20,000 Taylor Swift fans who didn't get tickets to The Eras Tour still went to her show in Philadelphia in the most iconic way.

There are two types of Swifties in the world: Those who managed to get tickets to The Eras Tour and those who didn't. While more than 2.4 million tickets were sold in The Eras Tour presale, Ticketmaster crashed and millions of Taylor Swift fans were left without tickets. As a result, many fans have had to accept that they will never get to witness The Eras Tour in person.

Nevertheless, Swifties have now come up with a solution to not getting tickets to see her perform and it's honestly inspired.

You know what they say. Whenever there's a will, there's a Swiftie! Fans have realised that, just because you cannot see The Eras Tour in person, doesn't mean you cannot hear it in person. As a result, thousands of Swifities are now showing up at each of her tour stops and listening and singing along to every word of the show from outside of the stadium.

This weekend (May 13), over 20,000 Taylor Swift fans who didn't get tickets to her Phildelphia tour dates, travelled to the stadium and were filmed getting their lives to the show outside of Lincoln Financial Field stadium. In a viral TikTok video posted by @mattymerch you can see thousands of fans shouting '22' at the top of their lungs.

In the comments, one person wrote: "it’s actually hard to wrap my mind around how big taylor is. generations from now, there will be kids who wished they could’ve seen her. it’s wild." Another person also wrote: "She’s not just selling out stadiums. She’s selling out the surrounding streets! Love it."

Someone even suggested: "taylor just needs to have her own festival at this point". We need Lover Fest!

What do you think? Did you get tickets to see Taylor?
