Taylor Swift Blown Away by Size of ‘Biggest’ Crowd at Final Eras Tour Show in Sydney

Taylor Swift just finished one of the most massive legs of her touring career in Australia, playing for about 600,000 fans total across seven shows in the land down under. And at her final concert in Sydney’s Accor Stadium, the 34-year-old pop star shared Monday (Feb. 26) that she was blown away by the turnout.  

“Looking at this crowd, the biggest crowd we’ve had at our four shows here!” she gushed to an audience of more than 80,000 Swifties, according to local media site News.com.au. “You’re out here making me feel like I’m the first artist to play four shows at Accor Stadium!”  

Swift continued to marvel at her Sydney shows later in the set. “We have had the most wonderful time, I’ve got to tell you that,” she said. “You are here in one of the most exciting cities in the world, and you chose to hang out with us. You might be wondering if we ever get tired. A three-and-a-half-hour show — I don’t know if anyone told you that, buckle up. The answer is no.”

“Here’s what happens in our last show in a city,” she added. “We have been saving our energy for you.” 

Monday’s concert closes out four Eras shows at Accor, which followed Swift’s three-night stint at Melbourne’s Cricket Ground. The “Anti-Hero” singer’s Australian run featured announcements for both the “Bolter” and “Albatross” editions of her upcoming album The Tortured Poets Department, as well as several unprecedented mashups during her nightly surprise song sections. (At her finale concert in Sydney, she sang combos of “Would’ve Could’ve Should’ve” and “Ivy,” and “Forever & Always” and “Maroon.”) 

Swift’s Feb. 23 show marked the first Eras concert Travis Kelce has been able to attend since November, which the 14-time Grammy winner once again celebrated by changing her “Karma” lyrics to give the Kansas City Chiefs tight end a sweet shoutout. Instead of “Karma is the guy on the screen,” she belted, “Karma is the guy on the Chiefs,” while Kelce danced along near VIP tentmates Katy Perry and Rita Ora.
