On Thursday, TicketMaster announced that it had to close sales for Taylor Swift’s upcoming tour due to unusually high pressure.
But if the ticket exchange was hoping for understanding from the main character, then they can think again. Because she’s mad. Very Mad.
She clearly does that in a story on her Instagram.
“I don’t want to make excuses for anyone, because we have asked them several times if they could handle the demand, and they assured us that they could,” she writes and continues:
“It’s really great that 2.4 million people got tickets, but it pisses me off that so many people feel like they’ve been through several bear attacks to get them.”
She says that she is very protective of her fans, and how throughout her career she has made a lot of efforts to take care of things such as ticket sales herself.
Therefore, it was also difficult for her to leave the task to others and even more difficult for her to look at how wrong things have now gone.
On Tuesday, Taylor Swift sold two million tickets, which is a new record for a solo artist, but this also meant that TicketMaster could not keep up, and therefore had to cancel the public sale, which should have started on Friday.
On Sunday, the pop star won the most prestigious award at the American Music Awards on Sunday US time.
She won the award as artist of the year at the award ceremony.
It’s the fans who decide who wins at the American Music Awards. The award ceremony is the world’s largest of its kind.
– I can’t describe how incomprehensible it is to me that I’m still doing this and that you’re still into it, says the singer on stage after she’s been awarded the prize.
