Some fans are starting to get a little ticked off with Taylor Swift after seeing tickets for her upcoming Eras tour go on sale for tens of thousands of dollars.
After Ticketmaster royally screwed up the pre-sale for the US leg of Taylor’s tour and cancelled the main sale entirely, it wasn’t long before tickets were being touted on resale sites for extortionate prices.
In one instance, fans saw tickets advertised on resale platforms for as much as $95,000.
Even so, the US Justice Department is now investigating Ticketmaster’s parent company Live Nation Entertainment, The New York Times reports.
Taylor herself issued a statement to apologise to fans and call out Ticketmaster for the ‘excruciating’ mishandling of her tickets.
Heartbroken Taylor fans took to Twitter to hit out at the outrageous resale prices, with one saying: “$95k for Taylor swift tickets??? She better put me in her dying will for that.”
“I love Taylor swift but $95k is wild”, complained a second.
While a third wrote: “Idk who needs to reads this but please don’t spend 95k on Taylor swift tickets she doesn’t care about you.”
And that seems to be the sentiment of a lot of disheartened fans this week, unfortunately.
