Taylor Swift’s 1989 World Tour will make its much-anticipated stop in Philadelphia at Lincoln Financial Field on June 12 and 13th. Fans are expected to pack the stadium’s 69,000 seats for the seven-time Grammy winner’s two day stop in Philadelphia. The concert will also feature Australian singer-songwriter Vance Joy as well as Shawn Mendes, singer of the hit song “Life of the Party.”
1989 is Swift’s third album to hit the 1 million first-week sales figure, making her the first artist in history to sell one million or more copies in a week-long period for three albums in a row. As of May 2015, the album has sold 7.5 million copies worldwide. Her singles Shake It Off and Blank Space have been massive, chart-topping hits, and her recently released single Bad Blood, featuring rapper Kendrick Lamar, is currently dominating the airways.
Swift said that her set list for the tour and in Philadelphia will predominantly be songs from 1989, Swift’s “first documented official pop album,” a stylistic change from her previous country-pop. While preparing for 1989, her 4th world tour, Swift said that the biggest challenge will be making the people in the very top rows at her stadium shows still feel like they had an intimate, personal experience, and that she really wants her fans to have a genuine moment of surprise when they see her concert.
Taylor Swift will only be in Philadelphia for two nights before the tour moves on to Europe for the rest of June, and Philadelphia is only one of 11 stadium shows on the tour. For Taylor Swift fans in the Philadelphia area, this show is the can’t-miss event of the summer.
