Now Prime Minister Anthony Albanese, 60, has revealed himself to be a Swiftie – literally a fan. The politician told Australian media that he had bought concert tickets for one of four sold-out mega shows at Sydney's Accor Stadium.

He admitted on FoxFM that he wouldn't be the most famous person at the event in his home country. “Sydney is just as obsessed with Tae Tae as Melbourne was last week,” he said. “Day Day” is one of Swift's many nicknames.

Swift's first show had to be postponed

However, the first show scheduled for Friday evening was not auspicious. About 90 minutes before kick-off, a severe storm hit, forcing the evacuation of uncovered areas of the stadium. Organizers have announced that the start of the concert may have to be postponed due to fears of severe thunderstorms.

More than 80,000 fans secured tickets, which cost up to 1,200 Australian dollars (730 euros) for the most expensive seats. A total of four concerts are scheduled in Sydney until Monday.
