Over one million Swifties in virtual queue for Taylor Swift concert tickets UOB pre-sale

SINGAPORE — Taylor Swift, the renowned American singer-songwriter will be performing for a total of six nights at the Singapore National Stadium in March 2024 as part of her “The Eras Tour”.

Last month, the registration for General On-Sale on Ticketmaster took place from 23rd to 28th June.

This Wednesday (5 Jul) is an important date for Swifties who are United Overseas Bank (UOB) Cardmembers. They will have the opportunity to secure a concert ticket starting from 12pm.

The demand for tickets is astonishingly high. As of 1.30 pm on Wednesday, some Swifties reported extremely long queues, with over 1.4 million fans waiting in the online ticket booking system.

Prior to this, some Swifties faced issues accessing the Ticket Master website at least an hour before the start of the presale. However, it appears that the error has been rectified, as more than a million people are now in the virtual queue for the tickets.

There are an estimated 300,000 tickets available across the six days of the concert.

According to Ticketmaster’s FAQ, a random queue number is assigned to those who access the ticketing link. This queue is implemented to manage traffic flow and identify and restrict access by bots.

Each buyer has only a 10-minute time limit to complete the transaction, and ticket sales are limited to a maximum of four tickets per account.

Ticket prices for Taylor Swift’s six-night concert at the National Stadium in March 2024 range from $108 to $348, with VIP packages also available.

General sales will start on Friday (7th Jul) at noon, both online on Ticketmaster and physically at SingPost outlets islandwide. This is open to everyone who obtained an access code after a prior pre-registration exercise.

Taylor Swift last performed in Singapore back in 2015 during her “The 1989 World Tour.” However, she did not include Singapore in her “Reputation Stadium Tour” in 2018, where she only had a stop in Tokyo.
