There's no denying that Taylor Swift's Eras Tour is one of the most in-demand concerts of all time. Not only have all the tour dates sold out but Ticketmaster also crashed during the first sale.

Taylor Swift's opening acts vary throughout The Eras Tour so we recommend that you get to the venue with plenty of time to spare if you want to see who is supporting her. If you just want to see Taylor, we advise that you arrive an hour before she is due to take to the stage. That way you should be able to get through security and find your seat before she starts.

On dates where Taylor performs the full Eras Tour setlist, the concert is 3 hours and 15 minutes long. However, Taylor often has surprises at her shows and in some cases the concerts have lasted as long as 3 hours and 45 minutes.
