Last week, the singer, who released new album ‘Midnights’ last month (October 21), announced US dates for ‘The Eras Tour’, which will run throughout next summer and feature a host of special guests including Paramore, beabadoobee, Phoebe Bridgers, girl in red, MUNA, Haim, Gayle, Gracie Abrams and Owenn.
In the wake of the announcement, Swifties on TikTok have joked about cancelling their weddings if Swift’s tour travels through their city on that evening.
“I am feeling so sorry for any millennial women out there who just found out their wedding date is one of these,” one user said in a video.
“That’s gotta be happening, right. You’ve been planning this wedding for two years and now she’s coming to your city on your wedding day.”
She added: “Your millennial female friends and your bridesmaids, now torn between which of the events they got to. Maybe even you, yourself.”
Those in the comments section also shared the sentiment, with one writing: “Weddings can be rescheduled. Stadium tours are non negotiable,” with another saying they would “absolutely leave my own wedding early” to go and see Swift live.
One fan whose own wedding actually does fall on the day of Swift’s Seattle show with Haim said: “Taylor Swift is finally going on tour, but I live in Seattle, and that’s my wedding day. Come on. What are the chances of that?”
She added: “Sooo do I cancel my wedding or..??
“The problem is, a ton of my friends are also Swifties so now I’m putting them in the position to also travel for another show. I know I have good friends, they will come to my wedding. But the situation sucks. What are the odds that Taylor’s going to be in my city on my wedding day?”
In a four-star review of ‘Midnights’, NME said: “While she’s known for narrative-driven songwriting, ‘Midnights’ could possibly see Swift at her most candid, taking us through the sorts of revelations that only come to light – or can be vocalised – in the wee hours.”
