Taylor Swift adds 3rd Gillette Stadium show for upcoming tour

Taylor Swift adds 3rd Gillette Stadium show for upcoming tour

Taylor Swift must have a big reputation in New England, because she's just added a third show at Gillette Stadium this summer.

Swift has performed a total of five times at Lincoln Financial Field, which includes back-to-back shows in June 2015 and July 2013, along with her debut in August 2011.

Fans can purchase tickets in advance through the Taylor Swift Presale powered by Ticketmaster Verified Fan, according to a Gillette Stadium spokesperson.

The singer will now be performing at the Patriots' home field on July 26, 27, and 28 as part of a worldwide tour in support of her new album, "Reputation".

Swift's 1989 tour sold out arenas across the globe within minutes of tickets being available for purchase.

At Houston's NRG Stadium, where Swift plays September 29, the cheapest tickets are $160 apiece, with some seats listed high up in the rafters selling for $230, meaning a young fan would have to pay between $400-$500 for a pair of tickets to her show.

Some have blamed the widely criticised "Verified Fan" program which was pitched as a way of battling scalpers by ensuring tickets go to real fans, but ended up looking a lot more like a system to compel Swifties to buy a shitload of very spenno merch.

The Post reported that Swift's upcoming tour is turning out to be a "disaster", thanks to high-priced tickets and controversial ticketing methods.

The report also commented that the tour has yet to sellout in any city, with one insider telling the newspaper, "There are hundreds if not thousands of tickets left for every show".

While many markets have moved up to two nights, E. Rutherford and Foxboro have upped the ante to three nights hosting Taylor.

"We'd like to sell the last ticket to her concert when she takes the stage each night", David Marcus, executive vp and head of music at Ticketmaster, told Billboard last month.
