Taylor Swift Bringing 'reputation' Tour to Texas — Just Not San Antonio

If I didn't think Taylor Swift was more basic than taking a selfie with a Starbucks pumpkin spice latte, I probably would care a little more that she decided to not come to San Antonio for her next tour.

Yes, you read that correctly. Kanye West’s best friend (sarcasm obvs) just announced dates for her reputation tour with the only Texas stops being Houston (September 29, NRG Stadium) and Arlington (October 6, AT&T Stadium), forcing Swifties here in the Alamo City to travel hours to watch the 27-year-old performer lip-sync (I don’t think she actually lip-syncs, I’m just being shady).

And look, it’s not like I don’t like pop. That last Lady Gaga record slayed me on multiple levels and, as a queer 31-year-old, pretty much everything Madonna circa ‘89-’96 is nothing short of iconic. It’s just that, there’s so much better pop out there for us to consume (see: Beyonce, Janelle Monae, Kehlani), that we shouldn't settle for less.

If you're dead-set on seeing this pop star though, tickets will be available first through a fan-focused ticket hub via Ticketmaster’s Verified Fan initiative (which includes major cult-like stuff like being rewarded for showing support on social media). Users who register prior to the cut-off on Tuesday, November 28 will get access to tickets before they’re made available to the general public on Wednesday, December 13 (aka Swift's birthday, big surprise).
