Meet the Edinburgh Taylor Swift superfans queuing in the rain for merchandise

Hundreds of Taylor Swift fans headed to Murrayfield Stadium on Wednesday as the early merchandise stall opened up.

We reported how Swifties could get their hands on official items from 10am on Wednesday ahead of the concert on Friday. A huge queue was pictured, with the truck set to stay open until 8pm.

Edinburgh Live headed down to the stadium to chat to some of the dedicated fans getting prepared two days before the gigs start. The US megastar is set to play three sold out shows at Murrayfield on June 7, 8 and 9.

Sisters, Christa and Sarah, have travelled up to Edinburgh to see their idol perform. Sarah has come from Canada and has been travelling around the UK with her sister, Christa, who lives in England. They decided to book tickets for the Scottish capital due to connections they have within their family.

Christa said: "We are sisters and are going to the Friday show. We got our tickets last year and decided to come here because our grandmother was born in Edinburgh and we always wanted to come back.

"We came here today to obviously get our merchandise, but also understand our entrances, get our bearings and know more about the stadium ahead of the shows."

Alison, 25, and Angus, 26, have been going out for almost two years and are both attending the night one show together. Angus said: "I knew I liked Taylor Swift before I knew Alison, but she is a huge fan so we are listening to her music and that's when I properly got into her.

"We pre-ordered the album so we could get into the presale last year and we just cannot wait. We also love Paramore who are opening for her so it all worked out perfectly really."

Best friends Anna and Meara, both 18, are also going to the Friday show together. They said they were terrified of the queues that could form over the weekend so decided to come across early.

Meara said: "We are going together on night one. We are so excited but we are nervous for the surprise songs that she could sing, she just has so many and I want to hear them all. We were so scared of how big the queues were going to be so we decided to come today and are so happy we did."

Scottish Gas Murrayfield wrote on X, formally known as Twitter: "Taylor Swift | The Eras Tour. Early merch days will be 5 and 6 June and open to all.

"On show days, non-ticket holders can purchase official merchandise between 10am and 1pm. After 1pm, only those with a show ticket for that specific day will be able to access merchandise."
