Kiwi Swifties have been left heartbroken. Taylor Swift has decided not to take her Eras Tour to New Zealand.
Several fans have said they are experiencing ‘mega FOMO’ while the star performs in Australia and are hopeful he will stop by their country to at least enjoy the picturesque scenery.
Wellington local Tessa Paddy told news.com.au: “I was hoping we would be on the list when they started posting all the tour dates.”
“When he came to Australia and this region, to be honest, at first I thought he was just sorting things out and would make the announcement about Auckland and Wellington… but he never came.”
The superfan tried to get tickets to the Melbourne and Sydney shows but said they were too expensive.

“New Zealand doesn’t have a big enough venue, that’s probably the main problem, both because of the size of the Eras Tour production and the demand,” wrote one Facebook user.
Tourism New Zealand’s Andrew Waddel debunked this idea, telling news.com.au: ‘Aotearoa (New Zealand) has a great reputation for hosting world-class events. Last year we co-hosted the FIFA Women’s World Cup and welcomed thousands of manuhiri (visitors) across the North Island and South Island.
