For true Swifties, the news must have felt like the announcement of a second Christmas: As Taylor Swift (33) and the ticket provider Eventim announced on July 6th yesterday, it will be “due to overwhelming demand” for the current “The Eras Tour”. give the singer two additional dates in Germany.
Originally, only three concerts on German soil - in Hamburg, Munich and Gelsenkirchen - were scheduled for the European leg of the tour next year. After an additional concert was announced in Hamburg and Munich on July 5, Gelsenkirchen is now following suit. The pop singer will honor the Ruhr metropolis with a total of three guest performances. In addition to the original date of July 18, 2024, there will now be an additional concert in the Veltins Arena on July 17 and 19, 2024.
However, fans who decide spontaneously to visit the additional concerts will get nothing if they have not already gone through the "application process" for the previously planned dates. To do this, the candidates had to register on the Eventim website by June 23, 2023 at 11:59 p.m. According to Eventim, tickets were then sold "to randomly selected registered persons on the 'first come, first served' principle". In the next step, those chosen at random received a code and a date for the final advance ticket sale by e-mail and then had to hope to actually get hold of one of the tickets.
This means that only Swift fans who are already registered and who previously didn't get anything get another chance to be able to purchase a concert ticket for their favorite star. The corresponding e-mails from the ticket provider with individual access codes will be sent to the applicants between July 5th and 11th.
"The Eras Tour", which started on March 17, 2023 in the USA, is Taylor Swift's first international tour after the corona pandemic. According to the current status, the pop and country star will give a total of 131 concerts during his concert marathon, 48 of them in European cities.
