What you need to know before the Taylor Swift concert in St. Louis

ST. LOUIS, Mo. — Ten-time Grammy Award winner Taylor Swift returns to St. Louis Tuesday with one of the most highly anticipated concerts of the year. Her Reputation Stadium Tour will be at the Dome at America's Center.

They may not be playing football at the Dome anymore, but Taylor Swift is certainly packing the building with fans.

Dozens of trucks have been hauling equipment and steel for the stage since the concert set-up began on Thursday.

The doors will open at 5 p.m. and opening acts Camila Cabello and Charli XCX are scheduled to start at 7 p.m. Tickets are still available through Ticketmaster or by calling 1-800-745-3000.

There are a few things fans should know before showing up. One of the security protocols calls for clear bags only. So guests can use only clear plastic bags (12” x 6” x 12” – or smaller), standard one-gallon disposable freezer bags, or small clutch purses.

Concert organizers say that you should have your ticket when you get to the show. Your mobile ticket must be displayed on your phone to get into the event. Tickets will not be emailed or available to print.

There will be a lot of people looking for parking places in downtown St. Louis this evening. Heavy traffic is expected before and after the show.
