More bad news for Swifties: Ticketmaster cancels Friday on-sale for Taylor’s Eras tour
The band’s publicist confirmed Wednesday that tickets for Taylor Swift, whose North American tour is set to kick off this weekend, would be available beginning Friday on Ticketmaster’s website.
Ticketmaster had already stated that they would be holding back tickets for Swift’s U.S. dates until Thursday. Instead of tickets to that show going on sale Wednesday morning as it had been initially planned, they will now be available starting at 10 a.m. on Thursday.
“At this point, Swift, who is not scheduled to perform Friday, has no idea yet when she will be back on the road. As we continue to support Swift through this unprecedented situation, we’ve been in discussions with Ticketmaster to figure out how the process should proceed. Ticketmaster is committed to doing all we can to ensure our customers are able to hear Swift’s music in venues across the festival circuit and we’re going to continue to monitor the situation closely,” the company said in a statement earlier Wednesday.
Meanwhile, Swift announced on Twitter on Wednesday that the upcoming tour would have three additional stops. The tour will begin in Toronto, Canada and will stop in Philadelphia, Phoenix, Las Vegas and Los Angeles.
In a message to the band, Swift called to remind fans that she’s still working on her next album, which is expected to be released in early 2016. During a Tuesday interview with CNN’s Anderson Cooper, the singer said she would be releasing a deluxe edition of her most recent album, “Frozen”, on Christmas and that the new album could be released as early as November.
Ticketmaster, meanwhile, will no longer have the ability to sell Swift’s Eras tour tickets online. The company had begun selling tickets for the tour online on Tuesday morning after Swift’s tour announcement on Wednesday.
