Taylor Swift vents anger at Ticketmaster over Eras Tour

Pre-sales for Taylor Swift’s The Eras Tour went on sale Tuesday, November 15, sending Swifties into a frenzy as they hope to be among the lucky fans who get tickets.

Fans had to register for the presale and found out Monday if they were selected to participate. Advance sales began at 10 a.m. Tuesday, but winning the lottery to gain access to tickets was just the first hurdle fans had to jump.

Ticketmaster told people who registered for tickets that there was “historic demand” for the 52-date tour. When the online queue opened at 9:30am, thousands of fans were already in the waiting rooms for each tour date.

Being invited to participate in the pre-sale did not necessarily guarantee that fans would be able to purchase tickets, as many people remained in the waiting rooms, with thousands of ticket buyers ahead of them.

Referring to the viral lyrics from Swift’s song “Anti-Hero” from her new album “Midnights”, many people are calling Ticketmaster “the problem”.

“Hi, it’s me, I have a problem – directed only by Ticketmaster and only by Ticketmaster”, said one fan.

Ticketmaster provided tips for ticket buyersreminding them to arrive early and stay in line.

Some users general screenshots on social media about the Ticketmaster outage, as the site said, “experiencing technical difficulties.”

Some users said that more than 45 minutes have passed since the presale started remained in line.

But Swifties were happy. Fans who bought tickets for the long-awaited tour shared their joy on social media.

Tour of Swift begins on March 17 in Glendale, Arizona. She will perform in 20 cities, in all of which there will be several tours.
