3 Ways Taylor Swift’s Eras Tour Has Been a Force of Nature

Taylor Swift has had a whirlwind year. She announced two re-recordings and has made headlines for her donations to food banks and giving $55-million in bonuses to crew members working on her tour, but the year’s not yet over. 

This month, she’s taking her Eras Tour international and if it continues the way it has domestically, there’s bound to be phenomenal activity both figuratively and literally. 

Last month, Jackie Caplan-Auerbach, a seismologist at Western Washington University, discovered that Swift’s show at Seattle’s Lumen Field on July 28 caused seismic activity equal to a 2.3 magnitude earthquake. 

In what is now being dubbed the “Swift Quake,” seismologists said that seismometers pick up a variety of ground vibrations, including that of dancing at a concert. Talk about shaking it off.

The Swift Quake is being compared to the 2011 Beast Quake when Marshawn Lynch had a post-season touchdown, that caused similar activity in the area. 

Though “causing” an earthquake by getting your fans to dance is a pretty impressive feat, there were a number of exciting moments from the Eras Tour that can’t be reenacted at an indoor concert venue.

Any dedicated Swiftie knows how much Taylor Swift loves a good rain show, and during the Eras Tour we were blessed with not one, but two impressive performances that made fans want to “drop everything now,” and meet her “in the pouring rain.” 

Her show on May 7 in Nashville was delayed four hours, as fans sheltered in place. Swift didn’t take the stage until about 10 PM. The second was on May 20 in Foxborough, Massachusetts, during her 21st performance at Gillette Stadium.

The Lightning That Was a Paid Actor

During the previously aforementioned Nashville rain show, Taylor Swift might have paid off the gods for this amazing moment during her song “I Knew You Were Trouble,” in which lightning strikes as she begins the final chorus of the song. Could this have been the first Easter Egg to her releasing 1989 (Taylor’s Version)

We can’t wait to welcome Taylor back to the U.S. for her second leg of the North American tour in 2024. And we really can’t wait to see what impressive geological and meteorological events she brings with her.
