Taylor Swift tickets LIVE: Eras Tour pre-sale begins for UK dates as fans scramble for chance to be a part of pop history… and Ticketmaster crashes


Fans who missed it have now joined their second row of the day.

Ticketmaster is showing people the daunting number of over 20,000, while AXS is not counting down.

DO NOT refresh your browser once you are in the queue and only use one device as logging in twice may throw you out.

This queue is likely to be long, so prepare to wait for the tickets you want, but don’t close the tab once you’re inside.

Be careful!

Experts have warned fans not to accept ticket offers outside of the official email routes from sellers Ticketmaster and AXS.

Fans are urged to stay alert to scammers, who are a “highly attractive target for criminals” due to the “phenomenal demand” for her Eras Tour tickets.

Criminals rely on the popularity of tickets and set up their own fake versions and fake ticket sales sites to mislead consumers and make money.

Fans are outraged at the price of tickets, with many people now reselling them on websites like Viagogo for up to £3,500 for front standing.

Taylor Swift tickets LIVE Eras Tour pre sale begins for UK

We’re less than 15 minutes from the London and Edinburgh presale opening at 1pm!

Hopeful fans now gear up for the second round and head to the new waiting room.

London is sold out!

Tickets for the first show in London are now sold out.

For fans who didn’t get tickets, there’s another sale at 1pm for pre-sale access to dates in London and Edinburgh.

Your pre-sale code unlocks the actual purchase of tickets, so make sure you have it on hand to save time.

For anyone interested in prices, pre-sale seated tickets run from £58.65 – £194.75 for London with VIP packages ranging from £196 to £662.40. Standing costs £172.25.

Some people are already selling second hand tickets and fans have made their feelings about the situation very clear.

Success for some!

It’s not all doom and gloom, as some Swifties have already bagged tickets to UK shows.

Ticketmaster has issued instructions on the best way for fans to obtain pre-sale tickets, asking them to use only one device at a time.

Fans on Twitter are reporting that they are being ‘thrown’ from Ticketmaster’s queue – suggesting the system may already be overwhelmed with people eager to get their tickets.

Presale tickets for the singer’s UK and European tour went on sale today at 11am to select fans who have pre-ordered her Midnights album.

When fans tried to get tickets for the US leg of the Eras tour last year, many were heartbroken after the so-called Ticketmaster queue left them without tickets.

Tickets are only available from Ticketmaster and AXS and can only be purchased with an access code.

Ticketmaster has not specified a specific time when the access code emails will be sent, only that it will be in a staggered system by July 14 to ensure the site doesn’t get overwhelmed.

Fans had to register before June 22 to try and access the general sale.
