Mother of Sarah Pontillo permitted daughter to miss class to go to a Taylor Swift concert.
Ms. Pontillo, a junior in high school, was scheduled to attend her first two classes on Tuesday morning before being picked up by her mother
Ida Pearce, and brought home just in time to use Ticketmaster to get tickets for the "Anti-Hero" singer's Eras tour.
After obtaining the tickets, Ms. Pearce intended to send her daughter back to school right away.
Ms. Pontillo, 16, bought socks at a dollar store to convert into sock monkeys, which she sold to her classmates in order to raise money for tickets after it was reported earlier this year that Ms. Swift would be announcing a tour.
The tickets are not as close to the stage as those Ms. Pontillo had initially hoped to purchase
but after hearing about the experiences of Swifties — as Ms. Swift’s fans are known — around the world on Tuesday
To even attempt to get presale tickets on Tuesday, fans had to have registered with Ticketmaster earlier in the month to receive a “Verified Fan” designation.
