It will be a cruel summer for Australian fans of Taylor Swift as they wait until the dying days of the season to see the singer-songwriter grace stages in Sydney and Melbourne.
The pop superstar announced Australian dates for her Eras tour Wednesday morning, with five shows across Melbourne and Sydney in late February.
Swift will perform at the Melbourne Cricket Ground on Friday 16 and Saturday 17 February 2024.
She will then travel to Sydney for three shows at Accor Stadium Friday 23, Saturday 24 and Sunday 25 February.
Pop’s next big thing, Sabrina Carpenter, will tour with Swift as a special guest in all Australian shows, which are presented by Crown and Frontier Touring.
General ticket sales will go live on Friday 30 June, 10am local time for Sydney and 2pm local time for Melbourne.
Pre-sale tickets and VIP packages will be available from Wednesday 28 June, with an American Express VIP package pre-sale starting on Monday 26 June.
Package prices range from $1,249.90 to $349.90, while tickets start at $79.90 but will set fans back $379.90 for a spot in A Reserve.
The shows are for all ages but under 15-year-olds must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian.
Swift’s Australian leg will come after shows in Latin America and Japan, and before heading on to the UK and Europe as part of the 50-show international tour.
