Accessing Your AXS Tickets: AXS Mobile ID is a digital ticket you use with your phone. This revolving QR code resets every 60 seconds to ensure the most secure ticketing experience for fans.

Do I need the AXS app to access my tickets? 
Yes. Their patented AXS Mobile ID is the most secure form of ticketing on the market and ensures our fans have a trusted experience. Because of its unique design, the AXS Mobile ID cannot be sent through a standard email, so they use the AXS App to host this technology.

The AXS app can be downloaded from the Apple App Store and Google Play Store. 

How can I see my AXS Mobile ID?
After you log into the AXS app, you can pull up your AXS Mobile ID in a few different ways. Tapping the ticket icon in the bottom menu will automatically pull up your AXS Mobile ID or show you a list of your upcoming events which you can select individually. You can also tap the middle icon in the bottom menu to view your AXS Mobile ID.
