Taylor Swift fans burst into tears Monday in a battle for American Express VIP Package pre-sale tickets to her Australian shows next year.
And while many Swifties are on their way to see the pop star in February, others are worried about missing out on the second batch of pre-sale tickets, followed by the general public sale.
Pre-sale for Frontier members for the pop superstar’s Aussie shows begins on Wednesday, June 28 at 10am – with tickets and VIP packages available – while general tickets go on sale Friday, June 30, with Sydney at 10am local time, and Melbourne at 2 p.m. on sale.
Demand for tickets to the American pop star’s shows is expected to be unprecedented and pre-sale allocations are likely to sell out.
Ticketek expects 10 times the number of people who tried to access the AMEX presale to try the Frontier presale and general public sale.

“Fans should remember not to leave the Lounge page or refresh their browser. The page will refresh itself regularly to get more fans to buy.’
Fans are also reminded that there is a strict time frame when purchasing tickets.
“Once fans are in the lounge, they should sit quietly and wait to be let through to the event page,” a Ticketek spokesperson added.
“And then, when they’re done, they have to remember to watch the timer and complete their purchase within the time frame.”
It’s never too early to start preparing for when the tickets go on sale.

For Wednesday’s presale, Frontier members have been advised to head to frontiertouring.com/taylorswift as soon as possible to get their unique presale code and then bookmark the page.
They must remember their presale code and not share it with anyone.
When buying tickets as a group, it is always important to plan and agree on the performance date, ticket price category and any arrangements in advance. That way your timer won’t run out before you buy it.
There is a limit of four tickets per customer for each of Swift’s shows.
So it’s a good idea for Swifties to choose who and how many people they hope to go with well before tickets go on sale.

Another tip is for each person to choose a different concert date when purchasing tickets to increase their chances.
Fans are encouraged to visit Ticketek at least 15 minutes before tickets go on sale to give them the best chance of purchasing tickets.
Ticketek is the only authorized seller of Taylor Swift’s Eras Tour tickets in Australia.
Tickets are only available for access through the Ticketek app, which must be downloaded with the latest version before the shows.
“Our team at Frontier has worked tirelessly with Ticketek to try and make the process for these shows as smooth as possible, but we are seeing historically unprecedented demand for these concerts,” said Frontier CEO Dion Brant.
We ask fans to remain calm and be kind to each other. Be prepared, read our presale tips and whatever you do – don’t refresh your browser.
“If you can’t get tickets during the presale, don’t panic, there will be another opportunity at the Friday sale.”
