Taylor Swift's Eras Tour in Paris Projected to Surpass 2024 Paris Olympics with Major Accomplishment

The Taylor Swift effect strikes again—and this time, it's taking over the City of Love.

While the music superstar takes her international Eras Tour to Paris, France this week, experts have already started to calculate the amount of traveling fans that the concert will bring to the French capital.

According to Bloomberg, the number of fans from the U.S. traveling to Paris to see the "Fortnight" songstress is projected to be five times more than the number of U.S. spectators at the 2024 Olympics, also being held in Paris later this summer.

The report comes from luxury travel agency Embark Beyond, which projects that even while the 2024 Olympics haven't started yet, the number of U.S. travelers to Paris to see Swift is so large, that even those planning to fly to Paris for the Olympics are unlikely to outnumber the jet-setting Swifties.

What's more, Swift's upcoming Paris shows will be taking place at La Defense Arena, which has a seating capacity of 40,000 per show, a "small fraction" of the size of the Olympic games, Bloomberg reports.

But apparently, the U.S. Swifties are just more ready to hop on a plane to see the Grammy winner perform in another country, especially after fighting tooth and nail to score the coveted Eras Tour tickets.

Some die-hard fans have even spoken out about the new report, insisting that the influx of U.S. fans traveling to Europe for the next leg of the tour could be due to the difficulty of securing tickets to North American shows, or because the resale prices to their local shows are astronomically high.

"It's currently cheaper to catch a 12 hour flight to Paris this weekend to experience The Eras Tour in France than it is to buy a resale ticket for any North American date," one fan claimed on X (formerly Twitter.)

"Yep...that's why we are going to Milan," another X user chimed in, while someone else added, "And that's why I'm going to see her in Sweden."

Traveling to different countries to see the show has become somewhat of a new trend with the Eras Tour, especially now that Swift has released her newest album, The Tortured Poets Department, which is highly suspected to be getting added to the show's already over 3-hour long setlist.

Swift will take the stage at La Defense Arena in Paris on May 9, 10, 11 and 12, before heading to Stockholm, Sweden the following week.
