Buying concert tickets for your favorite artist, event tickets, or sports tickets to a football game at Qwest Field is something that you can do quickly and easily online.

1. At most websites that let you purchase sporting event tickets, such as a Mariners game at Safeco Field, or tickets for concerts, you can search by the type of event or the artist. There are often lists of concerts, artists, and sporting events that you can search by. You can also tailor your search for concerts or sporting event tickets by searching for the particular arena or stadium that you are looking for.

2. When you've found the event you want, check to see if the tickets have gone on sale yet. There are times when the events are listed before the tickets are available.

3. Since tickets often go fast, especially sporting event tickets like the Superbowl or NBA playoffs you will want to know before you buy how many tickets you are going to need and the budget you have available to spend on your event tickets. If you"re buying sports tickets or event tickets for a top music act online, you will usually encounter a service charge that you should keep in mind when setting a budget for any concerts you plan to attend. Concert tickets for top names such as Prince or U2 are some of the most expensive, so this is definitely a consideration if you're trying to find cheap concert tickets.

4. Once you have figured out how much you want to spend, and know how many tickets you need, you will have to decide where you would like your seats to be. Are you willing to pay more to sit up front? Or are you willing to sit further back and get the most cheap concert tickets? Whatever you choose, a lot of time seating charts for concerts and sporting events are available, letting you decide exactly where you want to sit.

5. The next step to consider is how you are going to pay for your tickets. If you're buying online, you will need to have a credit card or a debit card with a Visa or MasterCard logo on it. Online places to buy tickets have secure ordering, so you can feel comfortable entering your information when you"re purchasing your concert tickets.

6. The final step is deciding how you are going to get your tickets once they are purchased. You can choose the option of having your event tickets mailed to you, or you can pick them up right before the show or game begins. When you pick up sporting event tickets or any other kind of tickets, you will have to bring the Visa or debit card you used to purchase them, as they will have to verify your identity.

Extra Advice for buying tickets for concerts:

Often in the case of concerts, there are a lot of cheap concert tickets for sale if you buy well ahead of time. If you're buying event tickets online, make sure the website that you purchase you tickets at is a trusted and reputable company. Look for the Verisign or the Better Business Bureau logo when you're buying sporting event tickets and tickets for concerts.

Beware of buying tickets from eBay, since some of these may be fraudulent and you have no way of guaranteeing the authenticity of concert tickets or sports tickets ahead of time.

Last but not least, have a good time!
