Taylor Swift: extra tickets added with two more shows in Sydney and Melbourne announced

After an estimated 4 million people queued online for tickets on Wednesday the US pop star has announced two more Australian concert dates

Taylor Swift has announced two more shows in her Australian tour next February after record-setting ticket sales on Wednesday.

Presale tickets to three Sydney concerts and two in Melbourne sold out in hours after more than 4 million users joined the online queue for under half a million tickets – though some of the numbers may have been fans opening multiple browsers to maximise their chances.

On Thursday morning Frontier Touring announced two extra shows, at Sydney’s Accord Stadium on 26 February and Melbourne’s MCG on 18 February.

Tickets will go on sale on Friday, staggered with Sydney on sale at 10am and Melbourne at 2pm.

Though the ticket presale sold out on Wednesday, Ticketek said some VIP and hotel packages were still available.
