Taylor Swift fans crash Ticketmaster site trying to buy ‘Eras Tour’ tickets

The flock of Taylor Swift fans (or Swifties) trying to nab presale tickets to the popstar’s upcoming tour caused the site to become inaccessible for thousands on Tuesday. 

The American ticket sales and distribution company addressed the issue on social media.

"We are aware fans may be experiencing intermittent issues with the site and are urgently working to resolve," Ticketmaster’s customer support Twitter account posted Tuesday morning. 

Later, Ticketmaster followed up with additional details, citing a "historically unprecedented demand with millions showing up to buy tickets for the TaylorSwiftTix Presale."

 The company said hundreds of thousands of tickets had already been sold, and if fans have secured a ticket, then they are all set. 

Swift fans trying to access the ticketing site shortly after the presale for Verified Fans began were getting a 503 error and the site appeared to be down.
