NC Attorney General Investigating Ticketmaster After Taylor Swift Chaos

UPDATE: (11/18/22) – North Carolina Attorney General Josh Stein announced on Twitter that his office will investigate Ticketmaster.  The announcement comes as thousands of Taylor Swift fans tried to purchase tickets to the singer’s Era’s Tour.

Stein said the investigation will look into Ticketmaster for “allegedly violating consumers’ rights and antitrust laws.”


CHARLOTTE, NC – Fans are in uproar as Ticketmaster prepares to cancel Friday’s general public sale for the upcoming Taylor Swift Tour.

The ticket distribution company shared the news early Thursday afternoon via Twitter. 

The abrupt cancellation comes after Ticketmaster stated that more than two million tickets were sold for her upcoming tour. 

Swift’s ticket sales break a record for the most tickets ever sold in one day, however, fans unable to purchase tickets were not pleased with the news and took to Twitter to express their frustration. 

Tuesday’s presale tickets for Swift’s The Era Tour caused Ticketmaster to crash prompting the sudden halt of sales.

Swift’s last tour was canceled due to the pandemic, making this her first time touring since 2018. 

Fans continue to wait eagerly, as Ticketmaster has not verified whether or not ticket sales will continue in the future.
