At 3pm on Jul 5, Ticketmaster announced that presale tickets had officially sold out. By then, multiple listings had appeared on various resale sites – with VIP packages going as high as S$2,500 (about twice the price of their original value of S$1,228).
If you didn’t score tickets during the UOB presale, shake it off and try again when general sales start on Jul 7.
General sales will start from 12pm on Friday for selected registered fans. These fans will receive an email on Jul 5 with information on how to access general sales tickets, along with a unique access code that allows them to buy up to four tickets. Only fans with these access codes can participate in Friday’s general sales which will be happening via Ticketmaster and SingPost outlets.
Sure, 8 million people reportedly applied during the fan registration period but who knows? You might be among the lucky few to get the access code. As of 2pm on Jul 5, multiple Swifties have received emails with their access codes, so be sure to keep a close eye on your inbox! A few fans have even started selling access codes on resale sites, with some going as high as S$500.
And if all else fails, you can always hold on to the hope that organisers will release more seats closer to Swift’s concert dates. After all, Live Nation sold additional standing pen spots for Twice’s September concert on Jun 26 and Coldplay currently has a waitlist for tickets to their sold-out shows.
