The biggest show in the country is at Omaha’s CenturyLink Center Friday and Saturday but some may be left in the lobby without a seat. Kristi Andersen is the director of communications for the Metropolitan Entertainment and Convention Authority and says Taylor Swift tickets are in high demand and unfortunately there are a lot of ticket scams out there right now.
Andersen says there have been a number of Taylor Swift ticket scams across the country. She says, “A situation has come to our attention that there may be some fraudulently printed tickets on our ticket stock. We are having local police investigate.” Those tickets include the CenturyLink Center Omaha logo.
Anderson says they encourage people to buy tickets from an authorized source only. In Omaha, that would be at the CenturyLink Center box office, Ticketmaster and Ticketmaster retail outlets. She says those are the only outlet sources they can verify as legitimate.
Those who purchased tickets from a third party source should check their tickets. If you have lower bowl tickets, 100 level seats, to one of this weekend’s shows you are advised to contact the CenturyLink Center to have them verified.
Andersen says if tickets do not scan the night of the show, concert-goers will be escorted to the box office. She says they will try to explain the situation and help you the best way they can. Andersen says, “If we have other tickets we can sell you to get you into the show we will do that. The hard part with this show is it is sold out for both Friday and Saturday night so we not may have a lot that we can do.”
