Taylor Swift ‘Red’ Concert Tickets Sell Out Incredibly Fast [VIDEO]
Congratulations to our listeners who won tickets to see Taylor Swift in concert May 25th at Dallas Cowboys Stadium, before you could buy them. The remaining tickets for the upcoming ‘Red Tour’ sold out within minutes of going on sale Friday morning.
It all started when it took only 60 seconds to sell out two shows at Staples Center in Los Angeles. Two shows. One minute.
And it didn’t stop there. The Taylor Swift tickets that went on sale Friday all disappeared at a frantic pace. Swift sold out Rogers Centre in Toronto and two shows at the Verizon Center in Washington, D.C.’s in five minutes. The show at Detroit’s Ford Field sold out in 10 minutes, and two shows at Atlanta’s Phillips Arena in only five minutes. The Chicago concert at Soldier Field was the slowest, taking all of 30 minutes to sell out.
Never one to let down her fans, the Swift has added more 2013 Red Tour dates to her jam-packed schedule. She’ll play an additional Toronto show on June 14, plus Foxborough, Mass. on July 26 and two more shows in L.A. on Aug. 23 and Aug. 24 in addition to the previously-scheduled Aug. 19 and Aug. 20 concerts.
These staggering statistics should come as no surprise to anyone. The highly anticipated Taylor Swift ‘Red’ CD sold over a million copies in its opening week of release, and the new album’s first single, ‘We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together’ set an iTunes record for the fastest downloaded single in its history. Plus, Swift has suggested that her upcoming performance will be even more theatrical than her hugely successful ‘Speak Now Tour’ that wrapped up in March.
Swift told ‘The Boot‘:
“I love a theatrical production. I love for you to see a different thing for each song. I love for there to be surprises, having the audience think they’re going to see one thing and then it’s a completely different thing than you thought. That’s a really rewarding part of putting on a show, is getting to know that the crowd got their money’s worth. For the effort it took to file into the arena and find parking for their car and all that, I want them to completely, without a doubt, feel like it was worth it to come see me play.”
The concerts sold out fast enough to justify almost immediately adding four more shows, including 2 more in Los Angeles, one in Toronto and one in Foxboro, Mass. Unless you already bought tickets or won them from us, we wish you good luck getting your Taylor tickets!
