The Reputation Stadium Tour is Taylor’s 5th stadium tour to date, and by far the most ambitious, especially now with a custom designed stage. The stage for the tour was designed exclusively for Taylor and features two large catwalks that extend the main stage and create three pits for the fans. In addition to that, there are two B stages that can be used as propellers to help Taylor reach every single fan in the stadium. Taylor, has been a part of everything in planning of the tour, from the design of the stage, to the selection of her dancers and the creation of the setlist.
Taylor and” The Reputation Stadium Tour” team have created her best and most incredible tour ever, and that took time:

  •  6 months of planning
  • 3 months of music rehearsals
  • 5 weeks of stage rehearsals in Burbank and Inglewood
  • 2 weeks of dress rehearsals at the Rock Lititz studios in Pennsylvania

Over the course of 7 months and 51 shows, The “Reputation Stadium Tour” will visit:

  • 35 Stadiums
  • 35 Cities
  • 6 Countries
  • 3 Continents

Here are 5 tour secrets from E News about the Reputation tour…

#1: Bigger Is Better: Tay said, “The stage is the biggest stage we’ve ever had – It’s 110 feet tall.”

#2: Life’s a Stage: In her Instagram Stories, she revealed, “Both of the B stages that are out in the audience are pretty much just as big as the main stage on the 1989 tour.”

#3: Video Didn’t Kill the Radio Star: Taylor added, “Something that we’ve never had before is that we have a video screen wall and it’s pretty seamless.”

#4: Getting Floored: “[The video screen wall] continues down to the floor so everything that we’re walking on stage is a screen,” said the 28-year-old.

#5: Perfect Illusion: Swift admits it’s taking some getting used to: “It looks so cool from the upper sections of the stadiums. When we’re walking on it, it kind of feels like an optical illusion, but we’ll get used to it – I promise.”

End Game

This tour has been planned for the fans – those who have been following her for years and expect nothing but the best from her. Taylor is ready to have her biggest and most technologically advanced tour to date and give all of her fans the opportunity to see her as closely as possible from every single part of the venue. Go Behind The Scenes of The Reputation Stadium Tour for an exclusive look before it’s curtains up and light the lights!

The first tour tidbit that the global sensation has shared is that she’ll be playing 10 songs from previous albums on this tour. She’s never done a greatest-hits set; don’t expect her to start now, especially due to the fact that Reputation as a body of work is unto itself a greatest-hits package. Each song on this, her sixth album, is an aggressive, lascivious display of craftmanship with bulletproof hooks and sticky turns of phrase. To see and hear these songs come to life on stage is nothing short of… “EPIC!” The killer openers Charli XCX and Camila Cabello ensure that this is the hottest tour for not only this summer, but the entire year. Are you ready for it? Obviously!

Be fabulous,

Belinda
