The frustrated fan took to TikTok as she struggled to see the singer during her first live gig of the iconic Eras Tour at Wembley Stadium on Friday night.

‘Wembley section 123 has an obstructed view of 100% of the diamond stage’, before claiming ‘(ticket was sold as a VIP unobstructed seat).’

She continued ], disappointed: ‘AXS sold this obstructed ticket for £700.’

The user added nevertheless it was a ‘brilliant night’ thanks to Taylor, but wasn’t happy with her purchase as it seemed very overpriced for the view.

‘Wembley Stadium were no help either,’ the fan added.

Some other people raced to comment below the clip, with some sharing their own fears for their seats for other upcoming Wembley gigs.

‘This is super upsetting. I’m in 144 row 5 and it’s going to be almost completely obstructed,’ wrote one.

‘I saw you said row 7, What seat were you? Thanks – hope you still had a great time,’ said another one as other users continued.

‘i’m section 122 row 10 for august :// it really sucks that the tickets weren’t advertised as obstructed view’; ‘I’m going today in the same section 123 row 6 and it’s so disappointing to have it as an obstructed view’; ‘Oh no I’m 123 row 8 for august how upsetting’.

The pop icon sent fans in a frenzy when she graced the stage with five surprise songs for her first London gig.

Over 90,000 Swifties packed into Wembley Stadium to see the American superstar, 34, give her all in the first of her three performances in England’s capital.

And fans received quite the treat when she performed five songs in two unexpected mashups during the ‘surprise segment’ of the show.

Taylor performed a guitar mashup of Hits Different and Death By A Thousand Cuts.

She then graced her piano and performed a three-way mashup of The Black Dog into Come Back Be Here before rounding off her melody with Maroon.

The songstress had not performed The Black Dog prior to Friday and admitted to her stadium of fans that she was nervous.

The blonde beauty said: ‘I have never played this song live before so pray to God.’

Her recent mashup was fitting for her London audience because the song Come Back Be here from her album Red is a nod to her London life as she name drops the capital in her lyrics.

London is the only city that she will return to twice during her Era Tours. She will later return to the venue for another five shows in August, which will serve as the conclusion of the European leg of the tour.

Elsewhere during her performance on Friday, she branded London the ‘most exhilarating city in the world’ amid a huge crowd of her fans.

Her performance also comes after split from Joe Alwyn.

Addressing her fans, Taylor is heard saying: ‘There are eighty-eight thousand four hundred and forty-six people in this stadium.

‘Thank you from the bottom of my heart. I’m thinking about how beautiful you are and just how wonderful it is thinking about the way you can spend your time in the most exhilarating city of the world.’

Before her romance with her footballer boyfriend Travis Kelce, Taylor dated actor Joe Alwyn from 2016 to 2023.

They kept their romance away from the public eye, but in typical Taylor fashion she occasionally referenced Joe in her music, despite them reportedly splitting amicably.

‘Busy schedules and differing priorities’ were the reasons given when they parted ways.

But now Taylor has showed the world she can both tour the world as one of the biggest popstars in the globe and manage a blossoming love life as her and Travis have before the world’s most adored couple.

In a bid to keep the spark alive between the two during her busy schedule, she has reportedly coughed up for a £15,000 a week Cotswolds retreat during her London concerts.

Taylor, who is being supported by her footballer boyfriend Travis while in the UK, is believed to be residing in a luxury farmhouse estate, according to The Sun.

She is said to be a stones throw away form some the UK’s biggest celebrities including Posh and Becks, Simon Cowell and Amanda Holden.

The swanky property, which is near Chipping Norton, reportedly comes with its own sizeable swimming pool and extravagant tennis court.

A source told the publication: ‘Off stage, Taylor is very low key and likes her home comforts.

‘She has rented a lovely place in the Cotswolds for some downtime.’

MailOnline has contacted Taylor’s representatives for a comment.

Travis allegedly landed in the UK on Thursday to support the singer in time her first night of her London tour stint.

The Kelce family touched down in London for Taylor’s Eras Tour concert in London, as Travis was joined by his brother Jason, his sister-in-law Kylie and his dad, Ed, at Wembley.

Taylor will to perform this Friday, Saturday and Sunday at the ‘Home of English Soccer’ as part three consecutive concerts before jetting across the Irish Sea.

Travis, 34, showed up in a relaxing fit, sporting a white, Team USA Olympics cap and black polo, which matched the color of his shorts. He shook hands with Scott Swift – Taylor’s dad – upon his arrival at the sold-out show.

And so did Jason, who was closely followed by Kylie, in jeans and a dark lumberjack button down shirt.

He was seen dishing out some of Taylor’s tour-made friendship bracelets before the concert, as ‘Swifties’ were quick to snatch some off his hands.
