Tickets were released this past weekend for Atlanta, New Jersey, New York, Philadelphia, and Boston.

Fans all over anxiously waited as the clock turned precisely at the on-sale time tickets were to be released. However, Ticketmaster was not prepared for this. Fans were furious with Ticketmaster, especially because these tickets are in such high demand. Fans spoke up from around the country venting their feelings about Ticketmaster and about the upcoming tour. In order to guarantee tickets, fans were logged on to multiple computers, iPads, iPhones, cell phones, and even waited on lines at the box offices of the venues.

Ticketmaster has spoke out to the public and assured fans that there will be an investigation occurring shortly involving scalpers and the poor maintenance of the website.
