Nathan Carter said he's gutted he'll miss Taylor Swift's Irish gigs. The 34-year-old singer is a self-confessed Swiftie who reckons the US superstar has "made country music cool".

Taylor will play three sold-out concerts at Dublin's Aviva stadium later this month and Nathan was among the fans left without tickets.

He told the Irish Sunday Mirror: "Taylor is on the weekend we're [performing] at the Bord Gais so I'm gutted to be missing her."

"I did look for tickets for friends but I couldn't get them. I missed the boat. Taylor and Beyonce jazzing up country is only good for the genre, it's bringing the younger generation to listen to country music."

Taylor brings here critically-acclaimed Eras tour to Dublin on June 28, 29 and 30. More than 70,000 fans packed Edinburgh's Murrayfield Stadium on Friday night for the first of her UK dates.

The pop icon, 34, made eight costume changes blasting out a four-hour juggernaut of a set to the delight of fans.

Her epic show, which began in Phoenix, Arizona, last March, has been expanded with seven tracks from her latest album.

Taylor will sing her way into the record books beating the record set by Madonna when she plays eight gigs at Wembley Stadium in London.
