December will mark the official end of an era — or, the end of the Eras tour. During Taylor Swift‘s recent performance in Liverpool, which marked the 100th show of the career-defining run, she confirmed that there won’t be any additional dates extending the show into 2024. The tour is currently scheduled to conclude on Dec. 8 — less than one week before the musician’s 35th birthday — with a final show in Vancouver.

“A lot of you are like, ‘How are you going to celebrate the 100th show?’ And for me, the celebration of the 100th show for me means this is the very first time I’ve ever acknowledged to myself and admitted that this tour is going to end in December, like that’s it,” Swift told the audience. “And that feels like so far away from now, but then again, it feels like we just played our first show on this tour, because you have made this so much fun for us.”

The Eras tour kicked off in March 2024 after being announced in November 2022. In December 2023, it became the highest-grossing tour of all time and the first to ever gross at least $1 billion. Millions of fans went through what Swift herself compared to a bear attack in order to secure tickets for at least one show, even if it meant traveling to another country, while others managed to attend dozens of shows. The live event, split into sections to honor almost every album Swift has released in her career, was released as a concert film in October 2023.

“I think that this tour has really become my entire life. Like, it’s taken over everything. I think I once had hobbies, but I don’t know what they were anymore,” Swift continued. “Because all I do when I’m not onstage is sit at home and try to think of clever acoustic song mashups, and think about what you might want to hear. When I’m not on the stage, I’m dreaming about being back on the stage with you guys. And you have done so much to be with us, right? You’ve made plans so far in advance, you planned what you were going to wear, you memorized lyrics, you got yourselves here, you figured out parking, you figured out transportation.”

She added: “I want to spend the 100th show just thinking about that and living in this moment with you — and being here with you. Just know that I appreciate every single ounce of effort that you’ve put into being with when this tour reaches triple digits of shows. So, thank you.”

Between now and December, Swift has 52 more shows on her schedule, including stops in England, Poland, Austria, the U.S., and Canada.

Earlier in the speech, which Swift delivered before playing “All Too Well (10 Minute Version),” the musician described the tour as: “the most exhausting, all-encompassing, but most joyful, most rewarding, most wonderful thing that has ever happened in my life.”
