Taylor Swift’s Eras Tour tickets went on sale, sparking an online outrage from fans and media.
Fans who were able to get tickets are spend an arm and a leg in order to attend. Many are blaming scalpers and pre-sale codes being used to inflate those prices.
One person tweeted, “It’s so disappointing when presale codes are used to purchase tickets and jack them up on resale sites.”
Some are seeing prices skyrocket into the tens of thousands. It’s quickly becoming the most sought-after event of the year, maybe even more so than the Super Bowl.
One fan even wrote, “I would like Taylor Swift herself to try to get tickets to her own show.”
For those that have been waiting for the chance to see Swift in concert, the price will be a steep one. Some tickets on StubHub are over $11,000.
The US leg of “The Eras Tour” begins March 18 at the State Farm Stadium in Glendale, Arizona and wraps August 5 at SoFi Stadium in Los Angeles.
The other issue? Ticketmaster was a mess.
The site had all kinds of issues as fans tried to get their hands on presale passes, which broke their page, leaving tons of would-be buyers in limbo.
Ticketmaster issued a statement, saying there's unprecedented demand for tickets and those who are still in the queue to buy should remain there to the end.
Despite all the chaos, Ticketmaster says all presale codes sent out will still work, even now. They even pushed back the timing of West Coast ticket sales as well as a schedule presale for Capital One card holders.
