The 2023 concert season has already created quite the buzz in the Keystone State. Take the Taylor Swift Eras Tour for example: when tickets went on sale last month, millions crowded the presale, resulting in site crashes, prolonged waits, and many disappointed fans walking away without the tickets they so desperately wanted.
Since then, several politicians have gotten involved, including US Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who directed Swifties to where they could make complaints with the U.S. Department of Justice, and Pennsylvania’s very own Attorney General Josh Shapiro. The governor-elect invited Swift fans to submit consumer complaints with his office, and on Dec. 13, tweeted that after working directly with Ticketmaster, those thousands of consumers will have a second opportunity to buy tickets this month.
But Taylor Swift is not the only concert Pennsylvanians have to look forward to next year. Tickets are already on sale for the following shows coming to Pennsylvania in 2023:
Luke Combs – Pittsburgh, April 23; Philadelphia, July 29
