Taylor Swift is one of the most successful artists of recent times worldwide, and all her efforts have established her as a queen in the industry. In her current The Eras Tour, she has received immeasurable support from all her fans, leaving each of her dates sold out.
However, she is aware that without her team (literally her entire team) her shows would not be possible. That’s why she has looked for a way to thank them and reward them for all their effort.
Taylor Swift Rewards Her Team Behind The Eras Tour
According to information from TMZ, Taylor compensated the drivers who operate the trucks that transport all the material for her concerts in the United States, including screens, stages, costumes, lights, etc., with a large sum of money. Around 50 drivers who have worked for the singer received an end-of-tour bonus equivalent to a check for 100 thousand dollars.
Of course, the drivers were not the only ones recognized for their work, this bonus was also received by drivers, dancers, lighting and audio technicians, production crew, etc., as a token of appreciation for their effort and dedication to the singer’s most successful tour. The amount of these checks has not been disclosed.
Taylor Swift gave this amount of money to her entire team to encourage them and let them know that they are an indispensable part of the project, even acknowledging that without them, she would not be the artist she is now.
The Grateful Staff
Taylor Swift’s workers have been grateful for the singer’s show of support, and even one of the sons of the transporters shared his experience. The young man mentioned that his father is part of Taylor’s team of carriers and that, thanks to their help, he was able to study college as an immigrant.
So he thanked the soloist infinitely for making his dream come true. “My dad works with her as a mover. And he called me this morning and said, ‘Son, I have good news, I can finally pay for your college!’ This whole situation made me cry; I never, ever, thought that one day I would go to college as an immigrant, thank you so much, Taylor Swift; I will be grateful forever,” expressed the young man.
There is no doubt that humility and solidarity are also the keys to success and respect; Taylor Swift’s heart is proof of that.
