It caused an earthquake in Seattle, and now it will shake fans in Europe. Taylor Swift has started a concert tour in which she will also visit Poland. Interestingly, the artist is followed not only by her millions of fans, but also by the effects typical of stars of this caliber. Where Swift comes into play – short-term rental prices are rapidly increasing by several hundred percent, which has a clear impact on inflation.

Taylor Swift is “the best” – and this statement is not only based on the subjective evaluation of fans, but on specific numbers. Her “The Eras Tour” attracts millions of people around the world, and she has earned a record-breaking over a billion dollars thanks to it. Moments before this achievement, she landed on the cover of Time magazine as Person of the Year. The star does not rest on its laurels. Now she has a chance to earn even more, because she started touring Europe on Thursday.

The star's European fans have been waiting for this moment for several years, so without hesitation they line up from the early hours of the morning to be as close to the stage as possible in the evening. – We want to be as close to the stage as possible.

The American singer will play several concerts in total at the Paris La Défense Arena stadium – day after day. The first one took place on Thursday, the last one will take place on Sunday. This is how the American begins the next part of her extraordinary story, in which the record will soon be replaced by another one. – Many Swift fans weren't able to get a ticket, so I'm very happy to have the chance to be here. It's amazing, I'm very grateful – admits Kenta, a Taylor Swift fan from Belgium. – My dream is coming true. I've been a fan of hers since I was a child, so it's great, says Lana, a Taylor Swift fan from France.

It's not cheap

Some fans followed Swift from all the way from the United States. It's apparently more profitable financially. This includes European regulations prohibiting huge margins on resold tickets. – We couldn't see her in America, we had to fly to Europe. It's cheaper and better here, says a Swift fan from the United States.

This is not an isolated situation. According to Bloomberg calculations, the number of American fans of Taylor Swift during a total of four concerts in the French capital will be five times greater than the number of American viewers at the Olympic Games, which will be held in Paris this summer. However, it is not cheap. Because wherever Swift appears, prices go crazy. And it's not just about tickets for the event itself. Polish fan, pop culture expert and influencer Patryk Wąsowski found out about this. – The prices of plane tickets and hotels are several times higher and I can say this based on my example, because I was supposed to return directly to Warsaw after the Paris concert, but my plane ticket was four times more expensive. That's why I'm in London and from here I'll be returning to Warsaw – says Patryk Wąsowski “Patryczon”, a pop culture expert and influencer.

Hoteliers and owners of short-term rental apartments know that a concert by such a star is an opportunity to make money. Taylor Swift will play three concerts in Warsaw – August first, second and third. A few months before the event, the effects are already visible. – Price offers go up to ten times – for example 2,000, 3,000 per night – standard rates. If we compare the weekend of August 1-3 with another weekend when there is no such a significant concert in Warsaw, the differences are so big. Of course, we are talking about locations around the stadium, but even in the distant Ursus or Włochy you can find offers that are several times higher than standard rates – points out Jan Dziekoński, a real estate market analyst from the FLTR.pl portal. After Paris, Swift will travel to Sweden, Portugal, Spain, Great Britain, Ireland, the Netherlands, Switzerland, Italy, Germany, Poland and Austria.

Since March 2023, “The Eras Tour” has traveled through Asia, North and South America. During concerts in Seattle, the artist's fans caused tremors recorded by seismologists.
