As many are already aware, Taylor Swift announced on Tuesday, Nov. 1, that she would be going on tour again. This tour will be named “The Eras Tour,” where Swift will be performing music from a culmination of her entire discography.
As soon as the announcement was made, fans flooded Ticketmaster eagerly trying to register for the Verified Fan Presale in order to improve their chances of securing tickets. I know I was not the only one that sat in the queue for several hours to register for the chance of getting a code. Because of how hectic this process was, fans are already stressed about the process of getting tickets when they go on sale in a few weeks. As someone who has dealt with the stress of buying concert tickets many times before, here are some of the best tips to improve your chances.
First, make sure you have a secure internet connection on a laptop or larger device. Laptops make it easier to navigate the website than a small device. You also want to make sure that you are already logged into your Ticketmaster account and have your card information preloaded there as well, so you do not have to spend time typing this information in when buying tickets. Because of how quickly the tickets are bound to sell out, you want to cut out as many steps as possible.
Next, you can only be logged into your Ticketmaster account and enter the queue once. If you are on multiple devices, each one should be logged into a different account. However, I would advise that you only be on one device in one queue. If you are in multiple queues, your internet will slow down, and you will move through the line slower.
One more important thing to keep in mind: entering the queue early gives you a better chance at getting access to tickets first. If you are on the website as soon as the queue opens, which is often 30 minutes before the sales start, that is best.
As daunting as conquering Ticketmaster can be, Swift has put some standards in place to ensure that ticket scalping will be limited and prices will be as cheap as possible. Some good news for those who had tickets to her “Lover Fest” tour before it was canceled is that those individuals are guaranteed to get a presale code. If you are trying to get tickets, be sure to sign up for the presale and plan ahead. May the odds be ever in your favor!
Presale for “The Eras Tour” begins Tuesday, Nov. 15 and people can register for Verified Fan Presale until Wednesday, Nov. 9 at 11:59 p.m
