Furious Swifties call for concert rule change after Aussie celebrities posted tone-deaf selfies with their kids: This is why fans are so upset – Worse part is the children were sleeping…

Taylor Swift Sydney Concert

 

Taylor Swift’s Sydney shows have been a star-spotting extravaganza, with the likes of Rita Ora, Katy Perry, Rebel Wilson and Toni Collette seen among the crowds at Accor Stadium this weekend.

But the presence of celebrities and their children has upset some Swifties, who argue it’s not fair to bring along kids who are too young to appreciate the concert environment – and that by doing so they are depriving real fans of tickets.

Michael ‘Wippa’ Wipfli, Fifi Box and Carrie Bickmore all shared photos on social media of their young children falling asleep in their arms during the three-hour performance of The Eras Tour – much to the chagrin of diehard Taylor fans.

Many complained about tickets going to the small children of A-listers who could not enjoy the full show – which ended at about 11.15pm – while proper fans missed out.

Some even went so far as to say Swift concerts should be restricted to people over the age of 12.

‘Cute but all these little kids with tickets and falling asleep kills me!’ one person wrote on Facebook.

‘The hardest concert in the world to get tickets to and so many fans missing out for kids to sleep through it. I bet if this was an over-12 event then many more fans would be there.’

‘I agree with you, there were people with tired kids giving [away] their tickets to the last half of the concert when we sat outside to listen. Lovely and kind people, they embody being a Swiftie,’ said another.

‘We had four next to us fast asleep for half the show in Melbourne. Take them home and put them in bed if they are not up to it,’ they added.

‘Literally [this is] why kids under 10 should not be taken to concerts. I really think there should be an age limit on shows when they are that sold out,’ said another.

‘So many people would have paid double to go or would have liked to have attended but so many families leave half way through with tired and emotional children,’ one more agreed.

Others disagreed, with one person saying that those who missed out would simply have to try harder to secure tickets next time.

‘If the parent pays, the kids deserve to be there. Most fall asleep at the end and have enjoyed every bit prior. Don’t like it? Try harder to get tix next time,’ one wrote.

‘The amount of people who think children in attendance falling asleep is a waste of a ticket is beyond me. It’s still an experience of a lifetime for them,’ another said.

‘They’ll remember going to this concert with their mom/dad/friends forever… just because they’re little and fall asleep doesn’t mean it’s wasteful’.

More than 600,000 people have attended the Australian leg of Swift’s Eras tour – with a record-breaking 96,000 fans attending each of her three nights in Melbourne and a further 83,000 Swifties at each of her four shows in Sydney.
