As American popstar Taylor Swift embarks on her highly anticipated Eras tour, ticket resellers are capitalizing on the opportunity to make a quick profit. Swift is set to perform over 40 shows in 18 cities across Europe this summer, attracting “swifties” from North America eager to take advantage of lower ticket prices due to stricter consumer protection laws in Europe.

The tour’s massive popularity has led to skyrocketing prices in the hospitality industry, with hotels and other services seeing significant price hikes. The high demand for tickets has left thousands of fans scrambling, with many disappointed as venues sold out within minutes. Those who missed out on initial sales are now turning to ticket resale platforms, where prices can reach multiple times the face value despite regulations aimed at curbing unfair practices in the secondary market.
