Taylor Swift ‘Eras Tour’ movie premiere shuts down popular Los Angeles shopping center


Thousands of Taylor Swift fans swarmed The Grove in Los Angeles Wednesday for the premiere of “Taylor Swift: Eras Tour.”

The iconic venue, known for its farmers market and multiple high-end shopping spots, was completely closed to host the “Cruel Summer” singer for the debut of her film at the AMC Theatre.

Early on Wednesday morning, the massive outdoor marketplace shared on social media a simple message for followers, “The Grove will be closed today.”
