It seems as if Ticketmaster doesn’t want to be anyone’s boyfriend this morning!
Tickets for Taylor Swift’s highly-anticipated “The Eras Tour” have officially gone on sale, and ‘Swifties’ have already shown they understand the assignment; Ticketmaster has reportedly crashed not even an hour after tickets went on sale!
Yesterday, Ticketmaster offered Swifties a chance to grab tickets early with a presale. Swifties quickly flocked to social media to discuss the already chaotic nature of the quest to grab tickets!
A range of Swift-related topics was trending on Twitter, including the ticket outlet itself.
Swifties were already ‘Ready For It,’ tweeting several memes and jokes about the high stakes of acquiring tickets!
Those stakes are reportedly too high for Ticketmaster to handle at the moment. According to Philadelphia radio station, WPST, users are experiencing outage reports on the website, getting error messages, or getting axed from Ticketmaster’s “waiting room” altogether!
Ticketmaster May Not Be ‘Ready For It’ After All: What’s Going On With The ‘Eras’ Tour Ticket Sales?
Twitter users have already experienced a number of problems with Ticketmaster and are sharing their experiences.
One fan tweeted a screenshot of the Ticketmaster error message they received, writing, “it’s been two minutes how did ticketmaster already crash?”
Another fan expressed their disbelief about the odds of a crash happening.
“i don’t honestly believe that there’s 2000+ people, i feel ticketmaster is doing this to everyone to prevent a crash and to just see how many people are there or something idk maybe i’m in denial,” a Swiftie wrote.
Other Swifties are reporting the outlet may have logged them out, leaving them unable to stay signed in to the outlet.
“pretty sure ticketmaster signed me out of my account during the crash and now that I am in the queue, it says i’m signed in but i’m worried when i get through i’m gonna be logged out again…”
How Has Ticketmaster Responded?
If you received a code to the TaylorSwiftTix Presale, please login and access the queue through the link you received via text rather than entering through the Ticketmaster homepage. This will ensure an optimal shopping experience.

Swifties Will Have A Chance To See More Of The ‘Eras’ Tour!
Shortly after announcing the ‘Eras’ tour on November 1st, Swift confirmed the addition of eight shows to the tour.
The ‘Eras’ Tour marks Swift’s first return to the stage in five years. The 32-year-old “Anti-Hero” singer hasn’t completed a tour since touring behind her 2017 album “Reputation.”
She was forced to cancel “Lover Fest” dates in 2021 due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
