I purchased 4 Bon Jovi/Daughtry tickets off eBay. I received PDF's of the four tickets because they were TicketFast tickets. The seller had a good feedback rating but not a ton of sales. Is there a way I can verify these are legit before driving a couple hours to KC?

Dunno... buyer beware with stuff like this one. The feedback ratings are good, but... I just don't trust people in general.

I don't know about those, but when the Chiefs went to the transfer via ticketfast thing a couple of years ago it invalidated the original "paper" tickets when they were fed through ticketfast to protect the buyer.
Chances are you're OK, I don't know of a way to fake the tickefast thing.

Thanks for the feedback. Also, I've never been to the Sprint Center and don't even know where it's at yet. Can anyone tell me how long I should plan on it taking me to get from Kearney, MO to the Sprint Center prior to the concert? It takes me 1 hr 45 min to get to Kearney.

if it's a pdf there's no way to know they haven't sent the same pdf's to 10 other people. you are essentially trusting the buyer. only the first person to show up with that ticket will get in, after that the barcode system will show them as already used.

You might be able to call the box office and give them the numbers to make sure they're legit.

Unfortunately, even with legit tickets, there's no guarantee that the guy didn't sell them to 30 other people, so there's always a chance you'd get there to find that someone else using the same tickets already got in.
