There’s a lot of famous Swifties.

Taylor Swift attracted about 150,000 people to her Aviva Stadium gigs during her three-night stint in Dublin over the weekend.

Among them were a very interesting mix of celebrities which decided to show up in the VIP tent.

A very special guest showed up for Swift’s final show on Sunday night, Fleetwood Mac singer Stevie Nicks.

Nicks’ appearance was so special that Swift even dedicated her performance of ‘Clara Bow’ to the 76-year-old – the first time it was performed live.

“The reason I want to play this tonight is because a friend of mine is here who is watching the show and who has really been one of the reasons why I or any female artist gets to do what we get to do,” said Swift.

“She’s paved the way for us. And she’s mentored so many artists,” she continued. “She’s a hero of mine and also someone that I can tell her any secret and she would never tell anybody.”

As well as Nicks, there were a whole bunch of famous faces that turned up to see the 34-year-old perform in the Aviva.

Before the gigs started, Swift had received a bouquet of flowers from U2, alongside a welcome note which read: “Dear Taylor, Welcome back to our hometown… leave some of it standing?!!!!”

Appearing at the first night was Fr Ted star and comedian Ardal O’Hanlon, who was spotted alongside Def Leopard lead singer Joe Elliot.

Star of Michael Collins (and some other films we’ve never heard of) Julia Roberts also showed up at the final night alongside Swift’s boyfriend and NFL star Travis Kelce.

Amy Huberman was also in attendance with her husband, Irish rugby legend Brian O’Driscoll, as well as his former teammates Johnny Sexton and Rory Best.

“Thank you Taylor Swift and your team for a dream of a night. Class act in every which way,” said Huberman after the gig.

TV hosts Graham Norton and Ryan Tubridy also came along, with the former Late Late Show host saying: “What a lovely evening in Dublin.”

He continued: “The gig was spectacular but really it was the crowd that impressed me the most – the kindest, happiest, and sweetest bunch of young people. I arrived bracelet-less and left with an armful of friendship bracelets!”

Bridgerton’s Florence Hunt was also spotted, as well as golfer Shane Lowry alongside his wife Wendy.
