She’s currently touring the UK on her Eras tour – but if you haven’t managed to get tickets to see pop icon Taylor Swift, the next best thing is coming to Doncaster this summer.

A spokesperson for Doncaster Racecourse said: “Getting tickets for the tour has been difficult for many, but a Taylor Swift tribute act is coming to Doncaster Racecourse to provide fans who missed out with a unique experience."

The “Near As” Tour will come to Town Moor on August 17, with Nottingham-based Kaylie Malone stepping into the star’s shoes.

Tickets start at £22 with children under 17 going free - making the ‘Near As’ tour a staggering 36 times more affordable than Taylor’s most expensive tickets, a racecourse spokesman said.

Kaylie said: “It’s been absolutely crazy this year – I can barely keep up with the demand! Come down to Donny Racecourse so we can create a ‘Love Story’ of our own!”

 Though Taylor’s ‘Eras’ tour has sold more than 4.3 million tickets – with the new queen of pop heading to Edinburgh, Liverpool, Cardiff, London and Dublin – there's always a frenzy in the digital world when the hottest ticket in town goes on sale. This is despite the sky-high prices. 

With tribute act Kaylie capturing the looks, voice and style of Taylor – complete with stunning handmade replica tour outfits and an impressive setlist spanning the entire discography of the most-streamed artist on Spotify – the day at Doncaster Racecourse represents fantastic value for money.
