Taylor Swift announced her lengthy return to the road on Tuesday morning, with a release dubbed “Eras Tour” set to hit US stadiums from March 2023 through August, with international dates to be revealed later.
Supporting acts are all about brotherhood, with a host of acts that Swift has championed in the past. Opening acts for the US tour are Paramore, Haim, Phoebe Bridgers, Beabadoobee, Girl in Red, Muna, Gayle, Gracie Abrams and Owenn.
The tour kicks off March 18, 2023 in what is apparently Swift’s prime location, Glendale, AZ, the same location his last outing, the pre-pandemic “Reputation” tour, began in 2018.
The US leg wraps up four and a half months later with two nights at SoFi Stadium in Los Angeles on August 4 and 5 – the venue it was due to open as a concert venue in 2020 with the canceled ‘Lover Fest’ mini-tour. . Scroll to see the 20 cities Swift will visit across 27 dates.
As for which album can we consider the tour to be supporting, since she has released four original studio albums since her last tour? All. Swift described the tour as “a journey through the musical eras of my career (past and present!)”, with a graphic showing her looks at different phases of her career.
See the full itinerary, with color-coded graphics showing which of the nine opening acts got the gigs in which cities:
The public on-sale is at 10 a.m. local time on November 18. As with all major tours these days, there will be an earlier rollout of tickets for credit card members, in this case Capital One cardholders, starting November 15 at 10 a.m. local time.
As with his previous tour, there will be a Ticketmaster Verified Fan program “to make sure tickets get to fans.” Budding ticket buyers can sign up for the setup through Nov. 9 here.
Unusually in the modern era of variably priced “platinum tickets” where fans get little information about fixed ticket prices, Swift announced the cost of her tickets in advance. They range from $49 to $449, with VIP packages starting at $199 and going all the way up to $899.
Swift’s announcement promised that international dates would follow.
Of all her “Eras,” Swift is truly meant to represent modern touring, as much as fans can relish the idea of a somewhat nostalgic themed release encompassing the full spectrum of her career. She’s released “Lover”, “Folklore”, “Evermore” and now “Midnights” since her last tour, as well as bonus track-assisted re-recordings from the “Red” and “Fearless” albums, any which would have was occasion enough to spark his own tour at a time before the whole concert scene necessarily went on hiatus.
There was attention to detail in the tour announcement, even in the graphics signifying the opening acts at various locations along the tour route, Bridgers, for example, being represented by a small ghost, in the honor of the skeleton costume that she used alone. headlining tours.
It’s probably no coincidence that this same chart divides the tour itinerary into two columns of 13 dates each. There will be 27 shows in 20 cities. Venues that get a two-night stand are in Los Angeles, Atlanta, Philadelphia, Chicago, Arlington, TX, Foxborough, MA, and East Rutherford, NJ.
The reception of “Midnights” when it was released in October left no doubt about the strength of the appetite for Swift tickets. It had the biggest week since Adele’s “25” album, per Luminate this week, with 1,578,000 album-equivalent units. Additionally, it was announced Monday that for the first time in history, the top 10 spots on the Billboard Hot 100 were filled by songs from a single artist, with “Anti-Hero” topping at No. 1. Fans really wanted the full album, anyway – of the nearly 1.6 million album units recorded for “Midnights”, 1,140,000 were purchased copies in full album form. It became Swift’s fifth album, of her 10 total original studio releases, to sell over one million copies in its first week. The figure also represented the highest first-week sales for an album by any artist since “Reputation” was released at 1,216,000.
The “Eras Tour” is produced in-house by Taylor Swift Touring and promoted by the Messina Touring Group.
The tour’s opening acts expressed their excitement in their own unique way, such as Muna’s tweet declaring the group “gay for Tay” and depicting the trio in miniature, resting on Swift’s lighter on the cover of the album. album “Midnights”.
