Taylor Swift Announces 2023 ‘Eras Tour’ of U.S. Stadiums

The long-awaited “Eras Tour,” which will hit American stadiums starting in March 2023 and continuing through August, was announced by Taylor Swift on Tuesday morning. International dates will be released later.

The support acts, many of who Swift has previously supported, are very much focused on the sisterhood. Paramore, Haim, Phoebe Bridgers, Beabadoobee, Girl in Red, Muna, Gayle, Gracie Abrams, and Owenn will serve as the tour’s opening acts in the United States.

The tour kicks up on March 18, 2023, in Glendale, Arizona, which is where Swift’s previous tour, the “Reputation” tour before the epidemic, started in 2018.

Four and a half months later, on August 4-5, the U.S. leg concludes with two nights at L.A.’s SoFi Stadium, the location she had planned to debut as a musical venue in 2020 with the postponed “Lover Fest” mini-tour. See all 20 cities that Swift will visit over the course of 27 dates by scrolling through.
Given that she has released four new studio albums since her last tour, whose album can we say the current one is supporting? they are all. With a visual depicting her appearance during various stages of her career, Swift defined the tour as “a trip through the musical eras of my career (past and present!)”.

On Nov. 18, at 10:00 a.m. local time, general sales begin. As with most current large tours, Capital One cardholders will be able to purchase tickets sooner than everyone else starting on November 15 at 2 p.m. local time through November 17 at 10 p.m.

There will be a Ticketmaster Verified Fan program, similar to her previous tour, “to ensure tickets get into the hands of fans.” Interested ticket purchasers can register for the setup online from now until November 9th.

Swift has disclosed the price of her tickets in advance, which is unusual in the present era of variable-priced “platinum tickets” when fans receive minimal information regarding established ticket costs.

They run from $49 up to $449, with VIP packages that start at $199 and go up to $899.

International dates were promised in Swift’s statement.

Even while her supporters might enjoy the concept of an adventure with a nostalgic theme that covers the entirety of her career, Swift is truly expected to represent the new era on tour. Since her last tour, she has released “Lover,” “Folklore,” “Evermore,” and now “Midnights,” along with re-recordings of the “Red” and “Fearless” albums with the help of bonus tracks. Any one of these albums alone would have been reason enough to justify its own tour in a time before the entire concert scene necessarily came to a halt.

There was an attention to detail in the tour announcement even in the graphics signifying the opening acts at different spots in the tour routing, with Bridgers, for instance, being represented by a tiny ghost, in honor of the skeleton costume she’s used on her own headlining tours.

It’s likely not a coincidence that the tour schedule is divided into two columns, each with 13 dates. Twenty cities will host 27 performances. The cities receiving a two-night engagement include Arlington, Texas; Foxborough, Massachusetts; and East Rutherford, New Jersey, in addition to Los Angeles, Atlanta, Philadelphia, and Chicago.

When “Midnights” was released in October, there was no question as to how popular Swift tickets would be. According to Luminate this week, it had the best week since Adele’s “25” album, with 1,578,000 album-equivalent units. Additionally, it was revealed on Monday that for the first time ever, a single artist’s songs took up all ten of the top positions on the Billboard Hot 100, with “Anti-Hero” taking the top spot. Fans in any case strongly want the complete album; of the almost 1.6 million album units recorded for “Midnights,” 1,140,000 were full albums.

It became Swift’s fifth album, out of her 10 original studio releases overall, to sell a million-plus copies in the first week out. The figure also represented the best first-week sales for an album by any performer since “Reputation” came out of the gate with 1,216,000.

The “Eras Tour” is being produced in-house by Taylor Swift Touring and promoted by the Messina Touring Group.

The tour’s opening acts expressed their enthusiasm in their own ways, such as the tweet from Muna that declared the group “gay for Tay” and pictured the trio in miniature, resting atop Swift’s lighter on the “Midnights” album cover.
