The Taylor Swift Eras Tour continues to make its way across Europe and after sold-out shows in France, Sweden, Portugal and Spain, the record breaking global show heads to the United Kingdom where the 34-year-old will play ten concerts before heading back to the mainland before wrapping up the European leg with a further five nights at Wembley Stadium in North London.

The Eras Tour is the highest grossing tour of all time, becoming the first to surpass $1 billion dollars in revenue last year and is poised to set new merchandising records too. Taylor is projected to generate another $500 million in merchandise sales alone by the time her round the world jaunt comes to an end in Canada at the start of December.

The singer-songwriter’s shows during her tour of the British Isles will bring in an estimated £1 billion to the local economy before the Pennsylvania born leaves the UK on 1 July for dates in Amsterdam, Zurich , Milan, Gelsenkirchen, Hamburg, Munich, Warsaw and Vienna before returning to London for a second run of shows at Wembley on 15, 16, 17, 19 and 20 August with every show on the tour a complete sell-out.

The 34-year-old has completed two nights at the traditional home of Scottish Rugby, Murrayfield Stadium with over 70,000 fans enthralled by the singer’s marathon show with more than 40 songs from her extensive repertoire getting an airing.

One of the highlights on the Eras Tour has become the ‘secret songs’ section where Swift deviates from the standard set-list and performs rare or less heralded tracks. Such was the case on Saturday night in Edinburgh where she performed ‘Crazier’ for the first time ever live with the track being preceded by ‘All of the Girls you Loved Before’.

‘Crazier’ was originally released in 2009 and forms part of the soundtrack to the film Hannah Montana: The Movie.

Swift played the track on the piano and the intro was greeted with massive applause from the crowd.

Sunday (9 June) wraps up the three Edinburgh concerts with the Eras Tour now moving to Anfield (home of Liverpool FC) for three nights between June 14-16.
