Pop superstar Taylor Swift has reportedly paid her caterers, truck drivers, riggers, dancers, and more workers who helped in her Eras Tour millions of dollars.
Taylor Swift is an American Grammy-winning singer-songwriter.
Born Taylor Alison Swift, she is recognized for her songwriting, musical versatility, artistic reinventions, and influence on the music industry, she is a prominent cultural figure of the 21st century.
In 2023, almost all her headlines have been about her Eras tour. The pop star kicked off her tour in March in Glendale, Arizona, dazzling fans with a career-spanning 44-song setlist. Since then, her concerts have drawn famous friends and faces including Miles Teller, Drew Barrymore, Reese Witherspoon, Gigi Hadid, Paul Rudd, and more.
There are reports about the staggering figure she paid her workers who help her through her tour, including caterers, truck drivers, riggers, dancers, and more. So, how much money did Taylor Swift pay her workers? Read on for more.
How much did Taylor Swift pay her workers on her The Eras Tour?
The American singer who is worth around $600 million recently gave bonuses totaling over $55 million to everyone (from her dancers to riggers, sound technicians, and catering, among others) working on her massive show.
TMZ previously reported that Swift, 33, gifted truckers on her tour $100,000 each ahead of her concert stop in Santa Clara over the weekend.
In June, Swift announced she would be heading across the pond — and around the world — in 2024 for shows across Europe, Asia, and Australia. The singer announced her first international leg of shows in Latin America earlier in the month, teasing that there were “LOTS” more dates to come.
Amid the release of her latest re-recording, Speak Now (Taylor’s Version), Swift surprised fans at her Kansas City tour stop, bringing out Joey King, Presley Cash and Taylor Lautner onstage after unveiling her new music video for the vault track “I Can See You.”
In the action-packed music video, the trio help Swift take back her third studio album. (King and Presley made appearances in Swift’s 2011 “Mean” music video, while Swift and Lautner — who inspired “Back to December” — briefly dated after costarring in Valentine’s Day over a decade ago.)
“I recorded this album when I was 32 (and still growing up, now) and the memories it brought back filled me with nostalgia and appreciation. For life, for you, for the fact that I get to reclaim my work. Thank you a million times, for the memories that break our fall,” she wrote on Instagram upon the record’s release.
