UPDATED 11/1, 8:45 a.m. ET: After much speculation, Taylor Swift has formally announced her return to touring following the record-setting rollout of her tenth studio album Midnights.

In updates shared to Twitter and Instagram on Tuesday, Swift told fans she was “enchanted” to announce her upcoming Eras Tour. The first leg of the tour sees Swift hitting a variety of stadiums across the U.S., complete with an assortment of special guests.

Among those confirmed to be joining Swift on select dates are Paramore, Beabadoobee, Phoebe Bridgers, Girl in Red, Haim, Muna, Gayle, Gracie Abrams, and Owenn.

See a full list of dates and additional info below. Per Swift, international dates will be announced soon.

Per Billboard, Swift has now become the first artist to take all 10 spots in a single week, besting Drake’s all-but-one week back in September of last year amid the Certified Lover Boy era.

“10 out of 10 of the Hot 100??? On my 10th album???” Swift told fans when reacting to the news on Monday, adding that the feat left her “in shambles.”

Other artists to have bagged multiple simultaneous Hot 100 top 10 entries in the past include The Beatles, who did so twice in 1964, and the late Juice WRLD. The latter saw five tracks from the posthumously released Legends Never Die charting in the top ten back in July 2020.

During a recent Tonight Show appearance, Swift hinted at possible plans for her first tour in years and further detailed the creative process behind Midnights, which she says is a “directly autobiographical” concept album.

“I’m feeling overwhelmed by the fans’ love for the record,” Swift said at the time. “I’m also feeling very soft and fragile. The two can exist at once.”
