NH Swifties disappointed after general ticket sales for Taylor Swift were cancelled

Outrage has sparked across the country as thousands of die-hard Taylor Swift fans were unable to get tickets to Swift’s New Era tour, with fans blaming Ticketmaster. Swift is coming to New England for just three nights next year, so whether this would be Granite Staters’ first or fifth visit, Swifties in New Hampshire have been planning on getting these tickets for months, and now they have a feeling that Ticketmaster failed them and left a “void” in their hearts. “I was really angry to see that Ticketmaster got it wrong,” said fan Katie Power. “I feel like Ticketmaster has really let down and disappointed a lot of fans,” said fan Grace Weingartner. Swift hasn’t toured in five years. She sold a record more than 2 million tickets on Tuesday, before Ticketmaster announced it was canceling tickets to the general public. “I literally used a day of my paid time off to get these tickets because it meant so much to me,” Weingartner said, part of the issue. “I just wish they would do the right thing and not allow the tickets they bought for resale to be resold,” Power said. Even New Hampshire officials are looking closely at what happened. The attorney general’s office issued a statement to News 9 on Thursday, saying, “We have already had discussions with other attorney general staff and have expressed an interest in working with them to verify what happened here.” But Power and Weingartner cannot simply “shake it off”. They said they waited hours just for the pre-sale code, and hours after that for their backup plans. “I signed up the day she announced the tour,” Power said. “I literally did anything to afford these tickets and now I don’t want them. It was a really disappointing process,” Weingartner said. Power and Weingartner haven’t given up hope entirely. Katie said she will try to win some radio contests to get tickets, while Grace said she will likely give in to the scalpers when Swift comes to Foxborough next May.

Outrage has sparked across the country as thousands of die-hard Taylor Swift fans were unable to get tickets to Swift’s New Era tour, with fans blaming Ticketmaster.

Swift is coming to New England for just three nights next year. Whether this was Granite Staters’ first visit or fifth, Swifties in New Hampshire have been plotting to get these tickets for months, and now they feel Ticketmaster let them down, leaving a “void” in their hearts .

“I was really angry to see that Ticketmaster got it wrong,” said fan Katie Power.

“I feel like Ticketmaster has let down and disappointed a lot of fans,” said fan Grace Weingartner.

Swift hasn’t toured in five years. She sold a record more than 2 million tickets on Tuesday, before Ticketmaster announced it was canceling tickets to the general public.

“I literally took a day off my paid time to get these tickets because it meant so much to me,” Weingartner said.

Ticketmaster’s website crashed due to high demand, and confirmed the cancellation in a statement Thursday, saying insufficient remaining ticket inventory was part of the problem.

“I just wish they would do the right thing and not allow the tickets they bought for resale to be resold,” Power said.

Even New Hampshire officials are looking closely at what happened.

The Attorney General’s office issued a statement to News 9 on Thursday, saying, “We have already had discussions with other Attorney General staff and have expressed an interest in working with them to review what happened here.”

But Power and Weingartner can’t just “shake it off”. They said they waited hours just for the pre-sale code, and hours after that for their backup plans.

“I signed up the day she announced the tour,” Power said.

“I literally did everything I could to afford these tickets and now I don’t want them. It was a really disappointing process,” Weingartner said.

Power and Weingartner haven’t given up hope entirely.

Katie said she will try to win some radio contests to get tickets, while Grace said she will likely give in to the scalpers when Swift comes to Foxborough next May.
