Which artist is the most tiring to see live? Yeah, her.

[A report by Elisa F.G. – AC]

Dearest Canadian Swifties,

We know you are hurting real bad, we know you’re doing your best to cope and we are here for you. This is bad.

*heart hands*

Taylor Swift recently announced her Eras Tour dates, and guess what country was missing from the list? I’ll give you a hint, “#CriesInCanadian” is trending at the moment. We, the Swifties of the North are filled with grief and sadness and anger. Tay-Tay: Are we never, ever, ever, ever getting back together? (There’s even been a “parliamentary grievance” filed in Alberta about the snub.)

If there’s a silver lining, it’s this. At the very least, Swift fans can rest up and not risk fan fatigue this summer. A large percentage of North Americans suffer from extreme fan fatigue due to the growing number of awesome concerts heading our way.

According to a research study conducted by PureGym, out of all the big name musicians hitting the road right now, Taylor Swift’s Eras Tour is the most exhausting concert to attend and exerts the most energy from its audience.

“You’re likely to hit over 15,000 steps at a concert with all the dancing, and Swift’s Eras Tour takes things up a notch, with approximately three hours of time spent performing (not counting any interludes or set changes) and an average BPM of 122 across the 40-plus songs on her setlist, which is classed as a fast tempo – meaning that fans are in for an upbeat marathon of a show!” Says Personal Trainer Chris Collett, PureGym.

To identify how “high energy” each show was, the overall average BPM (beats per minute) of each song played, measured against the progressive song length of each set, is how we now know Taylor Swift, Bad Bunny, The Cure, Bruce Springsteen, Beyonce, 50 Cent, Kendrik Lamar, Radiohead, Coldplay and Metallica are the most tiring artists to see live. Yes you read that correctly, Metallica ranked tenth and Bruce Springsteen will tucker you out quicker than Beyonce.
