Taylor Swift's European Tour: dates, buy ticket, watch

Taylor Swift's "Eras Tour" has already gone down in history as the most attended and hyped since the Beatles' times. If you didn't manage to buy a ticket for the European leg of this tour, you can still watch its American version online. Here you'll find helpful tips on how to witness a Swift concert, whether physically or online.

"I will never forgive myself for not being a Swiftie when this tour happened," confesses one of Taylor Swift's fans in an online forum. And while videos of Swift's previous "Reputation" tour can be found on YouTube, the american pop-diva's many fans will want nothing more than to witness her current "Reputation" tour, the European leg of which will feature songs from her anticipated new album for the first time.

The American leg of the tour began on March 17, 2023 in Glendale, Arizona, and included 52 dates across the United States. The tour then moved to Latin America and the Asia-Pacific region. Last year alone, the tour brought in more than $1 billion in revenue, making it the highest-grossing tour of all time.

Each show on the tour lasts about 3.5 hours and includes 44 songs, collected into separate parts of 10 separate numbers dedicated to the singer's studio albums. At various points on the tour, performances and stars included Paramore, Haim, Phoebe Bridgers, Beabadoobee, Girl in Red, Moona, Gayle, Gracie Abrams and Owenn.

Where can I watch "Taylor Swift: The Eras Tour" online?

Finally, "Taylor Swift: The Eras Tour (Taylor's Version)" film was released in theatres in the fall of 2023, featuring footage from several nights of Swift's performances in Los Angeles. The film screenings alone grossed over $260 million worldwide. Subsequently, the rights to exclusive online streaming of the film provoked a bidding war between Netflix, Universal and Disney, which the latter won. You can watch this version of the tour on Disney+, where it is available from March 18, 2024.

When does Swift's Eras Tour come to Europe?

The Eras Tour comes to Europe in May 2024 and the first city will be Paris, on May 9. Interest in the European leg of the tour has been fueled by information that it will include an updated setlist, including songs from the new "Tortured Poets Department" album which will be released on April 19. Then there will be 49 concerts in many countries of the old continent, including Sweden, Ireland, Portugal, Germany, Poland, Austria, Spain, Italy, the Netherlands and Switzerland. The tour ends in London on August 20th (In the UK, concerts will take place in London, Edinburgh, Liverpool and Cardiff). With basic tickets' prices around €100, the tour's official ticketing agents introduced a pre-registration system with individual codes to minimize cases of resale for profiteering purposes. In many cities, tickets were sold out within the first two to three hours of sales. For example, in Austria, all 170 thousand tickets for three Viennese concerts were sold out in the first few hours, which became the largest and fastest ticket sale in the history of this Alpine country.

Can I still buy a ticket to a Taylor Swift's concert in Europe?

Unfortunately, if you did not rush to buy your tickets in the first hours after sales began, it is almost impossible to do this now. Ticket agents admit they haven't seen such a rush since the Beatles' tour. You can find offers for resale of tickets online, but you need to approach them with the utmost caution so as not to become a victim of scams. There are legitimate online ticket stores that are not official tour ticketing agents but may still sell a small number of tickets, but to snag them you need to be truly lucky.

In all these countries, the star's impending arrival has caused a stir, with prices for hotel rentals and airlines tickets rising, and many cities are predicting a significant influx of tourists on concert days. In many capitals, almost all offers of hotels and private apartments are booked on concert days. Therefore, if you managed to become the luck owner of a ticket to some of Swift's concerts, you will need to try very hard to find accommodation in the city of the concert.

Due to huge demand, some cities will have two or three concerts in a row. It sounds logical that it's easier to get to a Swift's concert not in a popular tourist destination like Paris or London, but in a lesser-known city. In particular, it is the German city of Gelsenkirchen, where the singer will play three concerts at the stadium of the local football team. However, here too the chances of finding accommodation for the night are rapidly decreasing, and prices are rising by leaps and bounds.

When and where does Taylor Swift's tour end?

After a fall break, Taylor Swift will resume her tour in Canada with several concerts in Toronto from November 14 to 23. The final shows of the tour will be in Vancouver on December 6, 7 and 8, 2024.
