A die-hard Taylor Swift fan who paid $5,500 for a resale ticket has now revealed that she regrets it.
Paige, 31, has been a hardcore Swiftie now for over 15 years and was eager to get her hands on some golden tickets for the singer's highly-anticipated Eras tour.
However, since forking out a small fortune for the goods, it's clear that this fan has had some second thoughts about the hefty purchase.
With more than 2,000 people ahead of her, even in the pre-sale queue, Paige began to realize that she would have to get creative to secure the tickets to see Taylor finally perform live.
The woman waited anxiously for more than three hours in the hopes that she would finally be let in to the portal and be able to buy the tickets but soon decided to check out reselling platform to nab them elsewhere.
Paige checked out StubHub and discovered that the tickets she was still queueing for were already being resold.
According to the fan, prices ranged from $5,000 to more than $30,000.
After seeing two floor seats priced under just $2,000 each, Paige acted fast and copped the goods which ended up totalling to more than $5,500 with fees and tax added on.
But, it's for certain that she now deeply regrets the impulsive move.
"I don't feel good to have tickets anymore," she told Insider.
"It wasn't something fun, like it was supposed to be. I feel guilty. I feel like I did something impulsive in panic mode, and I am disappointed in Ticketmaster and Live Nation for letting it get to this point of just being a complete frenzy."
Paige continued: "Once I realized how many people were impacted by this and how I fed into what resellers do, which is prey on people who are in that panic mode, it didn't feel good anymore."
The fan revealed that she felt 'guilty' and 'nauseous' for spending 'that much' cash on the tickets.
"It's awful that people with credit cards and wealth, or luck, were the only ones who are able to go to Taylor's show now," Paige stated.
The whole ordeal was so traumatic for the Swiftie that she now doesn't even know if she wants to attend the concert anymore.
She said: "I feel like it's a dirty ticket. Like in the same way getting something in the wrong way would feel bad, it's the same with this."
Paige added that she is deeply 'embarrassed' that she got carried away and bought the tickets at the extortionate price.
"I regret it, and I kind of just wish I had a nosebleed ticket — because I just don't feel like giving in in this way to the resellers was the answer," she concluded.
