Taylor Swift gave $55 million in bonuses in total for her Eras Tour

It's a good time to work alongside the music icon

As if we needed yet another thing to fuel the Swiftie mania taking the world by storm, it has now been reported that Taylor Swift gave $55 million in bonuses in total for her Eras Tour.

The 'Anti-Hero' singer kicked off her eagerly-anticipated tour a few months back (17 March) and is now well into the journey of taking on a whopping 52 shows across the United States starting at State Farm Stadium in Glendale, Arizona.

Since then, Swift has made headlines for a whole bunch of reasons including fans causing 2.3 magnitude 'earthquake' during her 'Shake It Off' performance in Seattle.

The Eras Tour marks the sixth headlining concert tour by the 'Bad Blood' star after having not toured for her studio albums Lover, Folklore and Evermore due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

So, it's no surprise that fans flocked to get a chance to see Swift sing along to all ten of her albums, including her latest, Midnights.

However, with a tour of that scale - a whole bunch of staff members will be needed to ensure things all run smoothly and the hit-maker appears to have compensated them all very kindly for their service.

According to People, sources confirmed: "The pop superstar recently gave bonuses totaling over $55 million to everyone (from her dancers to riggers, sound technicians and catering, among others) working on her massive show."

The news follows Swift giving $100,000 bonuses to around 50 production truck drivers who have been responsible for hauling all of the equipment across the country.

Sources familiar with the tour told TMZ the singer handed out six-figure checks to each trucker as an 'end of tour bonus', with each driver given a whopping $100,000 (£78,200).

Not too shabby at all.

People flocked to Twitter to share their praise for the musician's 'generous' gesture.

Swifties have since come out in their masses to share their praise for the beloved singer.

One Twitter user penned: "She is so generous and kind."

A second echoed: "Wow! Thats incredible. So rare to see such generosity these days! Bravo Taylor!"

"Perfect way to take care of the people who take care of her," wrote a third, before calling the grand gesture a 'class act'.

A fourth added: "Bet they deserved it - a tour of this magnitude is hard work."

Many, after catching light of the news, couldn't wait to apply for her a post on the tour.

"Bruh she gave 55m to every person working wtfff where can I send an application," joked one Twitter user.

A second quipped: "Oh, I'm about to go fill out a application."

A final hopeful user wondered: "Can concert-goers get a bonus too?"

Now that would be something.
