When Taylor Swift Is in Demand, the Ticketmaster Website Crashes More than 5000 Times.!
Why not? Taylor Swift’s planned “Eras” tour has fans going bananas. The 11-time Grammy-winning performer is making a theatrical comeback after a lengthy absence of nearly five years. Swift fans are also griping about the Ticketmaster website after it repeatedly collapsed on Tuesday (Nov. 15) due to an enormous increase in demand for presale tickets. Pre-sale dates have been adjusted as a result.
Historically Unprecedented Demand…
Such is the effect Taylor Swift has on her followers. Fans are more excited to see their favourite singer dazzle on stage in her upcoming “Eras” tour, which is why the multiple Grammy-winning artist hasn’t travelled for years. Following an enormous spike in demand for presale tickets for her forthcoming tour, Ticketmaster had significant technical difficulties on Tuesday, Nov. 15.
The presale date was originally scheduled for November 15. However, Ticketmaster’s website failed more than 5000 times before 2 p.m. yesterday when tickets went on sale in a few areas. Taylor Swift is in “extraordinary demand” at the moment.
Although first insisting that there was no problem with its website and that “customers are actively buying tickets,” Ticketmaster eventually acknowledged that there was a problem. Having been locked out for hours was a common complaint among fans.
How Are Fans Reacting?

Millions of people showed up to get tickets for the TaylorSwiftTix Presale, according to Ticketmaster, which said there was “historically enormous demand.” We are working to move fans through the line as soon as possible, so if you are currently in a line, please hold tight.
After experiencing significant difficulties with the presale ticketing procedure for Taylor Swift’s Eras Tour, a large number of disgruntled Swifties who must wait in online waiting rooms took to social media. Some claim to have waited in line for close to four hours and have yet to select their tickets.
Usual $60 “nosebleed seats” are apparently being flipped for $700, according to one fan who wrote, “Sitting in a stopped queue for almost 2 hours for Taylor Swift Eras Tour tickets is my villain birth story.” According to one fan, the resale ticket cost $33,750. This indicates that individuals in possession of tickets have properly capitalised on the accident and the “unprecedented” demand for Taylor Swift.
What Is The New Presale Date?

West coast concert tickets for presale will now be available at 3 p.m., according to Ticketmaster. after it stated that “historically unparalleled demand” had already resulted in the sale of thousands of tickets.
Additionally, Capital One changed the presale date to today, November 16, at 2 p.m., from their original plan to offer tickets to cardholders only. At that time, all text-based presale URLs and codes will still function, according to Ticketmaster.
