Hi, Alexandra—The meaning of each will depend on the context of utterance. In some cases, there will be overlap of meaning. In others, there won't. Since getting  (i.e. purchasing) tickets is often done online nowadays, getting them does not involve going somewhere to take them back, as "picking tickets up" tends to imply. But in other contexts "getting the tickets" can mean picking up physically tickets that have already been purchased. Again, it's very context-dependent. Please remember that sentences in English begin with capital letters and are separated by periods, not commas.
