Sunrise hosts Natalie Barr and Matt Shirvington surprised a Taylor Swift fan with tickets to the popstar’s Sydney concert on Tuesday.
Natalie McGrath, 21, from Wattle Grove in NSW was left speechless and crying after she became the first winner of a double pass to the hitmaker’s show.
The Channel Seven breakfast show is currently running a giveaway with 100 tickets up for grabs.
The hosts called Natalie and revealed she was the first winner of the competition.
‘Congratulations Natalie you have won a double pass to see Taylor Swift live. What does that mean?’ Matt asked.

‘A lot, thank you,’ Natalie said before breaking down in tears.
‘I was at work, so my mum was entering for me. Then she told me the code and I just kept going, I didn’t stop entering,’ she explained.
‘I’m a massive fan. I can’t believe it! I was in Europe at the time (tickets were on sale) and I couldn’t get tickets.’
‘We are so glad the tickets are going to the right people,’ Matt said.
Tickets to Taylor Swift’s Sydney shows were reported to have sold out within 82 minutes.
A limited quantity of tickets became available at 10am AEDT on November 10, and drew what is speculated to be millions of eager fans vying for fewer than 100,000 ‘partially obstructed-view’ seats at the time.
By 10:25am AEDT, only single seats were available, and at 11:01 am, it was announced that the February 24 show in Sydney had sold out, followed by the February 23 show minutes later.

By 11:22am, all tickets were reported to be sold out. Limited tickets for ‘partially-obstructed-view’ seats for Taylor’s Melbourne shows went on sale at 4pm AEDT and were sold out within the hour.
Frontier Touring reopened ticket sales on Tuesday with ‘limited’ numbers available for the pop superstar’s Melbourne and Sydney shows, but warned fans will have a ‘restricted’ view of the stage.
Just days ahead of her first show at the MCG on Friday, Swifties can pay $65.90 for the newly released restricted-view sets.
