No, you cannot receive a refund or credit for unused tickets except as required by Australian Consumer Law.

We encourage subscribers to take advantage of our exchange policy, or pass the tickets onto a friend or family member. You can also convert tickets into tax deductible donations – contact ASO to learn more.

If you find yourself with an extra ticket that you were not able to exchange or give away, please consider providing it to the box office as we can provide these tickets to students, free of charge.

All tickets are recorded against the name of the subscribers, thus can be looked up. If you have lost your tickets on the day, please arrive at the box office with your subscriber card, a little earlier than normal (30-45 mins before the concert) so a replacement can be printed.

You do not need to contact us in advance if you can present your subscriber card at the box office.
