Ticketmaster makes ‘huge step forward’ for disabled music fans

For years, deaf and disabled music fans have faced huge barriers when it comes to booking concert tickets.

Ticketmaster’s scheme allows fans to submit details of their disability online. Once validated, the information is bound to their profile, meaning they can book tickets for all future gigs without extra effort.

In participating venues, accessible seats will be clearly labelled on the seat map like any other ticket – whether that’s in the range of a hearing loop, or in a wheelchair-friendly zone, with a free companion ticket.
