Taylor Swift’s time in Liverpool may be over, but the US singer has left a lasting impression on the city.

Pop megastar Swift played the last of her three shows at Anfield on Saturday before her record-breaking Eras Tour moves on to Cardiff and Wembley. It has been the hottest ticket in town, with even former Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp returning to the ground especially for the occasion.

The shows have proven a huge success, with Swift breaking the attendance record at Anfield on her first night at the iconic stadium, with thousands upon thousands of ‘Swifties’ descending upon Merseyside over the past three nights.

And the singer’s fans left a touching tribute at Liverpool’s Hillsborough memorial. A number of bracelets were left at the monument at Anfield, which was built to commemorate the 97 supporters who lost their lives due to the Hillsborough disaster in 1989.

Swift brought her stay in Liverpool to an end on Saturday night, but not before another sensational show before her tour moves elsewhere. The singer was visibly moved by the atmosphere inside Anfield on her final night.

Following her performance of "Champagne Problems," Swift was stopped in her tracks by the applause from the crowd, prompting her to pause and soak in the adulation. In a touching moment, she took out her earpiece to fully embrace the roar from the crowd in L4.

She mouthed "That's loud" and visibly held back tears before taking to the mic to express her gratitude. She told the audience: "It's genuinely such an honor to play to crowds like this,” before adding: "I love you so much Liverpool, thank you."

Swift would shower more praise on the Anfield crowd, later telling them: "Liverpool just look at you. I've got to be honest, you're making me feel absolutely fantastic right now."
