Taylor Swift has kicked off her first Eras Tour show in London. Stepping onto the stage, she spoke to the tens of thousands in the crowd at Wembley Stadium.

According to fan X account The Eras Tour, Swift said: "You're making me feel like tonight I get to play my first sold out show at Wembley Stadium on The Eras Tour!" She then added: "There are 88,446 people in this stadium today!"

She is reportedly in a black outfit to start with. Wembley's official capacity is 90,000. 'You're making me feel' is something Swift says at the beginning of every show.

Some superfans even began queueing yesterday afternoon (June 20) outside Wembley Stadium to give themselves the best chance of getting a good spot close to the stage. There's a huge buzz in London around the superstar's arrival, with murals painted, the steps near Wembley Stadium repainted with her face and renamed the Swiftie Steps, and the Tube map undergoing a Swift themed redesign.

The Tube and trains, for example, are expected to be super busy throughout the day, although one train line will not be stopping at Wembley due to overcrowding.
