Taylor Swift has officially announced her upcoming tour for Lover but this time she’s doing things a lot differently.
Tuesday morning she announced she will only be making two stops in the United States next year, and they both happen to be located at NFL stadiums.
The comcerts are being named Lover Fest and will start West at the still-under-construction SoFi Stadium in Los Angeles, making her the first woman ever to open a new NFL stadium. Soon after, Swift flies to Massachusetts for Lover Fest East at Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, Mass.
Each U.S. Lover Fest stop will include two back-to-back performance dates — West on July 25 and 26, and East on July 31 and Aug. 1. If fans want to see Swift perform Lover songs sooner, and are willing to make the trip, she will be touring stadiums in Europe — with one stop in Brazil — from June 20, 2020 to July 18, 2020.
In an Instagram post Swift explained that she wants to celebrate the album and perform it live with in a way that feels authentic to the music. “I want to go to some places I haven’t been, and play festivals for the first time in ages…and where we didn’t have festivals, we made some.”
Opening acts have yet to be announced, but tickets go on sale to the general public on Oct. 17, 2019.
