Taylor Swift fans are blaming Ticketmaster for an “insidious” rule change that could void Ellas tour tickets, asking, “Does that mean I can’t go?”
Taylor Swift fans once again blamed Ticketmaster after learning that tickets they had purchased for friends and family to the much-anticipated Eras tour of the UK could go to waste.
Ticketing giants are updating their terms of service to mark sold-out tours as “lead booker” events. In other words, the person who bought the ticket has to come to the venue to enter.
This is likely to deter ticket sellers and resellers, as tickets are already selling for up to £10,000 on resale sites.
However, many of the Swifties who attended UK gigs in London, Liverpool, Edinburgh and Cardiff are upset that tickets they bought as gifts for friends have been voided.
People complaining that this could prevent children whose parents bought tickets from entering, and that people who wanted to attend but were unable to attend due to illness may not be able to gift tickets to their friends.
It’s unclear if this also applies to tickets purchased through AXS, but resale tickets for tours will likely go unused.
Ticketmaster has been criticized for repeatedly changing its policy for its long-awaited tour.
FEMAIL has reached out to both TicketMaster and AXS for comment.
An AXS spokesperson told FEMAIL, “At this time, we are still waiting to confirm if tickets can be resold or transferred to event attendees.”
