Taylor Swift as college course? Scottish Uni offers masterclass to non-Swifties ahead of Eras tour



Parents of Swifties, here’s your chance to be up to date with all of Taylor Swift’s songs, her style and more before taking your kids to one of her concerts. Glasgow Clyde College is offering a class on the pop star ahead of her Edinburgh concert in June. Swift will take her iconic Eras Tour to Scotland and the excitement around the concert has led to this unique class. 

According to a report in the BBC, the college will reportedly make parents of Taylor Swift fans understand her songs, her evolving wardrobe and hairstyle and what the crowd usually chants at her gigs. 

Swift’s latest album, The Tortured Poets Department – which references Scottish band the Blue Nile on one song – topped the UK charts with the biggest first-week sales in seven years.

Staff at the college said the session on 7 May would help non-Swifties fully appreciate “iconic moments” in the set.

Robert Anderson, the college’s curriculum assistant principal spoke to BBC and said, “We understand that not everyone will be up to speed on all things Taylor and might not get the full Eras experience.”

“That’s why we created this masterclass – to prepare those who’ll be heading along to the gig with their superfan kids, friends or partners to ensure they have just as memorable a time.”

“Taylor’s gigs are known for being so well crafted, and unless you’re a fan yourself, you might miss some of the iconic moments.”

The class is free and will last for 90 minutes at the college’s Langside campus.

Millions of people have registered for the chance to get tickets for the singer’s UK tour when it was announced last year. The Murrayfield shows reportedly sold out almost instantly.

Demand for the shows has led police to warn fans to beware of online scams, after Police Scotland received 16 reports in two weeks from Aberdeen, Edinburgh, the Borders and Lanarkshire.

Taylor Swift will be performing three nights in Edinburgh which is being touted as the biggest stadium shows ever held in Scotland.
