Pop superstar Taylor Swift has once again proven her reputation as a generous philanthropist by surprising her Eras Tour bus drivers with substantial $100,000 bonuses.
Taylor Swift Eras Tour
Swift, 33, embarked on her highly anticipated Eras Tour earlier this year which is set to conclude on August 17, 2024, in London, England.
While the tour has been a roaring success in the US, breaking records and selling out venues across the country, the success would not have been possible without the dedication and commitment of her tour crew.
Sources confirmed to People that Swift has given bonuses totaling over $55 million to everyone (from her dancers to riggers, sound technicians and catering, among others) working on her massive show.
TMZ reported that Swift gifted truckers on her tour $100,000 each as an "end of the tour" bonus ahead of her concert stop in Santa Clara over the weekend. The United States leg of the tour is coming to a close this week.
"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," TMZ reported.
Swift's Eras Tour is expected to become the first tour in history to gross over $1 billion dollars.
