ALLLLLL I was thinking was Jesus Christ I have done an entire year working at Wembley and I have NEVER been to an event in the Wembley Stadium! Yeah, I’ve done a Stadium Tour but that is CERTAINLY not the same as seeing someone live or a football game.
I went to a boxing event in the SSE Arena before, which you can read about here, but never the stadium. I was actually having this conversation with Brad as well.
Well, as it happened. The following day I get a phone call from Brad from work;
“Fancy going to see Taylor Swift at Wembley Stadium?”
OBVIOUSLY I wasn’t going to say no. Brad had managed to get some tickets from his workplace!!
It’s a little different to our usual Techno gigs at Fabric, but shit why the hell not! Tay Tay has some bangers anyway, Look What You Made Me Do is my JAM.
So June 23rd of we went to see T-Swizzle at her Reputation Tour!
It was a group of us from Brads workplace and even some of Brads family! We were pretty high up on the stands, and if you’re afraid of heights or get vertigo its probably best you don’t ever book these seats.
Regardless of where the seats were it was still a great view. You could just feel the atmosphere around you it AMAZING. People singing, screaming, chilling out, drinking, parents just sat wondering why they had to come, it was a great atmosphere throughout the whole show.
The stadium Itself was nearly full but not quite and upon arrival you’re given a ‘Present from Taylor’. Its a small wristband! BEST Idea’s ever as far as we were concerned. The wristbands lit up as the music played, flashing different colours too the beat around the entire stadium. All these different light up patterns spread around the stadium as she sang and it was amazing to watch!
The bracelets themselves didn’t stop flashing until two days after the gig. I thought they may have died the further away we got from the stadium but to our surprise they lasted!
The stage itself was huge with two protruding T’s into the audience, of course. BUT HAVING ONE STAGE WAS TOO BASIC. No, she had 3 and a LOT of blow up snakes to go with it. SLAY.
Her support acts were Camila Cabello and Charlie XCX, although we missed Charlie XCX which isn’t the end of the world, Camila Cabello was Phenomenal. The girl is just effortless in all that she does.
The show itself was amazing, Im going to post the set list below for you guys as well!
But personally, the BEST part about the entire show was without a shadow of a doubt, who she brought out mid set.
She said that she wanted the whole stadium to sing, a song that was well known and would get everyone going. Boy she wasn’t lying, she sat at that piano and BAM, Angels, ROBBIE WILLIAMS APPEARED.
This was like a childhood dream and the fact I got to see Robbie Williams perform Angels live was just the icing on the cake. It couldn’t possibly have gotten any better than that.
ALL in all, it was an amazing night. I have Bradders to thank for the tickets, and Taylor Swift to thank for the experience. I wish I could do it all over again!
Until the next gig Wembley!
