Taylor Swift’s Movie News Leads to App Confusion as Fans Rush for Tickets.

Swifties’ enthusiastic support for Taylor Swift caused an unexpected disruption to an app.

After the surprise announcement that Taylor Swift’s Eras Tour concert would be transformed into a movie, her fans rushed to the AMC app to purchase tickets, resulting in the app crashing. According to Collider, the app displayed a message stating that online reservations were temporarily unavailable due to the high number of visitors. It recommended that those looking to buy tickets visit their local AMC Theatre in person.

Billboard has contacted AMC for further details. The Hollywood Reporter quoted AMC earlier in the day as saying, “AMC is also aware that no ticketing system in history seems to have been able to handle the overwhelming demand from Taylor Swift fans when tickets are first released. Guests who want to be the first to buy tickets online may experience delays, longer-than-usual waiting times, and possible outages. AMC is committed to addressing any delays or outages as quickly as possible.”

According to a press release, starting from October 13, every U.S. AMC Theatre location will screen the movie at least four times daily on Thursday, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. Ticket prices will be $19.89 plus tax for adults and $13.13 plus tax for children and seniors (except for AMC’s premium large-format screens). The film will be available in AMC theaters in the U.S., Canada, and Mexico.

Taylor Swift herself also shared a trailer for the film, expressing her excitement: “The Eras Tour has been the most meaningful and electrifying experience of my life so far. I’m thrilled to announce that it will be hitting the big screen soon. Starting on October 13th, you can catch the concert film in theaters across North America. Tickets are available for purchase now.”
