Taylor Swift Breaks Record
Taylor Swift stunned her fans by releasing four previously unheard songs the day before the show.
Eyes Wide (Taylor’s version), Safe & Sound (Taylor’s version), If This Was a Movie (Taylor’s version), and All of The Girls You Loved Before were among them.
Moreover, Glendale, Arizona, recently changed its name to ‘Swift City’ in honour of the artist.
Swifties are treated to 44 songs throughout the Eras Tour, which lasts three hours and fifteen minutes.
The playlist is separated into four sections: the ‘Lover’ era, ‘Cruel Summer,’ ‘The Man,’ and ‘You Need To Calm Down’.
The Back To December vocalist is now the female artist to have the most attended show in the United States with over 70,000 attendants.
It is a 52-show tour that will take the artist all throughout North America.
The gig has received rave reviews, with many people describing her as one of the hardest-working artists in the industry. Despite the fact that the tour began with tremendous enthusiasm, the ticketing site is being sued.
A group of Taylor Swift fans is suing Live Nation Entertainment, the parent firm of Ticketmaster, which handled ticket sales for Swift’s most recent concert, ‘The Eras Tour,’ which took place last month.
The ticket presale was a disaster, with fans exposed to hours of waiting, message issues, and higher ticket cost.
Ticketmaster is accused of breach of contract, deliberate deception, fraud, fraudulent inducement, and multiple antitrust breaches, according to court records examined.
The plaintiffs claim that Ticketmaster ‘intentionally and willfully deceived’ ticket purchasers regarding ticket availability.
The plaintiffs are requesting a 2,500 dollar penalty against Ticketmaster for each breach of Business and Professions Code section 17200.
