Taylor Swift finally confirmed her long-rumored return to the road on Tuesday morning. Taylor Swift Announces 'The Eras Tour' and will start in March 2023 and run through August 2023 in the U.S. International dates will be announced later.
There are a lot of acts that Swift has supported in the past who are among the opening acts. Paramore, Haim, Phoebe Bridgers, Beabadoobee, Girl in Red, Muna, Gayle, Gracie Abrams, and Owenn will be the opening acts for the U.S. leg of the tour.
The tour starts in Glendale, Arizona, on March 18, 2023. This is where Swift's last tour, the pre-pandemic "Reputation" tour, started in 2018.

Do you Swifties feel ready? Taylor Swift will be on tour. The famous singer told Good Morning America on November 1 that she was going on tour again for The Eras Tour. Swift, who had to cancel her Lover Fest concerts in 2021 because of the coronavirus pandemic, said in a video message,
It's a journey through all the musical eras of my career. I have some brilliant opening acts coming along with me. And really I'm just so excited that I get to look you guys in the eye and say 'thank you' for everything. Thank you for this incredible week with Midnights and everything that you've done for me. I just am very excited to see you.- Taylor Swift
Swift's website, which has been updated with information about The Eras Tour, says that Paramore, GAYLE, beabadoobee, Gracie Abrams, Phoebe Bridgers, girl in red, OWN, MUNA, and HAIM are among the great opening acts.
The U.S. leg ends four and a half months later with two nights at L.A.'s SoFi Stadium on August 4 and 5. This is the same place she was going to open as a concert venue in 2020 with the "Lover Fest" mini-tour that she had to cancel.
Since she has put out four studio albums since her last tour, which one should we think of the tour as supporting? Every one. Swift called the tour “a journey through the musical eras of my career (past and present!),” and a graphic showed how she looked at different times in her career.
The sale to the public starts at 10 a.m. time zone on November 18. As is the case with most big tours these days, people with credit cards, in this case, Capital One cards, will be able to get tickets first. This will start on November 15 at 10 a.m. local time.
As with her last tour, there will be a Ticketmaster Verified Fan program “to ensure tickets get into the hands of fans.” People who want to buy tickets can sign up for the program here from now until November 9.
Swift has told fans ahead of time how much her tickets will cost, which is unusual in this day and age of "platinum tickets" with variable prices where fans don't know much about set ticket prices. VIP packages start at $199 and go up to $899. Prices range from $49 to $449.
Even though fans might like the idea of a tour with a nostalgic theme that covers her whole career, Swift should really focus on the modern era when she goes on tour. She's put out "Lover," "Folklore," "Evermore," and now "Midnights" since she was last on tour.
She's also re-recorded "Red" and "Fearless" with the help of bonus tracks, and any one of those albums would have been enough to start a tour on its own before the whole concert scene had to stop.
Even the graphics for the opening acts at different points on the tour route showed attention to detail. For example, Bridgers was shown as a tiny ghost, which was a nod to the skeleton costume she's worn on her own headlining tours.
It's probably not a coincidence that the same graphic divides the tour schedule into two columns of 13 dates each. Twenty-six shows will be held in twenty cities. Los Angeles, Atlanta, Philadelphia, Chicago, Arlington, TX, Foxborough, MA, and East Rutherford, NJ are all getting a two-night stand.
The response to "Midnights" when it came out in October made it clear how much people want to see Swift live. This week, Luminate said that it had the biggest week since Adele's "25" album with 1,578,000 album-equivalent units.
Also, on Monday, it was said that for the first time in history, all 10 of the top spots on the Billboard Hot 100 were filled by songs by the same artist, with "Anti-Hero" at the top.
Even though fans really wanted the full album, only about 1,140,000 copies of "Midnights" were bought as the full album out of the nearly 1.6 million album units that were sold.
It was the fifth of Swift's 10 original studio albums to sell more than a million copies in the first week. The number was also the best first-week sales for an album by any artist since "Reputation" sold 1,216,00 copies in its first week.
Taylor Swift has announced the first leg of her "The Eras Tour." These will be her first live shows since her "Reputation" tour in 2018.
The first set of dates is in stadiums across the U.S., including two nights in Los Angeles, Chicago, Atlanta, Philadelphia, and other cities. Swift said that soon, international tour dates will be made public.
