On Tuesday, June 18 global superstar Taylor Swift came to Cardiff with her Eras Tour and fans came out in their thousands to watch her perform. The 34-year-old singer, known for hits like Shake It Off and Fearless, put on a huge show in the Welsh capital and not only did people fill out a packed Principality Stadium but also came out in their hundreds to listen from outside as well.

In the midst of all the excitement Taylor shared how happy she was to perform in Cardiff. She had learned words of Welsh and seemed to love the energy of the crowd. But she made a small mistake. At one point in the show she said: “This is my very first time getting to play a show in Wales, and look at this. This is ridiculous. You got 67,000 people in here. Thank you, Cardiff.”

The only thing is, that wasn’t Taylor’s first time performing in Wales. That happened in Swansea’s Singleton Park in May 2018 as part of BBC Radio 1’s Big Weekend. You can see photos from that show here.

Over the course of that weekend which featured other big names like Ed Sheeran, Liam Payne, 30 Seconds to Mars and Sam Smith, Taylor's crowd was surely the biggest of all, with the vast majority of the 26,000 people in attendance gathering at the main stage when she was on. She said at the time: "So this is our first time here, and we get here and it's packed and you guys are dancing and you're not just singing along but you're screaming along, which is the best!

"You kind of took my breath away when I first came out here, like you guys are killing it. You look absolutely beautiful. You actually look like a level above beautiful.”
