SMS and I participated in the 2023 cultural Zeitgeist– attending a Taylor Swift concert! I had purchased tickets through the Verified Fan Presale. I know, I was very lucky! I actually went back and forth about whether or not to buy floor seats vs. upper level and somehow did not get completely shut out.
So, if you can’t tell from our photos, I picked the upper level. We were in the first row next to some super cool parents and their kids. Behind us, there were some TS super fans who were cute and, sometimes, ear piercingly shrillingly loud.
We did get to see the celebrities walk by to the Friends of Taylor tent in the middle of the floor seats. Great seats and I need to work on my networking/IG influencer status. We saw Gigi Hadid, a makeup artist, and a few people who were clearly somebody but this cool kid had no idea.
We also saw the cleaning cart, which 100% was the way TS was transported to the stage. It came out with her band and was handled very carefully on the way up and not so much on the way back down after the drop off occurred.
It was a good show. It all sort of worked out to see a pretty anticipated show. I’m dying to know if my colleague who bought tickets to both nights based on his love for the Reputation Tour liked it more or less than his prior experience. Definitely a guy I wouldn’t have guessed was a Swiftie.
