Are you ready for it? The "Eras Tour" in Singapore is happening sooner than you think!

Fresh from her Sydney tour, Taylor Swift is set to perform at the National Stadium on March 2, 3, 4, 7, 8, and 9 as part of her "Eras Tour" with Sabrina Carpenter as her guest.

Fans of all ages from all over the world will be attending the only Southeast Asian leg of the tour, so expect lots of tourists in Singapore next week. To make your experience unforgettable, check out this ultimate guide and ensure a smooth and enjoyable event!

How to get to the National Stadium

You can get to the National Stadium in five ways: by MRT (train), bus, taxi, private car, or Grab free shuttle.

If you're riding the train via the Circle Line, get off the Stadium MRT Station (CC6) which exits directly into the Singapore Sports Hub or Mountbatten MRT Station (CC7) which is a 600m walk to the SSH. Those coming from the East West Line may get off at Kallang MRT Station (EW10) which is a 600m walk to the SSH.

Bus Service 11 takes you directly to the stadium, just get off along Stadium Crescent (Bus Stop No. 80199).

Three taxi stands are also found within the SSH if you're planning to take a cab from the venue. They are located at the Stadium Crescent next to the Singapore Indoor Stadium (128), Stadium Boulevard next to CBC Arena (129), and Stadium Place next to CBC Aquatic Centre and Kallang Wave Mall (130).

However, if you're going to use a ride-hailing service on the way back to your accommodation, you can get picked up at Pick-up Point A: Along Stadium Drive located on the North side of National Stadium, or Pick-up Point B: Situated along Stadium Crescent, beside taxi stand 128 located at East side of Singapore Indoor Stadium.

Those who will be availing of Grab's free shuttle service can find the booth at the Pick-up Point A by Gate 14. There will be two routes: Jurong East MRT and Toa Payoh MRT. According to AEG Presents, the service will only commence when the concert ends. Seating availability is limited and will be made on a first-come, first-served basis.


How to redeem VIP tickets and merch

Redeeming of VIP merchandise is from Feb. 28 to March 9 at the first level of OCBC Square from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m.

Don't forget to bring your ticket(s) upon redemption. AEG Presents reminds VIP ticket holders (VIP 1 to VIP 6) to redeem their VIP package before admission.

"If you fail to collect VIP Merchandise based on the location and times referenced above, it will result in a total forfeiture of the VIP merchandise," they wrote.

To enter the stadium, there are designated gates depending on the seat tier.

Where to buy merch

Did you save up to bring home some souvenirs from the tour? Luckily, the merch booths are open even on days when there are no shows!

On Feb 29, March 1, 5, and 6 from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m., you can visit Stadium Riverside Walk and OCBC Square to get your Taylor Swift merchandise.

On show days, March 2-4, and 7-9, you can head to the Stadium Riverside Walk and OCBC Square from 11 a.m. onwards, and South Dome Deck and Pitch Stand, National Stadium | Gate 3,9,15 and 21 from 4 p.m. to 9 p.m.

The items are available while stocks last and on a first-come-first-serve basis. However, no overnight queuing is allowed.

Take note that the booths only accept credit cards, cash will not be accepted.

What NOT to bring inside the stadium

We know you're excited to come in your favorite Eras outfit, but be mindful that your clothing should not "impede the view of those around or behind you."

Bags larger than a clutch bag are not allowed. The maximum size allowed is 35cm tall, 30cm wide, and 20cm deep. There should only be a maximum of two compartments. And, no, your bag doesn't have to be clear.

For those who are bringing friendship bracelets, it is noted that they "have to be worn on an arm or placed in bag."

Liquid containers and water bottles must be emptied before entering the venue (only plastic bottles are allowed, no glass or metal bottles).

While it's true you want to document the whole experience, the management is reminding patrons not to bring selfie sticks, tripods, monopods, and gimbals.

What else to know

Gates for the shows open at 4 p.m. Make sure you have everything you need because no re-entry is allowed.

If you need assistance with your tickets, the ticket resolution counter will be available at the 100PLUS Promenade opposite Gate 20 and opposite Gate 10, operating from 4 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. on the day of the event.
