With the announcement of new dates, Taylor is now scheduled to perform on March 2, 3, 4, 7, 8, and 9 in 2024 for her only stop in Southeast Asia.
Aside from Singapore, Taylor will also stage four shows at the Tokyo Dome in Japan on February 7, 8, 9, and 10.
Based on her schedule, Taylor will bring her Eras concert to various parts of the world until August 2024.
“The Eras Tour,” which kicked off in March, is a tribute to all of the Grammy-award-winning performer’s albums, including her most recent, “Midnights,” and those which lacked their own tour due to the COVID-19 pandemic, such as “Lover,” “Folklore,” and “Evermore.”
Filipino Swifties clamor for PH stop
Amid this news, local Swifties remain unhappy and point out how Filipinos are some of Taylor’s top listeners in the world.
Some Filipino netizens who were quick to note that the Philippines was not listed among the show dates opted memeing about the lack of shows.
While several still are hopeful that the singer will add a stop in the Philippines in the coming months, fans also noticed how concert promoter AEG Presents Asia noted that the Singapore show is the “only stop in Southeast Asia.”
The dismay over the lack of PH stop affected not just the netizens but even some celebrities.
Kapuso star Barbie Forteza and influencer Ayn Bernos were among those who took their despair over the news on social media.
