Taylor Swift continues to make history on her epic Eraserhead Tour. The singer broke an attendance record at Pittsburgh’s Acrisure Stadium when 73,117 fans flocked to her concert on Saturday, according to the venue. The impressive stat marks the stadium’s largest-ever audience in its history, topping the previous record held by Garth Brooks, who drew 72,887 in 2019.
The Pennsylvania native paid tribute to the Pittsburgh crowd in a message posted to her Instagram on Sunday. “Pittsburgh, thank you for making me feel so at home in my home state. I mean… You broke the all-time attendance record, and we got to be the first tour to play your stadium twice,” she said.
Saturday night’s concert was even more special when Swift brought out The National frontman Aaron Dessner to perform her surprise song “Seven” from the 2020 “Folklore” album that the pair collaborated on, according to concertgoers posting videos of the performance on social media. It was the first time Swift performed “Seven,” which includes lyrics that pay homage to her home state, in front of a live audience.
Taylor Swift’s record-breaking concert in Pittsburgh is just another example of her incredible talent and popularity. Fans are sure to continue flocking to her concerts as she continues her Eras Tour.
