Taylor Swift's Eras Tour has booked six nights at Toronto's Rogers Centre delighting fans

Talk about showing a great deal of appreciation.

While wrapping up the U.S. leg of her massive “Eras Tour,” global pop-star Taylor Swift displayed a huge thank you as a show of gratitude to her entire crew and it’s making headlines all over the place.

The 33-year-old “Love Story” singer thanked each of the 50-plus truck drivers for transporting the tour’s equipment across the country on her “Eras Tour” with bonus checks for $100,000 before her second performance in Santa Clara, Calif., on July 29, per TMZ.

And with around 50 drivers in her tour crew, the singer reportedly shelled out $5 million in monetary gifts, according to reports from Us Weekly.

“Her father was the one that actually presented the checks to our drivers,” Shomotion trucking company CEO Mike Scherkenbach said to Today. “And he presented handwritten letters from Taylor. It’s incredible that they would take that time, and what it means to our staff to be recognized.”

Swift also reportedly gave her band, dancers, caterers, lighting, sound technicians and staff members bonuses, but those amounts have not been made public.

However, People Magazine reported all the bonuses totaled more than $55 million.

The “Bad Blood” singer was said to have also donated money during her tour, including to the Second Harvest Food Bank last week while she was in Northern California.

“Having somebody like Taylor reach out and inspire others with her gift really is just such a breath of fresh air,” Leslie Bacho, CEO of Second Harvest of Silicon Valley, said to Today.

The grand gesture comes days before the singer is set to play her final “Eras” shows in the U.S. at Los Angeles’ SoFi Stadium, where she will perform six dates, beginning Aug. 3. She will then travel to Mexico later this month to kick off the international leg of her tour, taking her to places such as South America, Asia, Australia and Europe through 2024.

If all goes according to plan, Len Goertz will attend eight Taylor Swift shows during her Eras Tour, including one in Toronto as she makes her way to Canada next year.

The superfan from Regina has already seen three shows since Swift kicked off the tour in the United States earlier this year, he’ll attend two back-to-back concerts in Los Angeles this week and will then travel to Sweden and Austria for two more tour stops next year.
