Source - Taylor Swift is sharing the wealth from her wildly successful Eras Tour ... in the form of six-figure bonuses for the truckers hauling her equipment all around the country!
Our Taylor sources tell us she gifted each trucker working her tour $100,000 ... handing out the bonus checks before her Saturday show in Santa Clara, CA.
We're told the folks getting the money are production truck drivers who have been hauling Taylor's equipment for The Eras Tour ... there are around 50 truckers for her U.S. tour, which means Taylor just shelled out about $5 million.
Oh hell yes. I don't even have anything funny or sarcastic to say. This is awesome. If I was one of the people whose job it was to unload the truck rather than drive it...I'd wanna jump off a bridge, but that's the way it goes. Not everyone can eat. And I'm not one of these people who will calculate how much money she's expected to make VS how much money she's paying her team, but if I were I would include this photo...
and this link.
That's not me saying she should've given her truckers more money either, that's simply me admiring the fact that this woman is about to make $1.4 BILLION on tour. And you know what? She deserves every penny of it. I'm 33 years old and I haven't seen this much buzz around a concert tour in my lifetime. I just hope she threw in a couple concert tickets for the rest of the crew, which actually may be more valuable than the $100 grand…
Our sources say the checks were an "end of the tour" bonus … remember, the United States leg is coming to a close next week when Taylor plays a series of gigs at SoFi Stadium in Inglewood before moving down to Mexico.
Taylor's nationwide tour has raked in $1 billion in sales … and when the dust settles, she could end up having the highest-grossing tour of all time!!!
Our production sources tell us Taylor also bonused band members, dancers, lighting and sound technicians, caterers, and others. It's unclear how much the non-truckers received, but we're told it was a "very generous amount."
Well there ya go. Apparently everyone got taken care of and Taylor can finally buy that second home in Watch Hill. What a great story to start the day. That's it for this one. Thanks for reading.
