Taylor Swift: Reputation Stadium Tour isn’t just full of incredible cutaways to the crowd. Swift’s Netflix special is a love letter to the audience at her shows, and to her fans in general. The special, filmed October 6 at Swift’s last US tour date in Arlington, Texas, is a masterful documentation of the magical energy at a pop show.
Swift didn’t come to my city for the Reputation tour — the closest show to me was the Arlington one, four hours away. Having just drained my concert funds following another pop artist around this summer, I couldn’t afford the cost of a ticket to Swift’s show. Since Arlington was the last stop of the US tour, some of Swift’s most devoted fans traveled from out of state (or out of country) to see her there, driving resale ticket prices sky high. And I certainly wasn’t the only Texan who wished to be there.
Fans of Taylor Swift received the ultimate New Year’s Eve gift with the release of her ‘Reputation’ tour documentary, and the reactions are priceless. Check ’em out here! Taylor Swift, 29, is closing out the Reputation era in the best way: With a Netflix special documenting her epic tour that took her around the world in 2018!
The special was filmed during Taylor’s Dallas, Texas tour stop, and was released on New Year’s Eve 2018. Taylor announced the documentary was coming on Dec. 13, her birthday, and fans have anxiously been waiting for its release ever since. The doc came out at midnight PST, but that didn’t stop thousands of Swifties from staying up and immediately hitting play once it was available.
The general consensus on Twitter is, of course, that the documentary is EPIC, and most fans seem to be truly raving over the performance of “Long Live.” The track came from Taylor’s third album, Speak Now, and served as a message to her loyal fans who’ve stood by her throughout everything. Since the Reputation era was all about Taylor taking back control of her reputation after being tarnished by the public, other celebrities and the media, it was more important than ever for her to dedicate this special song to her fans, who never gave up on her throughout all of the drama.

But this was the biggest pop star in the world on her biggest tour ever. Armed with 50 trucks worth of stage equipment, hundreds of crew members, dancers, backing singers and a full band, Swift’s show had it all.
After Taylor Swift addressed rumours of new music in her acceptance speech at the iHeartRadio Music Awards, Carlos Bustamante and Graeme O’Neil react during ET Canada Live.

Wearing a sequin romper, butterfly-embellished heels and pink hair, Swift accepted the award for iHeartRadio Tour of the Year — and let fans in on a secret in her speech.
“I love your passion, I love your attention to detail, I love how much you care. I love seeing all the things you’re posting online. I just wanted to let you know that when there is new music, you will be the first to know,” the pop star cheekily told the crowd.
If there’s any artist with a catalogue perfect enough for a fairytale moment, it’s Taylor Swift. Love Story, You Belong With Me and Mine are just some of the blissfully amorous songs that would compliment a special moment… Erm, of course brushing over We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together and I Knew You Were Trouble – we’ll save the break-up bangers for another day.
Taylor’s romantic ballads have probably soundtracked hundreds of proposals without her even knowing it. However, she was lucky enough to get a front row seat for the action one magical night on her Reputation Tour in 2018… Anthony Yannuzzi and Stephanie Pysher are devoted Taylor Swift fans. The happy couple, from Upland, Pennsylvania, have been together for six years after meeting at one of Taylor’s Red Tour shows.
Basically, T-Swizz has been part of their relationship since the beginning (and forevermore for that matter). Stephanie told us: ‘Taylor was our first common interest and gave us something to talk about. ‘During our relationship, we listened to her music, waited for store openings for album releases, and defended her reputation from all the haters.’
