On November 1, Taylor Swift announced that she will be taking her new album, “Midnights,” on the road and performing it on stage for her fans. Her most popular songs from the newly released album include “Lavender Haze,” “Maroon,” and “Anti-Hero,” and it is expected that at least those songs will be showcased.


A Bit of Background

Let’s take a look at the popular singer/songwriter’s history of touring. She has been on six tours in the past ten years, the latest one being The Reputation Stadium Tour in 2018. By delving into the details of the most recent Swift concert experience, we can get a look at what we can expect from the upcoming tour.

Swift’s Reputation Tour sold out entirely with a total of 53 shows worldwide. She ended up making around $200 million dollars from the experience, and she broke her own record of being the woman with the highest-grossing US tour. Her previous record was with the Red Tour of 2013-2014, with that becoming the highest-grossing tour performed by a country artist in history. The revenue was around $150 million, which means that she broke her record by around $50 million dollars.



As far as the prices were with the previous tour, they ranged from $49-449 per ticket, with the average being $279 per ticket. This is the same for her new The Eras Tour, however, VIP prices range from $189-889 per ticket. While the pricing left some fans discouraged, the sales of these pricey tickets were another issue.

Ticketmaster has been struggling recently due to the tour’s presale. With massive outages during the first few hours of the presale, they had to reschedule it. Anyone waiting in an online queue was instructed to remain waiting until prompted to purchase tickets, adding eight long hours onto the time already spent in the queue. The media soon became flooded with claims against the company, and even fans going as far as to sue for the issues they faced.

As of now, it is not possible to buy tickets from Ticketmaster, as you would’ve had to register on November 9 for the November 15 presale. The remaining tickets will be offered directly to fans who have pre-registered, making it unlikely that fans currently without tickets will be able to claim a seat at this highly anticipated concert.


About the Eras Tour

The Eras Tour has 52 stops in the US alone, happening from March 18 to August 5. The tour will last around 5 months with shows in 17 different cities. The ones closest to the New Jersey area include Pittsburgh, Philadelphia, Foxborough, Mass., and East Rutherford, N.J. 

During the tour, multiple musicians will be stopping in as opening acts. Artists such as Paramore, Phoebe Bridgers, Girl in Red, Haim, Gracie Abrams, and Gayle will be opening some of her performances at certain locations along the tour.

Swift states that this tour will be a “journey through all of my musical eras of my career,” and it’s sure to be an experience that fans young and old will enjoy.
