Taylor Swift confirmed her long-rumored return to the road on Tuesday morning, with the “Eras Tour” due to begin in March 2023 and run through August 2023, with foreign dates to be announced later.
The support acts are all about sisterhood, with a slew of musicians Swift has previously backed. The tour’s opening artists include Paramore, Haim, Phoebe Bridgers, Beabadoobee, Girl in Red, Muna, Gayle, Gracie Abrams, and Owen.
The tour kicks out on March 18, 2023, at what appears to be a nice spot for Swift, Glendale, AZ, where her previous expedition, the pre-pandemic “Reputation” tour, began in 2018.
The North American leg concludes four and a half months later on Aug. 4-5, with two nights at L.A.’s SoFi Stadium — the facility she was slated to launch as a music venue in 2020 with the canceled “Lover Fest” mini-tour. Scroll down to discover all 20 cities Swift will visit on her 27-date tour.
Since she has released four original studio albums since her last tour, whose album can we consider the tour to be supporting? They’re all of them. Swift characterized the tour as “a journey through the musical eras of my career (past and present!)” and included a graphic depicting her appearance throughout her career.
See the complete itinerary, along with color-coded visuals indicating which of the nine opening acts performed in which cities:
The general public goes on sale on November 18 at 10 a.m. local time. As with all large tours nowadays, tickets will be available sooner for credit card members, in this case, Capital One cardholders, beginning Nov. 15 at 10 a.m. local time.
As with her previous tour, a Ticketmaster Verified Fan program would be implemented “to ensure tickets get into the hands of fans.” Interested ticket buyers can register for the setup here now through November 9th.
Taylor Swift has publicized the cost of her tickets in advance, which is unusual in the present era of variably priced “platinum tickets” when fans get little knowledge about established ticket costs.
They range in price from $49 to $449, with VIP packages starting at $199 and going up to $899.
Taylor Swift’s release promised that international dates would be announced soon.
Taylor Swift is due to represent the modern era on tour, as much as fans may enjoy the concept of a somewhat nostalgically themed outing embracing the entirety of her career.
Since her last tour, she has released “Lover,” “Folklore,” “Evermore,” and now “Midnights,” as well as bonus-track-assisted re-recordings of the “Red” and “Fearless” albums, either of which would have been reason enough for its tour in an era before the entire concert scene had to pause.
The tour announcement was detailed down to the visuals representing the opening acts at various points along the tour route, with Bridgers, for example, represented as a little ghost, in commemoration of the skeleton costume she’s worn on her headlining tours.
Not by chance, the identical design divides the tour itinerary into two columns of 13 dates each. There will be 27 performances in 20 cities.
Los Angeles, Atlanta, Philadelphia, Chicago, Arlington, TX, Foxborough, MA, and East Rutherford, NJ is among the cities that will host a two-night stand.
The reaction to “Midnights” when it was released in October left little doubt about how intense the demand for Swift tickets will be.
According to Luminate this week, had the biggest week since Adele’s “25” album, with 1,578,000 album-equivalent units.
Furthermore, for the first time in history, a single artist’s songs occupied all ten top positions on the Billboard Hot 100, with “Anti-Hero” leading the way at No. 1.
Fans, in any case, wanted the complete album — of the approximately 1.6 million album units reported for “Midnights,” 1,140,000 were full-album purchases.
Swift’s sixth album to sell a million or more copies in its first week, out of her ten original studio recordings. The figure was also the biggest first-week sales for an album by any act since “Reputation” debuted with 1,216,000.
Taylor Swift Touring is producing the “Eras Tour,” which is being promoted by the Messina Touring Group.
The tour’s supporting acts showed their support in their unique ways, such as Muna’s tweet declaring the group “gay for Tay” and depicting the trio in miniature, lying on Swift’s lighter on the “Midnights” album cover.
