Explore the rich history of Singapore at Fort Canning Park, once home to royal palaces and military headquarters, now a treasure trove of artefacts, monuments, and lush gardens.

As Taylor Swift takes us on a journey through her diverse set list spanning 10 eras, fans, known affectionately as Swifties, have devised special chants to enhance the concert experience. Here are some fan favourites that will keep you engaged and on your toes:

Don’t Blame Me: Keep an eye out for this chant during the breakdown in 'Don’t Blame Me', just before Taylor is bathed in lights, creating an almost heavenly glow. Fans chant, "Take us to church, Taylor!"

All Too Well (10 Minute Version): In the 10-minute live version of 'All Too Well,' fans ask, "How’d that make you feel?" just before Taylor's poignant response, "That made me want to die."

Bad Blood: Despite Taylor performing the original version, fans add their own twist by ad-libbing Kendrick Lamar’s lines from the remixed music video. The chant goes, "You forgive, you forget, but you never let it go."

Style: Before Taylor starts her introduction to 'Style,' fans shout, "What time is it?" adding a hilariously cute prompt to the concert.

Anti-Hero: Inspired by the Bleachers’ version of 'Anti-Hero,' fans chant, "Taylor, you’ll be fine," during the second verse, echoing the sentiments of support.

Now, let's ensure you arrive at the National Stadium hassle-free!

Feel 'Fearless' Getting There: Singapore offers convenient public transport options. Take the MRT to Stadium MRT Station (CC6), a preferred choice for concert-goers. Alternatively, you can walk from Mountbatten MRT Station (CC7) or Kallang MRT Station (EW10), which are within 600m of the Singapore Sports Hub. Buses 11, 10, 14, 16, 16M, 70, and 196 also provide direct access to the National Stadium. For added convenience, consider booking a Grab ride to either the North Side of National Stadium or the East Side of Singapore Indoor Stadium.

Now, let's ensure you have a smooth concert experience with these do’s and don'ts:

✓ Opt for a comfy yet stylish fit.

✓ Outside food and beverages are not allowed, but food kiosks are available inside the stadium.

✓ Travel light and avoid packing prohibited items like cameras and vapes.

✓ Stay hydrated by bringing an empty water bottle to fill up at the stadium's water cooler station.

✓ Carry a disposable raincoat for unexpected rainfall during Singapore's wet season.

✓ Ensure your phone is fully charged for the duration of the event.

✓ Arrive early to beat the traffic and long queues, so you don't miss any part of the show!
