As the U.S. leg of Taylor Swift’s Eras Tour officially wraps up, she is ensuring that no one leaves feeling unappreciated.
Swift is spreading love and appreciation to her dedicated truckers who have been a vital part in her Eras tour across the United States. Swift has shown her gratitude by generously granting them a substantial $100,000 raise for their efforts in transporting her elaborate stage setup over the past few months.
According to TMZ, these bonuses were handed out following the singer’s performances in Santa Clara on Saturday, July 29, at Levi’s Stadium.
As per the insider’s information, close to 50 truckers were engaged in transporting equipment for the tour, resulting in Swift generously giving out a substantial sum of nearly $5 million.

Taylor’s nationwide tour has achieved an astounding $1 billion in sales, and by the end of it all, she could potentially secure the title of the highest-grossing tour of all time.
Truck drivers aren’t the sole crew members receiving substantial bonus checks as a reward from the Eras Tour. TMZ also reported that individuals employed to work on the tour, including lighting and sound directors, back-up dancers, musicians, caterers, and others, are also being given a “very generous amount” in bonuses in recognition of the tour’s success.
Swift is scheduled to perform for six nights at SoFi Stadium in Los Angeles, which will officially conclude her U.S. leg of the tour.
After that, Swift will embark on a series of international dates starting in late August. The international leg of the Eras Tour will kick off with two nights in Mexico City as Swift heads to South America, Asia, Australia, Europe and more.
