Taylor Swift Announces Additional UK Tour Dates for 2024
Taylor Swift has added more dates to her already packed 2024 concert schedule, including several stops across Europe in cities like Paris, Munich, Stockholm, and Vienna.
Responding to the “phenomenal demand,” Swift has included new shows in Liverpool, Edinburgh, and London on her tour itinerary.
The pop sensation will now perform additional shows at Murrayfield Stadium in Edinburgh on Sunday, June 9, Anfield Stadium in Liverpool on Thursday, June 13, and Wembley Stadium in London on Sunday, June 23.
Excitingly, Swift has also revealed that 2000s emo icons Paramore will be joining her for the European leg of the Eras tour.
These latest dates are in addition to her previously announced stops in Paris, Stockholm, Amsterdam, Vienna, and more.
However, the announcement of these additional shows has put an end to rumors suggesting Swift might have been scheduled to perform at the 2024 Glastonbury Festival, as the dates that coincided with the festival have now been filled.
Swift, who was originally set to headline the festival in 2020 before it was canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic, will now focus on her own tour.
As hundreds of thousands of eager fans in the UK anxiously await their presale codes for the tour, Swift enthusiasts hope to secure their tickets for the European leg of her tour.
Lucky fans will have until July 14 to select their desired show before general ticket sales begin on July 18.
Tickets for Swift’s US shows sold out rapidly, despite technical issues reported by fans who faced difficulties accessing the Ticketmaster website, enduring long wait times in queues, and, in some cases, having their tickets canceled.
Her show has received acclaim since its inception, with Swift captivating audiences by performing over 40 tracks each night from her extensive back catalog. She even finds time to surprise fans by inviting guest artists such as HAIM, Phoebe Bridgers, and Marcus Mumford to join her on stage and perform what she calls “secret songs.”
This tour also aligns with Swift’s ongoing efforts to re-record most of her previous works, following a dispute with music producer Scooter Braun, who previously owned her master recordings but later sold them. Swift’s latest re-recording, Speak Now (Taylor’s Version), is set to release this Friday and features beloved tracks like “Enchanted,” “Mean,” and “Dear John,” which are speculated to be about her past relationship with musician John Mayer.
