Taylor Swift snubs St. Louis on ‘The Eras’ tour | Music news and interviews | Saint Louis
Swifties across the country rejoiced on Tuesday when Taylor Swift announced the dates for her “The Eras” tour. Her St. Louis fans, however, were quickly disappointed to see that Swift had no plans to come to St. Louis. The “Cruel Summer” singer will still be coming to Missouri, but fans will have to travel to Kansas City to see her. Another nearby option would be to drive to Chicago.
