Jürgen Klopp will be back at Anfield less than a month after saying goodbye. He and his wife Ulla will be in attendance at one leg of Taylor Swift's Eras Tour, which is being staged at Liverpool's home ground from June 13-15.

As far as concerts go, this is one of the hardest tickets to get hold of, with every leg of Swift's tour selling out amid massive global popularity. Anfield is used to even greater demand, not least for Klopp's farewell game against Wolves, but a seat in the ground to see the American singer is similarly coveted among certain circles.

No doubt there was a parallel struggle behind the scenes among venues to secure the lucrative gig. But Anfield won the day, likely netting Liverpool a significant windfall — and making it very practical for Klopp and Ulla to attend.

Speaking at a Q&A, per The Athletic, Klopp made the revelation he would be going to see Swift, after Ulla secured them both tickets. He even gave a brief rendition of Shake it Off.

It remains to be seen whether he takes in any of the magic of 'Taylor Town', a series of installations set up around the city to honor Swift. For much of his tenure as manager, he has stayed out of the center of Liverpool, given the stir he would cause — a level of fame to which the 'The Lucky One' star could certainly relate.

With so many Swift fans descending on the city, perhaps it's Klopp's best chance to get around relatively incognito. In any case, it's a nice window into the family life the departing Liverpool boss can now enjoy to the full, with this his first confirmed outing since calling it a day — although Ulla has already mandated some cooking and dance lessons too. says: Last time I was at a Taylor Swift gig, Emma Watson walked right past me. It has to be said that a Klopp sighting at Anfield would top even that.

Swift's music is a world away from the 'heavy metal' that Klopp once claimed inspires his football. But hopefully he enjoys the Eras Tour all the same — after all, he's taking up a sought-after spot.

Even if Swift puts in the performance of a lifetime, she'll struggle to top the rendition of 'You'll Never Walk Alone' with which the Kop serenaded Klopp in his last match at Anfield. Perhaps she should perform her own version.
