TAMPA, Fla. (WFLA) – Tickets for Taylor Swift’s three shows on her “Eras” tour at Raymond James Stadium have hit the resale market after fans struggled to get presale tickets on Tuesday and Ticketmaster canceled the sale for the general public set for Friday.
Delays with the Ticketmaster system had many fans sitting in a virtual queue for hours, with many waiting at their computers just to receive an error message after entering their pre-sale code.
Ticketmaster cancelled the general sale for the tour on Thursday in a tweet, saying: “Due to extraordinarily high demands on ticketing systems and insufficient remaining ticket inventory to meet that demand, tomorrow’s public on-sale for Taylor Swift | The Eras Tour has been canceled.”
Ticketmaster issued a statement on Twitter on Tuesday, saying there was a “historically unprecedented demand” with millions showing up to buy tickets. The website even went on to move presale dates and times for Swift’s Los Angeles, Las Vegas, Santa Clara and Seattle shows, as well as Capital One cardholders’ presale being rescheduled.
Tickets to the pop star’s tour eventually hit the resale market on Wednesday with some incredible price tags, according to CNN.
CNN reported tickets for the show at MetLife Stadium in New Jersey on May 26 are listed on StubHub for as much as $21,600 each for a spot on the floor in front of the stage.
“As for just getting into the stadium — that’ll cost at least $350 on StubHub,” CNN reported.
News Channel 8 searched StubHub for resale prices for Swift’s three shows at Raymond James Stadium in April ahead of tickets ahead of Ticketmaster canceling the general sale.
Tickets to the performances at Raymond James Stadium fall in line with CNN’s reporting of MetLife Stadium prices, with tickets starting at $315 both Thursday (April 13) and Friday (April 14) and $405 on Saturday (April 15).
The most expensive resale ticket at Raymond James Stadium on StubHub is going for $35,000 for seats in section 144 for Thursday’s show.
The second highest priced ticket goes for $18,000 for Saturday’s show of the “Eras” tour, and includes VIP seating with a private entrance, cash bar, light fare grill and restaurants. The ticket also includes VIP balcony access, club access, priority entry and access to a VIP area next to or in front of the stage.
