DENVER — Are you ready for it?

Taylor Swift is coming back to Colorado for the first time in five years.

Swift brings her wildly popular "The Eras Tour" to Empower Field at Mile High in Denver on Friday, July 14, and Saturday, July 15.

Swift last played Empower Field at Mile High in 2018 on her "Reputation" stadium tour.

Since launching "The Eras Tour" in March, Swift has brought her tour to cities across the United States, selling out stadiums, packing parking lots, filling hotel rooms and boosting local economies. Swift will conclude a run of U.S. concerts in Los Angeles in August before heading abroad in 2024.

Here's what you need to know as Swift fans descend on the Mile High City.

Resale tickets on sites like StubHub have single, obstructed, behind-the-stage seats on sale for $1,000.

Swift's tour caused a meltdown on Ticketmaster's website when ticket registration began in November. The tour shattered the record for ticket sales for one artist in a day.

Ticketmaster sold more than 2 million tickets during the Verified Fan pre-sale, an unprecedented demand that caused outrage among fans and even some government officials.
