Ticket resellers were trying to fetch as much as $28,000 per ticket on Wednesday for Taylor Swift’s upcoming U.S. stadium tour as fans flocked online for a second day looking to score seats to see the “Anti-Hero” singer live.

Presales began on Tuesday and brought millions of people to the Ticketmaster website, causing periodic outages and long online wait times.

“The Eras Tour” is Swift’s first since 2018, and it is not unusual for websites to encounter problems with hot shows or products such as collectible sneakers or video game consoles.
