Following the release of her sixth studio album, Reputation, Taylor Swift announced a Reputation 2018 World Tour that will start in Arizona on May 8.
In January 2018, the ‘Shake It Off’ singer added further US tour dates, including a new May performance in Santa Clara, California.
However, despite the Reputation World Tour having already sold $180 million (£130.5m) worth of tickets and is predicted to gross between $390 million and $510 million (£282.7-369.7m), there are reports that the concert series is ‘shaping up to be a disaster’.
While the full Reputation 2018 World Tour kicks off on May 8, 2018 in Glendale Arizona, Taylor Swift’s UK tour begins on June 8 at Manchester’s Etihad Stadium. Originally meant to be only three dates, the Reputation UK tour quickly doubled-up adding three more dates to the programme.
This means that Taylor will play in Manchester on May 9 as well, before going to Dublin’s Croke Park on June 15 for two nights. Swift will wrap up her UK tour in London’s Wembley stadium with two nights on June 22 and 23.
With ‘Look What You Made Me Do’ becoming Taylor Swift’s first UK Number One song and a succession of hits off the Reputation album including ‘…Ready For It’, ‘Gorgeous’ and ‘End Game’ – the likes of TicketMaster and LiveNation were quick to ensure that Taylor Swift fans knew about the UK tour ticket availability.
Taylor Swift’s Reputation tour will see the singer perform in the UK and Ireland on six dates in the following cities:
Friday, June 8 – Manchester, Etihad Stadium
Saturday, June 9 – Manchester, Etihad Stadium
Friday, June 15 – Dublin, Croke Park
Saturday, June 16 – Dublin, Croke Park
Friday, June 22 – London, Wembley Stadium
Saturday, June 23 – London, Wembley Stadium
