  • Fans in Chicago were filled with excitement as they attended the first night of Taylor Swift's highly-anticipated concert at Soldier Field. Over 50,000 fans gathered for the first of three sold-out shows on the Taylor Swift-era's tour. CBS 2's Marissa Perlman reported live from the stadium, capturing the energy and enthusiasm of the Swifties. The night was a culmination of months of anticipation, with many fans waiting since November to see their idol perform. Even those who couldn't secure tickets joined in on the fun from outside the venue, singing along to the concert. Being a Swiftie comes with its own set of rules, and one of the golden ones is to fully immerse oneself in the experience, even if it means experiencing it from a distance. As the showtime approached, fans flocked to Soldier Field to catch a glimpse of the stage where Taylor Swift would soon mesmerize the crowd. The love for Swift was evident not just inside the stadium, but also on the city streets, which were adorned with glitter as a symbol of adoration for the artist. Tickets for the concert were sold at high prices, with some enthusiasts paying as much as $3,000 per ticket. On the secondary market, prices soared up to $800. The journey to obtain these prized tickets was arduous, with some fans spending hours on Ticketmaster's website or resorting to various methods to secure them. Unsung heroes in this quest were the mothers like Amy Veluz, who spent countless hours online to ensure their children could witness the magic of Taylor Swift live. The dedication of these super fans shines through as they go to great lengths to be part of Swift's concerts. The night marked the beginning of an era in Chicago, as Taylor Swift showcased her talent and connection with her fans, leaving an indelible mark on the city's music scene.
