Taylor Swift’s Concert in Scotland Registers on Seismic Scales!

Yonhap News

Taylor Swift has been on her world tour, The Eras. It was reported that during her concert in Scotland, vibrations equivalent to an earthquake were detected.

According to CNN on the 13th, the British Geological Survey (BGS) stated that at the venue where Swift’s concert was held, vibrations strong enough to activate seismographs occurred every day for three days (from June 7).

The BGS is a national institution that informs and raises awareness of earthquakes among government, public, industry, and regulatory agencies. They also record the earthquakes to help in planning for future events.

The agency announced that during Swift’s performance at Murrayfield Stadium, “vibrations were detected at a research institute about 4 miles away from the concert venue.” They added, “This is scientifically recognized as an ‘earthquake’ level”, adding “The earth literally moved.”

This was due to fans stomping their feet and dancing to Swift’s songs. The biggest seismic activity was reported during popular songs like “…Ready For It?,” “Cruel Summer,” and “Champagne Problems.”

According to CNN, 73,000 Swift fans gathered for the concert on the 7th, which was reported to be the largest concert in Scottish history.

This is not the first time seismic vibrations occurred during Swift’s concerts.

During Swift’s concert at Lumen Field on July 22-23 last year, a stadium with a capacity of 70,000 seats in Seattle, Washington was at the center of vibrations equivalent to a magnitude 2.3 earthquake detected by nearby observatories.

Seismologists analyzed that the so-called “Swift Quake,” is stronger than the “Best Quake” from a Seattle Seahawks game at the same venue in 2011. At that time, when player Marshawn Lynch, nicknamed “Beast Mode,” scored a touchdown, the audience rose in unison to cheer, and a magnitude 2.0 earthquake was detected on the seismograph.

In December last year, Swift’s The Eras Tour surpassed $1 billion in total ticket revenue, setting a record for the highest revenue among pop star tour performances. The term Swiftomics even emerged as the economic effects of traffic, accommodation, and other consumer spending became prominent wherever Swift held a concert.

Swift announced on the 13th at her 100th Eras Tour concert in Liverpool that she will end the tour this December.
