About the Eras Tour

The tour started on March 17, 2023, in Glendale, Arizona, and will consist of 152 shows across five continents and several countries.

It goes through Swift's entire discography, from her first album "Taylor Swift,: which was first released in 2006, to her latest album, "The Tortured Poets Department," which was released this year. 

It is the highest-grossing tour of all-time. So much so that a bill was introduced in Washington earlier this year to strengthen anti-bot regulations and to crack down on scalpers, after Ticketmaster crashed and fans saw tickets as high as $10,000 resale in some places.

The legislation is called the Ticket Sales Warrant Integrity, Fairness and Transparency Act, or TSWIFT for short. It was introduced in the House but did not get any further this legislative session. 

Here’s what House Bill 1648 would do:

  • Strengthen anti-bot regulations, making it harder for bots to purchase tickets before fans can get their hands on them.
  • Place limits on the resale of tickets
  • Require sellers to be transparent about the total cost of a ticket up-front, instead of adding fees at the end.

Taylor Swift in Seattle 

When Swift came to Seattle in July 2023, her back-to-back sold out shows had fans so excited that a 2.3 magnitude earthquake registered at Lumen Field, surpassing the infamous "Beast Quake" in 2011. 

The Beast Quake was a seismic event that occurred at Lumen Field in 2011 when the Seattle Seahawk's Marshawn Lynch scored a touchdown during a playoff game. The crowd's celebration shook the ground at the stadium enough to register on seismometers.

Seismologist Jackie Caplan-Auerbach noted that despite the ground shaking during the Taylor Swift concert, the event was technically not an earthquake.

Caplan-Auerbach was quick to point out that the seismic data from the Beast Quake and Swift Quake may not be a fair comparison. She says that there is a chance that the ground-shaking activity from the Swifties could have been caused by the sound system, while the Beast Quake was likely caused solely by the Seahawk fans.
