Sydney Tours and Trips 2024/2025

One of the world’s most beautiful and liveable cities, a trip to Sydney can make it hard to leave. The oldest and biggest city in Australia, Sydney is often mistaken for the capital. While it doesn’t hold the official title, this vibrant city is still considered the cultural and financial capital of Australasia as a whole. Glitz and glam lie around every corner, whether it’s art, fashion or even cuisine. But the beautifully natural landscape of Sydney creates a concrete jungle atmosphere that inspires a sense of wildness in its residents.

July 16 - July 24

Secret Sounds is thrilled to reveal that ‘America’s favourite indie band’ TV Girl will be bringing their hypnotic pop to Australia and New Zealand in July 2024, gracing stages in Melbourne and Sydney, with a special co-headline show with much loved British five-piece The Last Dinner Party to then head to New Zealand for a one-off show in Auckland.

VENUE UPGRADES DUE TO HUGE DEMAND!

Due to enormous demand, TV Girl’s Australian dates SOLD OUT in record time. All dates will be upgraded, all shows remaining the same date. Tickets to the Sydney show, now taking place at Hordern Pavilion are ON SALE NOW! Melbourne, upgrading to Festival Hall, and Brisbane, upgrading to Riverstage, will have tickets available on sale from Tuesday April 23rd. 

On the surface, TV Girl is a sunny, throwback splash of ‘60s French pop and southern California soul. Yet, under that shiny veneer lays a dark heart, beating with sharp wit and cynical alienation. TV Girl, composed of Brad Petering, Jason Wyman and Wyatt Harmon, was formed in 2010 by Petering as an outlet to blend the love of Spector-esque girl-group pop with an emerging interest in hip-hop. Featuring shimmering vocals and sampled beats, the self- titled debut EP of the same year turned heads online immediately.

TV Girl will limber up for their anticipated Australian shows at Governors Ball and Bonnaroo, and New Zealand before bringing their lush vintage rhythms our way in July 2024. Presale for all shows starts at 9am local, Thursday 18 April,  with tickets available to the general public from 9am local, Friday 19 April. Don’t miss out!

I don’t know about you, but whenever I think of Sydney, Australia, the first thing that comes to mind is its unique opera house.

As one of the most iconic buildings in the world, it’s not only great to look at, but also offers some incredible views of the harbor and surrounding skyline. One of the best ways to experience it is on a proper tour, with each one offering something a bit different.

I’ve carefully curated a guide of the 5 top Sydney Opera House tours, that I find offer great quality and are worth the time and money. Let’s jump right in!

Sydney Opera House Tour Reviews

1. sydney opera house guided backstage tour.

tours sydney 2024

  • Duration:  3 hours
  • Departure: Bennelong Point, Sydney NSW 2000
  • Departure Time: 7:00 AM
  • Includes:  Behind-the-scenes tour with a professional guide, breakfast

Sitting like a white gem right on the shores of the legendary Sydney Harbour, the Sydney Opera House stands as an iconic symbol of Australia’s varied heritage and architectural prowess.

While it’s undoubtedly captivating with its impressive exterior, very few visitors have the opportunity to actually head behind the curtain and discover the structure’s secrets!

With the Sydney Opera House Guided Backstage Tour , you’ll be able to get a glimpse into the inner workings of one of the globe’s most renowned performing arts venues!

We met up with our guide, who was incredibly knowledgeable and passionate about all things “Sydney”, offering plenty of educational opportunities regarding Australian history.

I didn’t know it was a UNESCO World Heritage-listed marvel, and I learned so much about the way it was designed, including the Concert Hall, Joan Sutherland Theatre, and why they decided on the sail imagery.

Another interesting thing I learned was that it has been around since 1973, so quite a bit older than I’d imagined for the modern look it sports!

We entered the areas that regularly only staff and performers are able to access, complete with the stage and dressing rooms while listening to some of the biggest “dramas” that have taken place here!

Expand To See More See Less

The small-group setting makes it much easier to move around the relatively “secret” spaces, as well as receive more customized attention from our guide. One of my favorite parts was getting to walk through the Stage Door, where countless famous names have passed through!

Our guide did a fantastic job at keeping our attention with intriguing stories and a great sense of humor, taking us to all kinds of cool vantage points most people don’t get to see.

After the tour, we headed to the cafe for a delicious complimentary lunch to laugh and chat about the tour with our guide and rest of our group members!

We also had the chance to buy some symphony tickets for later in the day, which only adds to the cool-factor knowing we were just on the stage hours earlier!

More Information & Tour Booking

100% refund for cancellations within 24 hours of tour experience, 2. private sydney full day tour including sydney opera house, bondi and manly.

tours sydney 2024

  • Duration:  8 hours
  • Departure:  Hotel pickup and drop-off included
  • Departure Time: 9:00 or 10:00 AM
  • Includes:  Expert driver/guide, private transportation, bottled water

If you’re on the hunt for a more “complete” Sydney tour that also includes the iconic Opera House, look no further than our next tour!

The Private Sydney Full Day Tour Including Sydney Opera House, Bondi and Manley experience is perfect if you have the entire day free to explore some of the best destinations in the city. In fact, I don’t know if I’d ever be able to get to know Sydney as well as I did if not for this tour!

The tour starts off early in the morning with a hotel pickup, so make sure you bring a jacket and some comfortable walking shoes as you’re going to see quite a lot!

The private transportation was comfortable, with air-conditioning and large windows to admire the natural and man-made beauty all around the city. Another factor I thought was well worth the money was the fact that it’s a completely-customizable private tour so we were able to pick and choose what we wanted to see.

Of course, if you aren’t familiar with the city you can tell your guide your interests and they can create an itinerary based around them to make it particularly interesting!

We of course got to see the exterior of the Sydney Opera House, taking photos and videos while learning all about its history from our guide (you can also opt to take an interior tour). Next up was Mrs. Macquarie’s Chair for a breathtaking view of the harbour while learning about the stone chair!

Next up, we saw the beautiful St. Mary’s Cathedral and the Royal Botanical Gardens, along with the contrasting “sketchy” Kings Cross which was once the Red Light District of Sydney!

You better believe there are some crazy stories about this place! After that, we headed up to the magnificent Watson’s Bay, which is one of the deepest and biggest harbours in the world, before heading to the world-famous Bondi Beach to stroll and take a dip in the water!

3. Opera Performance at the Sydney Opera House

tours sydney 2024

  • Duration:  2 to 4 hours
  • Departure: Sydney Opera House, Bennelong Point, Sydney NSW 2000
  • Departure Time: Contact tour operator
  • Includes:  Performance ticket to the Opera

Perhaps you’re looking for more of a dedicated Sydney Opera House tour, or you simply need a shorter tour to fit into your busy schedule. This tour is the perfect option, clocking in at around just 2 to 4 hours and 4 different seating options ideal for any budget.

The  Opera Performance at the Sydney Opera House tour offers both matinee and evening performances, which make it that much easier to fit into a packed itinerary, too! I’ll be upfront and say that you can also obviously just book the show that you want to see, individually.

However, this tour is a bit more comprehensive, and I felt like we had some opportunities with this tour that we wouldn’t have had we solely booked the tour. For example, it seemed like we had better seating and were just taken into consideration more by staff as we cruised around the interior of this legendary building.

I’d never seen an opera before, so I didn’t know what to expect, but the staff helped explain the history to me and offered specific insight into the opera we were about to attend.

The vast majority are performed in Italian, though they conveniently have the English subtitles projected right about the stage for easy viewing. We went to a bar inside the opera house first, so we could enjoy a tasty cocktail before going inside.

The performances do vary on the season, so if you do have any questions about the shows, don’t hesitate to reach out to the staff with any questions you may have. I recommend La Bohéme and Otello, but I’ve heard that all of them are great!

If you’d like an authentic opera experience at one of the best venues in the world, do give this one a good look!

4. Sydney Opera House VIP Guided Tour Ticket, Two Course Dinner and Drinks

tours sydney 2024

  • Departure:  Sydney Opera House
  • Departure Time: 4:15 PM
  • Includes:  VIP 1-hour behind-the-scenes guided evening tour of the Opera House, dinner, alcoholic beverages

Sydney’s iconic Opera House requires zero introduction and while seeing its exterior is a must, I highly recommend also checking out a proper tour that shows you the inside in a way few get to see.

The Sydney Opera House VIP Guided Tour Ticket, Two Course Dinner and Drinks is one of the best options and makes for the perfect date night outing instead of just going to a restaurant. T

his luxurious experience promises a true “VIP” treatment where you’ll not only see exclusive parts of the Opera House, but will also get to indulge in grade-A wines and delectable dishes crafted from the best local produce.

Whether you’re a complete newbie to opera or a seasoned vet, I can assure you that you’re going to love this evening of luxury and culture!

Start off the night by meeting your guide right in front of the Sydney Opera House, where you’ll receive a briefing and some insight into the history and architecture. Our guide seemed to know all its ins and outs, and was able to easily answer every question I threw at them.

The tour started at 4:15 pm, which I found to be the ideal time after we’d already gone sightseeing and on other tours during the day, but wasn’t so late that we were already tired.

We headed inside to enjoy a VIP 1-hour guided tour of the Opera House, where we got to go behind the scenes to see how all of the performances are put together! I had no idea so much work went into a single performance, with countless employees working seamlessly to make sure everything goes as planned.

After learning so much about the history of the beautiful Opera House, we all went over to a beautiful restaurant where we sat on the patio to enjoy the ships pass by under the harbour bridge as we enjoyed some delicious food and drink.

The 2-course dinner and 2 different drinks were divine, and as previously mentioned, made for a nice little date night activity. I can’t recommend this evening tour enough – especially if you’re looking to go out with your significant other or a group of friends.

5. Sydney Opera House Tour & Meal + Drink at Opera Bar or House Canteen

tours sydney 2024

  • Duration:  2 hours
  • Departure: Sydney Opera House, Bennelong Point Easy walk from Circular Quay Train Station, Sydney
  • Departure Time: Between 9:00 AM & 3:30 PM
  • Includes:  Guided tour of the Sydney Opera House, lunch

Sydney has some of the most incredible spring and summer weather of anywhere in the world I’ve traveled, and if you’re going to be in the city you have to partake in this next tour.

The Sydney Opera House Tour & Meal + Drink at Opera Bar or House Canteen  is my most recommended tour for the entire family – even if you’re traveling with young children or teenagers who have short attention spans!

If you don’t mind a bit of exercise, put on your walking shoes and sign up for one of the most in-demand excursions in Sydney!

This is also one of the most brief tours, combined with plenty of different start times available to make it one of the easiest to fit into a busy itinerary.

The tour starts by meeting up with your guide and the rest of your small group at the Opera House, who offers a fun little briefing before heading inside. The digital experience was also pretty cool and taught me a lot about the history of the building, along with some relevant info about Australia’s origins.

The area surrounding the Opera House was surprisingly beautiful, making for some great photo ops to print out later on as a nice memento.

Our tour guide perfectly balanced knowledge with humor, keeping all of us at the edge of our seats waiting for what was to come next.

Learning about the architecture and unique design required to pull this building off was fascinating, along with the mass amounts of people needed to make it happen!

After learning and exploring, we headed over to a lovely restaurant at one of the best restaurants I’ve been to in Sydney! You do get to choose from the Opera Bar or the House Canteen, though I love the latter for its amazing views and general “beachy” kind of vibe.

The food was incredible, and they also included an alcoholic beverage to sip on while soaking in the expansive scenery surrounding us.

Fresh out of a pandemic, Australia’s 2023 touring calendar was one of the busiest in recent memory, as artists of all stripes took centrestage everywhere from stadium shows to intimate local gigs. With a starry schedule that included the likes of Post Malone , Red Hot Chili Peppers , and Mötley Crüe , it’ll be tricky for 2024’s schedule to outdo its predecessor – and yet, thanks to the likes of Taylor Swift , Blink-182 and Pink , plus Coldplay, Pearl Jam and SZA later in the year, it’s poised to do just that.

From debut headline shows for breakout artists to bustling festival sideshow programs, there’s something for everyone to enjoy as a stellar batch of musicians make their way Down Under in 2024. Read on for NME’s roundup of all the biggest concerts and tours coming to Australia this year.

Here are the concerts and tours coming to Australia in 2024:

Pink When: February 9 – March 23 Find tickets and more info

Australia bloody loves Pink , and she’s apparently pretty fond of her “home away from home” too. In 2009, she played 58 shows here as part of her Funhouse tour, performing for some 660,000 fans. In 2013, when she announced an Australian tour in support of sixth studio album ‘The Truth About Love’, 320,000 tickets were snapped up within a few hours of them going on sale.

It makes sense, then, that the American singer-songwriter has a slew of dates booked for her return in February and March 2024 as part of her Summer Carnival world tour . She’ll be bringing songs from her ninth studio album ‘Trustfall’ to stadiums around the country, including stops in Sydney, Newcastle, Brisbane, the Gold Coast, Melbourne, Adelaide and Perth.

She’ll be playing a total of four shows at Melbourne’s Marvel Stadium and conclude the tour at Townsville’s Queensland Country Bank stadium.

  • Depeche Mode

Aussie Depeche Mode fans are an incredibly patient bunch. The last time the British synth-pop titans toured the country was in 1994, meaning nearly three decades have passed since they last paid us a visit. But good things come to those who wait, and it seems there is a glimmer of hope for those hoping to catch the band Down Under.

  • READ MORE: Depeche Mode: every single album ranked and rated

In March 2023, Depeche Mode’s Dave Gahan told an Italian blog that the band were eyeing “as-yet-unannounced dates in Asia and Australia” as part of a touring run that would lead into 2024. The band have toured the world in support of their latest album, ‘Memento Mori’ , and a trip to Australia to cap off the jaunt seems more likely than ever.

Not long home from a fantastic trip and still can’t believe how much Via Travel manage to pack into the time…koalas, kangaroos, Aussie bbq, beaches, snorkelling, scuba-diving (so glad I braved it!), racing against the tide on K’Gari, stunning Whitsundays (even in the rain), and the most perfect sunny day on the Great Barrier Reef….to name just a few of my highlights. Our tour guides, Cara (week1) & Justin (week2), were great too - enthusiastic, friendly, informative & so helpful. Being a small group tour, they had time to get to know everyone and ensure we were all having the best time! I’d highly recommend Via Travel to anyone and definitely use them again if I ever get back to Australia.

What people love about sydney to cairns tours.

Really good trip with value for your money. We saw a lot of Australia in such a short time, given how massive Australia really is. Our guide, Tamar, was an absolute sweetheart, knowledgeable, well travelled and very professional. This tour has the right balance of group activities and independent activities if you choose to do so. My only complaint is that some of the accommodations were subpar, which was disappointing given the high cost of this trip.
Had such a great time on the 3 week tour and Hannah was the best tour guide we could ask for! She was so knowledgeable and always so keen to help (and would go and research the answers to any weird questions she didn’t know the answers to). She even made the weather hold out for us for most of the tour! ;)
Had the best 5 weeks of my life traveling the east coast with ultimate travel, our tour guide Zoe was amazing and always happy to help us with anything and had the most fun I couldn’t recommend enough made so many amazing friends and memories to last a lifetime , Zoe your were amazing x

Passenger Adds New Sydney Show To 2024 Australian Tour

  • Oops! Something went wrong. Please try again later. More content below

Passenger  has expanded his 2024 Australian headline tour with a second show at Sydney’s iconic Opera House . The English indie-folk troubadour, real name Mike Rosenberg, will perform an additional show at the NSW’s capital’s most iconic venue on Sunday, 20th October, supported by Sydney singer-songwriter Josh Pyke.

“I’m absolutely thrilled to be playing the Sydney Opera House,” the artist said in a press statement today, announcing the news. “I’ve been lucky enough to have a few bucket list moments throughout my career and this will certainly be amongst the very best of them.”

Passenger – ‘Let Her Go’ (Feat. Ed Sheeran – Anniversary Edition)

He continued: “Sydney for a while was my home – I spent months busking, writing, recording and playing small venues around the city – so to come back all the years later and play this iconic venue is just the most wonderful feeling. I genuinely can’t wait!”

Passenger new Australian tour will see him return to stages down under for the first time in six years, in honour of the tenth anniversary of his seminal LP,  All The Little Lights .

The down under leg of his  All The Little Lights   (Anniversary Edition)  world tour begins on Thursday, 17th October in Perth, and will also see Passenger visit fans in Brisbane, and Melbourne on top of the aforementioned Sydney dates.

The news comes after Rosenberg released a special anniversary edition of the LP, which transformed him from a touring street performer to a Platinum-selling global sensation, featuring re-recorded versions of the album’s biggest tracks reimagined with big-name collaborators including  Ed Sheeran ,  Foy Vance , Gabrielle Aplin and Nina Nesbitt.

Passenger’s love affair with Australia has been well documented. He first came to our shores 15 years ago as a busker before subsequently moving here to record his 2010 album  Flight Of The Crow , which featured a host of his Aussie mates including Sydney support act  Josh Pyke , as well as Kate Miller-Heidke ,  Matt Corby ,  Katie Noonan  and members of  Boy & Bear .

2013’s  All The Little Lights  was recorded here too, with lead single ‘Let Her Go’ going on to top the ARIA Singles Chart for five consecutive weeks before going 7 x Platinum.

Midnight Oil

April 24, 2024

World premiere of midnight oil: the hardest line to open sydney film festival 2024..

The 71 st Sydney Film Festival announces it will present the World Premiere of  Midnight Oil: The Hardest Line  for its Opening Night Gala on Wednesday June 5, at the State Theatre followed by a post-screening celebration in the Sydney Town Hall. 

The Hardest Line tells Midnight Oil’s trailblazing story for the first time ever on film. Contrary. Passionate. Outspoken. Across their 45-year career, ‘The Oils’ helped shape modern Australia with anthems like US Forces, Beds Are Burning, Blue Sky Mine and Redneck Wonderland . Featuring unheard interviews with every band member, unseen live and studio footage, alongside signature moments like the outback tour with Warumpi Band, their Exxon protest gig in New York and those famous “Sorry” suits at the Sydney Olympics, this film traces the singular journey of Australia’s quintessential rock band.  

“We are thrilled to present Midnight Oil: The Hardest Line as the opening film for this year’s Sydney Film Festival,” said Sydney Film Festival Director Nashen Moodley. “This documentary not only chronicles the formidable journey of one of Australia’s most influential bands but also captures the spirit of an era that reshaped our cultural and political landscapes. It’s a fitting tribute to their legacy and a profound reflection on their impact that continues to inspire audiences around the world.”

Writer, director, and executive producer Paul Clarke said “There is no other rock band in the world like Midnight Oil. For half a century they were fearless, contrary, and totally original. When Australia was creaking under the weight of its own myths, they told us the truth. Their songs pinpoint the fault-lines in our culture, they rage against the strange and dangerous times we’ve lived through, and they offer hope.  After following them for seven years, we thank ‘The Oils’ and we feel we have an important film to share. We are all excited to unleash Midnight Oil: The Hardest Line as the Opening Night of the Sydney Film Festival.”

Beyond’s Mikael Borglund, Executive Producer, said, “ Midnight Oil: The Hardest Line is a film for our time.  Observant of Australian politics and culture, and fearless in calling out environmental and racial issues, ‘The Oils’ maintained their relevance for over 40 years by writing and performing music with global resonance. Featuring timeless anthems, we cannot wait for audiences to witness the power and the passion behind the legend that is Midnight Oil.”

Midnight Oil’s drummer Rob Hirst said, “With strong management, a tough crew and a sabre-tooth lawyer, bands can often dwell in a kind of mobile Faraday cage – the lightning striking all around, while the musicians remain high and dry in a studio, on a stage or wedged inside a Tarago. Thus it was for Midnight Oil: rarely were we able to focus on the horizon and see the ‘Big Picture’, if there was such a thing. So a film such as The Hardest Line is as much a revelation as a chronicle. Perhaps at last we can frame the last 50 years, make some collective sense of it, wrap it in a box marked ‘the Luckiest Band Ever.’”

Midnight Oil: The Hardest Line is a Blink TV and Beyond Entertainment feature documentary. Principal production funding from Screen Australia and Australian Broadcasting Corporation in association with Screen NSW.  Financed with support from Sony Music Entertainment and Sony Music Publishing.  Australian theatrical distribution by Roadshow Films.   Midnight Oil: The Hardest Line  is written and directed by Paul Clarke, produced by Carolina Sorensen, and executive produced by Mikael Borglund, Paul Clarke and Martin Fabinyi.

Taylor Swift's The Tortured Poets Department is here, but it could be a logistical nightmare for the Eras Tour

A black and white photo of Swift holding up The Tortured Poets Department, and peering through the transparent vinyl

Get ready for another Taylor Swift era.

The Tortured Poets Department (TTPD) is the superstar's 11th studio album and is being released around the world today.

It'll be dropping the second the clock hits midnight on the east coast of America, which will be this afternoon in Australia.

  • 2pm AEST : ACT, New South Wales, Queensland, Tasmania, Victoria
  • 1:30pm ACST : Northern Territory and South Australia
  • 12pm AWST : Western Australia

So far, we know the album is a whopping 16 songs (not including bonus vinyl tracks) and features multiple collaborations, including with Florence + The Machine.

We also know the first single will be Fortnight featuring Post Malone, with a music video dropping tomorrow morning as well.

Despite no singles being released in its lead up, clues point to TTPD seemingly being inspired by the five stages of grief : denial, anger, bargaining, depression and acceptance.

Plus, many fans have speculated that the album title is a reference to the name of a group chat Swift's ex was part of – The Tortured Man Club.

And while The Tortured Poets Department could very well set new streaming records, it also poses a logistical nightmare for Taylor Swift's Eras Tour: how do you include yet another album into a show that is over three hours long?

Below, two ABC reporters and Swifties weigh up the likelihood of how the megastar might adapt her sell-out tour when it recommences in Europe next month.

We could lose some songs from every era to make room

Jessica : This seems like the most likely course of action. To put things into perspective, the Eras Tour includes songs from nine albums, but their airtime varies wildly. Lover, Folklore and Midnights have at least six songs, while Speak Now gets just two. So this might be a chance to balance things out?

Georgie : It would make the most sense to me. I can't imagine a tour that doesn't spend at least some time on the freshest music. But, this is a unique scenario. You have an artist who is essentially doing a greatest hits tour at the age of 34 while she is still churning out new music.

If she does cut music to make room for Tortured Poets, it will be very divisive. Every fan has their favourite era. But, I think if she was to I would hope she cuts songs she has already toured. You have to remember she put out four (now five) albums since her last tour and I imagine it would make the most sense for her to give more air time to Lover, Folklore, Evermore, Midnights and TTPD.

Jessica : If you were in charge of Taylor Swift's setlist, which songs would you cull? I'd ditch The Archer from the Lover era so it ends with, well, Lover. I'd be ruthless and cut most of the songs from the Red era as nothing compares to All Too Well (10 Minute Version). But keep the Reputation portion as is! It's perfect.

What if smaller eras, like Fearless and Speak Now, got cut altogether?

Taylor Swift performs in a glittering lavender ballgown.

Jessica : I love chaos so I would not bat an eye if Taylor Swift dropped the entire Speak Now era from her tour. (But Enchanted is such a core memory for a lot of fans.) I know this might be a wild concept but there's not one song from her self-titled debut album in the Eras Tour (justice for Our Song!), so make of that what you will.

Georgie : I think this will cause a major generational divide. The beautiful part about the Eras Tour is you have fans new and old coming together. Taylor has been making music since 2009 and the Eras Tour has been a chance for people in their twenties and thirties to dress up in glitter and be teenagers again while sharing the new music with teenagers today. I'm a folklore girl through and through so I am hoping if any eras get sacrificed it's the older ones. But I can't lie, it's pretty special to belt out Love Story with thousands of other people.

Could we lose the two surprise songs for a few Tortured Poets hits?

Georgie : Controversial opinion but I would be ok with this. Although, take this as you want because I have experienced the Eras Tour. But the section is a gamble anyway. You never know what she's going to play and someone is always disappointed or their top pick is played another night. If you cut this section, no-one gets hurt. Maybe she subs it out for three best songs from TTPD?

Jessica : I missed out on tickets for the Eras Tour altogether so I was taken aback seeing fans who did score tickets complaining about which night got "better" surprise songs. You can't please everyone! I agree, this would level the playing field and take the comparison factor out of the tour… but I wonder if that uniqueness is a marketing factor as some super fans attend multiple concerts in the same city.

Imagine if she just… didn't play her new album

Georgie : Don't say it or it might come true!

Jessica : I think this would be the riskiest option. Imagine the disappointment on the first night when the tour recommences in Paris on May 9. But some fans, especially in America, who witnessed the Eras Tour last year before this album was announced feel it's unfair if other countries get a different experience. But that's what happens with the passage of time!

Georgie : I see your point but you have to remember we're in an age where many people have watched the Eras Tour happen through TikTok and the cinema release. So is it really missing out when it's been inescapable for over a year? This could be a chance for the people who have waited so long for the Europe leg – who have basically watched the tour on streaming and all over TikTok – to have something unique and worth the cash.

Or she could just include the new album and make the show nearly *four hours* long?

Jessica : I think this option would please the most fans, but I genuinely don't know how she performs for hours on end each night and then travels through different time zones. Oh,  to be a billionaire with a whole team taking care of everything all the time.

Georgie : I don't see this happening. Costs would skyrocket and many stadiums have a noise curfew. That's new costumes, sets and dance routines.

Jessica : But I would eat up new costumes, sets and dance routines! A four-hour concert is outrageous, which makes me think she might very well pick this option. Time will tell.

Georgie : I'm obviously a Swiftie but when I found out about the new album and what that might mean for the tour I just felt… overwhelmed. I'm still processing the release of four albums and two Taylor's Versions in four years. And now she's putting out new music? It's simply too much! The concert is a marathon but if I did have to go to a four-hour show, I'd do it for Ms Swift.

The worst option: Swapping All Too Well (10 Minute Version) for the radio edit to save time

Jessica : Sacrilegious.

Georgie : The people would riot. Jake Gyllenhaal would be thrilled though.

Final thoughts

Jessica : With everything going on in the world, I think this is a fun problem to ponder, and an interesting one for Taylor to tackle. I wish her well in whatever form the Eras Tour takes, because fans are going to have strong opinions either way.

Georgie: I worry that Taylor needs a holiday but, as you said, she's a billionaire now so I think she'll be fine. I hope she tours future albums but I also support her having a rest. Go chill with the cats and Travis. You've danced in high heeled boots for two years.

Woman Kidnapped on Oregon Doorbell Camera Found, Suspect Knew Her

Luke bryan falls hard onstage, laughs it off, luke bryan slips, crashes hard onstage ... shares video on big screen.

3:21 PM PT -- Seems Luke Bryan 's fall wasn't caused by a fan's phone ... a new angle shows he just sorta slips onstage and happens to land on top of the cell. Might want to look into non-slip shoes, Luke!

Luke Bryan's proving the show must go on ... 'cause he slipped during last night's performance and crashed to the ground hard -- but, took the incident in stride.

The country music singer-songwriter performed at the Coast City Country Festival in Vancouver last night ... and while hyping up his next song Bryan stepped in the wrong spot and went flying into the air.

Check out the clip ... Bryan looks like a cartoon stepping on a banana peel, really getting some height on his slip -- and, revealing he actually stepped on someone's phone.

LB could've gotten seriously hurt, but he pops up pretty quickly and laughs it off ... before asking if anyone had captured the insane moment.

Of course, pretty much everyone in the front row had cameras trained on Bryan ... and, he borrowed a fan's phone to show a clip of his fall on the big screen for the entire stadium to enjoy.

Anyhoo ... Luke and the crowd laughed about the incident and moved on -- and, Bryan probably handled it so well because it's not the first time he's eaten it during a performance.

Remember ... TMZ obtained video back in 2014 of Luke rockin' out at a concert in North Carolina before stepping too far forward -- and, literally face-planting offstage. People rushed over to help him back then, and he got a few stitches, but ultimately he was fine.

@lukebryan your dance moves must go on even with a tumble. #RaisedUpRightTour #RaleighNC pic.twitter.com/HF3v6YNyBd — Molly Chisamore (@MollyChisamore) July 9, 2022 @MollyChisamore

And, there's this from 2022 ... where Bryan showed off some booty-poppin' dance moves -- when his ankle gave out and left him fully on his back.

BTW ... Bryan's got a show Wednesday in Saskatchewan, Canada -- watch your step, Luke!!!
