Taylor Swift announces two Scottish shows as part of The Eras tour

The US singer-songwriter will take the stage at the capital's BT Murrayfield stadium on June 7 and 8, 2024.

Taylor Swift is set to touch down in Scotland next summer for two gigs in Edinburgh, as part of The Eras tour.

The US singer-songwriter will take the stage at the capital’s BT Murrayfield stadium on June 7 and 8, 2024.

Dedicated Scottish Swifties have long been hoping that she would return north of the border as part of the tour, after being left out of the line-up for her Reputation world tour in 2018.

The upcoming Scottish gigs will mark her first in the country for nine years, last taking to the stage in Glasgow during the 1989 World Tour.

The 12-time Grammy award-winning star embarked on the tour earlier this year, following the success of her latest album, Midnights.

Kicking off in Edinburgh on June 7, she will tour the rest of her UK dates – Liverpool, Cardiff and London – before heading down to Europe.

The tour is in support of her super-hit album, Midnights. Website

If her North American shows are anything to go by, fans can expect sets of more than three hours, with multiple costume changes, high production value, and songs from every album Swift has ever released.

‘I’m one of you, and I’m proud’

Swift stunned a packed crowd at Glasgow’s OVO Hydro in 2015 when she revealed for the first time that she had Scottish ancestry.

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.”
