Taylor Swift Sent Out The Shadiest Christmas Cards

Taylor Swift is on tour promoting her new album Reputation, and she has found an ingenious way to fight scalpers; just sell the tickets for more than people are willing to pay for them in the first place.

She has now scheduled another show at the Linc on Friday, July 13.

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. And, once accessible, the tickets are often too expensive for many fans.

Insiders told Billboard Swift's going with a different approach emphasizing higher prices over faster sales - following in the footsteps of artists such as The Rolling Stones and Jay-Z - while leaving available tickets for fans the night of the show.

Philadelphia isn't the only city getting an additional Swift concert.

For those hoping to beat the main sale and secure a ticket before January 31, tickets can be purchased in advance through Ticketmaster's Verified Fan program starting at 10 a.m. on Friday. After all, her most recent 1989 tour was completely sold out in minutes in 2015.

A glimpse at MetLife Stadium's availability for the July 20 and July 21 shows echoes what the source told the newspaper.

Fact of the matter is this: old Taylor, who sold tickets for her concerts at $60 a pop, can't come to the phone right now.

Couple that with six shows in Europe and five shows in Australia and New Zealand, and Swift is looking at earning anywhere between $390 million and $510 million for the Reputation Tour, putting her on track to have one of the top-grossing tours of all time based on Billboard Boxscores.

"There are hundreds if not thousands of tickets left for every show", they said.

The Reputation Stadium Tour kicks off on 8 May (18) in Glendale, Arizona.
