The long-awaited outing of “Eras Tour,” which Taylor Swift announced on Tuesday morning, will hit American stadiums starting in March 2023 and continue until August. International dates will be announced later.
The support performances are largely all about the sisterhood, with a host of performances Swift championed earlier. Paramore, Haim, Phoebe Bridgers, Girl in Red, Muna, Beabadoobee, Gayle, Gracie Abrams, and Owenn are the opening acts for the U.S. legs of the tour.
The tour kicks out on March 18, 2023, in Glendale, Arizona, which is Swift’s sweet spot. This is also where her most recent outing, the “Reputation” tour just before the pandemic, started in 2018.
The U.S. leg will wrap up four and half months later including two nights at L.A.’s SoFi Stadium Aug.4-5- the spot she was expected to launch as a concert venue in 2020 with the aborted “Lover Fest” mini-tour. Check out the list of the 20 cities that Swift will tour over the course of 27 dates.
As for which album, we could guess the tour would be supporting since she has released four unique studio albums since her latest tour—all of them. Swift defined the tour as “a journey through the musical eras of my career (past and present!),” with an image showing her appearance from different periods of her career.
Look at the complete itinerary, with color-coded visuals representing which of the nine opening acts got the performances in which cities:
The public on-sale begins at 10 a.m. November 18, local time As is standard practice for major tours, Credit cardholders will have early access to tickets than everyone else starting November 15 at 2 p.m. till November 17 at 10:00 p.m. time zones.
Like her previous tour, a Ticketmaster Verified Fan program will be in place “to ensure tickets get into the hands of fans,” and hopeful ticket buyers can register for the scheme now through November 9 here.
Swift has revealed the price of her tickets well in advance, which is unusual in this modern period of variable-priced “platinum tickets” when fans receive minimal information regarding fixed ticket costs. They range from $49 to $449, and VIP packages start at $199 and go as higher as $899.
Swift’s announcement has included a promise of upcoming international dates.
Out of all her “Eras,” Swift is truly required to represent the new era on tour, the prospect of an outing with a slightly nostalgic vibe may excite supporters covering the full spectrum of her career. Since she last hit the road, she has released the albums “Lover,” “Folklore,” “Evermore,” and now “Midnights,” along with bonus-track-assisted re-recordings of the “Red” and “Fearless” albums. Any one of these albums would have been reason enough to inspire its tour in an era before the concert episode necessarily hit a pause.
Even the graphics signifies the acts at different spots in the tour routing, pointing out the attention to detail in the tour announcement. Bridgers, for example, was represented by a tiny ghost in recognition of the skeleton costume she had worn on her own headlining tours.
It is not an accident; probably, this is how that same graphic breaks the tour journey into two columns of 13 dates each. In 20 cities, there will be a total of 27 acts. Arlington, Texas; Foxborough, Massachusetts; and East Rutherford, New Jersey, are among the cities receiving a two-night event, in addition to Los Angeles, Atlanta, Philadelphia, and Chicago.
According to the response to “Midnights” when it was released last October, Swift upcoming shows will be in high demand. With 1,578,000 album-equivalent units, Luminate reported that it had its best week since Adele’s “25” album this week. Moreover, it was revealed on Monday that for the first time ever, a single artist’s songs took up all ten of the high spots on the Billboard Hot 100, with “Anti-Hero” taking the lead at No. 1. Fans, anyway, desired the full album, as seen by the 1,140,000 copies of “Midnights” that were purchased as the full album, out of the approximately 1.6 million album sales registered for the song. This was the seventh of Swift’s ten total original studio albums to sell a million or more copies in its first week of release. The number also represented the best first-week revenue for any performer since “Reputation” debuted, with 1,216,000.
The “Eras Tour” is being created in-house by Taylor Swift Touring and promoted by the Messina Touring Group.
The tour’s opening performances expressed their passion in their own ways, like Muna’s tweet declaring the group to be “gay for Tay” and featuring the trio in miniature, resting atop Swift’s lighter from the “Midnights” album cover.
