Hot Swiftie summer has been and gone, and what a summer it was! Us UK-based Taylor fans waited around for months, pouring over set lists and constantly refreshing our feeds to hear news about the star arriving on our shores. It took the meaning of FOMO to a whole other level until, finally, we were put out of our misery. UK Eras Tour dates were announced, including a total of five massive Wembley shows and support from Paramore.
On her US leg, we saw the mega star perform through a torrential storm, dive head first into the stage, partake in a short-lived (and bizarre) relationship with The 1975 frontman Matty Healy, and bring her ex Taylor Lautner out to do a few backflips. We can only hope that the UK leg will be just as exciting and spectacular.
And as any hardcore fan knows, Tay Tay truly is the gift that keeps on giving. After the chaotic scramble for UK tickets left thousands disappointed, she's only gone and announced extra dates. Here's everything we know.

Two new London shows announced for the UK Eras tour
The new shows will be at London’s Wembley Stadium on August 19 and August 20 and tickets will be available to a limited number of fans who registered for London shows earlier this year. If you’re one of the Lucky Ones (Taylor’s Version), you should receive an email from today (November 14), with sales for August 19 going live at 2pm and for August 20 going live at the same time on November 15. Obviously demand will still be super high, so getting an email does not guarantee you tickets. You’ll still have to approach the whole thing with some strategic planning so we definitely recommend checking out our top tips for securing Taylor tickets.
Best of luck, Swifties!
Is Taylor Swift going on a UK tour in 2024?
We now know for sure that Taylor is going on tour in the UK and dates have finally been announced.
Taylor Swift’s ‘The Eras Tour kicked off in the US on March 17, 2023. Announcing the tour, she said: ‘I’m enchanted to announce my next tour: Taylor Swift | The Eras Tour, a journey through the musical eras of my career (past & present!) The first leg of the tour will be in stadiums across the US, with international dates to be announced as soon as we can!’
When do Taylor Swift Eras tickets go on sale in the UK?
Tickets for the new London shows go on sale on November 14 and November 15. See above for further details!
How do the Ticketmaster on-sale codes work?
On July 5, fans were contacted by Ticketmaster to let them know if they’ve received an ‘on-sale code’ or have been placed on a waiting list.
The ticketing platform stressed that tickets would be provided on a first come, first serve basis, meaning that not everyone who registered in advance will receive an on-sale code. If you were lucky enough to get one, it included timing details and a link to where the on-sale would occur, as well as a unique, non-transferable access code. However, the code did not guarantee that you would secure a ticket.
Fans who did not receive an email were placed on a waiting list until a later date when further tickets become available. Fingers crossed for you.
How can I register for tickets?
To help tickets reach the hands of fans who want to attend the shows, there was the opportunity to register for tickets. Registration closed on Thursday, June 22 at 11.59pm (local time) in the UK, and on Friday, June 23 at 11.59pm (local time) in Ireland and Europe.
Registered fans who received a unique code were able to use them to buy tickets in each city at specified dates and times. Fans who wanted an opportunity to access ticket sales in multiple cities needed to register once for each city they wanted to attend.
Was there any presale?
Fans who participated in the Taylor Swift UK store ‘Midnights’ album pre-order offer qualified for special pre-sale access to all UK and Ireland shows.
The first of those presales was on July 10 at 10am, which was for the London dates and some of the Edinburgh ones. More than 40,000 Swifties joined an online queue in an attempt to snap up tickets before the general sale. Other presales took place on July 11 (for Edinburgh and Dublin) and July 12 (Cardiff and Liverpool).
Unfortunately, if you missed out on pre-ordering the album, you had to wait for general sale to be in with a chance of grabbing tickets.
How much are Taylor Swift tickets in the UK?
For the London and Edinburgh date presales, tickets ranged in price from around £59 (for partial or obstructed view tickets) to £110 for general admission standing. Front standing was priced at about £172, while seated tickets went up to £194.
If you’re after VIP packages, the prices apparently went all the way up to £662.40. And that’s per person. Damn.

What’s going on with resale tickets?
With tickets as precious as these, it’s no wonder that they’re already being resold at extortionate prices. Despite a four ticket limit per buyer, resale sites Viagogo and Stubhub already have tickets being resold. Some are listed for as high as £6,000.
Needless to say, you should be especially careful when buying anything on resale and only buy from official resale websites.
What’s been said about the tour so far?
Taylor Swift kickstarted her tour at Arizona’s State Farm Stadium in March, where she debuted a mega three-hour set playing songs from across her career.
The production includes 16 dancers and many set and costume changes, as well as a moment where the singer appears to ‘dive’ into the stage.
At her show in Arlington, Texas, Swift teased the crowd saying: ‘One thing we said about the Eras Tour: you think you can just go online, you think you can just scroll and know the setlist?
‘Let it be said about the Eras Tour, we’re tricksy. That’s what we are [and] we enjoy a good, healthy setlist hijinks.'
Translation? Expect the unexpected.
What’s the current setlist for her Eras Tour?
The show is made up of an epic 44-song setlist divided up according to the singer’s ten ‘eras’, which each refer to one of her albums.
The songs included ‘Miss Americana & the Heartbreak Prince’, ‘Cruel Summer’, ‘The Man’, ‘You Need to Calm Down’, ‘Lover’, ‘The Archer’, ‘Fearless’, ‘You Belong With Me,’ ‘Love Story’, ‘Tis The Damn Season’, ‘Don’t Blame Me’, ‘22’, ‘We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together’, ‘I Knew You Were Trouble’, ‘Shake it Off’, ‘Anti-Hero’, ‘Mastermind’ and ‘Karma’.
She also performs two different surprise acoustic songs each night and has invited other musicians to perform with her on stage including Phoebe Bridgers and The National’s Aaron Dessner.
