S10 & N10 and again, our staff will be happy to assist.

MEETING POINT – If your child is coming unaccompanied by an adult, (please see age restrictions), or with friends, drop them off by the Box office entrance on Engineers Way, this is situated on the North side of the building and use this as your meeting point for the end of the show. Please ensure that your child has a mobile number to contact you in the event of show finishing earlier or later than expected

* On childrens shows parents can request a childs wristband which we can then store the guardians contact details on
