Taylor Swift’s 2023 ‘Eras Tour’: Details, Tickets
On November 1, Taylor announced she’s kicking off the “Eras Tour” scheduled to hit U.S. stadiums beginning in March 2023 and running into August, with international dates set to be revealed later.
Since she has released four original studio albums since her last tour in 2018, many fans were wondering what specific album this tour would be supporting. The answer? All of them. The Nashville native described the tour as “a journey through the musical eras of my career (past and present!),” with a graphic showing her looks from different phases of her career.
Opening acts for the U.S. leg of the tour are Paramore, Haim, Phoebe Bridgers, Beabadoobee, Girl in Red, Muna, Gayle, Gracie Abrams and Owenn. Talk about a lineup!
Is Taylor Swift’s ‘Eras Tour’ Canceled?
Following a massive two-day ticket presale, Ticketmaster released a statement about sales to the general public.
“Due to extraordinarily high demands on ticketing systems and insufficient remaining ticket inventory to meet that demand, tomorrow’s public on-sale for Taylor Swift | The Eras Tour has been cancelled,” the Twitter post read. Some fans thought the tour has been canceled.
However, it appears that Taylor is still planning on hitting the road.
When Was the Last Time Taylor Swift Went on Tour?
Taylor’s last major tour came in 2018 with the “Reputation Tour.” More recently, the pop star gave a surprise performance of “Exile” with Bon Iver live for the first time at OVO Arena in Wembley on October 26, 2022.
“Taylor Swift just came out with Bon Iver in London and it was honestly epic,” said one fan on Twitter. Another fan tweeted, “Taylor Swift and Bon Iver singing exile live is what you hear when you enter the gates of heaven.”
The London performance was Taylor’s first live show since Midnights crashed Spotify earlier this week as users scrambled to listen to her new album. The platform later revealed that the LP was the most-streamed project in a single day in the service’s history. “I’m beside myself,” she said of its early success on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon. “I’m feeling very overwhelmed by the fans’ love of this record. I’m also feeling, like, very soft and fragile. The two can exist at once.”
For all the numbers and accolades, she explained to the host that she was simply “just happy to be here,” she insisted. “I’m 32. So we’re considered geriatric pop stars. They start trying to put us out to pasture at 25.” Taylor’s here to stay!
