Taylor Swift’s Reputation Stadium Tour is the fifth concert tour by American singer-songwriter Taylor Swift, in support of her sixth studio album, Reputation (2017) and will be stopping by The U.S. Bank Stadium on both August 31st and September 1st. The supporting acts for the tour are Charli XCX and Camila Cabello.
The tour has received rave reviews, being commonly labeled as the best of Swift’s career thus far and the best tour of 2018. Ed Masley, from The Arizona Republic, wrote that “there were many moments in the course Swift’s performance that felt like she was playing to the back rows of the stadium by simply sharing with her fans”, while complimenting the tour’s production and highlighting Swift’s connection with the crowd. Jim Harrington, from The Mercury News, praised the improvement of the singer’s vocal work and performance skills over the years: “Her game is well-rounded enough that she can excel equally at every different aspect of the show.” Chris Tuite, from CBS San Francisco, wrote: “The only thing more prominent than the singer herself during her current costume-change filled spectacle are the massive, vicious looking snakes that symbolically appear throughout the set.” Michael Tritsch from 303 Magazine commented the tour “broke new ground and set the bar high for future stadium tours” while adding “The reputation of this show burned its way into the history books”.
The tour has broken multiple venue attendance and grossing records. The debut performance at University of Phoenix Stadium set new venue records in both gross and attendance, topping Metallica’s $5.2 million gross earned in August 2017 by almost $2 million. With 59,157 tickets sold, she also broke the attendance record set during One Direction’s Where We Are Tour in 2014 by 2,633 seats. With a $14 million take from 107,550 sold tickets at Levi’s Stadium she topped her own gross and attendance counts set during The 1989 World Tour in 2015. With more than 118,000 fans in attendance at the Rose Bowl, the two-show run earned $16.2 million and set a new gross record for a single headliner at the venue, surpassing U2’s 2017 record by over $467,000. Grossing records previously set by U2 as well were broken at Seattle’s CenturyLink Field, where she topped their Joshua Tree Tour 2017gross by $2.4 million, and Denver’s Sports Authority Field at Mile High, where she surpassed the $6.6 million gross set by the band in 2011 during their 360° Tour by $1.2 million.
