Swifties across the land rejoiced Tuesday when Taylor Swift announced the dates for her "The Eras" tour. Her St. Louis fans were quickly disappointed though, to see that Swift had no plans to come to St. Louis. The "Cruel Summer" singer will still come to Missouri, but fans will have to drive to Kansas City to see her. Another nearby option would be driving to Chicago.

Hey, if you love Taylor Swift, there is no distance too far to drive, right? So, here is everything you need to know about Tay Tay's upcoming stadium tour.

Girl in Red and OWENN will be appearing with Swift in Chicago, while MUNA and Gracie Abrams will be with Swift in K.C.
"The Eras" tour supports all of the albums that Swift has released since she was last on the road. She has released four total including the most recent and highly anticipated Midnights. It's her "11th album to debut at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 charts," according to Pitchfork, and it sold more than 1 million copies the first week it was out.
Swift announced Midnights' release date during the MTV Video Music Awards on August 28 as she accepted her award for Video of the Year for All Too Well: The Short Film. During her award acceptance speech, Swift described Midnights as “the stories of 13 sleepless nights scattered throughout my life." After the announcement, Swift also shared the album’s track titles via social media, building up anticipation in her fanbase.
But Swift also released Lover, Folklore and Evermore since her last tour. In her tweet, Swift described the tour as "a journey through the musical eras of my career (past and present!)."
