    I just went through the pinned post and it looks like you can't transfer the ticket to someone with a different last name? I just had back surgery yesterday and don't think I'm gonna be able to fish the 8th now. I want to transfer the ticket to a buddy so he can take his wife out, but I'd hate to have them drive all the way out there and get turned around b/c I messed up the transfer.... From one of the posts it looks like I can just have them use my name day of and it "should work"?

    Any clarification or tips on how to do this?

    Thanks for the help!

    Call Ticketmaster and have their name added to the will call list.

    Just have them give your name. They dont check ID's or DNA at the gate.

    I tried it on-line and unable to do so and I chatted on-line with a TM rep and they could not do the add a name to the alternate wait list any more, it's only available for some events not all.

    It's okay to have your buyer or transferee to just give Jose or Laurie your first and last name to them at check-in.

    Update: The online chat function worked for me I think....The lady said that alternate will call was available for this type of ticket and took down the new name. Gonna send him with the rcpt as well just in case.

    Ok good I guess it’s a hit and a miss with TM and depends on the customer service person knowledge or lack of.

    Jose and Lauri never cared as long as you have the name of the ticket holder. I think it’s more about the purchaser not wanting to transfer funds without getting their name on it. Unless of course they know the other guy like most regulars do. Cheers!

    They don't check IDs at Barrett. Just have the transferee give your name. Same as others have said. You are not trying to sneak into a bar underage. Even if they know the ticket holder, they won't object if the transferee explains the situation. Jose and Lauri are both very nice and reasonable people (unlike some of our so called "public servants").
