Taylor Swift Sent Out The Shadiest Christmas Cards

Taylor Swift Sent Out The Shadiest Christmas Cards

Citing "overwhelming demand", MetLife Stadium announced a third show has been added for Taylor Swift's "Reputation" tour.

This will make Swift the first act to play two nights at the Bank.

The Taylor Swift "reputation" stadium tour kicks off on May 8 in Arizona and this will be Swift's fifth and sixth time performing at Lincoln Financial Field, where she made her debut in August 2011. For the July 20 show, there are complete rows throughout the upperdeck of the stadium where not a single ticket has been sold. And, once accessible, the tickets are often too expensive for many fans.

Another point of controversy comes with Swift's use of Ticketmaster Verified Fan, which allows fans to purchase tickets prior to the general public.

The Post reported that Swift's upcoming tour is turning out to be a "disaster", thanks to high-priced tickets and controversial ticketing methods.

What's better than one Taylor Swift concert in the Twin Cities?

Billboard reports that the $180 million came from four days of verified fan pre-sales, and three days of public sales.

Insiders told Billboard Swift's going with a different approach emphasizing higher prices over faster sales - following in the footsteps of artists such as The Rolling Stones and Jay-Z - while leaving available tickets for fans the night of the show. It's estimated the singer could get close to half a billion dollars by visiting around the world in many huge stadiums. "We're not trying to sell all of her tickets in one minute; we're trying to figure out how to sell tickets in a more modern way".

One music industry source told the New York Post "sales so far have been a mega disappointment", adding that "there are hundreds if not thousands of tickets left for every show".
