Swifties, the next sale is in 5 days! If you’re a Verified Fan and want to make sure you’re able to score tickets before they’re unavailable, then here is our survival guide to snagging Eras tour tickets on TicketMaster on Wed Aug 16, 11am EDT.
1. Know where you want to sit and your budget
To score tickets, you’ve got to be fast. We’d recommend checking out the stadium map beforehand so that you can get a feel for the sections. You should have at least a couple of back up plans just in case the section you were hoping for is sold out. Prices are ranging anywhere from $90 to $500 depending on where you want to sit and depending on the day.
2. Your number in the queue doesn’t determine your success rate
You could be number 12,500 and still be able to snag tickets, so don’t give up. Things like budget and seat choice all determine whether or not you’ll be able to checkout with the coveted ticket, with higher budgets having an easier time finding available tickets.
3. There are 3 ways to browse tickets–and reviews are mixed
There are 3 different ways you can view tickets: map, list, or best available. While fans are split on which is better (for some, the map is glitchy) the best advice is pick one and be quick.
4. Don’t give up!
There’s a time limit for scrolling and for holding tickets in your cart so when it’s your time and you’re scrolling the website, don’t give up if things are looking sold out. If you keep refreshing, other people’s carts may empty meaning that ticket has just become up for grabs.
5. Ticketmaster will officially say when tickets are sold out for the day.
Once Ticketmaster officially alerts that tickets are sold out, then unfortnately you’ve missed your shot this time. Until that official alert though, you got this Swifties!
Good luck to everyone next Wednesday, we think you’ll need it.
