Taylor Swift Eras Tour: Melbourne Concert Breaks Records with Spectacular Opening Show

New York, NY, USA – December 13, 2019: Taylor Swift performs at the 2019 Z100 Jingle Ball at Madison Square Garden.

The global pop sensation Taylor Swift set Melbourne ablaze with the biggest concert of her illustrious career during the opening night of her highly anticipated Eras Tour at the iconic Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG) last Friday.

Swift’s electrifying performance kicked off with the iconic opening number, “Miss Americana and the Heartbreak Prince,” from her seventh studio album, Lover. The MCG, packed with 96,000 enthusiastic fans, erupted into a sea of excitement as the megastar took center stage.

The demand for tickets was nothing short of extraordinary, with millions of fans scrambling online when tickets went on sale last June. The seven Australian shows, including the three sold-out concerts in Melbourne and four more at Sydney’s Accor Stadium, have become some of the hottest tickets of the year.

The enthusiasm of Swift’s fans was not limited to securing tickets. Thousands of attendees embraced the theme of the Eras Tour, donning outfits that represented various phases of Swift’s remarkable career — from the Speak Now album to Reputation and the more recent Midnights. Even ticketless fans joined the celebration outside the MCG, creating an unforgettable atmosphere of Swift camaraderie.

As a delightful surprise for the Melbourne audience, Swift treated fans to two additional songs, “Red” and “You’re Losing Me.” The artist also unveiled an alternate cover image for her upcoming album, “The Tortured Poets Department,” adding an extra layer of excitement to the evening.

The Melbourne leg of the Eras Tour marks the beginning of a record-breaking series of concerts for Taylor Swift in Australia. Following the three sold-out shows in Melbourne, Swift is set to grace Sydney’s Accor Stadium with four more sensational performances starting next Friday.

The Taylor Swift Eras Tour promises to be a musical journey through the celebrated artist’s iconic career, and Melbourne has set the stage for an unforgettable chapter in this historic tour.
