Heres What Happened at Taylor Swift’s Reputation Stadium SOLD OUT Tour Kickoff Tonight in Glendale, AZ

Taylor Swift launched her highly anticipated Reputation Stadium Tour tonight in Glendale, AZ with special guests Camila Cabello and Charli XCX. More than 63,000 fans made their way to the SOLD OUT University of Phoenix Stadium Tonight (May 8th) for the launch of Swift’s much-anticipated Reputation Stadium Tour in support of her latest album, Reputation, which debuted at No. 1. Swift broke an attendance record previously held by One Direction at tonights stadium performance in Arizona which is currently 103 degrees.

Prior to the tours launch tonight Swift took to Instagram to tell her fans that she has “never been more excited about a tour than I am about this one.,” as she teased snippets of her tour via her Instagram stories all week long leading up to the launch of the tour this evening including showing fans snippets of her wardrobe, her diamond encrusted microphones, telling all about the stage setup, and even showing fans how she will be getting to the stage on her ‘rocket sled,’ which will take Swift to and from the stage at each show. There is even a Reputation Tour Instagram GIF for your stories, just search @taylorswift in the GIF section of your Instagram stories.

Upon arriving to Swift’s dressing room tonight, Swift received a gift from Katy Perry of an Olive Branch to congratulate her on the start of her tour and end their feud. Fans were seen earlier arriving to the venue lining up hours before the gates even opened in their best Swift costumes, and Swift’s merch trucks were out for days leading up to the big launch of the tour tonight.

As fans poured in the venue at doors tonight, they Tweeted their excitement, costumes, and views from their seats via Twitter which you can check out below.

Upon getting inside of the stadium, fans explored the merch booths, their seating views, and also the drink that they were selling inside the stadium called ‘Call It What You Want Lemonade’ which was being sold for $8.00. Fans also spotted a special seating section within the venue called ‘Club Olivia’ which we are going to assume is for either VIP guests or friends and family of Swift. There is also a walkway from the main stage to the B-stages so that Swift can get to and from the stages for her performances.

There are also some activations throughout the stadiums, where fans can take some selfies or Instax photos with Swift cutouts and backdrops. Not to mention while fans were waiting for the performances to begin, video clips from Swift’s secret listening sessions and other behind the scenes and special moments throughout Swifts career were played.

Taylor Swift’s set launched at approx. 8:40pm and ended at about 11pm making for a 2 hour and 20 minute performance from Swift. Launching her set to the introduction by Joan Jett’s “Bad Reputation” before launching into her set with her single “Ready For It” after a video that was the media’s headlines of her.
