Pop superstar Taylor Swift announced Tuesday morning that she’ll be embarking on her first official tour in nearly five years. ‘The Eras Tour’ will kick off in Glendale, Arizona and work its way through the U.S., stopping in Detroit on June 10, 2023. International shows will be announced at a later date.
Supporting acts range from showstoppers like Paramore (who will only appear for opening night), HAIM and Phoebe Bridgers to more indie artists like beabadoobee, girl in red, Gracie Abrams, OWENN, GAYLE and MUNA.

This will be Swift’s first time back on the road since the ‘reputation Stadium Tour’ in 2018. She had a festival-style concert series promoting her 2019 release Lover in the books, but it was ultimately cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Since then, she has released six albums, including four new studio albums and two re-releases. In Tuesday’s announcement, she describes this tour as “a journey through the musical eras of my career (past and present!),” indicating that songs from each of these albums will be represented in the setlist, rather than promoting any one album in particular.
The announcement comes a day after Swift made Billboard history with her newest LP, Midnights. She’s now the first artist to claim every spot in the Hot 100’s top ten in a single week, which also makes this the first time in history that no male artists have been featured in the Hot 100’s top ten.
Tickets are being sold through a Ticketmaster Verified Fan Presale system in an effort to avoid ticket scalpers from hiking up the original prices. Standard tickets are set to range from $49 to $449, with VIP packages ranging from $199 to $899. Verified Fan Presales will begin Nov. 15.
