Ticketmaster is introducing its new paperless ticketing service in conjunction with the May 16 on-sale for Tom Waits' 13-date "Glitter And Doom" tour, which begins June 17 at the Orpheum Theatre in Phoenix.

Fans who order concert tickets for Waits summer outing through ticketmaster.com and by telephone will only need the credit card they purchased tickets with, along with a valid photo ID at the entrance of the venue. Facility staffers will swipe the credit card and concertgoers will be given a receipt. The new paperless service aims to eliminate lines at will call and conserve trees.

Ticketmaster is testing its new paperless technology on Waits' upcoming summer jaunt. For the majority of Waits' upcoming U.S. concerts, fans who wish to attend must buy tickets via the company's paperless ticketing option, according to a statement.

A statement on the blog for Anti Records (Waits’ label) says that the alignment with Ticketmaster is a strategy to avoid scalpers from re-selling tickets for upcoming shows.

At deadline, Ticketmaster was not offering paperless tickets for any other concerts or tours. But David Marcus, VP of music at Ticketmaster, says the company will be installing paperless ticketing capabilities across major venues in North America and other non-U.S. territories over the next 12-18 months.
