The wait is over. Taylor Swift will make her long-awaited return to the UK, and will play six London dates in the summer of 2024 as part of her ‘Eras’ world tour.
Dropping the bombshell this afternoon, the singer took to social media to break news of her plans to hit the road later this year and throughout 2024. Last month, it was announced that Swift will play London’s Wembley Stadium on June 21 and June 22, as well as heading back two months later for another double-act on August 16 and August 17. Then, after a flurry of registrations flew into the site, it has been announced that even more dates are on the cards across Europe, including an extra date in London on August 15. NOW, it seems that six is the magic number, with another Taylor Swift London date added for June 23.
Oh, and rolling out on tour with Taylor Swift, after a successful run in the US, is Paramore, fresh from the release of This Is Why earlier this year. In Taylor’s words, the pair will ‘frolic around Europe together.
As many have pointed out, there was a handy gap in her tour dates that have fuelled the ever-growing rumours of her playing a certain festival at Worthy Farm in the summer of ’24, but now it has been announced that Swift will be playing Dublin across all three dates of the festival.
Before arriving in Europe, she will be saying “It’s me, hi” to cities in Mexico, Argentina, Brazil, Japan, Sydney, Australia and Singapore.
It marks her first headline UK shows since 2018, when she played in support of her album Reputation, which dropped all the way back in 2017. These shows will be the first chance for many fans to hear songs from her releases since then, which include Folklore, Evermore, and her latest record, Midnights.
Sabrina Carpenter has been announced as Swift’s opening act for a section of her tour, but this does not include the European dates.
How do I get tickets to the Taylor Swift UK tour?
Yes, yes, we’re telling you already. Anyone hoping to attend a Taylor Swift was asked to sign up to the pre-registration link in Taylor Swift’s original tweet announcing the tour to receive a purchase link to tickets. This will not guarantee a ticket, but will take you through to the page instantly.
Fans who purchased a pre-order copy of her album Midnights (2022) were also sent a special code that allowed them to sign up for earlier pre-sales, which have begun this week.
When do Taylor Swift tickets go on sale?
All six London Wembley Stadium dates go on sale at 2pm on July 18. Links to those who pre-registered were due to be sent out last week but the pre-sales throughout are now limited to the album pre-order codes. Pre-sales begun yesterday (July 10), with a handful more set to begin. Fans are urged to check their inbox and spam for links to presales, which will also take place on July 11 and July 12.
Tickets will go on general sale on July 17. Any pre-sale and general sale link is expected to experience huge demand, with fans told to brace for lengthy online queues.
