Taylor Swift Sells $180m Tickets In Seven Days

Sky high prices are reportedly keeping fans from buying tickets to Taylor Swift's upcoming Reputation tour, per a story by the New York Post.

Swift has performed a total of five times at Lincoln Financial Field, which includes back-to-back shows in June 2015 and July 2013, along with her debut in August 2011. Fans who register and have been verified via Taylor Swift Tix will receive priority access. Those tickets will be available for pre-sale on January 23rd, and will go on sale on January 31st!

The reason she is about to earn lots of money from the tour is thanks to a new strategy.

Sources now tell Billboard each show on the tour is forecast to sell between $7.5 million and $10 million worth of tickets.

Concert organizers say due to overwhelming demand, the country/pop superstar will now play in Foxboro on Thursday, July 26, in addition to shows already scheduled for July 27 and July 28. 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.

Swift's "Reputation" stadium tour kicks off on May 8.

Clarkson also had raves for Golden Globes host Seth Myers, saying that "if you don't watch Seth Meyers , you're stupid". The 47-year-old singer got close to her boyfriend at the InStyle and Warner Bros.

Yet those sky-high ticket prices could still lead to Swift notching one of the highest grossing tours of all-time.

At Houston's NRG Stadium, where Swift plays September 29, the cheapest tickets are $160 apiece, with some seats listed high up in the rafters selling for $230, meaning a young fan would have to pay between $400-$500 for a pair of tickets to her show.

If your 2018 wish was for more Taylor Swift - you're in luck.

'We're not trying to sell all of her tickets in one minute.

"Sales so far have been a mega disappointment", one music industry insider told The Post.
