Man charged with ‘voyeurism’ at Taylor Swift’s Edinburgh show

1 week ago 12



A man has been charged with alleged voyeurism during one of Taylor Swift‘s ‘Eras Tour’ shows in Edinburgh.

The pop star played three concerts at the Murrayfield Stadium in the Scottish capital last week (June 7, 8, 9) to kick off the UK and Ireland leg of her huge career-spanning tour, with Paramore supporting.

As Sky News reports, Police Scotland has since confirmed that one arrest was made at the venue over the weekend.

Superintendent David Happs said: “A 64-year-old man was arrested and charged in connection with a voyeurism offence committed within Murrayfield during the event on Saturday, 8 June.

“He was released on an undertaking to appear at Edinburgh Sheriff Court at a later date.”

Voyeurism is defined as the practice of gaining sexual pleasure from watching, photographing or recording others doing something that is usually private – such as being naked or engaged in sexual activity.

It is an offence when it is done without the other person/people’s permission.

No further information about the incident at Swift’s show is known currently.

In a five-star review of the first gig in Edinburgh, NME wrote: “The ringleader of the entire ‘Eras Tour’ shepherds us through with razor precision, an utter pro whose energy doesn’t waiver throughout.

“And even among the meticulously rehearsed and choreographed performance which runs like clockwork, she finds pockets of humour and moments to connect with the crowd.”

It concluded: “With the ‘Eras Tour’, then, Swift’s managed to craft a marvel of a show that comes with a beating heart.”

Swift gave both ‘The Bolter’ and ‘Crazier’ their live debuts in Scotland last week, and congratulated a couple after spotting them getting engaged in the crowd while she performed ‘Cardigan’.

Sharing a series of photos after the trio of dates, Swift wrote: “Edinburgh!!! You truly blew me away this weekend.

“Thank you for breaking the all-time attendance record for a stadium show in Scotland 3 times in a row and for all the ways you made us feel right at home. Love you, all 220,000 of you!!!”

The singer will also visit Liverpool, Cardiff and Dublin as part of the tour, and play eight sold-out concerts at London’s Wembley Stadium. She recently confirmed extra support acts for her first three dates in the capital (June 21, 22, 23).

Last month, it was reported that the ‘Eras Tour’ would boost the UK economy by £1billion.
