All pre-sale tickets to Taylor Swift's 2024 Melbourne and Sydney shows have sold out. The Frontier Touring pre-sale for tickets to The Eras Tour Sydney shows began at 10am on June 28. At 1.45pm, Ticketek confirmed the sale had been sold out. The pre-sale for the Melbourne's MCG shows began at 2pm and by 4.17pm, all tickets had sold out. Some fans are not happy. Fans were earlier reporting on social media that the Ticketek app has crashed under the huge demand, while others were questioning if anyone has been let in to the site. "Is anyone being let in? I'm so stressed," one fan tweeted. Another asked, "has anyone seen proof of someone getting thru (sic)". But the Ticketek Twitter account assured fans that the process was working. "Customers are successfully purchasing. Please be patient and don't refresh your browser." And after hours in the online queue many lucky fans were rewarded for their dedication, sharing their jubilation on social media. There are only five shows in Australia, two at the MCG in Melbourne and three at Sydney's Accor Stadium, in February 2024. As one of the biggest artists in the world demand for the shows has been red hot. An initial pre-sale on June 26 for the top VIP packages sent the American Express website into meltdown. Fans have been anticipating a battle to get tickets after a fiasco unfolded when the tour's US tickets went on sale last year. IN OTHER NEWS: The unprecedented demand has seen both the Victorian and NSW governments issue warnings to potential scalpers. The Victorian Government officially declared The Eras Tour in Melbourne a major event, triggering protection for fans under anti-scalping laws. It means people who advertise or resell tickets for more than 10 per cent above the original sale price face fines from $925 up to $554,760. Meanwhile NSW Fair Trading wrote to online sales platforms including eBay, Ticketek and Gumtree warning them of their obligation to protect customers. The NSW Government also has powers to fine those found to breach ticket reselling laws with fines of $110,000 for a corporation or $22,000 for an individual. "Consumers shouldn't be forced to shake it off when they're being ripped off," Fair Trading and Better Regulation minister Anoulack Chanthivong said. "The days of buying tickets for major events with the plan of on-selling to consumers at exorbitant profits is over." The remaining tickets go on sale to the general public on June 30.
