Taylor Swift mania is ready to hit Liverpool later this week following on from an epic first leg of the Eras Tour in Scotland at the weekend.

With Anfield ready to host three sell-out gigs from Thursday, fans are eager to see the songstress. Now, pictures of the famous ground usually home of Liverpool FC, show the preparation in full swing days in advance.

Aerial photographs of the famous stadium shows the green grass completely covered as the stage and ground-level fan zones are getting prepped. Huge cranes are in place to get the stage assembled with the massive speakers already standing tall.

Elsewhere, fans have been stopping to take selfies alongside the Lover album artwork in the city, which is part of its Taylor Town Trail based on her album eras. Another image showed The Tortured Poets Department artwork which is part of the Taylor Town Trail too, as well as the love heart tunnel.

The latest snaps come as police in the region issued fans a stern warning ahead of the gigs. Merseyside Police have pleaded with fans not to camp out near the stadium in the days before Thursday's first gig.

Ch Supt Zoe Thornton, who is overseeing Taylor Swift operation urged fans to "only travel when the concert is opening" and also warned them "do not camp". She said: "We have got two elements for early entry for the pitch, so there will be staggered times so that should help resolve people queuing unnecessarily, our advice is to only come when the concert is opening.

"But knowing the stands and seeing the actual view of the stadium you are going to have a really good view of Taylor Swift."

She also stated the police force is ready for fans to try to camp out - as they have done ahead of other gigs on the tour. However, she reiterated this is not allowed and shared local bylaws that say camping at Stanley Park is prohibited.

"Do not think you can camp, and look to secure proper accommodation," she added.

The city will see a number of added measures included on the days of the concerts. Roads near the stadium are set to be closed from midday, while nearby key train stations will also have increased police patrols. The public has been asked to be "vigilant and to trust their instincts" during the shows.
