The announcement also stated that “tickets purchased online will be automatically refunded”, whereas holders of tickets purchased in person will have to bring their ticket to the Ticketnet box office at Araneta Coliseum between October 3 and 31 to obtain a refund. Additional enquiries on ticket refunds can be made by contacting Live Nation at (02)8911-5555 or their official email address.
