The long-awaited return of pop superstar Taylor Swift to Australian shores has Swifties in a frenzy. The anticipation for her upcoming ‘Eras’ tour, has the nation buzzing with excitement. It’s been quite the journey for fans, with Swift releasing four new albums and re-releasing several classics since her last Australian tour in 2018.
The rush for tickets recently went into overdrive when the first wave of pre-sale tickets for her grand Aussie tour was made available, but with a unique twist – only American Express cardholders could participate. However, despite the VIP package’s hefty price tag (ranging from $899.90 to $1249.90), the demand was so great that the American Express site crashed, leaving fans frustrated and anxious.
After what seemed like an eternity for the Swifties, the issue was finally resolved, with the AMEX team regaining control of the site and making the purchase link available once again. This meant that those lucky enough to own an American Express card could breathe a sigh of relief, knowing that they still had a chance to secure their golden ticket to the show of a lifetime. However, tickets sold out quickly disappointing many fans.
For those who missed out on this first chance, hope is not lost. The Frontier Touring pre-sale is set to begin at 10am this Wednesday, offering another opportunity for fans to grab their tickets. This, however, requires membership with Frontier Touring, but those who have signed up will receive a special code for their purchase on Ticketek.
And for those who still miss out? There’s another lifeline. General tickets are set to go on sale this Friday, June 30th, at 10am for Sydney shows and 2pm for Melbourne shows on Ticketek. A range of options are available, from $379.90 for A reserve seats to $79.90 for G reserve seats, offering every fan a chance to experience the magic of Taylor Swift.
The ‘Eras’ tour is shaping up to be an unforgettable spectacle, with over 40 songs spanning Swift’s incredible career and numerous costume changes to showcase each unique ‘era’. Australian Swifties, get ready for a show like no other!
Don’t forget, there is still a chance to win a double pass on the iHeart Radio website.
