Taylor Swift’s pre-sale for her tour caused chaos in November.

The debacle surrounding the advance ticket sale for superstar Taylor Swift’s (33) US stadium tour even occupied the US Congress. At a public hearing by the Judiciary Committee on Tuesday, senators targeted concert ticket provider Ticketmaster. “They have a clear dominance, a monopolistic control.
