Fans react to rush for Taylor Swift tour tickets

Many fans are furious at the cost

Tickets for Taylor Swift‘s ‘Reputation’ UK tour went on sale this morning, with many fans left out in the scramble for tickets.

The singer, who released sixth album ‘Reputation’ earlier this month, will kick off the tour at Manchester’s Etihad Stadium on 8th June before heading to Dublin and London. The dates are:

8 June 2018: Manchester, Etihad Stadium
15 June 2018: Dublin, Croke Park
22 June 2018: London, Wembley Stadium

Amongst those who managed to grab tickets for the huge shows, there were a large number of fans frustrated by the cost. “Was going to get Taylor Swift tickets, but no chance when there £130 each,” wrote one fan on Twitter, “Like how much money does she think we have, it’s ridiculous.”

“£104.50 each for seated tickets right at the back of Wembley stadium? I paid about £50 for tickets at the back of the o2 arena for her Red Tour, clearly the old Taylor is dead,” wrote another, referencing lyrics her recent single ‘Look What You Made Me Do’.

A number of other fans were also frustrated with how quickly the shows sold out. “TAYLOR TICKETS SOLD OUT IN 5 SECONDS WTF” wrote one, while another wrote: “Taylor Swift is sold out. I didn’t get tickets. I’m gonna wear black today. Please respect.”

However, despite the clamour for tickets, the size of the shows meant that a huge number of fans were not left disappointed.

Earlier today (December 1), Swift’s new album ‘Reputation’ was added to streaming services.

The singer’s sixth album finally arrived on services including Spotify and Apple Music at just after midnight, with a video posted on the Taylor Nation twitter account confirming that it was ‘available tonight on all streaming services’.

 The rest of Taylor’s back catalogue is available on streaming services too, but only since she returned it in June, having previously withdrawn it after voicing her opposition to advertisement based streaming.
