$100 for Taylor Swift tickets: Aussies turn to desperate measures

Ads have started popping up online from Aussies looking to pay others for access to pre-sale Taylor Swift tickets.

Taylor Swift fans were ecstatic when the singer announced her Australian tour dates, but some are going further than others to make sure they secure their spot for her upcoming shows.

Aussies have begun posting ads on AirTasker, looking for people with an AMEX card who can access pre-sale VIP packages, and are willing to pay up to $100 for them to secure the goods on their behalf.

Amber is offering $100 on Airtasker, for “a computer whiz that can secure Taylor Swift tickets”.

“Need someone with access to Amex pre-sale tickets for Taylor Swift to secure two tickets for Taylor Swift concert in Sydney,” the posting said.

“Must be someone with experience doing this and a total computer whiz that can secure tickets during high internet traffic.”

Stephanie is offering $20 for someone to get three tickets for her.

“Get three Taylor Swift tickets for next week. For these dates, 16 Feb, 2024. The amount is only for the task. I will pay separate for the ticket. The pre-sale ticket is on the 28th June, public is the 30th June,” the posting said.

What’s the deal with pre-sale tickets?

Aussies with an AMEX will get access to the first round of pre-sale for VIP packages when they go live on Monday, June 26 at 10:00am AEST for Sydney shows and 2:00pm AEST for Melbourne shows.

For those who don’t have an AMEX, never fear. The next pre-sale round will happen through Frontier Touring - the Taylor Swift concert promoter. Anyone can sign up to be on the Frontier pre-sale waitlist here.

Finally, general release ticket sales will begin on Friday, June 30 at 10:00am AEST for Sydney shows, and 2:00pm AEST for Melbourne shows, via Ticketek.
