Taylor Swift On Tuesday morning he announced his long-rumored return, an outing “Eras Tour” is slated to hit U.S. stadiums beginning in March 2023 through August, with international dates to be announced later.
As with many of Swift’s successful acts in the past, the support act is all about sisterhood. Opening acts for US tour ParamoreHaim, Phoebe BridgersBeabadoobee, The Girl in Red, Moona, Gayle, Gracie Abrams and Owen.
The tour kicks off on March 18, 2023, which sounds like a sweet spot for Swift in Glendale, AZ, where her last outing, the pre-pandemic “Fame” tour, kicked off in 2018.
The US leg concludes four and a half months later with two nights Aug. 4-5 at L.A.’s SoFi Stadium — the concert venue he was set to kick off with the canceled “Lover Fest” mini-tour in 2020. Scroll through to see all 20 cities where Swift will be hitting 27 dates.
Since he’s released four original studio albums since his last tour, which album can we assume we’re rooting for? They are all. Swift described the tour as “a journey through the musical eras of my career (past and present!)” with a graphic showing her looks from various stages of her career.
Check out the full itinerary with color-coded graphics indicating which of the nine opening acts have gigs in which cities:
The public sale will take place on November 18 at 10 am local time. As with all major tours these days, tickets for credit card members will be released earlier, in this case Capital One cardholders from November 15th at 10am local time.
As with his previous tour, there will be a Ticketmaster Verified Fan program to “ensure tickets get into the hands of fans.” Interested ticket buyers can register for the system now through November 9 Here.
Unlike the modern age of “platinum tickets” at varying prices where fans receive little information about ticket pricing, Swift announced the price of her tickets in advance. They run from $49 to $449, with VIP packages starting at $199 and going up to $899.
Swift’s announcement promised that international dates would follow.
Of all her “eras,” Swift really represents the modern on tour, as fans might like the idea of a somewhat nostalgic-themed outing that covers the entire spectrum of her career. Since he was last on the road, he’s released “Lover,” “Folklore,” “Evermore” and now “Midnights,” along with bonus-track-aided re-recordings of the albums “Red” and “Fearless” in an era before any full concert scene was suspended. It would have been occasion enough to inspire a tour of its own.
In the tour announcement, even the graphics focused on marking the opening acts at different points on the tour, Bridgers, for example, represented by a small ghost, in honor of the skeleton costume she used to own. Topic tours.
Not coincidentally, perhaps, the same graphic breaks the tour’s itinerary into two columns of 13 dates each. 27 shows will be held in 20 cities. Two-night stands available in Los Angeles, Atlanta, Philadelphia, Chicago, Arlington, TX, Foxborough, MA and East Rutherford, NJ.
The reception to “Midnights” at the October release leaves no doubt as to how strong the appetite for Swift tickets will be. It had the biggest week since Adele’s “25” album this week with 1,578,000 album-equivalent units per Luminate. Also, for the first time in history, it was announced on Monday. All of the top 10 spots on the Billboard Hot 100 were filled with songs by an artist, “Anti-Hero” is number one. Fans wanted the full album, anyway — of the nearly 1.6 million album units recorded for “Midnights,” 1,140,000 copies were purchased in full album form. Out of her 10 original studio releases, it became Swift’s fifth album to sell more than one million copies in its first week. The figure represented the best first-week sales for an album by any artist since “Reputation” came out with 1,216,000.
“Eras Tour” is produced locally by Taylor Swift Touring and promoted by Messina Touring Group.
The tour’s opening acts showed their excitement in their own ways, with Moonah’s tweet declaring the group “Gay for Day” and a miniature shot of the trio resting on top of Swift’s lighter on the “Midnights” album cover.
