Published 06/05/2024, 8:32 PM EDT

What began in March 2023 in Arizona has since enveloped the globe in a kaleidoscope of enchantment, with no end in sight. 'The Eras Tour' curated to perfection by Taylor Swift is suspected to have some kind of magnet, as at every stop it manages to create history. As if the attendance of a barrage of celebrities was not enough of an indicator, now the cities themselves have come to echo its significance.

While earlier an Eras Tour would usually make the record for the largest number of concert goers a city's stadium had received, Edinburgh begged to differ in suavest fashion.

Taylor Swift and the promise of her performing some of the most iconic tracks from her discography, ensuring that everyone is in a frenzy to get to the concert, is no surprise. But it seems even for a starlet like Taylor Swift, who is breaking records left and right, the impact might have been underestimated, especially as the tram in Scotland's Edinburg gets a ' The Tortured Poets Department' themed glow-up.

As the songstress returned to Scotland after nearly a decade, the country could not have found a better way to show how much they had missed her. Moreover, the fact that they ditched the purple, significant to the Grammy-winning artist's Eras Tour, and went for the black and bold look of her recent album is a masterclass in Taylor Swift's adulation.
