Taylor Swift fans yet to score a ticket to the Australian leg of her Eras Tour had their hopes and dreams come true on Tuesday – but there’s a catch.
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.
‘Anticipation is at fever pitch as Australia prepares for the start of Taylor Swift The Eras Tour,’ a frontier spokesperson said in a statement.
‘With the show setup now under way, it has been confirmed that limited tickets, including restricted view tickets at $65.90, can be released for sale.’

These coveted tickets will go on sale on Tuesday at 2pm AEDT for all Melbourne concerts and 4pm AEDT for all Sydney concerts.
Despite the less than ideal seating, fans of Taylor Swift, 34, proved in November they were willing to buy any ticket to get close to their idol.

A limited quantity of tickets became available at 10am AEDT, 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.
