Are tickets still available for The Eras Tour?

The tour is sold out but people are being told to keep an eye on Ticketmaster and AXS for official tickets, as there's a chance fans who can no longer attend will resell theirs.

Third-party ticket sites such as Viagogo do have tickets listed but at more than triple the price of face value. Standing tickets cost £617 each whereas seated tickets are as much as £647 which includes restricted views.

Sites such as Vivid Seats allow fans to buy resale tickets from other fans. However, it is important to note many event promoters say tickets should not be resold after initial purchase and will not be valid for admittance to gigs.

Fans attending live events with tickets acquired through resale websites are advised to double-check the ticket terms and conditions at the point of sale - such as Ticketmaster or Live Nation - to ensure a smooth live event experience.

Tickets could be voided if they're found to be bought second-hand. As a result, fans are buying at their own risk. With that said, Viagogo also commented: "Viagogo is a regulated marketplace where fans have the guarantee."
