Join a band's fan club. Bands want their fans to be able to get tickets to their shows instead of the seats being bought out by ticket brokers. Fan club members will be sent a pre-sale code that they can use to get the tickets.
Buy an online album. Music sites, such as iTunes, are presenting fans with the option to buy certain band's records and then be offered the chance to get tickets to their shows before they go on sale to the public.
Look online for pre-sale concert codes. Find the codes on blogs and pre-sale code forums that need to be input into Ticketmaster in order to be eligible for pre-sale tickets.
Log on to Ticketmaster after you have received the pre-sale password. Enter the pre-sale code into the required box. You will then be able to see which seats are available.
