Millions of Taylor Swift fans brought the Ticketmaster website to crawl on Tuesday. It was so slow many thought the site has crashed.

Ticketmaster says the site did not crash, but, "There has been unprecedented demand for the TaylorSwiftTix Presale."

Swift's "Eras" tour has 52 dates, with more possible. It is the singer's largest tour, and includes three dates at MetLife Stadium: May 26, 27 and 28.

In response to the huge demand, Ticketmaster says they will extend their presales.

If you are able to get into the que, "hang tight," says Ticketmaster, which also thanked customer for their "patience as we continue managing this huge demand."

Only fans with a presale code are eligible to buy presale tickets. Ticketmaster says those with a code should used the link they received with the code, and not try to enter through the main Ticketmaster website. "This will ensure an optimal shopping experience," the company claims.

Getting into the que and getting the opportunity to buy tickets is only the first hurdle. Affording them is the other.

Prices were promoted as starting at $49 to $450. VIP packages are promoted for between $199 and $899.

However, much as New Jersey saw when tickets for Bruce Springsteen went on sale, demand is pushing prices much higher. Lower priced tickets may not be available at all, and other tickets are rising into the thousands of dollars.

Swift already owns the record for gross ticket sales in North America. The "Eras" tour is likely to shatter that record as it comes right after the release of her record-breaking new album "Midnights."

The "Eras" tour kicks off in the U.S at Glendale, Arizona, on March 18 and is scheduled to end August 5 in Los Angeles.
