In addition to the release of Taylor Swift‘s new album “Midnights“, #Swifties are also being introduced to a brand new way of getting tickets to see Taylor Swift Live; Introducing TaylorSwiftTix.com powered by Ticketmaster VerifiedFan.
Ticketmaster Verified Fan is a new system that is meant to beat the bots and brokers at their own game by giving fans incentivized ways to compete for the best ticket presales available on the market. Since presales are the only area of the event ticket market that Ticketmaster can still control, they are using a verification system that limits fans to just four tickets per registered and confirmed email address per city on the tour. That means if you want to get a group of 5 or more friends together, your chances of sitting near each other outside of General Admission just went way down.
It also means that you have to register your email for each city you are interested in getting tickets for, so if you’re torn between two cities, you play the game on both sides, buying merch, interacting with the ticket portal, and otherwise jumping through the hoops to lock your place in line and see which city gives you the better deal. On the whole, this is NOT bot-proof by any means, but it does make it more difficult for the scammers and cheats who would most likely not want to go through the extra steps just to turn a few tickets.

What if you don’t use VerifiedFan?
Tickets will still end up in the general market, and then in the secondary market on sites like ours, but just not as many, so the selection will be a little slimmer. It’s important to follow our tips on how to get the best deal on concert tickets, and be sure you are going through a site that offers an honest money back guarantee.
How many Taylor Swift tickets can I get?
It appears that the current limit is 4 tickets per registered VerifiedFan User
