Taylor Swift to perform at the Cup

Arguably the biggest name in world music is heading to the race that stops a nation.

Global superstar Taylor Swift will perform two songs in the Flemington mounting yard ahead of the 2019 Melbourne Cup.

“The Victoria Racing Club (VRC) is thrilled to announce ten-time GRAMMY® Award-winning, record-breaking global superstar Taylor Swift will perform at Lexus Melbourne Cup Day on Tuesday 5 November, 2019,” a VRC statement read.

“It will be Taylor’s only public appearance in Australia following the release of her critically-loved smash seventh studio album Lover.”

VRC Chief Executive Officer Neil Wilson said the Club was thrilled to welcome Taylor Swift to Flemington for Cup Day.

“Lexus Melbourne Cup Day is the most celebrated day on Australia’s major event calendar and with a reach of 1 billion people globally, it’s only fitting the VRC welcomes the world’s most celebrated star for the event,” Mr Wilson said.

“To think you can come to Flemington and watch not only the race that stops a nation but see one of the world’s biggest, if not the biggest, entertainer perform for the cost of a general admission ticket is phenomenal. We look forward to welcoming Taylor Swift to our wonderful event in just under 54 days.”
