The United States Federal Senate is getting involved, folks.
Such is the power of Taylor Swift, or her fans, that when angry, they unleash a collective anger that rivals that of a furious, vengeful, and all-powerful god upon learning that her roommate stole her last slice of pizza. I had hidden in the bottom of the fridge.
This week, the aforementioned branch of Congress probed Ticketmaster’s business tactics in a hearing called in large part by the fiasco that occurred in November when tickets for Swift’s “Eras” tour went on sale.
It’s one of the most anticipated departures in years, as Swift hasn’t toured since 2018, and the incredible demand crashed the Ticketmaster website. Some fans who had lined up for hours were left empty-handed, angering those who were not among the 2.4 million people who had purchased tickets.
Yes, Swift is that popular: Even though she’ll play two massive concerts at Allegiant Stadium on March 24 and 25, she could probably sell double or triple the tickets.
It will undoubtedly be the 2023 concert in Las Vegas.
Swift’s upcoming concerts highlight what is likely to be another great concert lineup at Allegiant Stadium, following a banner year 2022 in which Billboard magazine named it the best international stadium. Between November 1, 2021 and October 31, 2022, the stadium grossed more than $182 million and attracted more than one million fans over 24 shows.
Among the concerts scheduled for 2023: on April 1 the Red Hot Chili Peppers will return, who electrified the venue in August; loop-loving British heartthrob Ed Sheeran will play on September 9; and on October 7th Pink, a live pop artist.
And hundreds more shows are lined up for what promises to be another monster year of Las Vegas concerts. Here are some of the most outstanding concerts that have been scheduled so far:
