The next stop on Taylor Swift’s international Eras Tour is Sydney, Australia, which means it’s time to get ready for it. Here at Lifehacker Australia, we’ll usually cover the weather for major events like Christmas or Easter, but we figured the Eras Tour was another milestone event worth looking at the forecast for.
Frontier Touring has outlined that certain items won’t be allowed into Eras Tour venues, including umbrellas. So while it might seem like fun to belt out ‘Midnight Rain’ in the rain, it’s worth knowing the weather ahead of time so you can pack a poncho or jacket in that one A4-sized bag.
Here’s how the weather forecast is currently looking for Taylor Swift’s Eras Tour shows in Sydney and Melbourne, according to the Bureau of Meteorology.

It’s a bit of a mixed bag with the weather for Taylor Swift’s Eras Tour in Sydney, Australia. Those going on the Friday or Saturday shows might want to keep an eye out for rain (or manifest it if you want to relive the 2018 Reputation Tour).
Remember that both the MCG and Accor Stadium, where the Aussie Eras Tour has been held, are open-air stadiums, so it’s worth paying attention to the weather to help you plan your outfits and travel accordingly.
A reminder that Taylor will play the show even if it is raining (she’s a trooper) but if a storm comes through that could endanger attendees the set may start late or be postponed depending on the severity.
If you’re missing out over the next couple of weekends, mark your calendars for March, when the Eras Tour will be available to watch at home, regardless of wind, rain or shine.
