The difficult era of pre-sales for the “Tour of the Eras” is finally over.
After a long wait, tickets are available on most platforms for Taylor Swift’s massive 50-concert Eras Tour.
It was not, however, without complications.
Once tickets officially went on sale through Ticketmaster on Tuesday, November 15, the site was so overwhelmed with demand that it quickly crashed and left fans staggering.
Ticketmaster claimed the presale led to “historically unprecedented demand with millions of people” to purchase tickets to see the “You Belong With Me” singer live.
Let’s say there were “Bad blood.”
We come with good news, however.
Taylor Swift tickets can be secured on resale platforms for all shows on Swift’s massive run across North America.
Vivid Seats, one of the most competitive markets, has tickets that can be higher or lower than face value, depending on demand for the event.
They also have a 100% buyer’s guarantee which states that your transaction will be safe and secure and promises that tickets will be delivered before the event.
So if you want to snag your Swift seats without having to deal with Ticketmaster, give lively seats A try.
You might just land yourself a deal.
Otherwise, as Taylor says, “You’re all alone, kid.”

HAIIM, made up of the Este sisters, Danielle and Alana, are a hard-core rock and roll band, known for their cheeky sense of humor – their 2022 tour was called “One More HAIM” – the group is equally acclaimed by criticism than they popular. Pitchfork praised their 2021 album “Women In Music Pt. III”, calling it “Intimate, multi-dimensional and far-reaching”.
