Taylor Swift to Play Nissan Stadium Aug. 25

TaylorSwift2017-620

After around a dozen performances at Bridgestone Arena over the past decade, pop megastar and former/sometimes Nashville resident Taylor Swift has opted to elevate to stadiums rather than multi-night runs at arenas when she hits the road in 2018 in support of her just-released new six album, Reputation, and when she returns to Music City on Aug. 25, it’ll be at Nissan Stadium this time around, headlining the massive local space for the first time.

Continuing the pop shift that largely begin on 2012’s Red and really found its stride with 2014’s 1989Reputation showcases a darker, more adult thematic focus from the onetime country pop artist, as well as a grittier, more abrasive, electropop leaning sound. With nearly a million copies sold over the weekend- unprecedented in this age of streaming- it’s a forgone conclusion that the LP is well on its way to becoming another smash hit, and given the speed at which arena dates have sold out in the past, we have no doubt its buzz will propel Taylor to filling Nissan with ease.

Until Nov. 28, fans can register for preferred ticket access through Ticketmaster’s Verified Fan program, and participate in “boost activities” for a better spot in the virtual queue and a better chance at being given early access- a practice that has drawn some controversy, as it encourages fans eager for the best seats to spend even more money (though many boost activities are free and social media based as well). For the general public, tickets will go on sale Dec. 13; even with a capacity of nearly 70,000 though, we don’t expect them to last. Check out a full list of dates below!
