Taylor Swift has officially announced that her Eras Tour is making its way to Canada, and while some fans are excited she's finally heading north, others are making it known that the country extends beyond Toronto.
The mega pop star announced on Thursday that she'll play a string of six shows at the Rogers Centre in 2024: three from Nov. 14 to 16, and then three more the following week between Nov. 21 and 23.
The downtown Toronto stadium has a capacity of more than 50,000 people, and it'll mark the first time an artist has played a six-stint show at the venue.
"Turns out it's not the end of an era," Swift shared on social media, along with tour dates for Miami, New Orleans and Indianapolis. "I miss you, I'm sorry" singer Gracie Abrams is also set to play the newly-announced shows.
Many fans have taken to social media to express their excitement that, after a long wait, Swift actually isn't snubbing Canada on her worldwide tour.

Apparently our Prime Minister can summon Taylor Swift

Some showed appreciation to Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau for enticing Swift to bring her tour north of the border.
In July, Trudeau invited Swift in a response on X (Twitter) to perform in Canada, a move that divided some into thinking it was a "sweet gesture" and others into believing he was an "Anti-Hero."
"It's me, hi," Trudeau's post began, referencing a lyric from Swift's song "Anti-Hero." "I know places in Canada would love to have you. So, don't make it another cruel summer. We hope to see you soon."
Other fans weren't impressed that Swift only announced Toronto dates, with many noting that Canada includes other large cities such as Vancouver and Montreal.
I’m so disappointed. I understand that Toronto is a big city to play in, but it’s not the only Canadian city🥺
Happy for all of the Ontario Swifties, but sad for all of the other Canadian Swifties that probably won’t be able to afford to fly to Toronto including myself. https://t.co/GXeRtYpUPX

Swift's Eras Tour, which the singer described as a journey through all her musical "eras," began earlier this year on March 17 in Glendale, Calif.
The tour's previous schedule left Canada entirely off its list of stops, while marking dozens of shows across North America, South America, Europe and Asia.
It's possible more late add-on dates could be tacked onto the tour, which is currently expected to end with the final Toronto show on Nov. 23, 2024. For instance, Edmonton was added as a stop nearly four months after on the singer's Red tour in 2013.
