The horse race that stops a nation has landed the pop superstar who rules the world. In a major coup for the Victoria Racing Club, Taylor Swift will perform at the Melbourne Cup on November 5.

“I can’t wait to come to Melbourne, and I can’t wait to come to the Melbourne Cup,” Swift told promoter Michael Gudinski, who sealed the deal for the VRC, at an invite-only show in Paris this week. “I’ve heard so much about the race.”

The Shake It Off icon will perform two songs from her new album Lover in lead-up to the world-famous $8 million race. It will be her only Australian performance. Swift will perform in the Mounting Yard, which means she will be visible to anyone with a general admission ticket.

Gudinski, who was in Paris with wife Sue to meet with Swift and her management team, said securing Swift is “a massive statement for the VRC,” and his company, Mushroom Events.
Gudinski credited the deal with good timing, as Swift will be in Asia on a promotional tour in November, and his sellout run of stadium dates with the pop queen four years ago.

Gudinski said the Swift deal took several weeks to lock down. “It’s about working through and trying to manage what the event wants… and what the artist is prepared to do,” he said. “There’s quite a lot of tentacles and things behind the scenes, “but I couldn’t be prouder of Mushroom Events, and happier for the VRC.”
