Bridgerton star Nicola Coughlan reveals why she’s ‘terrified’ about attending Taylor Swift’s Eras tour

Nicola Coughlan has admitted she’s ‘terrified’ about attending Taylor Swift’s Eras tour. 

The American singer is currently on the UK leg of her global tour and Bridgerton star Nicola, 37, revealed in a chat with Hits Radio that she will be in the audience. 

Yet she confessed that she has mixed feelings about the night after her niece, a Taylor Swift superfan, gave her a grilling. 

Nicola recalled: ‘My niece is the biggest Swiftie and when I was home in Galway doing press she was grilling me like, “what’s your favourite album?” And I was like “1989”, she said, “you can’t say that one!”

‘But that’s my favourite,  and she was like “do you know your earlier ones? Do you know this…” So now I’m slightly terrified that I’m going to go and I don’t have the PHD in Swiftism!’

Nicola is one of millions of music fans that will be enjoying Taylor’s Era Tours. 

And Taylor was overjoyed when her fans smashed the ‘all-time attendance record’ for Anfield Stadium. 

The Bad Blood singer, 34, played a marathon show at the arena on Thursday night, shattering the previous best for most fans to gather at the ground – set by Liverpool Football Club 72 years ago.

Taylor told her crowd of 62,000-plus Swifties the record had been broken, and although an exact number was not revealed it must have exceeded the last one of 61,905 football fans who packed the stadium on February 2, 1952.

She said during the three hours-plus show: ‘So, I just want to say, those things mean the world to us getting to play this show for people who would go so far above and beyond for us and welcome us to Liverpool in such a fashion.

‘We love you so much and, you know, while I was walking to the stage, they pulled me aside and told me another thing you did for us tonight.

‘And that thing is that you – you broke the all time attendance record for this stadium tonight.

‘Don’t you just love knowing there’s never been as many people in this room as there are right now? I, personally, love that feeling.’

Taylor’s ongoing Eras Tour – which returns to Anfield on Friday and Saturday – has broken a series of other live records.

It is the highest grossing tour in history, with more than 4.3 million tickets sold, resulting in over $1 billion in gross sales.

Taylor shattered the ticket sales record set at Seattle’s Lumen Field, New Jersey’s MetLife Stadium, Pittsburgh’s Acrisure Stadium, the AT and T Stadium in Arlington, Sao Paolo’s Allianz Parque, Nashville’s Nissan Stadium and Melbourne’s Cricket Ground.

Thursday marked the 100th show in Taylor’s Eras Tour, and she told fans during the three hours-plus gig about the milestone: ‘(It) blows my mind – it doesn’t feel like a statistic to me… 

‘This has genuinely been the most exhausting, all-encompassing but most joyful, most rewarding, most wonderful thing that has ever happened in my life, this tour.’
