Taylor Swift tickets at the Tampa Bay Times Forum sell out in three hours

Published Nov. 16, 2012

You've got to get up pretty early in the morning to topple Taylor Swift's fans.

Tickets to the singer-songwriter's April 20 show at the Tampa Bay Times Forum went onsale at 10 a.m. Friday. Within three hours, the show was sold out. Already, the cheapest tickets are selling for $104 and up on Razorgator and $113 and up on StubHub.

Don't lose hope just yet, though. According to her website, Swift is coming to Orlando on April 11 and/or 12, presumably at the Amway Center. The venue has not yet confirmed those dates -- and Taylor's own website is unclear about whether she'll be doing two shows or just one -- but either way, tickets have not yet gone on sale. So there's still time! (This also makes us wonder whether Swift might consider adding a second show in Tampa. Hmmm...)

In case you're wondering, there are still tickets available to this year's Jingle Ball at the Forum, starring Justin Bieber. Does this mean Taylor fans have surpassed Beliebers as the hardest of the hardcore?
