I keep trying to enter my cell phone number for the access code, but I am consistently receiving this message:

"Failed to text access code User has exceeded the request limit. Try again in a minute or two."

I'm willing to bet that far more users are trying to sign up for this than they anticipated...


It may not be this but I got that message the first time then I put the hyphens in like 619-xxx-xxxx then it worked

Mine finally went through! Looks like a lot of people were trying to access it at once - not surprising, haha.

What is the link for fan registration? Was there an email blast? I didn't get anything.

Never mind, I found it on their website. It was a bit of a dig through.

Tip for anyone who does not have a cell phone (like me): you can click on the tiny link below the access code box and have the code telephoned to you by autobot.

No, I just went to their webpage and clicked the banner for fan registration is now open.

Thank you, Sefton, for trying to help a clueless person!

Finally got it to work and it was super easy. The questions were pretty much the same thing they ask in some of their after show surveys and the personal info was no different than when purchasing.

Whole process was super easy.  Liked the added security of the phone verification.  They ask no out of the ordinary questions.

I agree. A little glitchy at first but dear God in heaven, we have so much time to do this!

I had no problems on the verification process.  I love the extra measure of providing a phone number.

so did you have to choose the ticket type you are interested in buying on sale day?

Yes, but it says you are not guaranteed that.

I did, but I am not sure if it is just a survey for them to get an idea or if we can choose other ticket options when the actual ticket sale is happening?

You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login I get that but I am trying to get at it is if that is locking you into a ticket type or if it was more of just a survey type question

Don't see how they could lock you into it, worse case, just select 12.  I selected 4 3-day's even though I'm only going to need 2.

I just completed the process, had no issues but I read this thread first :)
