Taylor Swift is under fire from her fans over the sky-high price of concert tickets for her highly anticipated Reputation US tour. The pre-sale of the tickets kicked off on 5 December (Tuesday), with VIP seats priced at an eye-watering $1500 (£1100).
To get into the "Snake Pit" fans need to shell out as much as $800 (£600) while other seats cost around $500 (£350).
Although eager to watch their idol perform during the Reputation Tour, fans are not happy with the expensive price tag of the tour tickets. Many took it to Twitter to express their unhappiness over the pricing.
"Now that I've seen ticket prices for the #reputationStadiumTour, I'm glad I got Wednesday instead of Tuesday. I now have 24 hrs to sell my car, auction off all of the organs I don't NEED on the dark web, rob a bank, take out a loan, & donate plasma," one fan of the Ready For It singer wrote.
"Never felt more personally victimised than when I woke up to see the Taylor Swift ticket prices," a Twitter user wrote. "I've seen Taylor Swift in concert FIVE times and I'm pretty sure all five tickets can add up to the price of one front row ticket for reputation smh. Two of those five were even pit tix!! Wtf," added another.
The tour kicks off in the US on 8 May 2018 after which Swift will land in the UK in June for concerts in Manchester, Dublin and London. Get the tour details by clicking here. For ticketing information click here.
Ahead of her tour, the 27-year-old singer graced the cover page of British Vogue. But being the unconventional icon that she is, the singer wrote a poem for the magazine instead of an interview. "Obviously she is a world-class lyricist – and has written a stunning poem just for Vogue – but she also takes her duties as a role model very seriously," editor Edward Enninful said.
"Taylor is acutely aware of her following and how she communicates with young women, and will never portray a character that would send the wrong message," his message added.
