I spent $1,300 to see Taylor Swift 3 times in the US, and I’m seeing her 5 more times in Europe for the same price

I’ve gone to The Eras Tour multiple times this past summer — and I have tickets to five more of Taylor Swift’s shows in Europe next year.

Even if I share that Swift’s music has had a priceless impact on 11 years of my life, most people still can’t fathom why anyone would spend money on a show they’ve already seen. To be honest, I didn’t originally intend to go to this many shows — but I don’t have any regrets.

I flew to two US cities to see Swift perform the first leg of The Eras Tour

When Swift announced the US leg of The Eras Tour last November, I wasn’t willing to wait for international dates. I currently live in Milan, Italy, but was raised in Los Angeles so I was comfortable saving some money and traveling to the US for the tour.

Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to get any tickets for a US show on my own. After waiting in Ticketmaster’s online queue for over six hours, I left the first round of sales empty-handed. I desperately started looking for tickets, trying to avoid resale sites at all costs.

After a few days of seeking tickets on my Instagram and TikTok accounts, one of my online friends sold me a VIP floor ticket for a show at New Jersey’s MetLife Stadium in May for $900. I didn’t hesitate to dish out the cash. A chance to go to The Eras Tour even once was worth almost any price.

A few days later, I was selected for Ticketmaster’s special Verified Fan sale and I snagged a lower-bowl seat for another night at MetLife Stadium for $240. Then, one of my college friends from Los Angeles sold me a $150 nosebleed ticket for one of the SoFi Stadium shows in August.

In total, I spent nearly $1,300 on US tickets. My flight from Milan to New York was $650 and my weeklong hotel stay was $3,000. The flight to Los Angeles was $950 but I stayed with family. And in true Swiftie fashion, I also spent about $180 total on three different outfits for each show.

When I learned about the European leg, I came up with a strategy to get as many tickets as possible

When Swift announced the European leg of the tour, I knew I had to see her perform again.

I stuck to a budget of around $1,300 for tickets and got to work. This time, the ticket-buying experience was rough but manageable. I signed up for presale codes for the cities I was interested in and was lucky enough to get through the queues in less than one hour for each of them.

Staying within my budget, I landed some of the best seats in the house for five different shows for the summer of 2024. I bought a pit ticket in Paris for 98 euros, two VIP floor seats in Milan for 420 euros each, and a front-facing lower bowl seat for £170 and a pit ticket for £128 in London.

I also plan on spending about half of what I paid for flights and hotels in the US. For starters, flying from Milan to other parts of Europe is more affordable than going from Milan to the US. My hotel stays will also be shorter since I’m not traveling as far. I expect to spend about $130 per flight to London and Paris and about $1,000 total for my hotels.

Is Swift worth all of this? Well, I think she’s the best songwriter of my generation, and she’s making music history as we speak. But seeing The Eras Tour isn’t just about about her. It’s also about the joy and memories she consistently brings into my life.
