Australian celebrities criticized for taking their young children to Taylor Swift concerts: ‘So many fans are missing out’

Taylor Swift’s concerts in Sydney were a true star-spotting extravaganza.

The likes of Rita Ora, Katy Perry, Rebel Wilson and Toni Collette were spotted among the crowds at Accor Stadium this weekend.

But the presence of famous faces and their children has upset some Taylor Swift fans.

Radio host Michael “Wippa” Wipfli, radio star Fifi Box and former The Project star Carrie Bickmore all shared footage of their young children falling asleep in their arms during the monster three-hour concerts , much to the chagrin of the Swifties.

Many were furious that tickets were given to the stars’ young children who couldn’t enjoy the entire show while fans missed out.

“Cute but all these little kids with tickets falling asleep are killing me!” one person wrote on Facebook.

“Hardest concert in the world to get tickets too and so many fans are missing so the kids can sleep, I bet if this was a 12+ event a lot more fans would be there “.

“I agree with you, there were people with tired children giving away their tickets for the last half of the concert when we were sitting outside listening. Lovely, kind people, they epitomize being a Swiftie,” said another.

“There were four of us next to each other, fast asleep for half the show in Melbourne. Take them home and put them to bed if they are not up to it,” they added.

“This is literally the reason why children under 10 should not be taken to concerts. I really think there should be an age limit for shows when they are sold out,” said another.

“So many people would have paid double to go or would have loved to attend, but so many families leave halfway with tired and emotional kids,” acknowledged another.

Others disagreed, with one saying: “If the parents pay, the kids deserve to be there.” Most fall asleep at the end and have enjoyed every moment before. Don’t you like it? Try harder to get one next time.

“The number of people who think that the children in attendance falling asleep is a waste of a ticket is beyond me. It’s always an experience of a lifetime for them,” said another.

“They will forever remember going to that concert with their mom/dad/friends…just because they’re little and fall asleep doesn’t mean it’s a waste.”

“Hardest concert in the world to get tickets too and so many fans are missing so the kids can sleep, I bet if it was a 12+ event then a lot more fans would be there,” a declared one of them.
