Bug run-ins during Swift family road trips, roller coasters and kangaroos with Blake Lively, a vacation with her 125-person tour crew, an acoustic performance for 100 lucky fans and playing live for crowds of up to 76,000 people: The Australian leg of Taylor Swift’s 1989 World Tour has been a memorable one. And those dates, which culminated in Melbourne, also marked the end of the singer’s 8-month-long world tour in support of the album 1989.
“Melbourne, the first two nights with you have been magical. Tonight we play this show for the very last time,” she wrote alongside an Instagram photo before the tour’s final show on Dec. 12. “I’m so honored I get to share the last night of the 1989 World Tour with all of you. This has been the most incredible adventure. Thank you for all of it.”
In another shot posted for fans to see, Swift gets in the middle of a group hug with her crew of 1989 Tour performers. The caption simply reads: “Farewell, 1989 World Tour.”
On one of the earlier Melbourne concert dates, she shared an image of herself in a dramatic onstage pose, writing, “Me acting all moody during Trouble but actually so happy because that Melbourne crowd was INCREDIBLE tonight.”
Swift’s 1989 Tour, which made it to 53 cities and featured 78 different star cameos, kicked off on May 5 in Tokyo and wrapped on Dec. 12 in Melbourne.
