Taylor Swift at Cardiff: how can you experience the magic without paying thousands for the ERAS Tour?

The prices for the concert at Principality reached a record high. But we are looking for ways to join Taylor on the tour without paying a fortune for the concerts.

Taylor Swift is set begin the UK leg of her ERAs Tour in Summer 2024.

Taylor Swift fans who struggled to purchase expensive tickets online can ease their disappointment thanks to the planned opening of a series of nights that promise to celebrate the acclaimed star.

The Swiftogeddon nights will happen in the run-up to Swift’s anticipated concert next June and promises to be much cheaper than the thousands being asked online.

“By the time I got into the queue, I realised that the ticket prices were too high for me to afford. I have been looking into Taylor Swift night parties to get the same type of experience at cheaper prices,” said Victoria, a student at Cardiff University.

Taylor Swift fans in Cardiff see their dreams shattering as the ERAS Tour at Principality reaches exorbitant prices for them to purchase. With concert tickets skyrocketing to as much as £850 per person, they are looking to reasonable alternatives in the city which might be just as fun.

Swiftogeddon is set to tour all around the UK, including Cardiff in June, 2024. This would also be the ideal pre-party to the official concert in Principality which will take place on 18 June, 2024.

Though the concert tickets started at just £180 when the general sale took off, it was sold out within an hour or two. On the other hand, the Swiftegeddon night passes are just £9, the perfect chance for Swifties to jam to the ‘Evermore’ and ‘Midnights’ tracks with their pals.

“Swiftogeddon is a night run by fans, for fans to come together and worship at the altar of Taylor Swift…,” promises the event giant to the massive fan following of pop sensation Taylor Swift in the UK.

Swift was the ‘2023 Person of the Year’ on TIME Magazine.

American singer-songwriter Taylor Alison Swift turned 34 this week and has recently featured on the cover of TIME magazine as the ‘2023 Person of the Year’. With a net worth of $1.1 billion, Swift has become the “main character of the world”, notes TIME as it records her unmatched success this year.

“I have been a Taylor Swift fan since I was 7 and heard “You Belong With Me” for the first time. Being part of the historic ERAS Tour at the principality this coming summer is like a dream come true,” said Sammy, 21, another Cardiff University student, who had her own Taylor Swift Instagram fan account as a young teenager.

The whopping prices of Swift tour tickets did not come as a shock to the music world. In a report, the LA Times noted how the high prices were not just for her popularity but also as it is at the ‘mercy of resellers’, making it almost impossible for the youth to purchase them.

If you are a Taylor Swift fan in Cardiff, and regret missing out on the tour at Principality, you can also join the ‘Swiftmas’ organised by the Cardiff Students’ Union this winter. This event, along with Swiftogeddon could be the perfect alternative on your missed opportunity.

“I would stand in front of the Principality Stadium at Cardiff on the day Taylor arrives for her tour concert,” said Lizzie, who was also unable to afford the tickets on Ticketmaster.
