What we know about Taylor Swift's new 35-date tour
Taylor Swift this week announced a new U.S. stadium tour that will kick off in 2023 and feature 35 shows — and you may have some trouble (trouble, trouble) getting a ticket.
Driving the news: Swift's tour announcement comes shortly after the massive debut of her new album, "Midnights" and on the week she made Billboard Hot 100 history by having a song in each of the chart's top 10 spots.
The latest: Swift announced Friday that she had added eight new dates to her tour, bringing additional shows to Tampa Bay; Nashville; Foxborough, Mass.; Seattle; East Rutherford, N.J.; Santa Clara and Los Angeles.
- "Looks like I’ll get to see more of your beautiful faces than previously expected," Swift tweeted.

- Swift will hit some of the biggest cities in the country, including stadiums near Dallas, Atlanta, Chicago, Las Vegas and Boston, among others.
- She will be bringing special guests with her, including Phoebe Bridgers, HAIM and Paramore, among others.
- Swift plans to announce international dates in the future.
- Yes, but: Swift isn't touring everywhere, leaving some notable cities — like Charlotte and Washington, D.C. — not feeling all too well.
What she's saying: “I can’t WAIT to see your gorgeous faces out there. It’s been a long time coming,” she wrote on Instagram.
- The tour will be “a journey through the musical eras of my career (past and present!)," she added.
Context: The Eras Tour appears to be centered around Swift's recent albums — "Midnights," "Lover," "folklore" and "evermore" — as well as her classic ones, which she has recently rereleased after re-recording them.
- She planned a tour for the 2019 album "Lover," but it was postponed and then canceled due to COVID-19 restrictions.
- Both "folklore" and "evermore" dropped during the pandemic so she hasn't had a chance to tour with those albums yet.

"Midnights" tops Billboard Hot 100 chart
The big picture: Swift made Billboard Hot 100 history this week by becoming the first artist to have a song in each of the top 10 spots, the music charting website said Monday.
- The 10 tracks come from her 10th studio album, "Midnights." She passed artist Drake, who had nine of the 10 spots in 2021.
- Swift's song "Anti-Hero" claimed the No. 1 spot on the list.
- "Midnights" also became the most-streamed album in a single day upon its debut.
