I’m a long way from coming, Swifties. Today is officially the last day you can buy tickets for Taylor Swift’s Era Tour in Sydney and Melbourne in February 2024.
This week is an absolute tagline for fans of the hugely popular pop star, who announced that she would be touring Australia just weeks before.
Frontier pre-sale was in total chaos on Wednesday literally, millions of fans logged into the site to score tickets, ranging in price from $79 to $379.

We are no mathematicians, but with millions of people trying to buy tickets – and only about 600,000 seats – the odds are very much against us.
Thankfully, Swift’s camp add two extra programs (one in Melbourne on February 18 and one in Sydney on February 26) after the pre-sale went into turmoil earlier this week.
Public tickets are available from 10am for shows in Sydney and 2pm for shows in Melbourne on Friday, June 30 in Australia via the Ticketek website. Expect lots of tears, hair pulling, nervous twitches and of course the frenzy of Taylor Swift reciting lyric poetry.
Here, we’re blogging live about the ticket war as it goes, with new updates on when tickets go on sale and when they eventually sell out. All times in AEST.
8.40am: Swifties prepare for war
After Wednesday’s frantic pre-sale, fans who missed out on tickets are using their newfound wisdom for today’s scramble.
9Honey’s Jo Abi, who was hoping to buy a ticket as a gift for her daughter Kitty and felt “flattering” after Wednesday’s game, said she was “playing a longer, calmer game” today.
“There will be three of us trying to buy tickets for my daughter – me, my partner and my daughter will be logging in from school because so are a lot of her friends,” says Jo.
“If we got tickets, great, if not, we tried. I was so stressed out. It ruined my week. Never want to do this again.”
8:30: ‘I would go to every show if I could’
If you’re wondering if the stress of securing tickets is worth it, Jemima Skelley is here to reassure you.
Swift stans have been to eight Eras shows so far, they flew to the US when the history-making tour began.
“I have been called a ticket salesman and financially irresponsible, but honestly, I don’t care,” Skelley wrote to 9Honey yesterday.
“Watching the Eras tour is one of the happiest, most surreal moments of my life, and I would go every night if I could.”
