Taylor Swift Sells $180m Tickets In Seven Days

Taylor Swift’s Super Spenno ‘Reputation’ Tour Tix Aren’t Selling So Great

Citing "overwhelming demand", promoters have added yet another Taylor Swift show at Gillette Stadium.

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

Tickets go onsale to the general public on Wednesday, Jan. 31 at 10 a.m. but fans will have the opportunity to buy tickets in advance and more details are available here.

Swift sold her Reputation album for over a million within four days of its release on November 10, so one would expect that ticket sales for the album tour would follow the same trend. Stone Gossard and Jeff Ament testified before Congress that it was an unfair business practice and the band tried (and ultimately failed) to book a tour only in venues that didn't rely on Ticketmaster to book sets, because they didn't want their fans to have to pay more than around $20 for concert tickets. While several recent stories have warned of poor ticket sales - including a New York Post article this morning - those close to Swift say the "Look What You Made Me Do" singer sold $180 million worth of tickets in the first seven days of sales - that's four days of sales through the Verified Fan platform and three days of sales to the general public that began December 13. However, these claims were dismissed as Billboard got their hands on sales data from sources close to the singer, which showed that she is having no trouble offloading tickets to her shows.

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

Philadelphia isn't the only city getting an additional Swift concert.

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

The second show will take place on Friday, July 13. Though her 1989 world tour boasted numerous sold out performances (it eventually became the highest grossing tour of 2015), it appears her considerably more expensive snake persona is a tougher sell.

Concert ticket sales are probably the best way musicians can earn money in this day and age.
