DENVER — Bars and music venues across the Denver metro are getting into the Taylor Swift craze ahead of the release of her newest album.

Swift's 11th studio album, The Tortured Poets Department, is set to drop at 10 p.m. MST Thursday. Several establishments are capitalizing on the release — and Swiftie fandom — by hosting listening parties.

There is a lot of economic weight behind Taylor Swift. She brought in big bucks to Colorado when she brought her Eras Tour to Empower Field at Mile High in July 2023.

According to the Common Sense Institute, Swift's two shows contributed an estimated $140 million to Colorado's gross domestic product (GDP). Polls showed concert attendees spent an average of $1,327 on show-related expenses, including food, lodging and travel.

Below are a few album-listening parties happening across the Denver metro.
