Taylor Swift's The Eras Tour and Passion Tourism

Taylor Swift's The Eras Tour is sparking a new kind of travel: passion tourism. Fans like Nikita Rao plan trips around her concerts, mixing city visits with shows. Rao's family, from Maryland, built a week in London and Amsterdam around Swift's performances.
