Ecstatic Dad Celebrates After Being Selected for Taylor Swift Tour Presale

A father from Raleigh, North Carolina jumped for joy when he received a notification on November 14 that he was randomly selected to participate in the ticket presale of Taylor Swift’s upcoming tour ticket presale.

Footage recorded by Jorge Carrillo’s daughter shows Carrillo’s pensive expression as he scrolls through his phone for the notification. He swiftly changes tune upon realizing he’s been selected, and bursts into a variety of cheers and dances.

“I told my daughter that I would freak out if I did, as participation would be chosen randomly,” Carrillo told Storyful.

Unfortunately however, Carrillo was unable to secure any tickets for the tour, as Ticketmaster reported an unprecedented demand for the presale tickets and said fans were experiencing intermittent issues with their website.

“Sadly, the website crashed, but I am still hopeful for the Capital One Presale,” he added. Credit: Jorge Carrillo via Storyful
