HOLLYWOOD (KTLA) — As pop superstar Taylor Swift’s “The Eras Tour” continues, the singer has reportedly given the truckers on her tour a $100,000 bonus, according to TMZ. On July 29, roughly 50 truckers reportedly received the six-figure bonuses ahead of the 33-year-old singer’s concert in Santa Clara, California.
The truck drivers are responsible for hauling Swift’s concert equipment across the U.S. leg of her global tour. The truckers’ bonuses totaled about $5 million, TMZ reports.
Besides the truckers, Swift also gifted hefty bonuses to just about everyone working on her tour, including dancers, riggers, sound technicians, catering and more. The bonuses total over $55 million, according to PEOPLE.
Swift’s sold-out “Eras” tour kicked off in Glendale, Arizona, on March 18 and is projected to earn over $1 billion in revenue by the time it concludes on Aug. 17, 2024, at London’s Wembley Stadium. Economists predict Swift could have the highest-grossing tour of all time after the 52-night, 20-city tour concludes, according to Forbes.
