Pop sensation Taylor Swift has recently announced 14 additional European dates for her much-anticipated Eras tour, including three extra shows in the UK. These new dates will see Swift performing additional nights in Liverpool, Edinburgh, and London in June next year, adding to the initial 10 dates she had previously announced.
However, these new dates have quashed rumors of Swift headlining Glastonbury 2024, as she is now scheduled to perform at Dublin’s Aviva Stadium on all three days of the festival. The US rock band Paramore has been confirmed as the supporting act for her European dates.
The announcement of these new dates coincided with the day UK fans who pre-registered for tickets were set to find out if they would receive an access code to purchase tickets for the tour. However, even those fortunate enough to receive a code will face stiff competition to secure their spot at the concerts. The demand for the US leg of the Eras tour was so high that Ticketmaster’s systems were overwhelmed.
For those looking to secure tickets, there are several key points to keep in mind. Customers are limited to purchasing four tickets each. If you have access codes for more than one city, you will need to go through the process for each separate date.
In case you miss out on securing a ticket, avoid panic buying from unofficial websites as scammers often exploit fans’ desperation by listing fake tickets. Instead, keep an eye out for last-minute ticket releases and trust in the power of Swifties, who often trade tickets they can’t use at face value on social media platforms like Facebook and Twitter.
If you manage to secure a seat, you’re in for a treat. Swift’s latest tour is a three-hour extravaganza that looks back over each of her 10 studio albums. The 44-song concert also incorporates a “one-off” acoustic set every night, with Swift promising to play a different track at every venue.
Tickets will be sold via both Ticketmaster and AXS. Fans are advised to update their accounts before the sale and add their credit card details in advance to speed up the checkout process. It’s also crucial not to refresh your browser once you’re in the queue as this will put you back to the end of the line.
Unfortunately, only fans who registered with Ticketmaster within three days after the dates were announced on 20 June can access the general sale. Even then, they’re not guaranteed tickets. Some will receive an on-sale code the afternoon before tickets go on sale, while others will be placed on a waiting list.
Finally, don’t lose hope if you don’t get a code immediately. Swift has already added an extra date in London, and there could be more to come. So, keep your fingers crossed and stay tuned for more updates!
