Taylor Swift brought her Reputation Tour to the Raymond James Stadium Tuesday night in Tampa Florida with the ultimate fan experience including not just awesome music but a massive 110 foot high main stage, two outlying stages, 30′ cobras on each stage, unbelievable synchronized pyrotechnics exploding in every direction during her opening song Ready For It and I Did Something Bad, huge video screens, incredible dancers, and wristbands for every fan who entered the stadium that were controlled by the lighting crew and changed colors in time to the music (which was mesmerizing to watch and which Taylor Swift said made her feel totally connected to her fans).
Before Taylor Swift took the stage, two other well known female singers wowed the audience. Opening the tour was Charli XCX who immediately had the fans on their feet and singing along with her first song Boom Clap. Charli’s energy and connection with the fans were immediate and continued throughout her seven-song set which she ended with the ever popular Fancy.
Next up on stage was Florida raised Camila Cabello, wearing a Tampa Bay Bucs jersey, who brought her Cuban American music alive with not only her flawless vocals, but her incredible dance crew who killed it during She Loves Control and Inside Out. Camila showed off her amazing vocal range during her piano number Consequences which was shown on the video screens in black and white. Ending her set with the current hit Havana, she had the audience on their feet dancing and ready for the main event.
Taylor Swift proved herself the ultimate entertainer with this tour, paying close attention to every single detail – matching costumes and sets with the music, talking frequently and freely with the audience about her experiences and how she transfers those to her music, mixing her new releases, such as Look What You Made Me Do, End Game, and Call It What You Want, with older releases, such as Love Story, Blank Space, and Lucky One. She brought Charli XCX and Camila Cabello onto one of the outlying stages with her to sing Shake It Off. Taylor then showed her fans one of her many other facets by doing an acoustic Dancing With Our Hands Tied and Invisible, which a fan had requested she do.
It was a night of awesome music performed by three truly strong, badass women!!
