Taylor Swift, a global pop icon, said on November 1 that she will be embarking on a tour for the first time in five years, with numerous US stadium performance dates set for 2023 and overseas stops to be announced later.
The 32-year-old American singer-songwriter released her 10th studio album Midnights on October 21, and by Tuesday, its skyrocketing popularity had made her the first artist in the Billboard 100’s 64-year history to hold all 10 positions.
Her 2023 tour will showcase both her new record and a retrospective of her productive and illustrious career. Swift stated in an Instagram post that the tour would be “a journey across the musical eras of my career (past and present!).”
The concert dates cover March to August 2023 in the United States, and the shows will take place in or near major locations such as Boston, New York City, Los Angeles, and Chicago.
“I cannot WAIT to see your beautiful faces in the wild. It has taken a long time,” Swift wrote.
Swift completed her final stadium tour in 2018 to promote her album Reputation. Since then, she has released the studio albums Lover, folklore, and evermore, and re-recorded the albums Red and Fearless, although she has not performed live throughout the COVID-19 pandemic. The Grammys named Folklore album of the year in 2021.
The Eras Tour will feature Paramore, Beabadoobee, Phoebe Bridges, Girl in Red, MUNA, Haim, Gracie Abrams, Gayle, and Owenn as opening performers.
