Eager Taylor Swift fans desperate for a ticket to her sold out Sydney shows will be counting their blessings after new tickets were announced 24 hours out from her next stadium gig.

Frontier Touring confirmed on X, formally known as Twitter, that final Sydney tickets would go on sale from 4pm on Thursday.

One fan said “if they don’t get tickets” they would cry.

Another said they had “never been happier” in their life after hearing the news more tickets were going to be made available.

Earlier, Swifties hoping with all their might that the superstar will announce extra tickets on Thursday, similar to how Melbourne fans got the chance to buy last minute tickets released by Ticketek last week.

Frontier Touring had made the shock announcement the day before the first Eras Tour concert in Melbourne.

It looks like history is repeating itself once more, with tickets on sale last minute for the Sydney shows at Accor Stadium.

Some fans had been holding their breath hoping more tickets would be released ahead of Taylor Swift’s first Sydney show.

Earlier, one fan told NCA NewsWire there were about 50 to 60 fans hoping to score tickets by lining up prematurely outside the Ticketek storefront in Penrith in the hopes of nabbing a new ticket before extra tickets were announced on Thursday.

Neither Ticketek or Frontier Touring have announced extra tickets will be released at the time of publication.

The sale for extra Melbourne tickets was first noticed by eagle-eyed fans who reported seeing something suspicious on the Ticketek website.

It wasn’t until 3pm on February 15 that Frontier announced the fresh tickets were on sale.

But for those still hoping they’ll be lucky enough to score a ticket, the long wait times are expected to continue on Ticketek Marketplace, the only authorised resale platform available for Taylor Swift tickets in Australia.

The last of the Aussie leg of the tour will run from February 23 to 26 before Taylor Swift jets to Singapore for her next round of concerts.
