The Headliner is a podcast covering the latest news in live music performances, from roadside gigs to the biggest stadiums in the world. The first episode covers Ticketmaster’s mishandling of the pre-sale of Taylor Swift’s upcoming Eras Tour. Follow Johnny Lin as he sits down with guests to discuss the reactions from fans, how the fiasco exposes the incompetence of a monopoly, and what can be expected if the show comes to Toronto.
Tony Niu is a Toronto-based finance analyst. Like many other Toronto fans of Swift, he tried to score tickets to her American shows to no avail.
Peter Johnston is a music professor at Toronto Metropolitan University. He is also an independent musician who embarked on a small-scale tour over the summer.
