    15 Reasons You're Gonna Want (No, Need!) To Buy A Ticket To Taylor Swift's "Reputation" Tour

    The main reason being that she's Taylor Swift, TBH.

    If you're waiting until the show to be surprised, but haven't gotten your tickets yet, be sure to get them from Ticketmaster ASAP!

    1. First thing's first: THE STAGE. Some musicians have a long catwalk, some musicians have no catwalk. Taylor Swift? Queen of making sure she's as close to as many fans as possible during her concerts? TWO CATWALKS! TWO!

    ^X marks the spot where I fell apart BECAUSE OF THIS ICONIC STAGE.

    2. Similarly to how there are two catwalks, there are two B-stages! She flies to the first B-stage, performs a few songs, walks to the second B-stage, performs a few songs, and flies back to the main stage — she's really all about hitting every area of the venue.

    And if you're by that barricade she walks through to get from one B-stage to the other, you may just have a chance to high-five the holy hands that wrote the masterpiece of our time, "All Too Well."

    3. When you go to a Taylor show, not only are you going to see Taylor, but you're potentially also going to see a super famous special guest artist. So far, she's surprised crowds with Selena Gomez, Troye Sivan, Niall Horan, Shawn Mendes, and Robbie Williams.

    4. The COSTUMES — I'm obviously not saying to buy a ticket for the clothes she wears, BUT!, they do add an extra special element to the songs. I especially love this sparkly dress/jacket combo that's giving me rain goddess vibes.

    5. Even better than Tay's outfits are her fans who show up to the shows in costumes they worked SO HARD to make. This fan, Lotte, spent hours recreating the iconic "You Belong With Me" pull-apart costume from the Fearless tour, with a recreated version of one of Swift's Reputation tour bodysuits.

    And this fan, Adia, made a genius costume based off of play-on words from "...Ready For It?" — "I, I, see" —> "I, I, ICEE."


    6. Which brings me into my next reason — THE REP ROOM. Fans are chosen by Andrea Swift and Taylor's team, Taylor Nation, to meet Taylor for free either before or after the show in a backstage room filled with drinks, snacks, and photo ops.

    One of those photo ops, of course being with Taylor. 😍

    7. And while meeting Taylor is cool and all, there's also the chance to meet Andrea or Scott Swift, AKA THE REASON WE HAVE THE NATIONAL TREASURE THAT IS TAYLOR ALISON SWIFT.

    Andrea can be found making sure Swifties are having a good time and giving out Rep Room passes to deserving fans, while Scott can be found handing out guitar picks and just being the lovable guy he is.

    8. Every little detail of the tour is thoroughly planned. One of those details is these light-up bracelets we were first introduced to during the 1989 tour that flash colors in sync with different songs. Each audience member is given one when they enter the stadium, and of course you get to keep it as a souvenir!

    9. Each night, Swift picks a new "surprise song." The tradition involves Taylor picking one of her old songs acoustically, and fans not knowing what the song will be until she starts singing it.

    @CobySwift13 / Via Twitter: @CobySwift13

    So far she's performed "All Too Well" (2x), "Wildest Dreams," "The Best Day," "Red," "Holy Ground" (the song in this clip), "Teardrops On My Guitar," "Our Song," "22," "I Knew You Were Trouble," "I Don't Wanna Live Forever," "Mean," "How You Get The Girl," "So It Goes," and "Fifteen."

    10. She goes all the way back this tour, like back to Taylor Swift days back. Like, I'm literally dedicating a reason to buy a ticket to see Taylor on tour to the fact that she sings "Should've Said No." The old Taylor isn't that dead. Not to mention she does a KILLER mashup of it with "Bad Blood," that will slay you to Venus and back.

    Good morning to everything & @taylorswift13 SINGING SHOULDVE SAID NO DURING REP TOUR. wtffffhahdhahdfaldjfj. I died so many times on this tour.

    11. That's not the only mashup she does. She has a few mashups, and this one of "Love Story" and "You Belong With Me" is enough of a reason to become a Reputation tour groupie, IMHO.

    taylor transitioning from love story to you belong with me wAS ICONIC most of us didn’t even realise when the songs switched because we knew the words #repTourLondon

    12. Of course, we have to address the fact that Taylor has once again chosen incredible opening acts — Charli XCX and Camila Cabello. We stan a badass all-female tour.

    Not to be dramatic, but I think I'm gonna die after seeing the three of them perform together.

    13. The connection this fabulous gal has with her fans is another reason you're gonna want to buy a ticket to support her beautiful soul. In particular, I'm talking about this one fan who uploaded a video of her shouting, "1, 2, 3... LET'S GO BITCH!" after the "Delicate" intro one night. Taylor saw the video on Tumblr, liked it, and the rest is history.

    Camila caught onto it.

    And now Taylor has integrated it as an essential part of the tour. Just waiting for her to re-release the track with "1, 2, 3, LET'S GO BITCH!" permanently included.

    14. She's taken the social media snake insult and made it into a symbolic representation of the fearless human being she's become this era. Snake fixtures on stage, snake pits, snake microphone, flying in a snake skull across the audience — we love a queen with a sense of humor.

    15. Last, but certainly not least, the MERCH. It's not just basic tees and glow sticks. The merch is actually so trendy and so cute, like yasssss for fashun.

    Shop the merch here!

    So if you don't have your tickets to Taylor Swift's Reputation stadium tour, be sure to grab yours before it's too late! They're available on Ticketmaster, StubHub, and SeatGeek. Trust me when I say, you don't wanna miss this — I'm ready to have my wig snatched when I see it on July 20th.
