Early sales of Taylor Swift tickets for her show at Buffalo’s HSBC Arena this summer are potentially reaching four-figures.
While several dates for the popular singer-songwriter’s upcoming tour appear on her official Web site, including the June 21 show at the arena, tickets have not yet gone on sale. But, several broker sites are listing Swift tickets under what is commonly known as speculative sales, and some front row, floor seat tickets are being listed for more than $1,000, according to ticket search engine FanSnap.
On the lower end, FanSnap said some tickets are being offered for $120 a piece.
According to WIVB-TV, a representative from one broker site, TicketTango.com, alluded to the possibility that the site might have received tickets for sale through an arrangement with the HSBC Arena, which led arena officials to deny any such deal existed. Some Swift tickets on TicketTango.com were being offered for well above $1,000 a piece. See the video below.
Area ticket broker Della Giammusso, co-owner of VIPSeats.com, told WIVB-TV that brokers use various techniques to obtain tickets. “Everyone attempts to get them in a different way.” Giammusso’s site does not list any Swift tickets for sale for the June 21 show.
