(NewsNation) — It’s not a love story between Taylor Swift fans and Ticketmaster after the ticket seller’s website crashed during pre-sales for the singer’s upcoming tour. The outage is also sparking a bigger conversation about monopolies.

Swifties who entered a lottery for pre-sale tickets for Swift’s 2023 tour reported the site freezing and crashing. Ticketmaster said the technical issues were a result of “unprecedented demand.”
