Taylor Swift ticket warning issued by South Wales Police

South Wales Police have issued a warning about “large-scale ticket fraud” after arresting two people just days before Taylor Swift’s concert in Cardiff. The force is currently investigating significant allegations of ticket fraud and has detained a 32-year-old woman from Neath and a 27-year-old man from St Mellons, Cardiff, on suspicion of fraud.

Detective Sergeant Grant Phillips of Neath CID stated: “We are investigating a large-scale ticket fraud via a WhatsApp group involving concerts in Cardiff and have two suspects in custody. Anyone who believes they have fallen victim to this fraud should contact us and quote reference 2400197204.”

Taylor Swift is set to bring her Eras Tour to Cardiff following her final performance in Liverpool. The singer has been captivating fans in Liverpool and Edinburgh during the UK leg of her tour. The Eras Tour sees Swift, 34, performing for more than three hours to thousands of fans.

Despite the warnings from South Wales Police, there are still ways to secure tickets for the concert. Last week, a number of ‘partially obstructed limited view’ tickets were released. These tickets are typically held back by event organisers until they confirm how much of the stadium’s seated capacity is required for the set. With the UK tour now in full swing and production space requirements known, these tickets have been made available. Fans who registered for tickets last year but missed out may receive a code from Ticketmaster, allowing them to enter the site’s queue. Last-minute tickets can only be purchased through official sites with this code.

Alternatively, tickets might be available through third-party resale sites such as Viagogo and VividSeats. However, it is crucial to note that many event promoters advise against reselling tickets after the initial purchase, as these tickets may not be valid for entry. Fans attending live events with tickets from resale websites should double-check the ticket terms and conditions at the point of sale.
