Taylor Swift’s tour promoter is shifting blame for the botched “Eras” ticket sale squarely onto Ticketmaster, doubtlessly fueling much more considerations in regards to the Dwell Nation-owned ticket vendor’s dominant position within the trade.
AEG Presents, the corporate answerable for dealing with Swift’s upcoming tour, has rejected claims made by Ticketmaster and Dwell Nation’s largest shareholder, Liberty Media, that the promoter selected to work with the ticketing web site.
“Ticketmaster’s unique offers with the overwhelming majority of venues on the ‘Eras’ tour required us to ticket via their system,” AEG stated in a press release to CNBC. “We did not have a selection.”
Dwell Nation did not instantly reply to CNBC’s request for remark.
AEG Presents’ remark is the most recent present of finger-pointing after the general public ticket sale was canceled final week in gentle of utmost demand. Swift herself blamed an “exterior entity” and stated she would not “make excuses for anybody.”
