- 15 for a single show.

Article 2 – Availability
Show ticket reservations are made in real time.
In this context, our server informs you in real time on the availability of tickets at the time when you place your order.
If there is no availability left in one of the types of seats requested, our server automatically offers you the best remaining seats.
Should the number of seats required exceed the number of seats left in the chosen category, taking primary account of the number of seats requested, you may be assigned seats in the desired category and in other categories, and the seats assigned to you may not be side by side.

9.2 A show ticket cannot be refunded even in case of loss or theft, nor can it be returned or exchanged, unless the show is cancelled.

In the same way, a ticket cannot be resold for a price that exceeds that shown on the front of the ticket itself. No duplicate ticket may be issued even in case of loss or theft.
At the entrance check on the way into the event location, valid photo ID may be requested of the ticket holder and must match the name on the ticket where there is one.
