11/05/2020 – Ongoing – We are aware of some other websites as well as Very above which are restricting access from our customers TicketMaster. We are contacting them to find the reason and get the issue resolved. Any customers experiencing issues should speak to the TicketMaster support team directly in the first instance, and any information that they provide you would be helpful to us to resolve the issue as well. The problem is not on our side, but with the sites affected. We believe it may be a 3rd-party security provider that they may all use which has incorrectly blocked our IP address range. (Net-A-Porter is now resolved and they have restored access to our customers, it was due to a misconfiguration on their part).
Upcoming Maintenance
No maintenance is currently scheduled in the near future.
