Taylor Swift has been hiding in a janitor’s cart to arrive on stage at Eras tour

It's me, hi, I'm the janitor it's me.

Taylor Swift has cleverly avoided attention during her latest tour by being transported to stage inside a janitor’s cart, new video footage reveals.

Proof of the ingenious ruse comes courtesy of a TikTok user who shared footage from Swift’s Eras Tour show at the AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas, last Sunday (April 2).

The fan had purchased “obstructed view” tickets for the gig, which meant they were able to see a portion of the area behind the stage. While such a view might usually be considered a disadvantage, TikTok user Shay was able to film the moment that roadies wheeled out a cabinet filled with mops and brooms, before Swift eventually emerged and walked onto the stage.

The elaborate get-up means Swift is able to be transported through the crowd while avoiding attention from ardent fans. She has previous form for this kind of thing too, having previously hid inside a giant suitcase to avoid paparazzi while being taken from her hotel to the car.

Similarly, Adele was hidden inside an oversized flight case in order to be transported to a stage in the middle of the crowd on her ’25’ tour, while Ed Sheeran has said he is using a similar unspecified technique on his current tour.

Swift’s Eras tour kicked off in Glendale, Arizona, last month with a critically acclaimed, sprawling three-hour run through her career.
