Beware of counterfeit tickets. How do I tell if my ticket is valid?

Due to the nature of the business, Ford Center hosts events that may sell out, so patrons sometimes go to the secondary market to purchase their tickets. Ford Center is not able to guarantee that these tickets are legitimate because they were not purchased from an official source. By purchasing these tickets, you might be the victim of scalping. They have encountered situations where a patron purchases tickets through one of these websites, and finds out that the tickets were counterfeit at the event, so they are not able to attend the show. Sometimes, while you may receive real event tickets, you end up paying more than face-value for these tickets.

Ticketmaster is the official ticket provider of Ford Center.

In order to avoid missing an event, you should NOT purchase tickets from secondary websites unless it is an approved vendor of Ford Center.
