Buckingham Palace's Military Band Plays Taylor Swift's ‘Shake It Off' as Eras Tour Arrives in London

London's got Taylor Swift on the brain! Buckingham Palace's military band performed a rendition of the pop superstar's 2014 Billboard Hot 100 No. 1 hit "Shake It Off" recently, ahead of Swift's first Eras Tour show at Wembley Stadium.

"Can't stop, won't stop groovin'," the royal family commented on the performance video - a play on the song's lyrics - on Instagram Friday (June 21), hours ahead of Swift's concert.

In the clip, the band members - dressed in their official uniforms - stood on the grounds of Buckingham Palace as they performed the song on saxophones, tubas, trombones and other wind instruments as the conductor guided them. The performance was appropriately named "Changing of the Guard (Taylor's Version)," according to the Instagram post's label.

"Coincidentally the motto of The Rifles is ‘Swift and Bold,'" the British Army also noted in the comments section.

Swift's Eras Tour is set for three shows at Wembley Stadium June 21-23. Paramore is the special guest for all three shows, with METTE opening the kickoff concert, Griff the second show and Benson Boone the third.

The pop superstar just wrapped a show June 18 at Principality Stadium in Cardiff, her first time performing in Wales. "That was truly out of control in the best way – looking out into that massive, bouncing, dancing sea of people… I'll never forget it," she captioned a carousel of photos on Instagram after the concert. "I'm absolutely living for these UK crowds."

Swift, who kicked off the global Eras Tour in March 2023, recently shared with her fans that the long-running trek would be ending. During her June 13 performance in Liverpool, England, she told the crowd at Anfield Stadium, "The celebration of the 100th show means this is the very first time I've ever acknowledged to myself and admitted that this tour is going to end in December," she said. "Like, that's it."
