Syntax error on variable subtraction


tickets_remaining = 100

# Output tickets remaining

print("There are {} tickets remaining.".format(tickets_remaining))

name = input("What is your name? ")

ticketsWanted = int(input("Hi {}, how many tickets would you like ?  ".format(name)))

price = ticketsWanted * TICKET_PRICE

print("That will be a total of ${}.".format(price))

confirmBuy = input("Would you like to confirm purchase of {} tickets? Y/N ?  ".format(ticketsWanted))

if confirmBuy.lower() == "y":
    print("SOLD, thank you for your purchase {}!".format(name)
    tickets_remaining -= ticketsWanted
    print("Thank you anyways, {}".format(name))

print("There are now {} tickets remaining.".format(tickets_remaining))     

I'm getting a syntax error on line 22 ( tickets_remaining -= ticketsWanted) Not sure why or what to do, I've tried seeing if it was something to do with indention to no avail. Thank you for any help!

You are missing ')'

if confirmBuy.lower() == "y":
    print("SOLD, thank you for your purchase {}!".format(name)) #<-- Here --
    tickets_remaining -= ticketsWanted
