Taylor Swift announces extra support acts for London ‘Eras’ tour dates

Taylor Swift has confirmed extra support acts for her London ‘Eras’ tour dates next month.

Swift will be performing three shows at Wembley Stadium between June 21-23 as part of her world tour and, to celebrate her song ‘Fortnight’ topping the UK Airplay Chart, has now confirmed that three other artists will be opening for her alongside Paramore.

Joining them will be Mette on June 21, Griff on June 22 and Benson Boone in June 23.

Announcing the new supports on Instagram, Swift wrote: “I just found out Fortnight is #1 on the UK airplay chart!!!! You guys are amazing and I can’t wait to see you so soon! Thought this might be a fun time to announce the first group of opening acts I’ll be adding to the London shows, going on before Paramore.

“I chose artists whose music I love listening to, and I can’t wait for them to add an extra jolt of excitement to our shows at Wembley Stadium in June.”

In response to the news, Griff wrote on X/Twitter: “TAYLOR SWIFT HAS INVITED ME ON THE ERAS TOUR!!!!!! 8 yr old me who had fearless on repeat wouldn’t believe this. So unbelievably grateful to Taylor for all the love she’s shown me and my music. See you at Wembley on June 22nd”.

Mette added: “It’s a new ERA for ya girl… Opening the “Taylor Swift | The Eras Tour” on June 21st at Wembley Stadium in London. Thank you @taylorswift13 – Never been so excited in my entire life!!! #TSTheErasTour”

Swift will return to Wembley Stadium for five more shows between August 15-20. It has not yet been confirmed if there will be any extra support acts for those shows.

The singer is currently playing shows elsewhere in Europe and, during a show in Lisbon, she performed the title track from her new album ‘The Tortured Poets Department’ for the first time.

The track was played as part of the ‘surprise songs’ segment of the ‘Eras’ tour and Swift switched things up by performing it on acoustic guitar.

“This has become a tradition on the Eras Tour where this part of the show I try and be very creative and try to think of things you might want to hear, and I always do a different thing on the guitar and a different thing on the piano,” Swift said. “So this is actually the first time I’m ever playing this one live.”

The song’s outro, meanwhile, featured a nod to one of ‘1989 (Taylor’s Version)’s vault tracks, ‘Now That We Don’t Talk’.

The second song in the ‘surprise song’ segment was a mash up of ‘You’re On Your Own Kid’ from ‘Midnights’ and ‘Long Live’ from ‘Speak Now’.
