With apologies to George Lucas, you could maybe title this one "Scalper Wars, Episode IV: A New Hope."
Taylor Swift's handlers are finally giving fans a hand in fighting the evil resale empire by putting new seats to her June 14 and 15 shows on sale Friday at 5 p.m. through Ticketmaster. The space became available after the production of her tour (i.e., stage layout) was finalized. No word on exactly how many and what type of seats will be made available -- the Xcel Energy Center press release simply describes them as "great seats" -- but usually these sort of late "ticket drops" involve at least a few hundred seats in sections located to the side of or behind the stage and fall in the original price range of seats ($27-$71.50 in this case). Tickets to the shows originally sold out as fast as it took many parents and fans to log onto Ticketmaster.com. May the Force be with you this time.
