Taylor Swift has unveiled her highly anticipated international tour dates for the “Eras Tour,” which is set to take place in 2024 across the UK, Europe, and Asia.
In the UK, the pop star will perform a total of nine shows, including concerts in Edinburgh, Liverpool, Cardiff, and London. There is also speculation that Swift will fill the headline slot at Glastonbury on its final night, a performance she missed in 2020 due to the pandemic.
The demand for tickets was so overwhelming that Ticketmaster’s systems were unable to handle the traffic, leaving thousands of fans unable to secure seats. This led to Ticketmaster facing scrutiny from US senators regarding their handling of the event.
To register interest for the UK dates, fans were instructed to visit Swift’s website, but many encountered long queues when attempting to do so after the announcement. Once registration closes, fans will receive a purchase link for tickets. The London dates will go on sale on July 18, followed by Edinburgh on July 19 and Cardiff on July 20.
Eras marks Swift’s first world tour since 2018, during which she has released four studio albums, including the critically acclaimed Folklore, which won multiple Grammy Awards.
Swift’s international fans have eagerly awaited news of the tour extension, and their reactions on social media have been ecstatic, especially from her devoted fanbase known as “Swifties.” The Asian leg of the tour will begin in Tokyo, where she will perform for four consecutive nights starting on February 7. She will then travel to Australia, spending two nights in Melbourne and three nights in Sydney.
The UK leg of the tour will commence at Murrayfield Stadium in Edinburgh on June 7 and conclude with two nights at Wembley Stadium in London in August. While there appears to be a scheduling conflict with Glastonbury’s first two nights, Swift has an available slot on June 23, which potentially positions her to close the festival with a headline performance on the Pyramid Stage.
