Taylor's Reputation Tour Could Be the Top-Selling Tour of ALL TIME

Fans are balking at purchasing tickets for Taylor Swift's Reputation tour given the high price tag attached to the seats.

For those hoping to beat the main sale and secure a ticket before January 31, tickets can be purchased in advance through Ticketmaster's Verified Fan program starting at 10 a.m. on Friday. Fans who register and have been verified via Taylor Swift Tix will receive priority access.

In related news, tickets to Katy Perry's Friday show in New Orleans are now starting at $23.

Swift's first single off the Reputation album, "Look What You Made Me Do" broke multiple records within hours of its release.

The Post reported that Swift's upcoming tour is turning out to be a "disaster", thanks to high-priced tickets and controversial ticketing methods. It's estimated the singer could get close to half a billion dollars by visiting around the world in many huge stadiums.

Philadelphia isn't the only city getting an additional Swift concert.

Some have blamed the widely criticised "Verified Fan" program which was pitched as a way of battling scalpers by ensuring tickets go to real fans, but ended up looking a lot more like a system to compel Swifties to buy a shitload of very spenno merch. Citing sources close to the singer, Billboard reported this week that Swift sold almost $180 million worth in tickets in the first week.

Swift already has MetLife shows at the Meadowlands scheduled for July 20-21 and there are plenty of seats available, Ticketmaster's interactive seat charts showed on Wednesday.

Even though ticket sales for the tour have been below par, Swift is still going to make a ton of money. This is contrary to the sales from her 1989 album tour in 2015, which reportedly sold out in minutes.
