Taylor Swift Makes It Eight For Eras At Wembley In 2024

Global superstar Taylor Swift, who is in the midst of her global phenomenon of a concert tour has just announced two further dates at London’s Wembley Stadium for August 2024! The additional dates will make it eight in total on this run at the UK’s largest stadium. Swift’s time at Wembley begins with three dates in June followed by a further (now) five shows in August. That number will have the 33-year-old matching the eight dates British pop icons Take That played at the iconic North West London during their 2011 Progress Tour.

The “Eras Tour”, that kicked off in March this year in Glendale, Arizona and swept North America, kicked off it’s Latin American leg with with a trio of shows at Argentina’s Estadio River Plate in Buenos Aires last week before it goes on to hit up Rio De Janeiro and São Paulo later this year. The tour will pick back up in February, moving across to Tokyo for four dates, Melbourne for three, Sydney for four and Singapore for six massive nights before the European leg starts with four shows at Paris’ La Défense Arena in May.

UK and Ireland shows kick off at Edinburgh’s Murrayfield Stadium on 7th June, taking in Liverpool and Cardiff before the first of Swift’s London dates. Dublin follows before the tour heads back to mainland Europe before the five encore shows at Wembley Stadium, kicking off on 15th August.

The tour is garnering a huge amount of press attention for many reasons. At almost four hours in length, the show is not at all a run-through of the star’s latest record with a smattering of past hits. It is, instead, split into sections that represent each of Swift’s past “Eras” to date. You’ll catch her early Country music sound, her radio-friendly Country-Pop turn with 2012’s Red, her bold step firmly into pop stardom with 2014 record 1989 and 2017’s follow-up Reputation, her foray into COVID lockdown-generated twin folk records Evermore and Folklore as well as last year’s Midnights. Swift even made headlines by putting a concert film of the Eras tour out in cinemas both mid-tour and bypassing the traditional Hollywood studio system, making deals directly with cinema chains and forcing the big studios to shift their release dates!

Check out the trailer for Taylor Swift’s Eras Tour concert film below:

Hayley Williams-led pop-rockers Paramore, who put out incredible sixth studio record This Is Why earlier this year are confirmed to support Swift on all of her European Eras tour dates. In a post on X (formerly Twitter), they said “a limited number of fans who previously registered for shows in London will be selected for access to the sale and will receive notifications via email starting today”.

The demand for Taylor Swift’s Eras tour in higher still given that the last time she was in the UK was for 2018’s Reputation Tour, again including Wembley Stadium dates. Rockshot Magazine went down to check out one of the shows on that tour, and you can read what went down here. Since then, the pandemic has scuppered her previously announced Glastonbury Festival Pyramid stage headline slot, when the 2020 edition of the festival was cancelled. Swift’s current tour schedule also precludes her from playing at the Pilton, Somerset festival on any of it’s 2024 dates as she will, instead, be wowing Irish fans at Dublin’s Aviva Stadium.
