Taylor Swift adds second Philadelphia show

Tickets for this new show will go on sale to the general public January 31 at 10 a.m.

The singer will now be performing at the Patriots' home field on July 26, 27, and 28 as part of a worldwide tour in support of her new album, "Reputation".

The Taylor Swift "reputation" stadium tour kicks off on May 8 in Arizona and this will be Swift's fifth and sixth time performing at Lincoln Financial Field, where she made her debut in August 2011.

But that doesn't appear to be slowing sales, as her stop in Philly this summer will feature a second performance due to "overwhelming demand".

The New York Post reports that sales across the world have not being going well - and its citing the massive mark-up on tickets as the primary reason.

Fact of the matter is this: old Taylor, who sold tickets for her concerts at $60 a pop, can't come to the phone right now.

The Post reported that Swift's upcoming tour is turning out to be a "disaster", thanks to high-priced tickets and controversial ticketing methods. Citing sources close to the singer, Billboard reported this week that Swift sold almost $180 million worth in tickets in the first week. There are still hundreds if not thousands of tickets left for every show, despite seats having been available to the public since the Swift's birthday on December 13.

Under the revised sales strategy, Swift and her team will get more of the money spent on the show, with fans not having to buy them through scalpers. After all, her most recent 1989 tour was completely sold out in minutes in 2015.

"Sales so far have been a mega disappointment", one music industry insider told The Post.
