Taylor Swift’s Eras tour is expected to add more than $225 million to Singapore’s economy.

After performing six concerts in Singapore and wrapping up the Asian leg of her world tour, the 34-year-old singer will add $225 million to $300 million to the city-state’s economy.

Its performance will benefit Singapore’s hospitality, food and beverage, as well as retail activities, according to DBS Bank Ltd. economist Han Teng Chua, report by Bloomberg report published on Thursday.

“These would be mainly supported by higher foreign tourist spending,” Chua told the outlet, adding that the city-state’s economy would be impacted by “a large number of oversees fans attending the Singapore concerts”.

The 14-time Grammy winner – who enjoyed a date night with beau Travis Kelce and his bandmates after her concert on Friday – and due to her six shows,0.2 percentage points of Singapore’s GDP will be added in just the first quarter.

The trade-dependent economy remains fragile, Capital Economics economist Shivaan Tandon, told Bloomberg. ‘But growth should pick up more sustainably from the second half of the year.’

The report comes shortly after the Cruel Summer hitmaker wrapped up the Asian leg of his world tour.

After her last show at Singapore’s National Stadium, she was spotted celebrating with her NFL star beau, Travis Kelce, and her bandmates at Koma Restaurant.

The Super Bowl winner, who is a tight end for the Kansas City Chiefs, attended TayTay’s show and was seen supporting his pop star GF from the stands.

During his concert, he made a sweet dedication to her by repurposing the lyrics of his song Karma and sang: ‘Karma is the guy on the Chiefs / coming straight home to me.’

After performing her incredible set list, Kelce waited to greet Swift as she exited the stage and shared a hug with her.

Her concert the night before was her last show in the country before Swift enjoys a two-month break.

In May, she will embark on her European tour, which will last four months and begin in Paris, France.

This marks the first time in their relationship that they can both be away from the clock — it will be interesting to see what they do with that time … and how it affects their relationship.
