Demand for Taylor Swift Tickets Crashes Ticketmaster

Ticketmaster was forced to reschedule presale windows for Taylor Swift's concerts at SoFi Stadium next year due to "unprecedented demand," the ticket agency said Tuesday.

The singer had previously announced plans for her first major tour in five years, including five stops at the Inglewood stadium in August 2023.

Presale tickets went on sale Tuesday, but with demand soaring and taxing the online system, Ticketmaster announced late Tuesday morning that sales for the L.A., Las Vegas, Santa Clara and Seattle shows were delayed from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Tuesday.

Additionally, the Capital One cardholder on-sale time was postponed until 2 p.m. Wednesday.

"To provide a smooth experience for cardholders and address the historic demand for tickets, Capital One Cardholder Presale has been rescheduled to Wednesday, 11/16 at 2 p.m. local venue time for all shows. Rescheduling will not impact ticket availability for Capital One cardholders," Ticketmaster tweeted.

The agency said hundreds of thousands of tickets were sold Tuesday, and fans who purchased those were "all set."

Swift has said that her "Eras Tour" will be "a journey through the musical eras of my career, past & present."

It will begin March 18 at State Farm Stadium in Glendale, Arizona. The U.S. leg of the tour is set to conclude with five performances at SoFi Stadium, Aug. 3-5, and Aug. 8-9.

Swift will be joined on the tour by Paramore, beabadoobee, Pheobe Bridgers, girl in red, Muna, Haim, Gayle, Gracie Abrams and Owenn.
