Taylor Swift Fans Aren't Happy About 'Reputation' Tour Ticket Prices

Swifties rejoice: Taylor Swift's management team offered excellent news to the singer's verified fans on Wednesday, with the announcement of new dates on the stadium tour for her latest album, Reputation, and how they can obtain tickets.

Once more, tickets will first be made available via Swift's byzantine "Verified Fan" program, which Ticketmaster touts as a means for foiling scalpers but critics have characterized as a money grab, since the more Swift merch you buy, the better your shot at the good seats. Registration opens at 10 a.m. on January 5 and continues until 10 a.m. on January 18.

In related news, tickets to Katy Perry's Friday show in New Orleans are now starting at $23.

Couple that with six shows in Europe and five shows in Australia and New Zealand, and Swift is looking at earning anywhere between $390 million and $510 million for the Reputation Tour, putting her on track to have one of the top-grossing tours of all time based on Billboard Boxscores.

Sources now tell Billboard each show on the tour is forecast to sell between $7.5 million and $10 million worth of tickets.

The Reputation tour arrives in Texas Sept. 29 when Swift plays NRG Stadium in Houston.

The match looked headed for a replay, but Glenn Murray 's strike three minutes from time sent Palace out of the competition. A tally of 22 points from 18 subsequent games is remarkable and this game will be in his winnable column.

Promoters for the Bad Blood singer chose to inflate the sale prices as a result of scalpers and bots procuring a significant number of seats for her 2015 tour in support of her 1989 album and reselling them for huge profits.

The Post reported that Swift's upcoming tour is turning out to be a "disaster", thanks to high-priced tickets and controversial ticketing methods. Taylor's spicy new vengeful persona is also a vastly more expensive one, and that's not necessarily translating to ticket sales.

Remember when Pearl Jam went to fucking war with Ticketmaster over a $3 service charge? Citing sources close to the singer, Billboard reported this week that Swift sold almost $180 million worth in tickets in the first week.

The second show will take place on Friday, July 13.

"I paid $150 for my ticket with fantastic seats for the 1989 tour", one fan was quoted as saying.
