Oddly, this has never happened to me for Doobie tickets. But, it’s true: a local family ended paying a whopping $21,000 for a Taylor Swift ticket mishap.

The force of nature, Taylor Swift blew into Gillette last night for the first of three New England shows. Taylor has captured so much love over the years, brides maids of honor blow off their best friend, the BRIDE, if the wedding was scheduled the same day as Taylor. It’s not just a concert, it’s an event, comparable to the Beatles on Ed Sullivan. No, I was not there. But I can promise you this: No Father has ever paid $21,000 for John Paul, George and Ringo.

According to WCVB, a local dad had numerous ticket issues with Stub Hub. The last resort, he had to drop a WHOPPING $21,000 for four tickets, to make sure his daughter and her friends, saw their version of the Beatles.

From Channel 5:

Anthony Silva said he originally purchased tickets in November through online ticket reseller StubHub. The cost, $1,800 and gave them to his daughter as a Christmas gift.

He said the tickets were never delivered, and after he contacted StubHub, Silva said the company informed him that alternative tickets were not available.

“This is just not right,” he said. “In my opinion, they should not wait until the day before for the tickets to be sent out by the re-seller.”

Silva said he switched to a different ticket re-seller and spent nearly $21,000 on four tickets.
