Taylor Swift Eras Tour has made its way to the Bay Area with the pop superstar holding two back-to-back sold-out concerts at Santa Clara’s Levi’s Stadium. The first show took place on Friday, and the second is scheduled for Saturday.
The venue was filled to the brim with eager fans who had tickets, while others without tickets engaged in trading bracelets and enjoying their favorite songs outside the stadium. For more details about the concerts, you can refer to the concert guide.
The event logistics are as follows: the parking lot opens at 2 p.m., gates open at 4:30 p.m., and the concert starts at 6:30 p.m. Swift typically takes the stage around 8 p.m., delivering an impressive 45-song setlist lasting over three hours, as seen in her previous performances during the extensive 100-date tour. Both Santa Clara shows feature opening acts Gracie Abrams and HAIM.
Considering the expected traffic, delays, and road closures, concert-goers are strongly encouraged to utilize public transit. The Capitol Corridor is offering promotions and an adjusted schedule for Northern California attendees, while Caltrain has arranged an extra post-event train on both nights. The Santa Clara Valley Transportation Authority is also providing 30% more light-rail train cars, anticipating a record number of passengers.
To help fans make their connections, passengers can connect to BART via VTA at the Milpitas Transit Center, with coordination between BART and VTA staff.
Ticket demand has been incredibly high, leading to immediate sellouts on Ticketmaster, and resale prices on secondary platforms like StubHub exceeding $1,000. Fans have been warned by California Attorney General Rob Bonta about ticket scams, which have been an issue throughout the tour.

Levi’s Stadium enforces a strict bag policy, allowing only clear bags not larger than 12″ x 6″ x 12″, or small clutch bags no bigger than 4.5″ x 6.5″. However, fans can still expect to see glitter, colors, and Swift-themed outfits at the event. Trading friendship bracelets has also become a popular activity among attendees, with even San Jose Mineta International Airport staff exchanging handmade SJC-branded bracelets with travelers.
Tailgating is not permitted outside the stadium, and those without tickets will not be allowed to gather in the parking lots or nearby streets.
