Twelve-time Grammy Award winner Taylor Swift brought out all the “Swifties” from across the nation for her “Eras Tour” stop in Kansas City at GEHA Field at Arrowhead Stadium on July 8th! Swift took her fans down memory lane for nearly 4 hours, performing hits from throughout her 17-year career in the music industry.
Over 70,000 fans sang along to every song she performed, including songs from her “Lover,” “Red,” and “Fearless” albums, totaling over 40 songs! Swift took fans on a magical adventure, performing songs from albums she had not yet toured, including Lover (2019), Evermore (2020), Folklore (2020), and Midnights (2022). The visuals, costumes, and arrangements from those musical works wowed the crowd, with one fan exclaiming, “That’s my favorite dress!”
The concert kicked off with music from singer and songwriter Gracie Abrams. Next, indie pop group MUNA took the stage, featuring core group members Kate Gavin, Josette Maskin, and Naomi McPherson, as well as bassist Brian Robert Jones and drummer Scott Heiner, performing songs spanning their 10-year music career.
The visual experience of the tour gave fans a 4-D stage design with top-tier production and innovative stage design, pyrotechnics, and screens featuring image projections. Taylor, along with her band, background singers, and dancers, performed on LED platform displays with hydraulics.
In the audience, fellow Swifties hugged each other and cried together, stating that this was the best experience of their lives. Fans also exchanged Swiftie bracelets that featured encouraging words and uplifting quotes.
