Look what you made him do, ticket sellers.
Massachusetts dad Anthony Silva was forced to spend $21,000 for his daughter and friends to see Taylor Swift’s sold-out concert because his original tickets never arrived, according to a report.
In November, Silva bought four tickets for Swift’s “The Era’s Tour” stop at Gillette Stadium on May 19 as a Christmas gift for his 19-year-old daughter Katlyn.
The entire set, purchased through StubHub cost Silva $1,800, but he was still empty-handed days before the show.
He opted to go through a different ticket site where he met the massive $21,000 price tag — 11 times the total amount he paid.
“This is just not right,” Silva told WCVB. “In my opinion, they should not wait until the day before for the tickets to be sent out by the re-seller.”
StubHub, the third-party ticket exchange and resale company, has a policy where tickets aren’t sent to the purchaser until after the day before the event and alternative tickets weren’t available.
“Approximately $21,000, for better seats but of course you can see this puts me back a little bit,” Silva told the outlet. “I think it’s for no reason but for incompetence through the third party or through StubHub.”
Silva, who also rented a limousine for the all-in experience, had fun at the expense of Katlyn before telling her about the newly acquired tickets.
“We played a joke on them telling them yesterday, telling them the tickets were really gone, and the look on their faces I never want to see again. One girl had a quivering lip. I won’t tell you who,” Silva said.
Katlyn was disappointed when she found out the tickets weren’t delivered, throwing a mini tantrum because of the fiasco.
“I went home slamming stuff, I was so angry, so disappointed because I was looking forward to this for nine months,” she told the outlet.
Swift is scheduled to three nights at Gillette Stadium, home of the NFL’s New England Patriots, where 200,000 fans are expected to attend.
The Friday show welcomed more than 60,000 people, according to CBS.
Ticketmaster had canceled Swift’s “The Era’s Tour” general public on-sale in November, claiming “historically unprecedented” demand at its presale events.
“Due to extraordinarily high demands on ticketing systems and insufficient remaining ticket inventory to meet that demand, tomorrow’s public on-sale for Taylor Swift | The Eras Tour has been cancelled,” the ticket company tweeted at the time.
Twenty-five Swift fans took legal action against Ticketmaster in December, suing the company for fraud and intentional misrepresentation following the fiasco.
Other Swift fans have similarly been burned through the third-party ticket site.
A Maryland family had to pay $2,100 when their tickets weren’t delivered for last weekend’s concert in Philadelphia — compared to the initial $700.
“I wanted Taylor Swift to be my first concert,” said 15-year-old Lyla Mahoney, telling WTOP about the tickets her parents got her from StubHub for Hanukkah “….I was so excited. I had everything packed.”
