Ticketmaster Sued By Taylor Swift Fans Over Ticketing Debacle

No Taylor? No peace!

A gaggle of Taylor Swift fans are suing Ticketmaster over its botched November 15 ticket sale for her Eras Tour.

The fans collective are suing the company for “fraud, price-fixing, and antitrust violations,” accusing it of “intentional deception” that allowed scalpers to buy most of the tickets.

Ticketmaster controls the primary ticket sales market, and has a stake in the secondary market as well. The lawsuit alleges they were “eager to allow” scalpers into the presale event in order to collect extra fees on resold tickets.


The lawsuit (read it here) contends that even if there was no intentional collusion, the company wasn’t prepared for the ticketing onslaught, an accusation Swift herself has made.

Named in the lawsuit is L.A. County, the location of Ticketmaster parent company Live Nation. The lawsuit asks for the court to hit the company with a civil fine of $2,500 per violation, which would add up to a substantial amount for a stadium show.

Ticketmaster apologized to Swift and fans after the presale, blaming an overwhelming surge and bot attacks for creating a massive demand. That activity locked out many fans that had registered and received special codes allowing ticket purchases. Additionally, the public ticket sale was canceled because of limited amounts of tickets left.

Swift claimed she was “assured” Ticketmaster could handle the expected high demand for tickets. She lamented that “It really pisses me off that a lot of (fans) feel like they went through several bear attacks to get them.”

Ticketmaster claimed that more than 3.5 million people registered for the presale, the largest registration in history.

I think/hope we’ll get Speak Now in Spring then 1989 late Summer/Autumn.

I feel pretty confident there won’t be any direct overlap between ‘new’ eras and the re-recordings so until we get the final music video(s) for Midnights I don’t see any announcements coming.

I would imagine they’ll go all in with 1989 as well, they’ll definitely want bigger numbers than Red (and maybe even Midnights…).
 
It could also be 33, which is the age she was turning. I do not discard the possibility that it means something else too, but i feel like we've reached a point where we're seeing clues when there aren't any
That's the obvious thought but we know that Taylor does work like that. I find the March 3rd theory surprisingly strong because Midnights should be done by that and it would be a perfect lead in for the Eras Tour. So even if she didn't want to send hidden messages this time it would be one that makes sense.

If there's a proper second single push then I don't see Midnights being done by the start of March at all. It'll take 3-4 months for anything to really take off after Christmas (in the US anyway).
