Megastar Taylor Swift is playing Soldier Field as part of "The Eras" tour.

  • Mark your calendar for June 2 and 3, 2023.

The intrigue: Not unlike Harry Styles, Swift will perform multiple shows — and we're one of only seven cities where she'll do that.

If you go: Tickets go on public sale Nov. 18, but you can sign up for presale to buy them earlier.

  • Initial prices range from $44-$449. VIP packages range from $199-$899.
  • According to SeatGeek, the most expensive local ticket in recent history was The Grateful Dead ($650) in 2015.

The big picture: Swift made Billboard Hot 100 history this week by becoming the first artist to have a song in every one of the top 10 spots, the music charting website said Monday.

  • The 10 tracks come from her 10th studio album, "Midnights." She passed 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.

💭 Justin's thought bubble: Taylor Swift is amazing. She's doing things in popular music that even The Beatles didn't do.

  • But that first weekend in June is already crazy here. Now add hundreds of thousands of Swifties to the mix? I'm getting anxious just thinking about it!
