FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (WLNE) — Many Taylor Swift fans’ “Wildest Dreams” will come true this weekend during her three-night show at Gillette Stadium.

She tweeted her appreciation for Swifties after her shows in Philadelphia, saying she’s excited to bring the “Eras Tour” to Foxborough.

It’s a “Love Story” between Taylor and the venue, which changed its Twitter to include her lucky number, 13, and branded itself “Taylor’s Version,” an homage to her re-releasing new versions of her past albums.

Gillette even changed its bio for this highly-anticipated concert weekend. It reads: “The official Twitter account for Gillette Stadium, home of Taylor Swift’s first NFL stadium show.”


Those going to Gillette this weekend are welcome to bring friendship bracelets to trade with fellow Swifties, while keeping bag rules in mind.

Clear bags can be no larger than 12″ x 6″ x 12″ and non-clear bags can be no larger than 4.5″ x 6.5″. Backpacks and devices like selfie sticks will not be allowed.

A full list of what to bring and what not to bring can be found online.

Questions can be sent to teamops@gillettestadium.com. Allow at least 48 hours for a response.


Parking lots will open at 2:30 p.m. Friday through Sunday. Gillette has general parking for ticketholders on the opposite side of Route 1.

Fans are advised to give themselves plenty of time to get there; the concerts are expected to bring over 150,000 Swifties to Gillette.

Doors will open at 4:30 p.m. and showtime is slated for 6:30 p.m.

Heads up, Swifties: Gillette only does contactless payment — no cash.

Gillette said the upcoming summer of concerts is record-breaking.

Following Swift, the stadium will host Ed Sheeran, Luke Combs, Beyoncé, Bruce Springsteen and The E Street Band, as well as Billy Joel and Stevie Nicks.
