Aussie Swifties behold: the queen, Taylor Swift, has officially arrived in Australia and we are just a few sleeps from the games beginning. Are you ready for it?

Part of the fun of the Eras Tour is figuring out if you’re going to be a participant in what has come to be known as a ‘Rain Show’. Essentially, Swift will perform whether or not it rains cats and dogs, and thus you will force yourself to sit in the watery joy with her.

However, it’s not all drenched hair and running mascara. Rain shows have given us some of the most iconic moments on the Eras Tour, from Swift’s piano malfunctioning and appearing possessed, to performing Midnight Rain in the actual rain.

So, as you prep your outfits, we have consulted the Bureau of Meteorology to find out if you’ll be like Taylor in ‘A Place In This World’ and “trying to see through the rain coming down.”
