“Getting tickets in the United States was impossible”: many Americans came to see Taylor Swift in France

The musical event of the moment is due to a 34-year-old American singer: Taylor Swift.

She begins a European tour this Thursday evening in Paris.

The 280,000 seats for his six concerts in the country were sold out in an hour.

The 1 p.m.

A flood of sequins and pink, cowboy boots, jackets to the glory of their idol, but above all, tents and survival blankets. Some Taylor Swift fans spent the night outside the concert hall, where she will perform this Thursday evening. So to wait, it’s a make-up session and impromptu choir for those we call “swifties”, as we see in the TF1 report above.

World star

Taylor Swift is an author, composer, and performer of her own songs. At 34, the American already has a 15-year career. There are more than ten albums that she revisits in a 3.5 hour show. Almost unknown a few years ago, the craze now also affects France. And to think that in 2011, she played in Paris in front of a half-empty concert hall. Today, the Pennsylvania native has just entered the very exclusive club of billionaire artists, something no one before her had achieved thanks to income from her music alone.

Today, the singer’s six French dates are sold out. Most of the approximately 280,000 seats were sold quickly after the ticket office opened last July. A little over 20,000 others have been sold since last week after a reassessment of the gauge, but for the benefit of fans already registered on the waiting list.

Among the spectators who came for Taylor Swift, there were a third of foreigners, the majority of whom were Americans. “Getting tickets in the United States was impossible”, explains one of them. In France, the best seats cost 247 euros, excluding resales on the black market. It’s expensive, but far from the thousands of euros that you sometimes have to pay to see it in an American theater, where prices vary depending on demand.
