Taylor Swift fans can be happy to know that she’s rehearsing for her Eras Tour. The singer-songwriter posted a behind-the-scenes slideshow on Instagram on Thursday with the caption “In the era of my life.”
Swift takes a sporty and bohemian approach to dressing. In the first photo, Swift is wearing a black sports bra and free people waist-tie cargo pants with oversized pockets.
In another slide, Swift wears an athletic-focused black Conway Studio sweatshirt. Swift showed some love for fellow singer Beyoncé’s clothing line by pairing her sweatshirt and joggers with the Adidas x Ivy Park Ivytopia Savage Trail sneakers, which are sold out.
In another photo, Swift took her most colorful approach to dressing yet, wearing a denim overalls with floral-print graphics and embroidery from Magnolia Pearl and a tie-dye print bodysuit from Agold.
Swift’s steady Instagram post comes at the same time she revealed she will debut four previously unreleased tracks at midnight, including “Eyes Open (Taylor’s Version),” “Safe & Sound (Taylor’s Version),” ” If This Was a Movie (Taylor’s version)” and “All the Girls You’ve Loved Before.”
Swift’s fans are already showing off the outfits she plans to wear on her upcoming Eras Tour on TikTok. Some fans have found replicas of the looks she wore, from the fringe silver dress to the sparkling bodysuit. There are 36 million related videos from TikTok fans showing off Eras Tour looks.
Of course, getting tickets to Swift’s Eras Tour was no easy feat. Ticketmaster is the platform responsible for the distribution of Eras tour tickets. The platform’s Verified Fan program allows people to pre-register and gain access to pre-sale tickets. However, it is reported that over 3 million people registered for the program, the largest registration in the site’s history, and over half of the registrants were able to use pre-sale credentials. According to Ticketmaster, bots and fans without invite codes flooded the presale site on November 15, causing the site to crash. This resulted in technical glitches, long waiting periods and pre-sales being rescheduled or cancelled.
Two days later on 17 November, Ticketmaster announced that there would be no general sale due to insufficient ticket inventory from pre-sales. Resale sites began selling tickets for prices between $400 and $22,000, and due to Ticketmaster’s pricing model, some customers may have paid more than expected.
The controversy went beyond Taylor Swift fans and caught the attention of Congress. Congressional representatives and US senators began calling for Ticketmaster and its parent company Live Nation Entertainment to be investigated for anti-trust laws. On January 25, the Senate Judiciary Committee held a hearing titled “That’s the Ticket: Promoting Competition and Protecting Consumers in Live Entertainment” as a result of Swift’s Eras Tour ticket debacle.
