Taylor Swift is turning a Cruel Summer into a pleasant one for her Eras Tour team.

According to People magazine, the pop queen, who will perform six sold-out concerts at Inglewood's SoFi Stadium, recently handed bonuses worth more than $55 million to everyone involved in the production of her enormous show, including her dancers, riggers, sound specialists, and caterers.

Before her concert stop in Santa Clara over the weekend, Swift, 33, reportedly gave each of the tour's truckers a $100,000 gift, according to a prior TMZ report.

The Grammy winner dazzled fans with a 44-song setlist when she began her tour in March in Glendale, Arizona. Since then, Miles Teller, Drew Barrymore, Reese Witherspoon, Gigi Hadid, Paul Rudd, and other well-known figures have attended her shows.

Swift revealed in June that she would be touring Europe, Asia, and Australia in 2024, as well as the rest of the world. The singer teased that there would be "LOTS" more dates after announcing her first international series of concerts in Latin America earlier in the month.

Swift stunned her Kansas City tour audience during the release of her most recent re-recording, Speak Now (Taylor's Version), by inviting Joey King, Presley Cash, and Taylor Lautner on stage after debuting her brand-new music video for the previously unreleased song I Can See You.

The trio assists Swift in reclaiming her third studio album in the action-packed song video.

"I recorded this album when I was 32 (and still growing up, now) and the memories it brought back filled me with nostalgia and appreciation. For life, for you, for the fact that I get to reclaim my work. Thank you a million times, for the memories that break our fall," she wrote on Instagram upon the record's release.
