Taylor Swift Ticket Sales Are A Mess...Ticketmaster Asks For Patience
Taylor Swift’s “Midnights” album broke the Internet, and now the pre-sale for her 2023 “Eras Tour” has broken Ticketmaster. At least temporarily. Apparently, millions of fans logged onto the site at the same time for the presale - and site couldn't handle the traffic.
As Ticketmaster has since explained, the queue was set for the expected amount of pre-sellers...about at least double that logged on. The company has gotten their tech folks on the case - and now, the pre-sale windows have been moved to today - if you've got a code, check the website for your window.
The American leg of “The Eras Tour” begins March 18th at the State Farm Stadium in Glendale, Arizona and wraps August 5th at SoFi Stadium in Los Angeles. If you aren't lucky enough to score a ticket through Ticketmaster, don't bother hitting up StubHub - tickets offered there are going for as much as $35-thousand apiece.
Update: Suspects Arrested In Frankie Grande Mugging
Dancer/actor Frankie Grande - Ariana Grande's older brother - was robbed in NYC last week. Police say two teens - ages 13 and 17 - robbed the 39-year-old while he walked Eighth Avenue on November 9. Grande was struck from behind before the muggers stole Grande's Louis Vuitton bag with his iPhone, AirPods, sunglasses and wallet. Grande was not injured.
The suspects were caught when they tried to use Grande's credit card at a nearby smoke shop, police said. They were charged with robbery, grand larceny, unlawful use of a credit card, criminal possession of a weapon, criminal possession of stolen property, menacing and harassment.
Police say the teens had an imitation pistol and razor blade when they were arrested.
