Liverpool's iconic stadium Anfield hasn't just been the setting for memorable football moments, but also musical as well. Anfield has hosted numerous concerts down the years, with superstars such as Elton John, The Rolling Stones, Pink, Take That, Bon Jovi and The Eagles all using the stadium in recent years.

The latest megastar to use Anfield as the backdrop for a music concert is Taylor Swift. The 34-year-old is currently in the midst of her 'Eras' tour set of shows across Europe and the US.

Swift will play at Anfield three times, from Thursday June 13 to Saturday June 15, and hundreds of thousands of fans will be in attendance over the course of the three nights.

The global Eras tour kicked off in March 2023 in Arizona, before heading across the United States and Europe. The Liverpool shows will be her 100th of the tour, and a big surprise is expected to mark the occasion.

According to The Washington Post, Swift is set to make a mountain of money by the time her tour is finished, which is slated to end in December. The Post claims that Swift is set to keep 85% of the revenue for each and every show she performs, amounting to a figure between $10m (£7m/€9m) and $13m (£10m/€12m) per night.

Swift has already completed the North and South American leg of her tour, as well as dates in Japan, Australia and Singapore. However, once her stint in Europe is complete she will return to the US and Canada to round off the tour with a handful of dates.

Swift's three dates at Anfield next week could see her walk away with a figure between $26m (£21m/€24m) and $38m (£30m/€35m). Not even Liverpool's best-paid players earn that amount in a single year of football, showing just how much Swift earns per concert.

Swift's net worth is said to exceed $1bn, with current estimates putting her worth at some $1.3bn (£1bn/€1.2bn).

Liverpool.com says: Taylor Swift is one of the shrewdest musicians on the planet, and has wrestled a lot of control away from the music companies that tend to exploit musicians early in their careers. The fact that she stands to earn more than every Liverpool player for three dates at Anfield is extraordinary, and a testament to her business savvy.
