    What's the difference?


    Thanks.
    There's no discernible difference really. The second might mean that you don't need to get the tickets yourself but the main point is the same. You want tickets for the show, you don't have any yet and if you are going to go to the show, you still need [to get] them.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    I agree with emsr, but I want to add that there is no difference between using "for" and 'to" in this case.
