Taylor Swift has confirmed that her long-running ‘Eras’ tour will come to a close later this year – find out what the singer had to say below.

While performing in Liverpool last night (June 13), Swift celebrated playing her 100th show of the tour. While thanking her fans for their support and dedication during the career-spanning tour, Swift acknowledged that it won’t go on for much longer.

“This has definitely been the most exhausting, all-encompassing but most joyful, most rewarding, most wonderful thing that has ever wondered in my life, this tour,” she said, reflecting on her 100th ‘Eras’ show.

“This is the very first time I’ve ever acknowledged to myself and admitted that this tour is going to end in December. Like, that’s it. That feels so far from now, but then again, it feels like we’ve just played our first show on this tour.”

She went on to add: “This tour has really become my entire life, it’s taken over everything, like I think I once had hobbies, but I don’t know what they were anymore. All I do when I’m not on stage is sit at home and try to think of clever acoustic song mashups and think about what you might want to hear.”

Following her European stint, she will return to North America for her last grouping of ‘Eras’ concerts in Miami, New Orleans and Indianapolis in October and November and then Canada. Her last show for the year – and seeming the ‘Eras’ tour as a whole – is currently slated for December 8 in Vancouver, British Columbia.

Earlier this month, NME gave Swift’s first Edinburgh show of the tour a glowing five-star review, writing: “Despite being an arena show, in a huge, cavernous venue, Swift and her fans have managed to cultivate a community. Strangers swap friendship bracelets, laugh and cry together, and embrace the tour’s in-jokes and lore (for example shouting “one, two, three, let’s go bitch” during ‘Delicate’).

“It’s the power of Swift, an artist who’s inspired not only the renaming of a Scottish Loch, but also countless fans to come out and embrace being a part of the Eras family. With The Eras Tour, then, Swift’s managed to craft a marvel of a show that comes with a beating heart.”

Following the remaining Liverpool shows, Swift will perform for one night in Cardiff on June 18 and three in London’s Wembley Stadium on June 18-22. She then heads to Dublin on June 28, before taking the tour around Europe.
