Re: Taylor Swift -- Discussion Thread

So my 10-year-old has become a bit of a hardcore swiftie over the last few months... luckily after the Houston show happened, or I'm sure I'd have been searching for tickets for her and my wife to go. We listened to a lot of her music over the last four weeks, road-tripping and such.

But now she wants all the vinyl albums.

Well, the LAST thing the Levi's Stadium authorities want is major protest at the stadium. Those friendship bracelets (they're originally called kandi by Rave/EDM fans) are a massive part of the Eras Tour, to say the least.

I can sort of understand the ban on battery chargers the way people have been throwing shit a pop musicians lately.

Once you've paid two thousand dollars for a Taylor Swift ticket, losing a $20 portable charger is a small sacrifice to the be the guy who knocked her teeth out like Ted Nugent taking a ball-bearing in the mouth in Kansas City in the 1970s.

People are pissed they can't be outside or near Levis unless they have a ticket.

You can tailgate outside during a 49ers game if you don't have a ticket but no Swifties are permitted to stay in or around the stadium.

Rizzo doesn't strike me as a guy who would hide liking Swift, so I don't think he was denying that he did with his comments.

Still no repeats. I bet she makes it all the way through the US tour without a repeat. She's got what, 7-8 shows left?

I'd be counting my lucky stars and getting him the damn vinyl. All of it.

So my job at the NFL is holding a lottery for 8 Taylor Swift tickets for her concert on August 8th at Sofi Stadium.

I entered for shits and giggles, but I'm not counting on getting one. Around 300+ staffers work at our office at Sofi. The fine print says that some win 1 ticket and others will be offered 2.

Good luck. Iíd be so jealous. I love HAIM almost as much as I love Taylor. Itís cool theyíre playing No Body, No Crime together, but itís a bit of a bummer itís at the expense of Tis The Damn Season, which is a song I really like a lot.

I guess I never thought about the parking at her shows. A radio station in Seattle posted a sign at the stadium parking showing parking was $150. Someone posted a reply that she saw one lot was $210. That's nuts but falls in line with the tour prices.

If I were to win a ticket (which is still unlikely), I can just park at the employee parking lot where our office is (right next to Sofi)

I almost got a job at Sofi.

Parking in Denver was $40. There were cheaper options if you were willing to take a shuttle bus. Hard to imagine scalping parking, but...

Did I miss a post-up thread about the seismic measurements from shake it up? this is insane and leads me to ask is Taylor the Elvis of this generation (and the ones that had no Elvis?) I don't think anyone has come close to Elvis or the Beatles since MJ. Not even Madona had crowds and followers like this as far as I can recall...

She went past the 11pm curfew last night in Santa Clara.

Oooooh she is in trouble potential 1K fine

U2 got fined a couple of years ago.

So stupid.

The 49ers have had all kinds of problems dealing with these prick politicians.

She has some catchy songs but this hype is way way way out of control.

She is not on the level of the Beatles and she is 33 but most of the people I see waiting in line are young girls and maybe she is not crossing over all the age demographics but wonder how these young girls get the money to go and probably most of them are with their moms.

Maybe there is a record number and historical number of young girls with disposable income in the U.S. to support a Swift tour?

Or their parents who may have the money or are willing to increase their debt. The crowds are overwhelmingly female but span all ages. Mainly the 12-28 range but also some younger, Gen X moms, a few Boomer grandmothers, some straight & guy guy with a few fathers here and there. Demographically there are more youngsters now than ever before so yeah there are probably a record number of young girls as a market.

In my lifetime the biggest act has been Micheal Jackson. The main reason was because of reach. His fan base had young, old, male, female, all races, and all creeds. Past and present no one has come even close to the diversity of their fans. As big and successful as Swift is, she is not that type of all encompassing.

Re: Taylor Swift -- Discussion Thread

I've never been to a more crowded concert with absolutely ZERO lines in the Men's rooms. It was fantastic!

Also I have worn my TS Eras Tour t-shirt like 3 times so far and each time I get no less than five compliments on it, all from women. If I were single it would be amazing. Best thing, next to a dog, as far as an ice breaker with the ladies.
