    Taylor Swift Concludes First Round of Eras Tour with Rerecord News, Sparks Excitement

    After five months of nonstop touring, the first US leg of Taylor Swift‘s phenomenal Eras Tour has come to an end. Closing out the first batch of shows with six sold-out performances in Los Angeles, Taylor gave a final LA performance last night that was one for the history books.

    With this batch of shows ending on Aug. 9, aka 8/9, fans have been speculating for weeks about whether that meant she’d be announcing 1989 (Taylor’s Version) at the final LA show.

    And yesterday marked 8 years, 9 months, and 13 days since 1989 was released in 2014.

    Before the big announcement at last night’s concert, the clues just kept coming too, with Taylor wearing blue versions of several Eras Tour outfits — like a blue dress during the Speak Now and Folklore sections.

    Then Taylor took the stage before the surprise song portion of the set list, saying, “Since I was a teenager, I’ve wanted to own my own music, and the way to do that was to rerecord my albums. So now, here we are on the last night of the US leg of the Eras Tour, in the eighth month of the year, and the ninth day.”

    She added, “There’s something that I’ve been planning for a really, really, really, ridiculously embarrassingly long time. And I think instead of just, like, telling you about it, I think I’ll just sort of show you something I’ve been excited to show you.”

The 1989 album changed my life in countless ways, and it fills me with such excitement to announce that my version of it will be out October 27th.”
    She continued, “To be perfectly honest, this is my most FAVORITE re-record I’ve ever done because the 5 From The Vault tracks are so insane. I can’t believe they were ever left behind. But not for long!”
