The Eras Tour is poised to inject nearly $1.26 billion (£1 billion) into the UK economy this year, as over a million fans prepare to witness the pop sensation's live performances, according to new data.

With 15 dates scheduled in June and August across the UK, fans are projected to spend an average of $1069 (£848) on tickets, travel, accommodation, and attire, as reported by Barclays. This analysis underscores the significant economic impact of the pop star's tour, exemplifying the phenomenon known as "Swiftonomics."

When tickets for the Eras Tour initially went on sale in 2023, the surge in demand caused website crashes and resulted in fully booked hotels in host cities worldwide. Her concerts in Seattle apparently caused seismic activity akin to a 2.3 magnitude earthquake.

Swift's recent debut on the Forbes Billionaires List list further solidifies her stature as a powerhouse in the music industry and beyond, as she continues to captivate audiences globally with her chart-topping hits like 'Shake It Off' and 'Cruel Summer.'

Lando Norris couldn't resist some light-hearted banter aimed at Kelce, particularly after the NFL star's investment in a rival Formula 1 team.

Following his impressive victory at the Miami Grand Prix, Norris found himself in the limelight, with congratulations pouring in from fans and celebrities alike. During an appearance on BBC Radio 1 to celebrate his maiden win, host Greg James brought up Kelce's name among the celebrities who reached out to Norris.

In response, Norris playfully quipped about Kelce's investment choices, joking that he had "invested in the wrong team" by choosing Alpine over McLaren. While McLaren has seen a surge in performance, Alpine has faced challenges, earning just one point this season.

Despite the jest, Norris shared positive sentiments about Kelce, mentioning their encounter at a dinner after the race. He described Kelce as an "awesome guy" and expressed a hope to attend one of his games or even a Swift concert, given Kelce's relationship with the superstar.
