    Hi all

    I am going to Vegas in August and want to see both the O show in bellagio and penn and teller at the Rio.

    Id like to book the tickets before i go so i went onto both websites and its taken me to the US ticket master site. Fair enough i get why it would but im a little concerned as to me receiving the tickets ok as i am in the UK.

    Has anyone else in the UK booked tickets through the US ticketmaster site for any shows in Vegas? if so did the tickets arrive ok?

    Many thanks for any help

    Chris

    You should choose "will call" as your delivery option. You will go to the hotel's physical box office on the day of the performance, present your identification (and sometimes the credit card used to purchase the tickets) and they will provide you with your tickets. There is no particular reason that I can think of to have the tickets delivered to your home. Just be sure to retain your email confirmation in case the box office has any trouble finding your booking.

    Your driver's license would be fine. That is what 99.99% of folks will show at the box office. They just need something with your picture and name on it. Be sure to bring the credit card that you used to purchase the tickets as well. They sometimes require that when you show up to collect your tickets. (Your email confirmation will explain what to bring.)

    No, you order tickets online and in most cases you pick up the tickets at the box office. Can't remember if they're vouchers (in which case you usually wouldn't be assigned seats in advance) or actual tickets, but if you go to that link all the details should be spelled out.

    Yes a UK DL will be fine as long as it is photo.

    While Vegas cards everyone they are also pretty lax about what is acceptable. My UK DL wasn't accepted at a few places in Denver or LA and I had to take my passport out with me but Vegas sees them all the time. Never had a problem doing anything with mine.
