European Taylor Swift enthusiasts won’t need to scrutinize the fine print on a grid to discern who will be the opening act on which nights during the “Eras Tour” next year, as American fans did this year. Swift revealed on Wednesday that Paramore will be the opening act for her entire European tour.

In addition, she announced the addition of 14 shows to the lineup, all representing second, third, fourth, or even sixth nights in cities that were already on the itinerary for May through August of 2024.
“Really can’t contain my excitement because… we’re adding 14 new shows to The Eras Tour,” Swift shared on social media. “And I get to travel the world doing shows with Paramore!! Hayley and I have been friends since we were teens in Nashville, and now we get to frolic around the UK/Europe next summer??? I’m screaming???”
The additional dates for Swift’s U.K./Europe tour include: a fourth night in Paris on May 12, 2024; a third night in Stockholm, Sweden on May 19; a second night in Portugal, Lisbon on May 25; a second night in Lyon, France on June 3; a third night in Edinburgh in the U.K. on June 9; a third night in Liverpool on June 13; a sixth night in London on June 23; a third night in Dublin, Ireland on June 30; a third night in Amsterdam in the Netherlands on July 4; a second night in Milan, Italy on July 14; a second and third night in Gelsenkirchen, Germany on July 17 and 19; a third night in Warsaw, Poland on Aug. 1; and a third night in Vienna, Austria on Aug. 8.
While it’s now confirmed that Paramore will be the direct support for Swift’s entire European run, the question remains whether there will be a third artist on the bill for all those venues and, if so, who that might be.
Sabrina Carpenter was recently announced as the opening act for Swift’s shows in Melbourne, Sydney, and Singapore, taking place from Feb. 16 through March 9, 2024. Carpenter will also be opening for Swift’s Latin American shows from late August through late November of this year.
Swift’s U.S. tour is still ongoing, concluding with a finale at the L.A. area’s SoFi Stadium on Aug. 9. Abrams, Haim, Gayle, Muna, and Owenn are among the opening acts for the remaining U.S. dates.
In the U.S., Paramore opened the first two nights of the tour in Glendale, Arizona, before the band embarked on their own headlining dates in support of the February album “This Is Why,” their first release in six years.
Swift’s latest album, “Speak Now (Taylor’s Version),” is set to release Thursday night.
