Taylor Swift fans who were able to obtain presale tickets could now cash in for tens of thousands of dollars, as the resale market has exploded in the aftermath of Ticketmaster canceling the public sale.
We looked at seat maps on StubHub for some of the main locations Taylor will visit on her Eras tour next year, and the prices are crazy. Taylor is performing numerous performances in each city, thus the prices listed below are PER TICKET for Saturday events (often the most popular) in each city.
Fans hoping to get tickets to Taylor’s SoFi Stadium show in Los Angeles will have to pay at least $400, and that’s for a seat behind the stage… while the most expensive seat is currently listed at $4,549.
You can score some nosebleeds for $765 at MetLife Stadium in New Jersey, or shell out $11,475 for the floor.
These rates, however, pale in comparison to the $22,500 you’ll spend to see Taylor from the front row at Gillette Stadium in suburban Boston, where “affordable” seats are $675. There’s also Soldier Field in Chicago, where nosebleed seats cost $800 and floor seats cost nearly $5,000.
Ticketmaster in Shambles After Taylor Swift Concert Purchase Chaos
As we reported, Swifties spiraled this week after Ticketmaster seemingly botched the presale — causing millions of fans to wait online for several hours to secure seats to Taylor’s first tour in years. Turns out they’re the lucky ones.
Far more fans got zippo, and will now have to pay through the nose. Honestly, they’ll be the ones singing “Look what you made me do” … to Ticketmaster!!!
Things got so bad, Ticketmaster announced Thursday the general public on-sale, scheduled for Friday, was canceled “due to extraordinarily high demands on ticketing systems and insufficient remaining ticket inventory to meet that demand.”
The attorney general in Tennessee announced Wednesday that he’ll be investigating the ticketing giant for possible antitrust law violations.
