Taylor Swift surpasses One Direction in rush for tour tickets
TAYLOR SWIFT is having mixed fortunes on either side of the Atlantic ahead of the launch of her Reputation Stadium Tour.
The End Game singer has surpassed a tickets sale record set by One Direction who played to 56,524 fans at the University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale, Arizona during their 2014 Where We Are tour.
The Ready For It singer, who kicks off her tour on Sunday, is close to selling out the 63,400 capacity venue.
But the 28-year-old still has plenty of seats to shift for her UK tour dates in June.
Sources say she is far from selling out her gigs at the Etihad Stadium in Manchester and London’s Wembley Stadium.
The sales woes haven’t hindered her preparations, however.
Yesterday, she wore big boots — to match her big Reputation — as she posted snaps of her rehearsals.
And Swift — who dates 27-year-old British actor Joe Alwyn — is already making a splash with her show behind the scenes.
The singer treated her new crew by throwing them a pool party at the weekend.
She shared pictures from the fun bash in a series of Instagram stories. In one, where she posed on a balcony with party-goers, she quoted lyrics from her song This Is Why We Can’t Have Nice Things, captioning the post: ‘Jump into the pool from the balcony.’
Swift also posted images of her crew sipping beer by the poolside, writing: ‘Today is our day off.’
