Limited tickets remain for one of Taylor Swift’s Sydney concerts in February, after this morning’s general tickets went on sale at 10am.

Frontier Touring advised fans shortly before midday that only package tickets to The Eras tour were still available, and the A-G reserve ticket allocation had been exhausted.

Soon after midday, a Twitter update from Frontier announced the Friday and Saturday ticket allocation had been exhausted, and only VIP and hotel ticket packages remained for the Sunday and Monday night concerts.

Ticketek and Frontier Touring have not confirmed how many tickets are still available.

Frustrated fans, who missed out on buying any tickets, expressed disappointment on social media about waiting online for hours without an opportunity to purchase tickets.

After more than four million people tried to buy tickets in Wednesday’s presale, general tickets to Swift’s Sydney performances, including a fourth show announced on Thursday, went on sale at 10am. General tickets to Swift’s Melbourne shows will be on sale from 2pm AEST today.

American Express cardholders had access to the first round of ticket sales on Monday. High ticket demand led to technical difficulties, even before Monday’s sale went live, but the site was running smoothly soon afterwards.

Wednesday’s second presale went smoothly despite millions of people flooding Ticketek.

When tickets went on sale for Swift’s Eras tour in the US, there were massive issues with systems not coping with demand. VIP packages cost anywhere between $349.90 to $1249.90, while regular tickets start at $79.90.

Those with extra tickets can resell them on the official Ticketek resale platform, which guarantees fair pricing, legitimate tickets and secure purchase. This will open September 4. Anyone looking to resell outside the platform must ensure they charge no more than 10 per cent above than the original price.

Swift’s Australian tour kicks off next year, beginning in Melbourne on February 16, 17 and 18 and then heading to Sydney for February 23, 24, 25 and 26.
