Roughly 50,000 plus Taylor Swift fans crammed in the Rogers Centre tonight to hear, dance, and sing with the megastar Taylor Swift, and they weren’t disappointed.
Taylor Swift brought her Reputation Stadium Tour to Toronto’s Rogers Centre on Friday, August 3. The evening started with special guests Charli XCX and Camila Cabello.
Playing to a full stadium, Taylor took the stage at 9 p.m. with …Ready for It? Clad in a black sequined body suit, Taylor looked like the snake that has become the symbol of her concert, a reference to what people called her on social media after her public breakup with Calvin Harris and feuds with other celebrities. Her performance was filled with video montages, acrobatics, and pyrotechnics, including indoor fireworks. Taylor also brought Camila Cabello and Charli XCX onstage during “Shake It Off”, which ended with a shower of confetti.
For her finale, Swift sang a medley of old and new and sang “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together” and “This is Why We Can’t Have Nice Things.”
Although Taylor is known for bringing her personal life into her songs, some say that Reputation is Swift’s most intimate albums. In one of her many speeches thanking her fans, Taylor expressed deep appreciation, stating that despite all the hits to her reputation, her fans still stuck by her and listened to her music: “It’s like you’ve been reading my diary all these years.”
Taylor plays the Rogers Centre again on Saturday, August 4 before heading to Heinz Field in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania for August 7.
