‘Swifties’ arrive in Atlanta for concert disheartened after being scammed by ticket seller

ATLANTA — Early Saturday evening parades of ‘Swifties’ could be seen making their way towards Mercedes Benz Stadium.

But in this group of best friends who are also ‘Swifties’ two of them are all dressed up with nowhere to go.

“They said the seller must be a scam because they tried caller her, emailing her, texting her and she would not respond,” parent Angie Aycock said.

She’s referring to a ticket seller on Stubhub who never delivered the concert tickets they reserved.

That meant no tickets for 15-year-old Curtlynn Bridgers and Ava Cate Aycock.

They say the site offered to find them replacement tickets but that fell through too at the last minute on Saturday.


“It’s really sad because we looked forward to this since we found out she was going on tour,” Curtlynn Bridgers said.

The friends traveled across states lines with their parents all the way from Hickory, North Carolina.

They had been looking forward to singing along with Swift to Lyrics in High Infidelity, especially the part that goes, “Do you really want to know where I was April 29.”

“I think it’s really cool that we’re here on the 29th and she has a song that states that. I think we were really excited about hearing that in person,” Ava Cate Aycock said.

Instead, they’re left to hoping just being outside can give them some of that excitement.

“We’re here with six girls, four of our girl’s best friends that we brought with them. They all have tickets and they’ll be going in. and our girls will be watching the parade outside,” parent Andrea Bridgers said.
