Edinburgh, Lothians, United Kingdom, 2008/01/14 - Having garnered such a high customer satisfaction rating, Mobile Ticketing has now been integrated into all current and future shows at the Royal Oak Music Theatre, Michigan.
This innovative and exciting Tickets@Phone service was launched at the Royal Oak Music Theatre in October and was provided by Tickets.com, a leading provider of integrated ticketing solutions, and Mobiqa, the world leaders in mobile ticketing solutions. The Royal Oak Music Theatre was the first venue outside the sports world in the US to offer ticket delivery to mobile phones. Having proved highly popular with patrons of the theatre, this service has been extended to all current and future shows.
The 80 year old art deco theatre is offering fans that purchase tickets online to any of the venue’s shows, the ability to select Tickets@Phone ticket delivery option to receive tickets straight to their mobile phone. Tickets are delivered using text messaging and contain a unique barcode with accompanying event information. The customer’s phone is scanned at the entrance of the theatre allowing access to the event.
In addition to the convenience of ticket delivery to the patron’s phone within minutes of placing an order, each of these mobile tickets comes with VIP privileges. These privileges are given to the Tickets[.]Phone patrons as they arrive at the theatre for the event. There is a separate entrance line for Tickets@Phone users as well as priority entry for General Admission shows.
Justin Miller, General Manager of the Royal Oak Music Theatre comments, “The majority of our patrons are among the younger demographic who send and receive text messages several times a day. We want to give them the opportunity to use the latest technology. Allowing Royal Oak patrons the ability to receive tickets on their cell phone does that.”
Royal Oak Music Theatre has played host to a long list of eclectic performers including Billy Crystal, Robin Williams, Duran Duran and Iggy Pop. Upcoming shows which people can buy Mobile Tickets for include; G. Love & Special Sauce, Louis C.K. The Saw Doctors and Robin Trower.
