With two performances at State Farm Stadium in Glendale, Arizona, where she debuted her Reputation Tour in 2018, Taylor Swift is about to begin her 2023 Eras Tour. (At that time, the location was known as University of Phoenix Stadium.)
That must be exciting, huh?
Naturally, it is.
On the short list of the most popular musicians of the 20th century is Swift. Since 2018, she has released four albums’ worth of new music, including expanded “Taylor’s Version” re-recordings of “Fearless” and “Red,” as well as “Lover,” “Folklore,” “Evermore,” and “Midnights.”
Since her self-titled debut album in 2006, “Midnights” is the superstar’s tenth studio album, giving her plenty to work with for a concert she has promised will be no less than a “journey through all of my musical eras.”
Swift is also the first act in history to sell out two performances at State Farm Stadium during a single tour.
Because of its size, there are a number of things you should know before you visit, including information on parking, the best time to arrive, and the clear bag policy. Here we go.
