Taylor Swift Eras tour

Stage times, gates, transport, support, security, essential information for the three Taylor Sift Dublin gigs at Aviva Stadium.


The Eras tour is coming to Dublin’s Aviva Stadium (formerly Landsdowne Road) for three nights this week from Friday June 28th to Sunday June 30th.

Here’s all the essential public information from the organisers…



Schedule and likely stage times?

Box Office – 3pm.
Doors – 5pm.
Show Starts – 6pm.
Estimate support time: 6pm – 6:45pm.
Taylor Swift show estimated time:
The show is likely to start around 7.20/ 7.30pm based off the recent London shows which had the same gate time of 5pm.

If show is 3 hours 20 minutes as recent ones, then that suggests show curfew is at 10.45pm.


Please note: all times are subject to change

IMPORTANT: Strictly no early queuing or camping permitted. A limited number of early entry VIP packages were sold for this event; the Karma Is My Boyfriend Package and the It’s A Love Story Package. These ticket holders will be granted access shortly before general doors.

If patrons do turn up early, security and An Garda Síochána will be on patrol in advance and will turn away anyone arriving early at the venue who does not have an early entry ticket. Queuing in the streets around the stadium causes disruption and we appeal to patrons to heed this advice and respect the local community. Customers should plan to be within the venue 45 mins before show start.


Who’s supporting Taylor Swift in Dublin?

American pop punk band Paramore are supporting all three nights. The band are fronted by Hayley Williams and are known for songs like ‘Hard Times’, ‘Misery Business’ and ‘Ain’t It Fun’. The band have been playing their Talking Heads cover of ‘Burning Down The House’ live.

Based on setlist.FM info, their set is likely to start around 6pm and will run for 45 minutes to around 6.45pm.


How long is Taylor Swift’s show? What is the setlist?

Taylor’s Eras tour setlist is over 3 hours long (3 hours 20 minutes on average) with 45 or so songs taking in every album she has released starting with Lover, and featuring songs from Fearless, Red, Speak Now, Reputation, folklore / evermore, 1989, The Tortured Poets Department and Midnights, with a couple of surprises, two songs specifically in a Surprise Set each night.

Songs from the recent album The Tortured Poets Department have now properly been added with some other songs taken off the list.

See setlist.fm for the full list.

The show is likely to start around 7.20pm based off the recent London shows which had the same gate time of 5pm.
