Taylor Swift Teases a Potential Midnights Tour

Taylor Swift is officially taking “Midnights” on the road. During the filming of an episode of “The Graham Norton Show” set to air Oct. 28, per People, Swift confirmed that a tour is definitely in the works. “We will sometime soonish. It’s going to happen,” Swift said. “We will do it and it will be great.” She didn’t provide any additional details, but thanked fans for their support on her new album. “I do think it’s a little accusatory when people say I broke Spotify,” she joked, referencing the fact that her album smashed the platform’s record to become its most-streamed album in one day. “It was my gorgeous fans that broke Spotify!”

Previously, Swift teased the tour during an Oct. 24 appearance on “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon,” when the late-night talk-show host pressed an answer out of the “Bejeweled” singer after pointing out the fact that she hasn’t toured in four years.

“We want you to,” said Fallon, to which Swift replied, “I think I should do it.” Fallon added: “When it’s time, you’ll let us know.” “When it’s time, we’ll do it,” Swift said, confirming his statement, before she added how much she misses seeing her fans IRL.

“I miss it, I really miss it,” she shared. “I miss when you write songs and you’re proud of the songs, and you have the fans reacting. The most potent way that you can see them react is when you’re looking into their faces. I miss that a lot. I really miss that connection.”

Swift’s record-breaking “Midnights” album dropped on Oct. 21 and has received rave reviews from fans and big-name stars alike, including Janet Jackson. Between teasing pieces of the album leading up to its release — including the track list — and slowly releasing music videos for “Midnights”‘s songs, it appears Swift will be taking her time with her latest album rollout.

Swift first announced “Midnights” while accepting an award at the 2022 MTV VMAs on Aug. 28, sharing its album cover in an Instagram post later that evening. “We lie awake in love and in fear, in turmoil and in tears. We stare at walls and drink until they speak back. We twist in our self-made cages and pray that we aren’t – right this minute – about to make some fateful life-altering mistake,” she wrote in the post. “This is a collection of music written in the middle of the night, a journey through terrors and sweet dreams. The floors we pace and the demons we face. For all of us who have tossed and turned and decided to keep the lanterns lit and go searching – hoping that just maybe, when the clock strikes twelve … we’ll meet ourselves.”

While fans wait for tickets to become available, there are still plenty of “Midnights” drops to look forward to in the meantime. According to the musician, she plans to release a series of “‘Midnights’ music movies” she worked on with cinematographer Rina Yang. So far, the visuals have featured cameos from Laura Dern, Dita Von Teese, frequent collaborators Jack Antonoff and the Haim sisters, and more.

Taylor Swift breaks UK chart records with Midnights
Taylor Swift has been celebrating after securing the coveted double chart domination after her album Midnights and its lead single Anti-Hero both landed at number one.

The Shake It Off hitmaker pipped the Arctic Monkeys to the top spot, with her tenth LP smashing a series of UK chart records.

The electronica-style album has become the fastest-selling album of the year so far, overtaking Harry Styles’ chart-topping Harry’s House which previously held the 2022 title.

Midnights also claims the biggest first week of album sales since Adele’s 30 was released last November and takes the title of the most streamed album of the year in its opening week with 72.5 million streams across the seven days.

It is also Taylor’s highest-selling album in the UK, racking up 204,000 chart sales in seven days, more than doubling her previous personal best of 90,300 which she achieved with her album 1989, released in 2014.

The 32-year-old overtakes Madonna to set a new official chart record by achieving the fastest succession of nine UK number one albums of any female artist.

Meanwhile, Midnights’ lead single Anti-Hero has also risen to the top spot after the video sparked backlash for being ‘fatphobic.’
The scene in question sees the Red singer standing on a set of weighing scales as her inner critic, played by Taylor herself, watches next to her, with the scales reading ‘fat.’

The word appeared to be edited out from several version of the music vid, which Taylor had previously explained depicts ‘‘nightmare scenarios and intrusive thoughts’, although fans have been divided about the decision.

Some listeners labelled it the right move considering the upset it has caused, while others pointed out that it was a personal moment for the singer to highlight her own struggle with body image.

Taylor has been in the UK this week promoting Midnights, surprising Bon Iver fans at a concert in London on Wednesday night and performing their hit Exile, from her album Folkore.

The star, who is dating British actor Joe Alwyn, will also appear on Friday’s The Graham Norton Show, where she will spill the beans about an awkward screen test with Eddie Redmayne.
