Taylor Swift adds show to Arlington stop on concert tour

Fans are balking at purchasing tickets for Taylor Swift's Reputation tour given the high price tag attached to the seats.

Swift is using a strategy deployed by Jay-Z and bands like The Rolling Stones - price tickets high and have seats available on the primary market up until the day of show.

Tickets for the third show, on July 22, will go on sale on January 31, the stadium said.

Verified fans, who register for the added show via Swift's website, will have the opportunity to purchase tickets in advance. Swift will also added a second Philadelphia show on July 13. This is thanks to her diehard fans that paid a premium for the best tickets available at her concerts. After all, her most recent 1989 tour was completely sold out in minutes in 2015.

Last month, her "longtime" tour promoter told Billboard, "By the time all the tickets are sold next week, I'll be celebrating Taylor's birthday with a cocktail in my hand and sold-out concerts all over the world".

A glimpse at MetLife Stadium's availability for the July 20 and July 21 shows echoes what the source told the newspaper.


The Post reported that Swift's upcoming tour is turning out to be a "disaster", thanks to high-priced tickets and controversial ticketing methods.

The tour has the potential of earning as much as a half billion dollars, which would make it one of the top-grossing tours ever.

Remember when Pearl Jam went to fucking war with Ticketmaster over a $3 service charge?

Swift's first single off the Reputation album, "Look What You Made Me Do" broke multiple records within hours of its release.

The Reputation Stadium Tour kicks off on 8 May (18) in Glendale, Arizona.
