ATLANTA – Taylor Swift’s Reputation Tour has officially landed in Atlanta. Are you Ready For It?
Thousands of fans will be flocking Mercedes-Benz Stadium on Friday and Saturday to witness what Billboard says is the peak of TSwift’s career.
Taylor Swift last came to Atlanta with her 1989 World Tour in October of 2015. This year, Swift is accompanied by Carli XCX and Camila Cabello as her openers.
To ensure you enjoy the concert, there are some things you need to know before you head out the door donned in your snake-inspired outfit.
First off, don’t forget your tickets. Mercedes-Benz is going digital for the concert so make sure you have access to your mobile tickets.
To ensure you won’t have a bad connection at the gate, save your tickets to your Apple or Google Wallet beforehand or even take a screengrab of the tickets on your phone and save them to your photos.
You can enter the stadium at any gate for the concert. You will be required to pass through metal detectors and be screened by the Mercedes-Benz security team.
They ask you to give yourself 10 to 15 minutes for entry. Here's a list of times to keep in mind:
- Box Office opens: Noon
- Bag Valet begins: 3 PM
- Gates Open: 5 PM
- Concert begins: 7 PM
Plan ahead when it comes to your transportation to and from the concert. You have various options when it comes to getting there including rideshare like Uber and Lyft, MARTA (the Dome/GWCC/Philips Arena Station), and parking.
If you plan to drive, Mercedes-Benz suggests you purchase your parking beforehand. You can find the various parking locations with ParkMobile HERE.
Parents, if you’re dropping your minors off there is a specific location for you to go. The parent pick up and drop off zones will be at Andrew Young Int’l Blvd (From GWCC Bldg. B toward Marietta St.) and GWCC Bldg. C Bus Lane (Off Northside Dr.).
Just know there is “absolutely no vehicle standing, waiting, or parking permitted” in these locations.
Just like sporting events, the concert is CLEAR BAGS ONLY. If your bag or wallet is larger than your hand it MUST be a clear bag. If it is larger, you can check it for $5 at the closest bag valet tent located at Gate 1, International Plaza (Red brick sidewalk), and the North Suite Entry.
Clear bags that are allowed include: Bags that are clear plastic, vinyl or PVC and do not exceed 12” x 6” x 12,” one-gallon clear plastic freezer bag (Ziploc bag or similar)
Small clutch bags include: Bags no larger than 4.5” x 6.5” ( a little larger than a credit card ) with or without a handle or strap can be taken into the stadium with one of the clear plastic bag options.
Items not allowed inside the stadium include outside food/drink, noisemakers, laser pointers, selfie sticks, posters, and lights.
You CAN bring in banners, signs, and flags (without poles) but they may not exceed 11” x 17”. Signs must be made of paper or a lightweight material and may not contain offensive material.
You CANNOT bring in cameras with a lens longer than 6” (detachable or non-detachable), laser pointers, noisemakers, tripods, monopods, selfie-sticks, lights, battery packs, and binocular cases.
