Taylor Swift adds another Pa. concert to her 'Reputation' tour

Taylor Swift adds another Pa. concert to her 'Reputation' tour

She has now scheduled another show at the Linc on Friday, July 13.

Ticketmaster's Verified Fan programme has also been blamed for its stringent measures stopping scalpers from purchasing tickets.

Another point of controversy comes with Swift's use of Ticketmaster Verified Fan, which allows fans to purchase tickets prior to the general public.

Swift already amassed $180 million worth of ticket sales in the first seven days that they went on sale.

The singer will now be performing at the Patriots' home field on July 26, 27, and 28 as part of a worldwide tour in support of her new album, "Reputation". In contrast, two Spark Arena shows on Swift's Red Tour sold out in 2013, resulting in organisers arranging a third show to cater for those who missed out.

This will be Swift's fifth tour stop at Gillette Stadium - and her eighth, ninth, and 10th shows there - and while all of her previous concerts have sold out, she's struggling mightily to sell tickets this time around.




So, if these high-priced tickets aren't enough to scare you away from seeing Tay slay on her Reputation Tour, there are still plenty of seats available for purchase, and Taylor just announced even more dates!

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

Yet those sky-high ticket prices could still lead to Swift notching one of the highest grossing tours of all-time.

Insiders told Billboard Swift's going with a different approach emphasizing higher prices over faster sales - following in the footsteps of artists such as The Rolling Stones and Jay-Z - while leaving available tickets for fans the night of the show.

Concert ticket sales are probably the best way musicians can earn money in this day and age.

"I paid $150 for my ticket with wonderful seats for the 1989 tour", one fan was quoted as saying.
