So is there anything Swift fans can do to fix the Ticketek Marketplace not working or are we going to face a second Ticketmaster case?
Do you have any chance of getting those tickets?
Let's be honest, Taylor Swift fans race against time and each other when these concert tickets go on sale. Tens of thousands of tickets have sold out in seconds at many previous concerts.
We're sure Ticketek is aware of this, and the Ticketek Marketplace not working could be the reason behind the Ticketek Marketplace not working, as even global ticket sellers want to make sure their sites can handle the traffic when their systems have already crashed due to an influx of visitors.
