Taylor Swift Will Be Making a 2018 Stop In St. Louis As Part Of Her Reputation Tour
Are you ready for it?
Taylor Swift will be making a St. Louis stop on her stadium tour next year to promote the release of her recent album, Reputation. The pop star will play The Dome at America’s Center, the former home of the St. Louis Rams, on September 18, 2018.
Tickets for next year’s show, part of the Reputation world tour, will go on sale December 13, 2017, giving plenty of time to make it into this year’s Christmas stockings.
Swift announced 27 stops on the Reputation tour on Monday, beginning with a May 8, 2018 show at University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale, Arizona and ending October 6 in Arlington, Texas at AT&T Stadium.
The St. Louis show will fall between stop in Indianpolis on September 15 and New Orleans on September 18. The announced dates seem to be spaced far enough apart to allow for multiple shows in each city to at least be a possibility.
No announcement was made about any tour stops outside the United States or any opening acts.
Taylor Swift Tweets Appreciation For KMOV Traffic Report
While Swift didn’t announce her St. Louis concert plans until Monday, she did mention the city on social media on Saturday afternoon.
The singer tweeted out a link to a Friday traffic report from KMOV’s Laura Hettiger, saying “my cousins in St. Louis sent this to me” and sending her love to Hettiger. Hettiger sprinkled Swift references throughout her Friday traffic report on KMOV.

Reputation Earning Stellar Reviews
Taylor Swift released her sixth studio album, Reputation, on Friday November 10, 2017. As of Sunday night, the album had sold 925,000 copies in the U.S. It has a chance to top the 1.29 million copies 1989 sold in its first week of release back in 2014.
As was plainly evident from the moment the album was announced, this latest album is quite different than any of Swift’s other albums.
The Reputation review from Pitchfork may have said it best:
“Reputation, her sixth album, isn’t a tuneless vengeance tour—it’s an aggressive, lascivious display of craftsmanship, one that makes 1989 sound like a pit stop on the way to Swift’s full embrace of modern pop.”
However, “the old Taylor’s not dead” according to NPR, despite the lyrics in “Look What You Made Me Do”.
