The sale was canceled due to high demands on ticketing systems and insufficient ticket inventory to meet that demand.

The post, which was deleted hours later, said that a record number of fans tried to buy tickets during Tuesday's "Verified Fan" pre-sale, which fans had to sign up for in order to get access. They said that the most ever sold for an artist in a single day was more than two million tickets.

The lucky ones had trouble getting tickets. Many were stuck in the queue for hours at a time and were told their codes were invalid and they wouldn't be able to get tickets.

The issues were caused by the large number of bot attacks and fans who didn't have invite codes. About 15% of users experienced site issues, but it didn't say how it was defined.

Swift said in her statement that she has brought a lot of elements of her career in house in order to improve the quality of her fans' experience.

She wrote that it was difficult for her to trust an outside entity with her relationships and loyalties.

It's amazing that 2.4 million people got tickets, but it really pisses me off that a lot of them feel like they went through several bear attacks to get them.

She said she hopes to provide more opportunities for us to all get together and sing these songs. I would like to thank you for wanting to be there. You don't know how much that matters.

Jack Antonoff, who has collaborated with Swift on many of her albums, including the recently released Midnights, got into his shit Friday when he criticized Ticketmaster in a number of thinly veiled sub-tweets.

Touring is an honest way to make a living. There is a person on the internet who is referred to as 'Antonoff.' The person is referred to as 'Antonoff.'

Activists claim that the company became a monopoly following its 2010 merger with LiveNation and that the company could be in violation of antitrust laws. According to the New York Times, the Department of Justice opened an antitrust investigation into the company. The DOJ wouldn't comment on the matter.

There is a daily reminder that the merger with LiveNation should not have been approved. Break them up.

The Live Nation/Ticketmaster merger harms consumers by creating a near-Monopoly, according to Sen. Richard Blumenthal.

Blumenthal urged the Department of Justice to investigate the state of competition in the ticketing industry. This anti-hero behavior is not good for consumers.

The senator wrote a letter to the head of Live Nation Entertainment expressing her concerns about the state of competition in the ticketing industry.

The power of the primary ticket market insulates it from the competitive pressures that often push companies to innovate and improve their services. The type of service failures we saw this week were caused by that.
