Taylor Swift being 'driven in Beast-like' armoured car for UK leg of The Eras Tour

She once sang that she would one day "be so big that you can’t hit me," and now Taylor Swift is enjoying protection worthy of a president on her world tour.

The singer is reportedly being chauffeured in an armoured £1 million Mercedes V Class, capable of withstanding bullets and bombs.

Swift is known for her differing opinions with Donald Trump, but they do share a similar taste in vehicles. The former president's Cadillac One, now used by Joe Biden, is so heavily secured it has earned the nickname "The Beast."

Swift’s personnel have been seen driving her in a similarly secure V Class for her Eras Tour as it arrived in the UK this week, the Sun has reported.

She opened her British account with a sold out show at Edinburgh’s Murrayfield on Friday and will also play Liverpool, Cardiff, and Dublin as well as eight nights at Wembley Stadium.

The tour, which takes fans on a journey through the different musical stages of her career, has already been a juggernaut and is predicted to provide a £997 million boost to the UK economy.

The Wembley dates are June 21, 22 and 23, and August 15, 16, 17, 19 and 20.

Swift is known to be safety conscious, especially in the aftermath of the tragedy of Ariana Grande’s Manchester concert in 2017.

“After the Manchester Arena bombing and the Vegas concert shooting, I was terrified to go on tour this time because I didn’t know how we were going to keep three million fans safe over seven months,” she said.

“There was a tremendous amount of planning, expense and effort put into keeping fans safe.

“My fear of violence has continued into my personal life. I carry QuikClot army grade bandage dressing, which is for gunshot or stab wounds.”

UK and Irish fans will be treated to a significantly different show to that seen in the US leg.

Swift has overhauled her setlist, staging and costumes following the release of her latest album The Tortured Poets Department.
