Here is more about Taylor Swift’s Tour Swifties?
Ticketmaster was forced to cancel the sale of the tickets on their official website which has frustrated many Taylor Swift fans. Almost 26 swifties from different countries have filed complaints that the company is guilty of fraud, price-fixing, and antitrust violations. However, Ticketmaster is yet to speak about the issue.
There were many things that went wrong during the November Sale of tour tickets. Many Fans complained that the access codes which were meant to deter bots didn’t work properly and that tickets were being re-sold at higher prices online even though the sale was still going on. The company’s website also crashed repeatedly amid extremely high demand.
A lawsuit was filed in California which claimed: “intentional deception” which allowed third-party scalpers to buy the vast majority of tickets.
It has also claimed that Ticketmaster is a “monopoly that is only interested in taking every dollar it can from a captive public”.
In November many fans had beforehand registered themselves as ‘verified fans’ and hoped to get tickets for Swift’s 52-city US “Eras Tour” next year. But it went completely wrong.
After a few hours of the Sale on the main website which was going on, tickets were being sold on resale websites for prices of up to $22,000 (£17,950). The fans of Taylor Swift now want $2,500 for each alleged violation.
Among all these, Taylor Swift has said that it’s “excruciating” to watch the fans struggle to get tickets for her tour.
