Questions regarding personalized tickets

The ticket holder has to prove his/her identity by showing an ID card, passport, driver’s license, EC or credit card. Please note: The same applies for children.
What happens if I cannot prove my identity at the entrance?
The promoter has the right to deny access to the show if you cannot prove your identity at the entrance by showing an ID card, passport, driver’s license, EC or credit card.
How can I change the name on the personalized ticket?
Only the original buyer of the ticket can arrange a re-personalization. Therefore, the buyer has to log in on tickets.de and enter the first and last name as well as the email address of the new ticketholder. Furthermore, the buyer has to upload an official identification document that can be copied (not a personal ID card), reflecting the identity of the original ticket holder (such as health insurance card, passport or driver’s license).
Please note that the ticket holder is the person whose name is currently displayed on the ticket. More details to be found in section 11 of our General Terms & Conditions.
I have no ID card which I can upload, what next?
Should you not be able to upload the required documents, we cannot accept your re-personalization request. However, you can still sell your tickets in the ticket exchange.
How much will a re-personalization cost?
A re-personalization will cost 5,- Euro per ticket and can only be paid by credit card. The payment is required only after approval of the re-personalization request.
How long does the re-personalization take?
We kindly ask for your patience due to the fact that re-personalizations are processed manually and being cross-checked for secondary market sales. All requests will be answered before admission takes place.
You will receive a confirmation email which re-directs to the payment option for the re-personalization fee.
After entering the credit card details, the old ticket will be invalidated and the new ticket will be sent to the email address you stated in the request.
How long can tickets be re-personalized?
Re-personalizations can be requested online until 6 hours before doors open to the event. The payment of the re-personalization fee is only possible by credit card and required only after approval of the re-personalization request.
I cannot request a re-personalization because I cannot find the according button – why?
There might be several reasons:
a) You are not the original purchaser of the ticket (a re-personalization can only be requested by the original ticket buyer)
b) You have bought the ticket as an express user and have not yet assigned it to your new user account
c) We have blocked your account for any re-personalizations.
My request has been rejected – why?
The reason for the rejection has been sent to you via email. Please also take a look at your junk mail folder. Should you have any further questions regarding the rejection of your request, please send an email to: firstname.lastname@example.org
I have bought tickets as an express user and would like to request a re-personalization.

Herewith the tickets will be assigned to your new user account where you will find the according button for the re-personalization.
I have bought my ticket at a non-authorized reseller and a wrong name is displayed on the ticket.

I paid more money for the tickets as shown on the print – why?
