Reason behind huge Taylor Swift queue in Melbourne

It’s no secret that the Eras tour has taken over Australia but now Taylor Swift fans are queuing outside one Melbourne venue to show their dedication to the singer.

Social media clips showed fans lining up outside Fineline Tattoos Melbourne in a bid to get one of the studio’s Swift-themed flash tattoos.

The studio, which has 23 designs to pick from, showed fans lined up around the block for a chance of snagging a walk-in appointment.

Social media fans have lost their mind over it, with one declaring that the Cardigan singer was the “best thing to happen to Melbourne”.

“Melbourne is four-and-a-half hours away. Should I,” one fan contemplated.

Another said: “I arrive from New Zealand today and I am heading straight over.”

Others described it as amazing but desperately wanted to know if there would be something similar in Sydney when Swift heads to Sydney next week.

Almost 100,000 fans gathered at Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG) on Friday night to watch the global megastar in her biggest concert to date – and she was blown away.

“If I seem a little bit like I’m losing my mind over the fact that there are 96,000 people here tonight … it’s because it’s true,” Swift told the crowd.

One fan who posted a video of the crowd to social media said “the entire MCG is VIOLENTLY shaking” and others showed Swift in stunned silence as she took in the incredible scenes.

Swift surprised fans in Melbourne as she announced a brand new song.

Swift, who is gearing up to release her new record, The Tortured Poets Department, in April, announced that a special edition version of the record with a new cover would feature track The Bolter.

Swift then gave heartbreaking insight into her reasoning behind making the record, and confessed that it was a “lifeline” for her through a particularly hard time in her life.

“I’m very excited for April 19th. I can’t wait for you to hear all the songs. Tortured Poets is an album I think, more than any album I’ve made, is one I needed. It was a lifeline for me. It reminded me why songwriting is something that gets me through life.”

The surprise announcement came after she confessed she was “starstruck” taking in the huge crowds in Melbourne.
