Taylor Swift fans without tickets warned to stay home and avoid stadium shows to ‘soak up the atmosphere’ outside the venue

Swifties are set to fill Accor Stadium late next month when Taylor Swift flies into Sydney after her Melbourne concerts.

But organizers are more worried about the 15,000 fans who are estimated to arrive despite not having tickets to the pop star’s sold-out shows.

The NSW venue has warned ticket-less fanatics to stay away from the stadium to avoid crowd management problems, The Daily Telegraph reported on Sunday.

A spokesman said fans who missed out on tickets should not try to ‘soak up the atmosphere’ outside as they probably won’t hear any songs anyway.

Meanwhile, Transport NSW co-ordinator-general Howard Collins said the city would «prepare for the inevitable».

Swifties are set to pack the Accor Stadium late next month when Taylor Swift, 34 (pictured), flies into Sydney after concerts in Melbourne.

«What we’ve found with other popular music venues, where people can’t get tickets, people just come to soak up the atmosphere, and you can’t stop them other than managing the crowds,» he said.

«We are not encouraging fans without tickets to attend, but part of our contingency plan is to allow for additional people who may travel and do not have tickets.»

But despite warnings from the NSW Government, businesses are said to be extending the welcome mat to all Taylor fans regardless of whether they have tickets.

But organizers are more worried about the 15,000 fans who are expected to arrive despite not having tickets to the pop star’s sold-out concerts.

Business Sydney chief executive Paul Nicolaou said: ‘Regardless of their ticket status, Sydney needs to put up a welcome sign for Swifties as they all contribute to our city in some way.’

Fans desperate to buy tickets for Taylor’s Australian tour are being warned of a major scam after some lost thousands trying to attend the pop star’s concert.

The Scamwatch website, which is run by the ACCC to detect fraud, said 273 concertgoers have so far been conned into buying fake tickets for Taylor’s Era’s Tour in February.

The NSW venue has warned ticket-less fanatics to stay away from the stadium to avoid crowd management problems, The Daily Telegraph reported on Sunday.

The competition’s watchdog has estimated the Aussies have lost more than $135,000 to the scam so far, with that number expected to rise.

ACCC deputy chairwoman Catriona Lowe said fraudsters were using the «hottest ticket in town» to steal the hard-earned money of hundreds of Taylor fans.

«This scam is a low-level act trying to take advantage of fans, many of whom are young and desperate to get a ticket to fulfill their dream of seeing Taylor Swift live,» she said.

Taylor will perform in Melbourne on February 16, 17 and 18 at the Melbourne Cricket Ground and play four shows in Sydney on February 23, 24, 25 and 26 at Accor Stadium.
