ATLANTA, Ga. — Fans of Taylor Swift in Atlanta had an opportunity to win free tickets for her upcoming concert.

The company announced via Twitter Friday that they had canceled all public sales for the tour after selling over 2,000,000 pre-sale tickets, the most tickets ever sold for an artist in a single day.

Channel 2 sister radio station, B98.5, helped fans get around the chaos by giving them a chance to win two free tickets in an on-air competition that ended Friday, Nov. 18.


The tour is scheduled to come to the Mercedes Benz Stadium for three nights in April 2023.

To win the tickets, fans had to be the 13th caller when the station plays Swift’s song, “Anti-Hero,” on the radio.

The giveaway ended Friday.
