A Bay Area couple showed up to Taylor Swift's Saturday show at Levi's Stadium only to realize they had tickets for Friday.

SANTA CLARA, Calif. (KGO) -- A Bay Area couple missed out on Taylor Swift's The Eras Tour shows in Santa Clara last week after mixing up the dates.

Oakland resident Bear Silber told ABC7 News how he showed up to the Saturday show at Levi's Stadium, only to realize that he had purchased Friday tickets.

"I knew tickets were legitimate, I actually purchased them through Ticketmaster, so I didn't have an excuse about whether it was a scam or not. I looked at my phone and that's when I saw Friday, 'ohhh this is not gonna be a fun night,'" Silber said.

Despite the mixup, Silber explained how he tried to make it right for his wife.

"And I was thinking about it and I was like you know what, for the rest of my life, or at least our marriage, depending how long that is, I'm going to have to live with this," Silber said. "I couldn't have the guilt of that."

Silber ended up shelling out around $2,600 for tickets for one of Swift's shows in Los Angeles this week. But, because of work, he can't be there.

"I can't go but one of her best friends is going with her in LA," Silber said.
