and live on Freeview channel 276
Ticketmaster and AXS have let thousands of Swifties know whether or not they can get tickets during their presale event next week. Ticketmaster announced it would host its own presale event when Taylor announced the UK leg of her Eras Tour.
Tickets will go on sale this week for fans who received a code from Ticketmaster and AXS in a general sale, following last week’s ‘Midnights’ pre-sale. Fans will have access to purchasing tickets from 11am today, with the rest of the sale spread over tomorrow, July 18 and Wednesday, July 19.
The first wave of general sale tickets will be for fans hoping to go to the Edinburgh date on June 7, 2024 and the London date on June 21, 2024.
Fans simply had to sign up with their email and make sure it was connected to a verified Ticketmaster or AXS account. The registration itself proved just how many people in the UK were desperate for tickets, with waiting times to register reaching over an hour. It’s since been reported that around 14 million across the UK signed up for the presale event leading to reports that 70% of fans could be left without tickets.
Thousands of fans celebrated this week as they secured tickets for the UK shows. However, Those who took part in the presale this week had signed up back in October when they pre-ordered Swift’s tenth album ‘Midnights’, before the tour had even been announced.
Even after the Ticketmaster registration, fans weren’t guaranteed access to the event and there was the possibility of being waitlisted to get access to tickets. If you are waitlisted you will receive an official email telling you so. The AXS email includes: “You are currently on the waitlist for Taylor Swift | The Eras Tour in Edinburgh.There will not be enough tickets for everyone who registered, so a limited number of registered fans received an opportunity to access the sale and others were placed on the waitlist.
“If any tickets remain after selected fans have shopped, we may email you again to join the sale. Please note only fans who were sent links and unique access codes will be able to join the Taylor Swift | The Eras Tour Sale. Do not attempt to join unless you receive a link, as you will not be able to purchase tickets.”
So, what should you do if you get waitlisted by Ticketmaster and AXS? Here’s everything you need to know.
What to do if you get waitlisted for Taylor Swift tickets?
If you have received the disappointing email that you have been waitlisted for tickets, don’t lose all hope yet. There will absolutely be people reselling tickets, and while most will have inflated prices, there are some decent sellers out there given the fact that many fans probably bought too many tickets in the first round of sales.
The waitlisted email from AXS says: “Stay tuned. If you’re selected to move off the waitlist, you will receive an email with a link to join the sale via AXS. Access does not guarantee tickets. Ticket availability is limited. Tickets will be sold on a first-come, first-served basis while supplies last. If you’re sent a link you should join the sale as soon as possible for your best chance to get tickets.”
