Taylor Swift has touched down in Buenos Aires ahead of the South American leg of her Eras Tour that kicks off Thursday.
Super fans of the pop sensation have been camping out for five months in anticipation of the star bringing her Eras Tour to Buenos Aires – telling DailyMail.com that they want to be first in line to see her.
Dozens of ‘Swifties’ have been sleeping in small tents outside of the Estadio River Plate Stadium in Argentina in a bid to get the first glimpse of the star on stage in two months.
It will be the first time that Taylor, 33, has ever played in South America, restarting the Eras Tour in Argentina for three nights, before travelling to Brazil.
But rising ticket prices in the US has seen fans from across the US making the trip to South America to watch the pop star – leaving locals concerned they might be pushed to the back of the line.
Lucia Visnevetsky, 19, is one of around 45 people taking turns spending the night in a small two-person tent outside the tour venue.
We want to make sure that we are the first ones that get to see her,’ the student told DailyMail.com. ‘Our group has been taking turns staying in the tent so we are at the very front of the line.
‘We know that there will be huge amounts of people here, and VIP tickets get earlier entry, but it’s a very special time for her to come here.
‘She has never performed here, it is the first time in 15 years, and we want to make sure that we get the best view that we can.’
Visnevetsky and her friends – from Argentina, Puerto Rico and Venezuela – paid $180USD for a ticket, with the average take home income for Argentinians per month coming in at $200.
She added: ‘It’s very expensive here to get the tickets, and most people got them through the resale. Some of them got scammed and lost their money. It’s made a difficult situation even harder.
‘Taylor is the biggest star in the world right now and in Argentina. Only below Messi, everyone is wanting to see her.
‘We know that tourists will be coming here too, as it’s cheaper, which is why we have been camping out for months.’
The group has been purchasing snacks from nearby gas stations and getting food delivered to them while ensuring their place in the line.
