Good afternoon. We interrupt your regularly scheduled Internet programming/time suckage to bring you this photo of the gargantuan spectacle that is Taylor Swift's “1989” world tour, slowly taking over what used to be Minute Maid Park. That looks like at least a dozen semis, so we hope the production crew is getting time and a half for this job.
Gates open at 5 p.m. tomorrow, and the show starts at 7 with openers Shawn Mendes and Vance Joy. Tickets are available through Ticketmaster, although at quite a premium; remember, all tickets from the original date of October 13 will be honored Wednesday. We just scouted Ticketmaster and the security captcha phrase was "patience, child." Draw your own conclusions.
Keep the Houston Press Free... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Houston with no paywalls.
