Rail work suspended for Taylor Swift gig

Taylor Swift

Network Rail has agreed to suspend engineering works to avoid disruption for fans heading to Taylor Swift's gig at Cardiff's Principality Stadium next month.

It is planning a 10-day closure on the Vale of Glamorgan line between Rhoose Cardiff International Airport and Bridgend from Saturday 8 June to Monday 17 June.

But it will reopen on Tuesday 18 June for the gig.

Buses will replace trains during the "essential" maintenance, warned Network Rail.

The singer will be in Wales as part of her Era's tour.

The tour, which began on 17 March 2023 and will continue until December 2024, has seen Swift rake in more than $1.04bn - with sold out concerts, hotels and crashed ticket sites.

Not to mention that one concert even caused an earthquake.

The singer's Cardiff concert sold out in minutes, leaving many fans looking for re-sale tickets.

Online scammers took advantage of this, with one Welsh fan losing up to £250 when she was duped.

Some legitimate Cardiff re-sale tickets are being priced at £3,352.
