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.
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!!!
Truck drivers aren’t the only ones getting a slice of the pie in the form of bonuses.
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.”
