Changes to Taylor Swift’s upcoming shows in Edinburgh have been announced ahead of the The Eras Tour kicking off in the capital.

Ticketholders have been told that doors to the show will open 30 minutes earlier than previously planned.

Doors at Edinburgh Murrayfield were originally supposed to open at 4.30pm but in an email sent out on Friday, Ticketmaster said they will now open at 4pm.

Fans have been assured that “everything else is staying exactly the same” and all fans need to do is show up on the day they booked for.

The change in time has Swifties on high alert that the singer could be extending her already three and a half hour set following the release of her eleventh album, The Tortured Poets Department.

The hotly anticipated show is set to break the record for Scotland’s biggest-selling stadium show when she dazzles at Edinburgh Murrayfield on June 7, 8 and 9.

It comes just a year after former One Direction star, Harry Styles, broke the record for the country’s biggest stadium show when he played to just under 70,000 at Murrayfield last summer.

Edinburgh Council granted organisers permission to increase the stadium’s capacity from 67,130 to 72,990.

The event was unanimously approved by the council’s licensing board on Monday, March 25 with an additional capacity of 5,860 (8.73%).

Swift has spoken fondly about Scotland on multiple occasions and even opened up about her Scottish ancestry during a show at Glasgow’s Hydro in 2015.

Explaining that her father had emailed her ahead of her performance to inform her of the family’s Scottish roots, she told fans that she was “proud” to be one of them.

She said: “In the subject line it said ‘tell Scotland this’, and in the email he said our whole family is from Scotland and you have to tell them that.

“So I am one of you, and I’m proud because this crowd is amazing.”

The singer then performed hit single Blank Space while swinging a golf club, and declared afterwards: “I happen to love Scottish people, personally.”

A website which outlines the ancestry of famous people,, also directly connects Swift’s family line to William the Lion, King of Scotland.

Both claims, though unproven, connect the royal lines to Swift through her father, stockbroker Scott Kingsley Swift.
