— -- It pays to work with Taylor Swift.
The singer wrote on Instagram that as her 1989 tour comes to a close, she was taking her 125 band and crew members on vacation.
"So stoked to be able to take my band and crew on a vacation at the end of a long and wonderful tour. For all their hard work this year, they really deserve it," she wrote. "Thank you to Hamilton Island for taking such great care of 125 of the people who work tirelessly to make sure the 1989 World Tour stage gets built, the lights are on, the costumes are made, the guitars are tuned, and the show goes on."
The singer, who recently spent time with her family in New Zealand, is currently touring in Hamilton Island in Australia. She has six shows in Oz later this month.
December is proving to be an exciting month for Swift: She will turn 26 on Dec. 13, and is already planning a celebration. Just don't expect it to be a repeat of the blow-out she had last year.
"It'll be a quiet one this year," she promised on Instagram.
