Taylor Swift Fans Made The Earth Move, Seismic Activity Recorded In Edinburgh
The fans caused the most commotion during three songs.

At Taylor Swift's three Edinburgh concerts last weekend, thousands of fans cheered and danced so much that seismic activity was recorded by the British Geological Survey (BGS), as per a report in BBC. The seismic activity detected by monitoring stations was as far away as 6 kilometres (3.73 miles).

The ‘Swifties' caused the most commotion during three songs- "Cruel Summer", "Ready For It?" and "Champagne Problems." It also showed that the 73,000-person crowd danced, yelled, and stomped the loudest of the three performances. It was the first of Swift's 17 UK appearances, which will end with an eight-night run at London's Wembley Stadium.

Seismograph data analysis revealed that the most "enthusiastic dancing" occurred on June 7, “although crowds on each night generated their own significant readings," the BGS stated. It continued, “Whilst the events were detected by sensitive scientific instruments designed to identify even the most minute seismic activity many kilometres away, the vibrations generated by the concert were unlikely to have been felt by anyone other that those in the immediate vicinity.”
