Reports that Taylor Swift's ticket sales so far for the Reputation Tour are not doing well are seriously misguided as the tour is on track to be one of the top selling of all time.

Swift is using a strategy deployed by Jay-Z and bands like The Rolling Stones - price tickets high and have seats available on the primary market up until the day of show.

Registration for the Taylor Swift Presale powered by Ticketmaster Verified Fan starts January 5 at 10 a.m. EST and runs until January 18 at 10 a.m. EST.

Swift's first single off the Reputation album, "Look What You Made Me Do" broke multiple records within hours of its release.

The single was also Gates' first song to make the US Billboard Hot 100 and was also his first song to be certified Gold. The Baton Rouge rapper served nine months of a 30-month sentence for a weapons-related warrant in an IL state prison.

Sunday alcohol sales bills take step forward
Liquor stores have fought Sunday sales for years, predicting as many as a quarter of IN liquor stores could go out of business. Meeting during the summer, the commission recommended Sunday sales but not the expansion of cold beer sales.

Concert organizers say due to overwhelming demand, the country/pop superstar will now play in Foxboro on Thursday, July 26, in addition to shows already scheduled for July 27 and July 28.

Some so-called "Swifties" - aka diehard fans of Taylor Swift - may be unhappy with exorbitant prices to see the Reading-born singer on her upcoming tour.

But some tickets that went out to the general public in early December were actually cheaper than the ones offered to people in the Verified Fan program, despite them spending extra money to ostensibly gain an advantage over those who hadn't bought a pricey piece of apparel. You can purchase them in advance, however, if you are registered as a verified fan. Citing sources close to the singer, Billboard reported this week that Swift sold almost $180 million worth in tickets in the first week. What Ticketmaster wants to avoid is having all the tickets sell out in seconds and then have fans turn to sites like StubHub for available tickets. This is contrary to the sales from her 1989 album tour in 2015, which reportedly sold out in minutes.
