Music news: Taylor Swift and Paramore need to be on your must-see tour list

A Taylor Swift and Paramore tour? Yes, please! But you'll have to get your passport ready to see the shows (if you live in the United States, that is). If you don't, then you've got a good thing coming your way.

Taylor Swift tweeted on Wednesday that she will be joined on all 48 dates of the UK/Europe leg of The Eras Tour. The tour doesn't begin until next May, however, so hopefully Ticketmaster (or wherever one buys tickets for the European part of Taylor Swift's tour) will have their stuff figured out by then.

And if you do live in the United States, this is a win-win for you. You can try going to see Taylor and Paramore, but you can also go to see them in Europe! That sounds like a bit of a dream, doesn't it?

Taylor Swift and Paramore to tour Europe together in 2024

The tour will begin in Paris and there will be four shows there from May 9th through the 12th. After that, the tour swings through the rest of Europe, Ireland, and the UK before finishing with three shows at Wembley Stadium in London. There will actually be six (!) total shows at Wembley so maybe just take the summer off, stay in London for a few months, see Taylor and Paramore, and then wait for the tour to roll back around again.

It appears that Taylor has a long-time pal in Paramore's Hayley Williams as they met growing up. Both spent some of their teens in Nashville, Tennessee. Paramore started off as a much more straight-ahead rock band but some of their more recent sound lends itself to being a bit more like Taylor Swift. Or Taylor Swift sounds more like Paramore. You get the picture.

Paramore appears set to join Taylor Swift on stage during the shows for Taylor's song, "Castles Crumbling." The song will also appear on Taylor's revamp album, Speak Now (Taylor’s Version), which comes out on Friday. But you likely already knew that.
