The hits keep on coming for Ticketmaster in the fallout of the Taylor Swift concert fiasco, as now a group of Taylor Swift fans have filed a lawsuit against the Live-Nation owned company regarding the pre-sale ticket situation last month, according to Deadline.
The lawsuit claims that, “millions of fans waited up to eight hours and were unable to purchase tickets as a result of insufficient ticket releases”, in regards to Swift’s Eras Tour ‘Verified Fan’ back in November.
Ticketmaster controls the primary ticket sales market, and has a stake in the secondary market as well and the lawsuit alleges they were “eager to allow” scalpers into the presale event in order to collect extra fees on resold tickets.
Swift claimed she was “assured” Ticketmaster could handle the expected high demand for tickets, adding that “It really pisses me off that a lot of (fans) feel like they went through several bear attacks to get them.”
The company claimed that more than 3.5 million people registered for the presale, which is the largest registration in history.
