Taylor Swift just dropped some serious cash vibes! She’s spreading major love to her ‘Eras Tour’ squad, hooking them up with mind-blowing bonuses totalling a whopping $55 million (£43 million). Tay-Tay showered her production truck champs – the ones hauling her gear to every epic show – with insane $100,000 (£77,000) bonuses each. But wait, there’s more!
She’s showing mad appreciation to the rest of her ‘Eras Tour’ dream team. The stage crew, the dancers, the tech wizards, the food wizards – you name it – they’re all getting a slice of the bonus pie.
With the US leg of the tour wrapping up at the legendary SoFi Stadium after crushing it in Glendale, Arizona and hitting up major cities all across the nation, Taylor’s hustle is already on track to be one for the history books. This tour’s flexing so hard, it’s rumoured to have banked over a cool $1 billion (£778 million). No wonder she’s throwing around those bonus bills like confetti!
While the exact stacks handed out to each crew member remain a mystery, the real deal was confirmed by none other than Michael Scherkenbach, the big cheese at Shomotion – the kings of transportation and logistics – who dropped the news bomb on LinkedIn.
“When [Taylor’s father] Scott Swift called the Shomotion LLC steel / stage drivers in for a meeting, this was the last thing they expected – THANK YOU,” he wrote in the update. “Words cannot express our gratitude for your appreciation, recognition and generosity!”
Bottom line? Taylor Swift is proving once again why she’s not just a pop icon, but a true boss lady, taking care of her crew and making her ‘Eras Tour’ a legendary spectacle.
After captivating fans across the United States, Swift is gearing up to take her musical journey across continents next year. Prepare for a whirlwind adventure as she graces stages in Europe, Asia, and Australia. The electrifying UK and European segment of the tour will kick off in the romantic city of Paris on May 9, 2024, and will reach its grand finale on August 17, 2024, in the dazzling city of London.
As the curtains draw to a close on the ‘Eras Tour,’ experts are already placing their bets that it will go down in history as the most financially triumphant tour ever seen in the music world. Swift’s 2023 live performances have been nothing short of spectacular, boasting astonishing 44-song setlists, a parade of mesmerizing outfit changes, and an impressive line-up of surprise guest appearances that have kept the headlines blazing.
Adding to the spectacle, reports surfaced over the weekend revealing that the sheer energy and enthusiasm of the crowd at her Seattle shows generated seismic ripples akin to a 2.3 magnitude earthquake. This seismic sensation unfolded as Swift’s tour took over Seattle’s iconic Lumen Field venue for two unforgettable nights on July 22-23.
