Ticketmaster ‘suspends’ Taylor Swift’s Eras Tour’s sale in France

FRANCE: Taylor Swift’s Eras Tour in France has been halted abruptly by ticketing agency Ticketmaster on Tuesday.

In a Twitter announcement, Ticketmaster informed fans that the sale of Taylor Swift’s Eras Tour for Paris La Défense Arena, scheduled for 9 a.m. and 11 a.m., has been temporarily suspended. The ticketing platform said that the customers will be updated regarding a new on-sale time as soon as possible.

“All unused codes will remain valid,” it said. Shortly. The similar was issued for the Lyon show.

A technical glitch on Ticketmaster’s platform has emerged as the reason behind the disruption, causing fans unable to log into the website using their passwords. The incident resulted in a staggering queue of over 700,000 eager shoppers awaiting their turn to purchase tickets.

Swift is scheduled to grace the stage of Paris’ La Défense Arena from May 9 to 12, 2024, followed by Lyon on June 2-3 of the same year, as part of her highly anticipated Eras Tour’s international leg.

With immense anticipation surrounding the tour, industry analysts from Pollstar predicted it to achieve an unprecedented milestone, becoming the first-ever tour to generate a staggering billion-dollar revenue. The report further estimated that the tour’s final gross earnings were likely to surpass the remarkable figure of $1.4 billion, solidifying Swift’s status as a global powerhouse in the music industry.

The recent technical glitches experienced during the initial day of Swift’s Eras Tour ticket sales in the United States have brought to mind a familiar challenge. Delays, exorbitant pricing, and the unfortunate cancellation of ticket sales plagued the launch, prompting Ticketmaster to ultimately cancel the public on-sale date due to a complete sell-out of all shows.

Meanwhile Swift, in a statement regarding Ticketmaster at the time said, “I’m not going to make excuses for anyone because we asked them, multiple times, if they could handle this kind of demand and we were assured they could. It’s truly amazing that 2.4 million people got tickets, but it really saddens me that a lot of them feel like they went through several bear attacks to get them.”
