Frequently Asked Questions


Q)  I purchased a ticket to a gig that was at Luna Park or the Enmore and its now been moved to the Hordern Pavilion, do I pick up my ticket from the Hordern?
A) If you have purchased through Ticketek then you are able to pick up your ticket from the Hordern box office on the night. If you already have your Ticketek ticket it will be valid for entry at the Hordern.
If you purchased through Moshtix or Luna Park please visit our website and the event page for further instructions.

Q) I bought some tickets to a concert for my daughter/friend can they pick up the tickets? Or I can’t make it to pick up the tickets can someone else pick them up for me?
A) If you have bought tickets for someone else and/or cannot attend the show then whoever will be attending will need to bring a copy (a photocopy or scan) of the credit card that was used to purchase the tickets and signed authority note saying they authorize (your name) to collect tickets on their behalf. They can pick them up from the box office here at the Hordern Pavilion from 1 hour prior to the show on the concert day OR they can pick them up from any Ticketek kiosk in the city upon presentation of the authorization letter and / or credit card.

Q) What does GA mean? What does RS mean?
A) GA is General Admission. This is the general configuration of the Hordern and it means that you have the option to sit or stand. However, if you would like to sit down throughout the show we recommend you get there for doors open as there is limited seating (in comparison to standing) at the Hordern.
RS is Reserved Seating. This means your show (or your ticket) is in a seated area and your ticket is assigned to a specific seat in the venue. You will be able to find where you are seated by looking at the row number, seat number and section. You can check the seating plan on the event page.

Q) I'm over 18 but my friend under 18 - if we buy an Over18s ticket and a under 18s ticket will we still be able to sit/stand together?
Quick answer - YES! We have two tickets types based on being 18 and over OR 17 and under. The reason for this is so we can see what the breakup of ages of those attending the show. Knowing how many Over 18s / Under 18s there are allows us make decisions ahead of time.

A) Please contact us prior to the concert and provide the following details; Name & credit card details (with which you purchased the tickets).  If you realise you have lost your tickets on the day of the show then please head to the box office and speak with a Ticketek Representative.
