Taylor Swift tickets breakdown probed by attorneys general


NASHVILLE, TENN. >> The breakdown in Ticketmast­er’s sales of Taylor Swift tickets is a mess some attorneys general aren’t shaking off.

With fans sharing outrage and heartache over the fruitless hours they spent trying for seats for Swift’s upcoming concert tour, top legal chiefs in Nevada, Tennessee and Pennsylvan­ia have launched investigat­ions into the fiasco.

“Trouble, trouble, trouble,” tweeted Pennsylvan­ia Attorney General Josh Shapiro in a reference to Swift’s 2012 hit song ‘I Knew You Were Trouble’ as he asked the public to file complaints about using Ticketmast­er with his office.

Shapiro, a Democrat who recently won Pennsylvan­ia’s governor race, has since thanked people for their “swift response” while noting his office had received “a lot of complaints” to look into.

Over in Tennessee, Attorney General Jonathan Skrmetti said he wants to ensure consumers have a fair shot at buying tickets.
