If you're like me, you want to be prepared for a concert. I recommend being safely in your seat by 7:30. The stadium will be absolutely packed that night so it may take a few minutes to get into your seat, and you absolutely don't want to miss ANY of the show.
Production times are always subject to change, of course.
PRO-TIP: The last song that plays in the overhead speaker BEFORE Taylor enters the stage is rumored to be "Applause" by Lady Gaga. When you hear that song, the show is starting.
