How To Get Tickets To Jingle Ball 2016 So You Can See Britney Spears In Concert

With only a few months to go until Christmas, it's natural to start thinking seriously about the holiday season. From Eggnog Lattes, to Christmas themed episodes of all of your favorite shows, there is a lot to look forward to in the coming weeks. One event that you just can't miss every year is iHeartRadio's Z100 Jingle Ball. Despite it only being October right now, the line-up for the NYC Jingle Ball was finally announced on Tuesday and, as usual, there are some incredible acts performing. The event takes place on Friday, Dec. 9, 2016, but the most important question is, how can you get tickets to iHeartRadio's Z100 Jingle Ball? It's time to get prepared.

The tour makes several stops across the country, with variations in the line-up depending on which city you're in. The New York City line-up for the Z100 Jingle Ball, which takes place at Madison Square Garden, is nothing short of awesome, featuring the likes of Ariana Grande, Bruno Mars, and Britney Spears. There's likely to be huge demand for tickets to such an iconic, and seasonal, event, so you're going to want to be ready as soon as tickets go on sale. Here's everything you need to know.

Your first stop should be the official iHeartRadio page for the Jingle Ball 2016, since it lists the all-important on sale times for tickets, including pre-sale details. If you're lucky enough to be a Capital One cardholder, you'll have access to a special pre-sale, on October 13, from 10 a.m. local time, and that sale will be on until tickets run out. It's the first chance you'll have to get your hands on tickets.

The tickets officially go on-sale to the general public from Oct. 17 at 10 a.m. local time. The main place to visit, which will direct you to the right place for tickets to the show nearest your city, is the official iHeartRadio page. Different dates on the tour direct you to different ticket buying websites, so it's worth doing your research ahead of time to find out where you'll be purchasing from. That way, you can create a profile and save some time on the day.

The main thing to remember when preparing yourself to buy tickets to any event is — you got this. Check out the tour dates below.
