1. Access your account

First, you need to make sure you have full access to your account. If you haven’t used your Ticketmaster account in a while, make sure you can easily log in. You need to know your username, associated email, and password. 

If you forgot your password, click “Forgot password” on the login screen to reset it. You should receive an email to reset your password. Once you’ve accessed your account, make note of your login details or use a password manager.

2. Send a request

There is no quick and easy way to close your account through Ticketmaster. In order to remove your data from the website, you have to formally send a request. The easiest way to do this is through their Privacy Form. You can also send a letter to their contact address, but this way takes more time. 

3. Fill out the form

Next, it’s time to complete the contact form. First, share that you have an account with Ticketmaster. Under “request type,” choose “Delete My Information.” This means all of your account details will be deleted from Ticketmaster. 

From there, share your first name, last name, email, and state. When you’ve verified your information, click “Submit.” 

4. Save documentation

Once you’ve submitted your information on the Ticketmaster privacy form, save any follow-up emails and documentation. It can take several weeks for your account information to be removed completely. Continue checking your Ticketmaster account to ensure your request is handled. 

5. Delete your data

Last but not least, make sure you remove your Ticketmaster details for any of your password managers. Now that your account is no longer active, you cannot sign in with these same account details. If you wish to use Ticketmaster again in the future, you will need to sign up again.

How to Delete a Deceased Loved One’s Ticketmaster Account

Next, how do you delete a loved one’s Ticketmaster account? While most accounts are difficult to delete if they don’t belong to you, this isn’t the case for Ticketmaster. You don’t need to know how to get a death certificate or any complicated personal information. However, you have to follow the steps below.

1. Gather key information

While you don’t need to provide proof of your loved one’s information, you need a few basic details. Before you begin, make sure you have:

  • Their first name
  • Their last name
  • Their Ticketmaster email
  • Their home state

If you’re not sure what email they used for their account, you can create a request for each potential email account. This is when it’s helpful to have a list of your loved one’s accounts and user details. 

2. Submit a privacy form

As when deleting your own Ticketmaster profile, you need to submit a request through their privacy form. You’ll need to submit this form as though you are the account owner. Once again, select “Yes” under “Do you have an account?” Then, choose “Delete My Information” as the reason for the request. 

3. Insert your loved one’s information

Finally, type your loved one’s information in the remainder of the form. You’ll need their first name, last name, email, and state. If you don’t know which email is associated with their Ticketmaster account, you can submit the form several times with different emails. 

4. Keep confirmation for your records

Last but not least, save any confirmation or follow-up messages for your records. This is an important part of your loved one’s digital legacy. Though it’s difficult to manage a loved one’s accounts after death, this is one of the most important steps in the post-loss checklist
