A New Jersey stadium has issued a warning to those who wish to attend Taylor Swift’s The Eras Tour on Memorial Day weekend — don’t come without tickets.
MetLife Stadium reminded concertgoers in social media blasts Wednesday night that event tickets are required to access the parking lots of the venue.
The message comes two weeks after about 20,000 fans who did not have tickets flocked to a stadium in Philadelphia and gathered in the parking lot to sing along to her songs.
The crowd of Swifties were seen in a viral TikTok video, signing in a parking lot at the Lincoln Financial Field stadium on May 13.
Following the incident, Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, Massachusetts, issued a warning to fans ahead of its Eras Tour shows last weekend, stating that a ticket was needed in order to enter the stadium’s parking lots.
What exactly would happen to anyone who attempts to go without tickets to the New Jersey this weekend was not exactly clear. MetLife did not specify in its messaging, which also included a list of other rules and reminders for attending the shows. The New Jersey State Police, the agency that patrols MetLife Stadium, did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
Swift’s The Eras Tour runs from March 17 to August 9, with tour dates at the East Rutherford stadium on Friday, May 26; Saturday, May 27; and Sunday, May 28.
Tickets for the three-plus hour show currently range from $1,476 to $4,155, according to VividSeats.com.
The Eras Tour is Swift’s biggest and most expensive tour yet. The concerts are three hours and 15 minutes long, not including the opening acts, and feature a setlist of 45 songs. The songs date back to her second album, “Fearless,” released in 2008.
The average ticket for the tour is $700, while the average ticket for her previous tour, the Reputation Stadium Tour in 2018, went for just $279, according to StubHub.
