Taylor Swift Fans Sue Ticketmaster Over Eras Tour Ticketing Fiasco

A group of Taylor Swift fans have filed a lawsuit against Ticketmaster over the recent Eras Tour ticketing fiasco, Deadline reports and pitchfork can confirm. The complaint (viewed by Pitchfork), details the ticketing giant’s bungled ticket sale for Swift’s 2023 stadium trek. Ticketmaster had to cancel the public on-sale date for the tour “due to extraordinarily high demands on ticketing systems and insufficient remaining ticket inventory to meet that demand,” as the company wrote at the time. The Plaintiffs are suing Ticketmaster and its parent company Live Nation for “fraud, price-fixing, and antitrust violations,” alleging that “intentional deception” allowed scalpers to buy the majority of tickets.
