The Swifties were out in full force and caused earthquakes during Taylor Swift‘s “Eras” tour shows in Edinburgh, Scotland.

British Geological Survey revealed that the Swifties shook the ground in Edinburgh, Scotland, during the shows. She played three shows at Scottish Gas Murrayfield Stadium.

During these shows, earthquake readings were detected up to 6 kilometers from the stadium. That is about 3.73 miles out from the stadium. The Friday, June 7, show was the biggest show in terms of maximum amplitude of motion.

The biggest movements came during Swift's performances of “Ready For It?,” “Cruel Summer,” and “Champagne Problems.” Ironically, “Cruel Summer” is the second song played during every “Eras” tour show. “Ready For It?” comes later in the set during the Reputation era and “Champagne Problems” comes soon after during the Folklore and Evermore sets.

Per BGS, “The activity was mainly generated by fans dancing in time to the music and reached its peak at 160 beats per minute (bpm) during ‘Ready For It?’, where the crowd was transmitting approximately 80 kW of power (equivalent to around 10-16 car batteries.”

BGS Seismologist Callum Harrison weighed in on Taylor Swift fans causing earthquakes.

“BGS is the national body responsible for recording earthquakes to inform the Government, public, industry, and regulators, and allow for a greater understanding of earthquake risk and plan for future events,” Harrison said. “It’s amazing that we’ve been able to measure the reaction of thousands of concertgoers remotely through our data. The opportunity to explore a seismic activity created by a different kind of phenomenon has been a thrill.

“Clearly Scotland’s reputation for providing some of the most enthusiastic audiences remains well intact!” Harrison continued.

Currently, Swift is knee-deep in the European leg of her “Eras” tour. The “Eras” tour commenced in March 2023 and Swift took the tour across North America through the summer. She closed out the year by playing shows in Mexico, Argentina, and Brazil.

In 2024, Swift picked the tour back up with shows in Japan, Australia, and Singapore before taking a two-month break. The European leg of the “Eras” tour began on May 9 with a show in France. Throughout the 2024 summer, Swift will take the “Eras” tour across all of Europe.

This current leg of the tour will conclude with a five-night residency at Wembley Stadium in London, England. She will then return to the United States for nine shows in Florida, Louisiana, and Indiana. The “Eras” tour is slated to conclude with nine shows in Canada.

Taylor Swift has been busy in the studio in addition to touring. Recently, she has released a lot of music. Since 2020, Swift has released five studio albums of new music.

Her recent album Midnights won two Grammys — Best Pop Vocal Album and Album of the Year. During her acceptance speech for the former award, Swift announced her next album: The Tortured Poets Department.

The Tortured Poets Department came out on April 19, 2024. Just hours after it dropped, Swift released a deluxe edition of the album with 15 more songs.

In addition to her new music, Swift has re-recorded four albums for her (Taylor's Version) collection. These began with Fearless in 2021 and Red, Speak Now, and 1989 followed. Her self-titled debut album and Reputation are the only albums left to re-record from Big Machine Records.
