PERTH, Western Australia - Taylor Swift fans in Perth, affectionately known as "Swifties," are expressing their disappointment as the pop superstar's latest Australian tour, 'Eras,' bypasses Western Australia.
The 'Eras' tour, named after Swift's recent re-recordings of her classic albums, has been a global sensation, with sold-out shows in major cities worldwide. However, Perth Swifties were left in the cold when the tour dates were announced, and Western Australia was noticeably absent from the list.
Swift, known for her intimate connection with her fans, has not commented on the omission. However, the disappointment among her Perth-based fans is palpable. Social media platforms have been flooded with messages from disheartened Swifties expressing their dismay at missing out on the much-anticipated tour.
One fan tweeted, "Can't believe Taylor isn't coming to Perth. We love her just as much as the rest of Australia. #PerthSwiftiesMatter." Another echoed the sentiment, saying, "It's so disappointing that we won't get to see Taylor perform her new 'Eras' songs live."
Despite the disappointment, Perth Swifties are holding out hope for a surprise announcement. Swift has a history of delighting her fans with unexpected tour dates and special performances. Her upcoming concert in Perth, unrelated to the 'Eras' tour, has been sold out for months, demonstrating the star's immense popularity in the region.
The upcoming concert, scheduled for later this year, will be Swift's first performance in Perth since her 'Reputation' tour in 2018. While it's not part of the 'Eras' tour, fans are hopeful that Swift might include some of her re-recorded hits in the setlist.
In the meantime, Perth Swifties are rallying together, sharing their favorite Taylor Swift memories and songs on social media, and hoping that their voices will reach the star. The hashtag #PerthSwiftiesMatter has been trending on Twitter, a testament to the strength and unity of Swift's fanbase in Western Australia.
While the 'Eras' tour may not be coming to Perth, the city's Swifties are proving that their love for the pop superstar is unwavering. As they eagerly await her upcoming concert, their message is clear: Taylor Swift is always welcome in Perth.
