Taylor Swift’s Eras Tour has been one of the biggest pop music events of the last couple of years — and it’s only gotten bigger as Swift has taken the show across the world. More Swifties have been able to come out and see the pop icon as she’s bounced to and from every corner of the globe, playing massive sold-out stadiums in Europe, Latin America, and more. Even celebrities have turned out to catch the Eras tour in new countries and cities: Prince William stopped by with George and Charlotte in London, Blackpink’s Lisa hung out in Singapore, and Katy Perry sang along in Australia.

Along with some all-star attendees, the international leg of the tour has also been full of giant surprises, brand new song mash-ups, and onstage guests — including Travis Kelce himself, who made an appearance in Wembley. Here are the very best international moments of the tour.


Taylor Meets Prince William

Thanks to the Eras Tour, the world discovered Prince William is also a Swiftie. After attending the first night of Swift’s string of Wembley Stadium dates to ring in his 42nd birthday, the Prince of Wales — along with children George and Charlotte — posed for selfies with the pop megastar. While he shared one image on social media, Swift shared another, which featured her NFL beau Travis Kelce. Some luckier fans even saw Prince William rocking out to “Shake It Off” during the show. —I.K.


The Live Debut of “Crazier” After 15 Years

“You get extra credit points if you know this next song at all… It’s really old,” Swift quipped in Edinburg before breaking into a piano rendition of the love song “Crazier.” The track was included in the 2009 film Hannah Montana: The Movie. Since her cameo in the movie, Swift hasn’t played the song  live — until the Eras Tour. To make the live debut even better, Swift mashed up  “Crazier” with another flawless B-side, “All of the Girls” from the Lover era. It was a moment that left several Swifties in attendance, and offline, screaming and spinning around. —M.G.


Sabrina Carpenter Joins in Latin America and Asia

It’s impossible not to tie the beginning of Sabrina Carpenter’s pop dominance to her co-sign from Taylor Swift, so it made sense that for the Latin America and Asia run of the Eras Tour, Swift welcomed Carpenter onstage. “Espresso” and “Please Please Please” may have still been in the vault, but these performances let the Emails I Can’t Send pop star connect with Swift’s vast audience. And where better to connect to a devoted fanbase than in Latin America and Asia? —T.M.


Hugh Grant Thanks Taylor and Boyfriend

Hugh Grant had a night on the town with his family at the Eras Tour. While attending the second night of Swift’s Wembley Stadium concerts, he apparently enjoyed some tequila shots with the pop star’s boyfriend Travis Kelce and had fun with some friendship bracelets. After the show, Grant penned a sweet note to Swift on X that said, “Dear @taylorswift13 , You have an incredible show, an amazing and v hospitable team and excellent if gigantic boyfriend (#tequilashots.). Thanks so much from one ageing London boy, wife and thrilled 8 year old #halfgirlhalfbracelet.” —I.K.


Griff’s Debut at The Eras Tour

For more than three years, rising pop star Griff has been on Taylor Swift’s radar. Swift gave Griff’s stripped-down track “Shades of Yellow” a shoutout, the pair met and took a sweet photo together at the 2021 BRITs, and last fall, Swift promoted Griff’s single synth-pop anthem “Vertigo.” Fans suspected something could be brewing between the pair — and they were right. Griff opened the second night of her Wembley Stadium Eras Tour dates in London. For the special performance, Griff — who has made many of her costumes over the years — even crafted a dress in honor of Swift’s TTPD track “But Daddy I Love Him.” —I.K.


Tom Cruise Exchanges Friendship Bracelets

Tom Cruise left his action-hero career behind for one night to join the Swifties. The actor was spotted at night two of the Wembley Stadium Eras Tour dates where he could be seen enjoying the concert from the VIP tent. But like any good Swift fan, Cruise joined in on the fun and was seen exchanging friendship bracelets with fans. —I.K.


Gracie Abrams Returns to the Surprise Song Stage to Debut “Us”

Gracie Abrams spent most of 2023 as an Eras Tour opener, and fans kept wondering when the two would perform their new duet “Us.” On the third night of Swift’s Wembley run, Abrams was spotted in the VIP tent. She ended up joining Swift during the “surprise song” part of the show for a special piano-and-guitar performance of “Us.,” which appears on Abrams’ latest album The Story of Us. This marked the second time they’ve duetted together during the surprise song portion: Swift previously invited Abrams to sing “I Miss You, I’m Sorry” during a show in Ohio after weather forced Abrams’ opening slot to be cut that night. —B.S.


Katy Perry Sings Along to ‘Bad Blood’

During the Sydney stop of the Eras Tour in late February, Taylor Swift had an “old friend” in the audience: Katy Perry. The Teenage Dream singer shared a selfie video singing along to “Bad Blood,” the track Swift allegedly wrote about her while they were feuding and had been (as Swift told Rolling Stone in 2014) “straight-up enemies.” The pair even shared a photo together after the show: “Got to see an old friend shine tonight,” Perry wrote about Swift. —T.M.


Taylor Announces an Actual End to The Eras Tour

Even the best things must come to the end, and Swift acknowledged as much when she announced the official end of the Eras Tour. During the surprise song set in Liverpool, Swift announced that the tour would finish in December, after the second U.S. leg finishes. —M.G.
