It’s a blockbuster collaboration between two of the best in the world, and there are very few forces that can stop it. Taylor Swift, one of the world’s most popular singers, is tied up with Real Madrid to perform her Eras tour at their throne, Santiago Bernabeu. If this isn’t enough to explode, there has been a recent revelation about this epic. According to reports, Swift’s upcoming performance has received approval to add another concert to the schedule.

The American singer has been making waves in the world of sports. The singer boosted the NFL’s viewership recently and helped generate a lot of revenue. Now the star is having a similar effect on Real Madrid.

Swift’s concert is scheduled for May 30th this year at the newly renovated stadium, which has already been receiving various hosting requests apart from soccer. However, due to the demand of affluent fans, Swift will host another concert on May 29th, which will require expedited preparation. Hence, Real Madrid’s last game scheduled for May 26 could be pulled back to May 25.

Ideally, the All Too Well singer’s concert set-up requires three days, hence the request to move the game to a day earlier. Additionally, La Liga makes provision for its club to make extra revenue through such opportunities, with previous instances of allowing Atlético de Madrid to host rock legends, the Rolling Stones.

Meanwhile, Swift, with her ‘Spill Over’ effect, attracted fans to follow football after dating Travis Kelce. She has now weaned her magic on soccer, forcing the Los Blancos to end their campaign a day early.

Real Madrid closing in on winning La Liga

Swift’s concert could just be a cherry on top for the Whites. The club is leading the La Liga table by 5 points with a game in hand and could celebrate the win with Swift’s concert in their den. Even though there are no reports, the concert in Madrid could attract a few stars to watch it.
