Taylor Swift has confirmed that rehearsals for her ‘Eras’ tour are underway.

Swift mentioned this, seemingly in passing, on her Instagram story on Thursday (January 5), Billboard reports. The singer said she was “taking a break from tour rehearsal” to tell fans about a 12-hour flash sale of exclusive digital copies of her latest album ‘Midnights’, which included bonus “behind the song” material for four of the album’s tracks.

However, the flash sale announcement was not the detail that caught fans’ eyes. “I knew taylor was in tour rehearsals but her TELLING US just makes it feel even more real,” tweeted one excited Swiftie.

“taylor saying the words tour rehearsal alone it’s all starting to feel real we literally see taylor in 2 and a half months,” said another.

Furthermore, it’s possible that Dylan O’Brien – who starred opposite Sadie Sink in the short film for 2021’s ‘All Too Well (Taylor’s Version) (10 Minute Version)’ – is involved with the choreography for Swift’s backup dancers. A video posted to TikTok by the Knicks City Dancers showed the actor dancing with the troupe, which was accompanied by the caption, “We’ll remember this all too well.”

Swift hasn’t toured since 2018, when she embarked on a world tour in support of her 2017 album ‘Reputation’. In the interim, she has released four albums, 2019’s ‘Lover’, 2020’s ‘folklore’ and ‘evermore’ and the aforementioned ‘Midnights’, which dropped in October. She also released the re-recorded “Taylor’s Versions” of 2008’s ‘Fearless’ and 2012’s ‘Red’.
