Taylor Swift has added an additional 17 dates to her “The Eras Tour” that was announced Nov. 1, putting her into three-night runs at multiple major stadiums and five dates at SoFi Stadium near Los Angeles to wrap things up in August.
Announced somewhat quietly on the pop star’s Instagram account and listed on her official website, new on the routing are dates at State Farm Stadium in Glendale, Arizona, Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas, Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, NRG Stadium in Houston (two nights), Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta, Nissan Stadium in Nashville, Soldier Field in Chicago, Ford Field in Detroit, Acrisure Stadium in Pittsburgh, Paycor Stadium in Cincinnati, Arrowhead Stadium in Kansas City, Empower Field in Denver, and two new dates at SoFi Stadium in Inglewood, California.
With “international dates to be announced soon,” that brings the Eras total to 52 dates in North America, with three-night runs in nine venues and five nights in SoFi Stadium.
For comparison, Swift’s 2018 “Reputation” world tour took in 53 dates and grossed $345 million, as reported to Pollstar. That year she trailed behind only Ed Sheeran, who did 94 shows and grossed more than $430 million, setting a single-year tour gross record. Both of those tours were promoted domestically by Messina Touring Group, as is Swift’s “Eras” tour.
The tour rollout and schedule appears to be a combination of trends built over recent years, with NFL-sized stadiums offering the largest production capacity and ticket inventory. In recent years, high-profile artists have set up shop for extended runs in one city, most notably with Harry Styles’ recent “Harry’s House” run and BTS’ “Permission to Dance” multi-night runs at Allegiant Stadium and SoFi Stadium, although not on a full coast-to-coast basis. Swift may be unprecedented in doing three nights at multiple NFL-sized stadiums in one country.
