Are you ready for Taylor Swift’s long-awaited Eras tour? After the Amex ticket site crashed today before pre-sale tickets went live, fans are having the sudden realisation that securing tickets to the upcoming Australian tour will be no easy feat. Here’s everything you need to know before tickets go on sale:

When and where?

There are five dates confirmed across Melbourne and Sydney:

Melbourne Cricket Ground
Friday 16 and Saturday 17 February

Accor Stadium
Friday 23, Saturday 24 and Sunday 25 February

The stadium capacity at the MCG will be more than 100,000, while Accor has a capacity of 83,500. If that sounds like a lot to you, beware, there are over one million people reported to have registered for a pre-sale code!

When are tickets on sale?

The first step is to register for the Frontier Members presale, which goes live for Sydney at 10am and Melbourne at 2pm, Wednesday 28 June.

To get your hands on these, you’ll need to sign up to be a member of Frontier Touring and register for a presale code.

Tickets for the general public will be available from Friday 30 June – again starting at 10am for Sydney shows and 2pm for Melbourne shows.

What are our tips?

Now that you’re across the key dates and times, here’s some insider-knowledge to make sure you don’t miss out on tickets.

  1. Create or login to your Ticketek account ahead of time and make sure all your payment information is up to date.
  2. Jump on to the website 15 minutes before and, if you’re registered for the presale, ensure you have written out your unique code to enter as soon as possible.
  3. Finally, and this one’s important, don’t refresh your browser once you’re in the queue. No matter how long it may feel like it’s taking, this will only send you to the back of the queue.

Good luck Swifties!
