On Aug. 25, 2018, Taylor Swift brought her huge Reputation Stadium Tour to Nissan Stadium. From big snakes to many costume changes and a huge stage, there was never a dull moment when she was performing.

After the release of her much-anticipated sixth studio album, Reputation, Swift announced her upcoming tour that was going to be bigger than ever and restricted to only stadiums. The “Love Story” singer also brought along Camila Cabello, a former member of Fifth Harmony, and Charlie XCX. The tour is the first stadium tour to have all female artists performing.

Since Swift grew up and started her career here in Nashville, she brought many fans from all over the country and world to her home town. The concert featured an abundance of acts that included multiple costume changes and was a huge production. During “Look What You Made Me Do,” there was a large blow-up snake that appeared behind her as she sang the lines, “I don’t trust nobody, and nobody trusts me.”

Just like her 2015 tour, 1989, everyone in the crowd was lit up with bracelets so that she can see everyone. The bracelets are able to flash all different colors during the show, and in some songs, they form distinct things like snakes for “Look What You Made Me Do” and crowns for “King Of My Heart.” When Taylor came out performing “Ready For It,” everyone was excited, filling the stadium with pure joy and excited screams.

During her song “Delicate,”  she rode on a lift that was decorated with many lights and floats to her first B-stage. By doing this, she was able to connect more with the audience that sat in the higher sections of the stadium because she wants everyone to feel included. Because of her 110 foot stage, everyone in the crowd was able to see what was happening, even in the nosebleeds. When she floated to her first B-stage, she sang “Shake It Off” and danced around it. She also brought Camila Cabello and Charlie XCX on stage to sing the song with her. After “Shake It Off,” she did a quick costume change, and she switched to just performing with her voice and guitar. She sang the song “Dancing with Our Hands Tied,” and then went to another side of the B-stage and sang a surprise. Swift does a different surprise song for each show, and at the Nashville show, she sang “Better Man,” which she wrote back in 2012 and sold to country band Little Big Town. She then went on to her second B-stage by walking through the crowd because she wants to be as close to her fans as possible. At this stage, she sang her hit “Blank Space,” followed by “Dress” off her album Reputation. She then got on another lift shaped like a snake and returned to the main stage. Later, she came out with a piano and sang a mashup of “Long Live” and “New Years Day.” When the piano set was done, she sang “Tim Mcgraw,” and she brought out Tim Mcgraw and Faith Hill to sing with her.  She later went on to sing her last set, which included “Getaway Car,” “Call It What You Want,” and “This Is Why We Can’t Have Nice Things.” During “This is Why We Can’t Have Nice Things,” she had a big water fountain with a snake on it that she stood and danced on.

In conclusion, it does not matter if you are a Taylor Swift fan or if you can’t stand her; she puts on an amazing show. That is why I give her a five star rating on her tour.
