Donning face paint and holding glittery signs, fans of Taylor Swift flocked to Paris on Monday for the American pop star’s “City of Lover” concert.
Tickets for the concert, which is Swift’s only performance promoting her new album “Lover,” were not for sale, but were distributed through contests worldwide.
Hoping to catch a glimpse of Swift as she arrived, some hopeful fans, who colloquially call themselves “Swifties,” had come to the venue without having tickets to the concert.
Swift’s new album has already broken records in China, with over one million total streams, downloads and sales within a week of its release.
The album’s combined total sales made it China’s most-consumed full-length international album ever in its first week.
