Taylor Swift Tickets: How to get tickets to the Eras tour in London and Cardiff

Although Taylor Swift isn’t due to kick off the UK and European leg of her Eras Tour until May 2024, tickets for her 13 UK dates are on sale this month.

Fans were left furious last week after presale tickets for her ongoing world tour appeared on secondary ticketing sites for thousands of pounds within minutes.

Sites selling tickets crashed, with nearly 40,000 people joining the online queue on when the presale for the US pop star’s London and Edinburgh shows began at 11am. Early access was granted to fans who had pre-ordered Swift’s album Midnights.

On reselling site Viagogo, at the time of writing, tickets for London’s Wembley Stadium show were on sale for as much as £3,352.

Fans are in with another chance, though, as the general sale for Swift’s UK dates continues this week.

Today (19 July), tickets will go on sale at 11:00 BST for Swift’s London show on 23 June 2024. At 13.00, tickets will be made available for another London date on 17 August 2024, and then at 15.00 for her Cardiff show on 18 June 2024.

So, in order to set you up for success, The Independent has created a guide to help you land a coveted ticket.

As a reminder, pre-sale codes don’t guarantee a ticket purchase. Only a percentage of tickets will be reserved for pre-sale.

What if I didn’t pre-register for tickets?

Unfortunately, if you didn’t register with Ticketmaster within three days after the dates were announced on 20 June, you won’t have access to the general sale.

A certain number of those who registered will get first access to the sale, the rest will be put on a waitlist. If tickets remain, those on the waitlist may receive an access code to join the ticket sale.

Advanced registration is a way for Ticketmaster to minimise bots and professional resellers from poaching tickets from real fans who actually plan on attending the show.

How many tickets can I buy?

Each customer is limited to four tickets only.
