FOXBORO, Mass. (WWLP) – The countdown is on until Taylor Swift brings her record-breaking “The Eras Tour” to Gillette Stadium this weekend.
Dozens of Taylor Swift super fans woke up very early Thursday morning for a chance to buy merchandise for “The Eras Tour,” some showed up as early as 2:30 a.m.
“Since 11:15 today, so just a little bit. Two hours! We’re almost there though,” said Victoria Reichenbach of Connecticut.
“We flew in this morning so we didn’t even stop, we came right from the airport,” said Tracy Atcheson of Maryland.
Swift is scheduled to play three sold out shows on Friday, Saturday and Sunday in Foxboro. This year, fans without tickets won’t be allowed into stadium parking lots and getting to the stadium is expected to be a challenge.
“We’re trying to think around 11, just to make sure we’re not stuck in traffic. And we don’t actually miss any of the fun,” said Kiera Michaud of Rhode Island.
Fans can take the commuter rail into Foxboro, if they were lucky enough to get a ticket or face the risks of potentially waiting a few hours to get into the concert venue. So far, Swift fans have completely sold out Boston hotels, trains and even restaurants as fans try to secure a spot.
“As soon as there was even rumors of those tour, all of the hotels sold out. And then it was $1,000 to stay here, I was like., ‘Oh, I’m in college! I can’t really afford that,” said Reichenbach.
It’s been a long time coming. Fans can expect everything from secret songs and of course the exchanging of friendship bracelets among fans. Over 65,000 people are expected in and out of Foxboro so if you have tickets to any of the three nights, be sure to come as early as possible
and don’t forget your friendship bracelets. You certainly won’t want to miss a minute of the action.
