If a concert on sale to live audiences is cancelled due to health and safety recommendations, exchanges and refunds will be offered. See our FAQs: Live and Online Events.
Live concert exchanges
The HPO will perform ticket exchanges up to 48 hours prior to the concert you hold tickets for. Exchanges are free to subscribers and cost $6 per ticket for single-ticket buyers.
Exchanges are subject to availability. The HPO cannot guarantee same seats for exchanges but will provide the closest seats available.
Exchanges can only be made for concerts in the same season. If credit is not used by the end of the season, the ticket purchaser will be issued a charitable donation tax receipt for the value of the ticket(s).
Tickets for past performances cannot be exchanged or returned for a tax receipt.
The HPO will exchange one ticket for each ticket you wish to exchange. If a new ticket costs more than the ticket you previously held, you will be charged the difference.
Delivery method for new tickets
Once you have completed the exchange, please destroy your original tickets as they will no longer be valid.
- Email: Print your ticket at home, or present ticket electronically on concert night.
Sales of concert tickets, concert packages, gift certificates and service charges are final. There are no refunds unless a concert is cancelled by the HPO following health and safety recommendations.
