Which Australian Cities Will Taylor Swift Visit? 

Brace yourselves – one bit of news about Taylor’s upcoming Aussie tour isn’t the greatest. 

In 2023 The Courier Mail reported that “sources” say Taylor will only be performing in Sydney and Melbourne. 

The sources revealed that the popstar would be skipping Brisbane, Perth and Adelaide because of “time constraints and travel costs.” 

And it looks like the news was true!

With two separate presale events now finished and the general sale sold out – it’s safe to say many Swifties missed out. And it’s nothing to do with you, we promise! Turns out Ticketek’s waiting lounge didn’t queue fans chronologically. 

“Everyone in the Ticketek lounge has an equal opportunity to get into the site regardless of when they have arrived,” Adrian Digiacoma, a representative at Ticketek told PEDESTRIAN.TV. 

This explains why some people only waited 20 minutes for tickets, whilst others who jumped on early never got through. 

Fortunately for Swifties that missed out, Ticketek has released one last saving grace, with a new batch of partially obstructed side view tickets going on sale from 2:00 pm on Tuesday, February 13. 

Ticket prices will start at $65.90 for H Reserve and will go up to $379.90 for A Reserve, with a strict limit of four tickets per customer. The resale also includes access to a variety of last-minute VIP packages and hotel and ticket packages, so be sure to join the queue here for your final chance to secure Eras Tour tickets!

If you missed out on the final flash sale, there’s still hope! In good news to literally everyone, Ticketek has opened their fan-to-fan resale for Taylor Swift’s Eras Tour on Ticketek Marketplace. 

The sale, which kicked off at 10 a.m. AEDT on Friday, November 24th, will give Swifties who still haven’t got their hands on tickets the opportunity to purchase verified resale tickets from other fans who have purchased their Eras Tour tickets through Ticketek during the prior general sales and now wish to sell their ticket.

Who is Taylor Swift’s support act?

Joining the pop star, at least for the US leg, will be: Paramore, Phoebe Bridgers, girl in red, MUNA, HAIM, beabadoobee, Gracie Abrams, GAYLE and OWENN.

Eras will mark Taylor’s first tour in five years, following her 2018 Reputation concert. That year’s highest-grossing music tour by a female artist saw the Getaway Car songstress joined by Charli XCX, Camila Cabello and more.

In Australia, Taylor will be supported by Sabrina Carpenter. 

When was Taylor’s last tour?

Taylor was meant to tour again in 2020 with Loverfest, but her plans were thwarted by COVID-19.

“This is an unprecedented pandemic that has changed everyone’s plans and no one knows what the touring landscape is going to look like in the near future,” she said in 2021.

Since 2018 – and the Reputation tour – Taylor has built her discography substantially, releasing four new albums and two re-releases.

New music includes the albums: Lover, Folklore, Evermore and, most recently, Midnights, while the re-releases include Taylor’s Versions of the old records Fearless and Red.

The re-releases also included a slew of previously unheard ‘From The Vault’ tracks, meaning that the 33-year-old has dropped a total of 90 new songs, not including collaborations with HAIM, Big Red Machine, etc.
