Taylor Swift's truckers for her Eras Tour concert are living the extravagant life as the pop superstar has given them a huge sum of money amounting to six figures as bonus for their work.

According to sources gathered by TMZ, Taylor had gifted each trucker hauling the equipment needed for her concerts a total of $100,000 (P5.5 million) bonus checks just before her upcoming show in Santa Clara, California.

The sources shared that there are around 50 truckers for her U.S. tour, which means that Taylor had just spent about $5 million (P274 million) to pay them their "end of the tour" bonuses. The singer's U.S. leg is set to conclude at SoFi Stadium in Inglewood before moving to Mexico.

As if that wasn't enough, Taylor had also given bonus checks to band members, dancers, lighting and sound technicians, caterers, and others. While it was not made clear how much, production sources said that it was a "very generous amount."

A report by Business Today stated that Taylor's Eras Tour is likely to gross $1 billion (P54 billion) soon. As of July 3, it has managed to garner $300 million (P16 billion) so far through 22 dates.

The concerts have an average of 54,000 fans in attendance at every stop, making Taylor reportedly bring in more than $13 million (P700,000) a night of her show.  

The Midnights singer’s Eras Tour kicked off on March 23 in Glendale, Arizona, and is now scheduled to end Aug. 17 next year in London, England.
