DETROIT – Taylor Swift fans have flooded the Ticketmaster site, all trying to get tickets for her “Eras” tour.
Tickets went on sale Tuesday (Nov. 15) at 10 a.m. local venue time. The waiting room opened 30 minutes prior. But no matter how fast you were, it seems like everyone is in the queue with 2,000+ people ahead of them.
The U.S. leg of the tour begins March 18 in Arizona and wraps up in Los Angeles on Aug. 5. Taylor Swift is performing at Ford Field in Detroit on June 9 and June 10.
