What Type of Ticket Buyer Are You?

One of the best parts that we love to see when a gig is announced for Utilita Arena Birmingham is the genuine enthusiasm and excitement that you all share on Social Media. 

Whether you’re tagging your besties in the announcement post, sharing it on your stories or retweeting it to your followers, getting you guys pumped for an artist is one of the reasons we do what we do. 

But when it’s down to crunch time, and the tickets are available to purchase, there are certain archetypes of people that your friend group fall in to. We all know them. We all love them...for the most part.  

We’ve compiled a list of ticket-buying-behaviours that we’re sure you and your squad will fall into.

Which Ticket Buyer Are You?

The Early-Riser

“Tickets go on sale at 10:00am? Wicked! I'll be on the site at 6:00am to get in the queue.”

You leave nothing to chance. You’re the type to stand up five minutes before you arrive at your train station. You want to make sure that you don’t get roasted in group chat for missing the opportunity, and you’re loved for it. 

The Multitasker 

“I’ve got my phone, my laptop, my sisters iPad, mom’s laptop and dad’s Windows 96 desktop computer – I'm ready.”

You are definitely obsessed with Microsoft Excel. You have 15 different spots in the queue because missing this concert is not. an. option. Tickets to you are worth the energy bills used to make sure you get them on the first wave. 

The Fluker 

“Bad news, I woke up late and missed the pre-sale. Good news, there were still some tickets left when I logged on and bagged four of them.” 

When you work from home, you get up at 8:59am. You’re known in your group for your laid-back attitude and good-vibes-only mentality. That’s why your group feel the pain of despair pang through their body when you say “I’ll grab the tickets, don’t worry”. They will, but it doesn’t matter because it always works out in the end! 

The Mother 

“Tickets are booked! Let’s meet at The Bull at 5:00pm and I’ve also booked a table at Ed’s Easy Diner for 6:00pm” 

You’re having fun if everyone else is having fun. You’re not just buying the tickets for the gig; you’re buying the tickets for the night. This night is going to be one to remember, from the moment you step out the door to the moment you come back home. 

The Tagalong 

“Wait, who are we seeing again?” 

The good time gal with nothing but immaculate vibes.  The group would’ve ditched your unorganised butt a long time ago if you weren’t so brilliant. You have no idea where you’re going, what time to be there, but one thing is for sure – you'll turn up eventually and bring the fun with you!
