Swifties trying to avoid trouble getting last minute Taylor tickets

FOXBORO, Mass — The struggle is real for Swifties, trying to get last-minute tickets to see Taylor Swift at Gillette Stadium this weekend.

Jordan Millette signed up for the presale, got on a waitlist, but still no luck.

“Since then I’ve been looking for tickets, going on Twitter, looking up the keywords, ‘Taylor Swift Gillette tickets’ because this is my home show, I live 30 minutes away from here,” said Millette.

She searches social media, enters giveaways on the radio, and checks the usual sites like Ticketmaster and Stubhub.

“The prices are astronomically high with 1,000 dollars just to get nosebleeds at the top of Gillette Stadium,” said Millette.

There are Taylor Swift tickets still available on Stubhub, but they’ll cost anywhere from $1500 to $7,000 a ticket.

“I’ve got the tips, I’ve got the tricks, but I’m out of luck as well,” said Millette. “I’m a college student and these thousand-dollar tickets are not what I want to see when I go see my favorite artist.”

With Taylor tickets so hot right now, the Massachusetts Attorney General released a warning Wednesday about scammers trying to sell fake tickets.

Attorney General Andrea Campbell has issued the following advisory extending advice to Massachusetts consumers to avoid fraud, price gouging and other ticket scams:

1. Buy tickets through the performer or venue: Buying through the official links on the performer or venue website guarantees a legitimate ticket that has been verified.

2. Vet your source: If purchasing from a third-party vendor or an unfamiliar site, you can look up the source on BBB.org or other sites that collect consumer complaints.

3. Use payment methods that come with protection: Many credit cards offer reimbursement for fraudulent charges; opt to pay with a card that offers protection rather than other payment methods such as cash, wires or direct payment apps like Zelle or Venmo.

The public should beware of counterfeit ticket sales and transportation scams that may take advantage of consumers planning to attend a concert, festival or sporting event.

“Right now I’m trying to stay hopeful, but it’s getting a little hard as a diehard Swiftie,” said Millette.
