An investigation into the botched presale of Taylor Swift tickets by Ticketmaster is being looked into by the The Justice Department. 

The New York Times reports the DOJ is opening an antitrust investigation into whether Live Nation Entertainment abused its power over the live music industry. 

This comes after Ticketmaster's systems crashed while Swift fans were trying to purchase tickets in a presale for her upcoming tour. 

Although, the investigation reportedly predates the botched pre-sale. 

Live Nation is the owner of Ticketmaster. In a previous statement, Swift said she was assured this issue wouldn't happen when she raised concerns about the ability to handle the demand.
