Swift fans can’t buy the presale tickets

Ticketmaster has Taylor Swift fans seeing red as Swifties get shut out of tour presale for Swift’s new album “Reputation.”

Fans who buy in ahead of the general public will be able to get in the gate to see Swift perform one show and meet her at the venue of their choice, but will not be able to enter presale for the others. Swift’s rep tells Billboard they are trying to make a big name for the album.

“I think that her fans are going to be really excited by this,” a rep says. “I’m assuming that you’re going to want to see her up close. The album does come out early, but you can buy it at your favorite stores and have it mailed to you.”

The rep says the presale ticketing system has a strict no-tickets-sold policy, adding, “There may be a number of reasons why we don’t want to give tickets away to fans, including the fact we want to give fans a chance to be able to get in front of Swift live.”

This isn’t the first time that Swift fans have been turned away for presales, as she’s done this before. In 2015, when presales were limited for Taylor Swift’s red album when it came out, fans had to wait in line in the rain to get a presale, or buy at retail.

One of Swift’s most recent concerts, the CMA Fest, sold out hours in advance. So far, Swift fans have had to wait in line to get to the front of the line to buy the presale tickets, but Swift fans can stream the show online.

Swift fans have until Friday to get their presale tickets.
