BTS - Frequently Asked Questions

The O2 -


What does GA4 etc stand for?

GA stands for General Allocation.  These are standing tickets on the arena floor, please ignore any row or seat numbers, these are only used when the floor is seated. 

I didn't manage to get tickets.  How come?

Tickets for the BTS shows are now sold out. We understand your disappointment and are sorry for those of you who have missed out, but the demand for these UK dates has been incredibly high. We remind you to only use verified ticketing agents for all purchases.

It may be worth checking back on from time to time as we do occasionally get tickets back and any returns will be released for sale there.

Someone bought the tickets for me, can i still attend?

Yes, this is not a names on ticket event, so you can use tickets bought for you by someone else without having to bring their ID.


Why are tickets up for sale on re-sale sites at such high prices?

It’s unfortunate that tickets are already on re-sale sites for such inflated prices.

Currently under UK law it is legal for customers to sell personal tickets on re-sale sites.  When used correctly re-sale sites can help fans who cannot make a show to sell their tickets on to other fans.  We are unable to intervene in these sales as they are legal, however some people abuse the system and buy tickets to sell on for a large profit.

We have a team at The O2 who go through re-sale sites and anything bought by known touts or suspected illegal activity are cancelled and then released for sale to the public, so it is worth checking regularly for any seats that come back.


I bought tickets from a re-sale site.   Are they genuine?

We wont be able to tell if tickets are valid tickets until they are scanned on the night.Re-sale sites work like ebay so they don't own the tickets either, they just provide a platform for a customer to sell their tickets.

Because we won't have any connection or communication with that customer we do not know if that ticket is legitimate, has been sold multiple times or has been cancelled until we scan the barcode on the night as it remains their property until that point. However, most re-sale tickets are fine (and just sold at inflated prices).

Will there be Merchandise at the show?

Yes there will be merch for sale.  We don't yet know what merch will be on offer and will only usually find this out much nearer the time.  On the day Merch goes on sale as soon as it is offloaded from the trucks.  This is definitely by 5pm but often much earlier.

We have a Merchandise shop by the main entrance that anyone can use and then smaller stands inside the arena only for ticketholders, but they will sell the same stock.

The O2 App

You will be able to pre order merch before the event on The O2 App.  (this is the venue app rather that O2 Priority, so anyone can pre-order as long as you have a ticket for the show.   This service is usually available around a week before the show.   For more info or to download the app, please see

Most blocks in Level 1 start at row c. Blocks in level 4 start at row a.

What time do you open for queuing/Can we camp out?
