Taylor Swift's concerts in L.A. begin August 3 at SoFi Stadium at 6:30 p.m.


Yes! Tickets were infamously first sold on Ticketmaster, which had its site crash when the tickets first dropped. On Ticketmaster, the concerts are all sold out. However, you can still buy tickets on second-hand sites such as StubHub, where tickets start at $770 a piece and go up to more than $6,000.


The opening act takes the stage at 6:30 p.m., and then Taylor Swift reportedly starts promptly at 8 p.m. Fans will likely arrive much earlier to tailgate, which is allowed only in designated areas. Pre-purchased parking at SoFi Stadium opens at 12 p.m.


Metro is adding late-night services and free shuttle rides for the Eras Tour. Services have been extended to 2 a.m., and free shuttles will be available from the downtown Inglewood K Line stop and the Hawthorne/Lennox C Line stop.

Shuttles will run between 3:30 p.m. and 6:30 p.m. and for 90 minutes after the end of each of Swift's performances.

If you plan on driving to the stadium, make sure to check the Eyewitness News traffic map for the latest updates.

Fans are advised to purchase parking ahead of time. SoFi Stadium has parking available at lots near the stadium, but some of them are already sold out.

Prices for parking around SoFi Stadium can range from $35 to $250, but if you are looking for a more affordable option, the Metro has parking available for as low as $3 at stops along the C and K lines.
