The 33-year-old hosted 73,117 fans during Saturday's show in Pittsburgh, landing a new attendance record for the venue.

The staggering number surpassed the record held by Garth Brooks, who welcomed 72,887 concertgoers in 2019, per the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.

As always, Swift's three-hour set was a smash hit with fans, once again spurring social media hysteria from fans unable to hear the weekend's surprise songs live.

The Anti-Hero singer paid tribute to the Pittsburgh Swifties with a sweet social media post on Sunday.

"Pittsburgh thank you for making me feel sooooo at home in my home state. I mean… You broke the all time attendance record and we got to be the first tour to play your stadium twice," she wrote.

"Thank you so much for everything this weekend. You were a mesmerizing crowd, like beyond."

The attendance record comes as no real surprise, given the vicious fight for tickets that has ensued among fans for the past several months.

Taylor Swift's The Eras Tour has had unprecedented demand for tickets

Tickets to The Eras Tour have been in such high demand that Ticketmaster repeatedly crashed during the presale last November, and resold tickets have reached astronomical price points.

Earlier this month, Swift confirmed the stadium tour would travel outside of the US, beginning with Latin America in late August.

Though dates for other regions have yet to be announced, the Lavender Haze artist has assured international Swifties that more shows are on their way.
