Taylor Swift reveals she began planning Tortured Poets Department section of Eras Tour NINE months ago

Taylor Swift revealed during her second night performing in Paris that she has been working on The Tortured Poets Department segment of her Eras Tour since last year.

The 34-year-old singer — who has revamped her record-breaking tour — took a moment during her show to share details with her attentive audience.

‘We started planning this surprise for you about eight or nine months ago and then when we got “two months off” of the Eras Tour, we really didn’t take any time off at all.

‘We just went directly back into rehearsals. So I’d like to give it up for my crew, my dancers, and my band,’ she said during a break in the music.

The Tortured Poets Department was released on April 19 and is Taylor’s eleventh studio album.

It was teamed with matching knee high boots as she performed at the Paris La Defense Arena.
