Taylor Swift Buenos Aires Show: At the River Plate’s Mas Monumental Stadium, Taylor Swift’s inaugural show attracted over 70,000 attendees, but it wasn’t without its share of incidents.
Local authorities in Buenos Aires reported that confrontations between fans and wrongdoers led to the detention of up to 60 individuals, with five arrests related to the sale of fake tickets, scalping, and touting.
Collaborating with the Judicial Investigations Body of the Public Prosecutors Office and Traffic Agents of the Secretariat of Transport, the City Police executed a special operation to safeguard the public and curb irregularities.
Specifically, police sources identified 60 individuals engaging in illicit activities near the intersections of Monroe and Figueroa Alcorta and Campos Salles and Libertador. All were apprehended for various offenses, including several ‘trapitos’individuals who charge for ‘protecting’ parked cars on public streets.
According to reports, at least three young people attempting to enter the stadium without tickets or with counterfeit credentials were notable incidents.
During their rounds, officers seized six counterfeit wristbands and a fake media credential from the event. In one instance, a 28-year-old Peruvian ticket tout was found with five concert tickets, US$200, and 203,000 pesos during a search.
Additionally, officers identified a man who had overcharged a group of girls by 120,000 pesos to assist them in entering the concert through a staff member. Consequently, he was arrested and brought to court.
