Singer-songwriter Taylor Swift has had a busy two years. In August 2019, she released her album “Lover.” The album’s supporting tour, Lover Fest, was meant to start in summer 2020 and span across Europe, Brazil, and the US; however, it was cancelled due to the global spread of COVID-19. Swift kept busy during the pandemic, rerecording her albums “Fearless” and “Red” and releasing her new original albums “Folklore” and “Evermore.” Now that musical tours are picking back up, fans are wondering whether Taylor Swift will go on tour in 2022. Here’s what we’ve gathered so far.

I’ll see you on stage as soon as I can but right now what’s important is committing to this quarantine, for the sake of all of us.” In February 2021, Swift tweeted, “I miss you terribly and can’t wait til we can all safely be at shows together again.”

One Reddit user speculates that Swift might tour from summer to late fall: “I’d really love to see her tour from around June to November/December as I’m pretty sure the pandemic will be much more subdued then.”
Another user thinks Swift might not do a tour for “Lover,” “Folklore,” or “Evermore” and will instead focus on her entire library of music: “I think she’s at that point in her career where she can drop doing tours for each era and instead do big shows showcasing songs from multiple albums.”
