Taylor Swift is in the midst of her Eras Tour in the US, and to say we're jealous of those who get to experience it is an understatement. From surprise guest performances, to celebrities being spotted in the crowd, Swifties have had quite a few T-Swizzle Easter eggs to sink their teeth into recently. UK fans finally got confirmation that the singer will soon take to the stage on British soil on 20 June, and now she has revealed more dates have been added to the schedule (and a new support act).
On 20 June, Swift confirmed via Twitter that she will be heading to the UK next summer. Swift wrote alongside a full calendar of international tour dates, "EXCUSE ME HI I HAVE SOMETHING TO SAY 🙋♀️ I can't wait to see so many of you on The Eras Tour next year at these new international dates! Visit http://TaylorSwift.com/tour for more information on your registrations, pre-sales and on-sales!!"
She then gave fans an update on 5 July, tweeting: "Really can't contain my excitement because… we're adding 14 new shows to The Eras Tour. And I get to travel the world doing shows with @paramore!! Hayley and I have been friends since we were teens in Nashville and now we get to frolic around the UK/Europe next summer??? I'm screaming???"

Leading up to the big announcement, there was a hidden message about the 33-year-old superstar's plans to cross the pond. Eagle-eyed Swifties may have noticed this note originally beneath the "Taylor Swift The Eras Tour US Leg" sign, which read: "International dates to be announced." Swift also dropped hints about international tour dates — and specifically, about her journey to the UK — as British fans who pre-ordered her album "Midnights" before its October 2022 release were granted with an exciting message. "Pre-order the new Taylor Swift album 'Midnights' on any format from the official UK store to get special presale code access for forthcoming and yet-to-be-announced Taylor Swift UK show dates," it read.
While fans will already have had to register for pre-sale codes, the ticket sales are staggered depending on venue, beginning next week. And we're expecting a very high demand. In addition to the new dates, speculation has risen around a Glastonbury-shaped gap in Swift's schedule next summer, so could be be expecting a headline announcement imminently? Time will tell!
