Taylor Swift took over East Rutherford, New Jersey, this Memorial Day Weekend with an unforgettable takeover as she continued her record-breaking sold-out Eras Tour for three consecutive nights at the MetLife Stadium.

MetLife is home to two of the nation’s biggest football teams: the New York Jets and the New York Giants.

Following the release of her new full-length album “Midnight,” her devoted fans managed to secure their tickets despite a few minor technical hiccups.

This resulted in a mind-boggling achievement of selling out all 52 nights and over 2.4 million tickets in a matter of mere minutes.

Taylor’s three-night extravaganza at MetLife showcased an exceptional lineup of supporting acts, including Phoebe Bridgers, Gayle, Gracie Abrams, and Owenn.

However, that was just the tip of the iceberg, as Taylor surprised her fans by bringing out some incredible special guests on the first night.

The stage came alive when Jack Antonoff, a renowned producer, joined Taylor to deliver an outstanding performance.

As if that wasn’t enough, the crowd erupted with delight when Isis Naija Gaston, aka Ice Spice, took to the stage, adding an unexpected twist to an already unforgettable night.

The impressive number of attendees was made possible through the innovative utilization of on-field seating arrangements and an overwhelming ticket sell-out.
