The Eras Tour just got even better!

On Monday, May 27, Taylor Swift announced on her Instagram Stories that she would be adding three opening acts to her Wembley Stadium Eras Tour shows in London — Mette on Friday, June 21, Griff on Saturday, June 22 and Benson Boone on Sunday, June 23.

“I just found out Fortnight is #1 on the UK airplay chart!!!!” the “Cruel Summer” artist, 34, said alongside an Eras Tour poster. “Thought this might be a fun time to announce the first group of opening acts I’ll be adding to the London shows, going on before Paramore. I chose artists whose music I love listening to, and I can’t wait for them to add an extra jolt of excitement to our shows.”

Her new opening acts all replied to the news with excitement on social media.

“It’s a new ERA for ya girl… Opening the “Taylor Swift | The Eras Tour” on June 21st at Wembley Stadium in London. Thank you @taylorswift13 – Never been so excited in my entire life!!! #TSTheErasTour,” wrote the “DARLING DRIVE” artist, 32, on social media alongside the tour poster.

The “Vertigo” performer, 23, shared a photo of the tour poster and a shot of her and Swift eating French fries together at the 2021 BRITs on social media: “TAYLOR SWIFT HAS INVITED ME ON THE ERAS TOUR!!!!!! 8 yr old me who had fearless on repeat wouldn’t believe this. So unbelievably grateful to Taylor for all the love she’s shown me and my music. See you at Wembley on June 22nd. Ly 📷 📷 📷 #TSTheErasTour.”

Swift previously gave Griff a shout-out in September 2023 on her Instagram Story, writing “Damn Griff I love this one,” as she shared her single “Vertigo.”

“Her popping up the other week and posting ‘Vertigo’ is the most crazy thing because it’s like — she never posts and she really doesn’t have to do that. So it’s really kind of her to be so generous with promoting that,” she told PEOPLE. “It’s really cool.”

After she saw the post, Griff thought “What the f—?” and then, “How do I even thank her?”

The “Miss Me Too” singer said that while they don’t “have a constant point of contact,” Swift has become “this fairy godmother that pops up and makes things amazing for me.”
