Taylor Swift’s U.S. Fans Flock To Europe To Bag Cheaper Eras Concert Tickets

American fans of Taylor Swift have been taking advantage of cheaper ticket prices for the European leg of her record-breaking Eras tour.

The Times of London reports that, in the 40,000-capacity Defense Arena in Paris where Swift recently performed, up to 9,000 of the seats were filled by American fans, for whom the overseas trip was a bargain compared with ticket prices back home, even when the cost of transport and local accommodation was factored in.

The paper reports that ticket prices to see Swift in concert were around half the price charged in the US, while hotels are also cheaper than to be found in most US cities. And while American fans could be charged up to $10,000 for the best seats on resale sites, French legislation bans the resale of tickets for cultural or sporting events, meaning prices stay low.

Swift’s Paris concerts saw her debut some brand new songs from her latest album The Tortured Poets Department. She performed My Boy Only Breaks His Favourite Toys, and also a mash-up of two songs from her 1989 album, Is It Over Now? and Out of the Woods.
