Edinburgh Taylor Swift fans pack out city McDonald's after gig in chaotic scenes

An Edinburgh city centre McDonald's was packed out following Taylor Swift's second performance in the capital on Saturday.

With more than 70,000 revellers flocking to the West End on both Friday and Saturday night, it was no surprise many of them were hungry after sitting and standing through a three-hour show.

Taylor is said to have performed more than 40 songs from all of her studio albums with a few surprises thrown into the mix too. While the mission for most fans was to rush for the last tram or train home, many flocked to the fast food joint for a late night snack.

Footage uploaded to social media shows the restaurant on Princes Street - just a short walk from Murrayfield - absolutely packed at around midnight with hungry punters waiting patiently for their meal.

The floor is barely visible with dozens of customers gathering in the centre of the store with the user captioning the video with a single laughing face emoji due to the chaotic scenes.

Food delivery drivers can be seen in amongst the crowd as well as a pink cowboy hat at the front of the queue. However, the customer wasn't the only Swiftie - one team member behind the counter was also sporting a bright pink hat while serving.

Businesses in and around the city have benefitted from a huge surge in trade thanks to the arrival of the global superstar. As well as transport being relied upon for the large majority of concertgoers, local shops and restaurants have also seen profits rocket.

The city will certainly be without a certain buzz in the air after Taylor leaves the stage on Sunday night in what will conclude a three-night stint at the West End rugby venue.

More than 200,000 fans in total are understood to have attended on Friday, Saturday and Sunday, with many travelling overseas.
