How Can You Get Tickets?

Hopefully, you’ve already registered for tickets via Ticketmaster (the deadline was 22 June 2023). If not, find a fellow fan who has and get in their good books sharpish. Those who have registered will receive an email on 5 July 2023 stating whether they have been randomly chosen to participate in the sale. If not, all is not lost – you’ll be placed on a waitlist and may have a chance if more tickets become available.

The chosen ones will receive information on when tickets will be available, alongside a link to buy them. If you’re successful, you’ll be able to buy up to four tickets. 

Savvy fans may have signed up to the pre-sale a while back. If that’s the case, you will receive a unique pre-sale access code between 6 July at 10am and 7 July at 10am.

What Can We Expect From The Concerts?

The clue’s in the name: the tour will document Taylor’s many different musical eras, from her old school country days to the poppy 1989 hits and mellow Evermore ballads. As seen in America, the setlist is a whopping 44 tracks long, featuring fan favourites like ‘Cruel Summer’ and ‘Fearless’ alongside plenty from her most recent album, Midnights, such as ‘Bejeweled’, ‘Karma’ and ‘Anti-Hero’. Taylor has also been adding two surprise acoustic songs on each set: so far this has included the likes of ‘Tim McGraw’, ‘Getaway Car’ and ‘Dear John’.

Is Taylor Swift Headlining Glastonbury 2024?

When Taylor first announced her tour, eagle-eyed fans pointed out that she had left a couple of key dates free. However, she has now added new dates which mean it’s highly unlikely she will perform at Glastonbury. While Glastonbury is yet to confirm its 2024 dates, the festival usually takes place on the last full weekend of June, which would mean 26 – 30 June, and Taylor is now performing in Dublin on 28, 29 and 30 June. All is not lost though: there are also headline rumours about the Spice Girls, Rihanna and Madonna.
