Smith Gives Swift Some Major Props

“That’s the best concert I’ve ever been to in my life,” Smith said. “Excuse my language, but that shit was off the chain. Taylor Swift brought the damn house down. I was jamming to Taylor Swift. She was sensational. I’d pay to see her again. Seriously, I’m not joking. She was a superstar that night. That girl is special.” That's very high praise from the often hard-to-please Smith.

After the concerts in Mexico and South America, Swift shuts up shop for the winter. She returns to the concert circuit in February 2024 with an Asian leg across Japan, Australia, and Singapore. She then heads to Europe between May and August. Finally, she concludes the whole tour with more shows in the US and Canada. The tour concludes with six shows in the Rogers Center in Toronto.
