West coast Swifties' wildest dreams are coming true: Taylor Swift has announced three Vancouver dates in 2024. The global superstar, whose "Cruel Summer" currently sits atop the Hot 100, will be performing on December 6, 7 and 8 at BC Place with Gracie Abrams opening.

Swift hasn’t performed in Vancouver since 2015 and has released a wealth of new and re-recorded material in the intervening years, including the recently dropped 1989(Taylor’s Version). Luckily for fans, her Eras Tour goes much farther back than that, spanning the seventeen years and ten albums of her musical career, from her early days as a country songwriter to her rise to pop dominance.

Canadians have been concerned about missing out on the three-hour extravaganza. Initially, Swift had no Canadian dates lined up, and she's so significant an artist that the snub drew the attention of Prime Minister Justin Trudeau who tweeted at the star asking her to come to Canada. This summer, she added a massive six-date run in Toronto taking place in November of 2024. That will now be followed by the three Vancouver shows at BC Place.

In the meantime, Canadian Swifties have been dancing in the theatre at showings of the Eras Tour movie, which began screening on October 12 and had the biggest domestic opening ever for a concert film.

In cities where Swift makes a live appearance, tickets are notoriously difficult to come by — so difficult that Swifties launched a class-action lawsuit against Live Nation Entertainment. Vancouver fans can register now until Saturday November 4 at 5pm PST in order to pre-verify themselves for ticket purchases. Actual ticket sales begin on November 9, and fans who have pre-registered will be notified the day before as to whether they have been chosen for onsale or relegated to the waitlist.
