Scott Zolak is an expert on everything Gillette Stadium. He’s seen over 200 Patriots games in person at the 21 year old facility. He’s been to countless training camp practices over the years. He works inside the stadium for Kraft Sports Entertainment. Hell, he even helped sell seats for the place before it was even built after retiring from the NFL.

Zo knows every nook and cranny of the stadium that will be home to one of the biggest mega stars in the world.

Here are his Do’s and Don’ts for Taylor Swift at Gillette Stadium.

  • DO: Arrive Early!

    It is going to be a DISASTER getting to Gillette Stadium this weekend. Lots open at 2:30 on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. The east part of Route 1 is already sold out, so start thinking ahead. You don’t want to be arriving after she has already hit the stage!

  • DON’T: Ignore your outfit

    This is a special event. Everybody is going to be dressed to the nines, so you don’t want to stick out like a sore thumb. I’ve had my outfit picked out for weeks already. If you’re not bedazzling the outfit, you’re not trying hard enough.

  • DO: Bring ear plugs!

    As someone who has been to a number of these concerts with my daughters, ear plugs go a long way for parents! You’ll hear some of the craziest and loudest screams you’ve heard at a Taylor Swift show. Absolutely love the music, but with how long this show is supposed to be, your ears might need a break at some point.

  • DON’T: Buy souvenirs inside Gillette Stadium

    The lines inside Gillette Stadium are ridiculous for souvenirs. Save yourself the trouble and get them outside. Nobody wants to wait an hour for a t-shirt.

  • DO: Stay hydrated!

    You’d be surprised how many people will pass out at concerts due to a lack of hydration. Make sure you’re downing waters from the start. It’s a long show and you don’t want to end up missing a moment of it.

  • Taylor Swift

    Taylor Swift gave a whopping $4M donation to the new education center at the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum in Nashville back in 2012.She has also donated thousands to the music departments of various colleges around the country.

  • DON’T: Forget about Tailgating

    Just because it’s a concert, doesn’t mean you shouldn’t tailgate it like a Patriots game. Bring a bunch of friends and let loose before you get into Gillette Stadium. Prepare for the hits before you hear them a few hours later.

  • DO: Know the set list!

    If you hop on Tik Tok right now, you can get the entire set list for the tour so far. That way you know when to expect your favorite songs to pop-up. Nothing worse than missing your favorite tunes during a bathroom break.

    These concerts are fun. Sit back and enjoy the show. By following this list of Do’s and Don’ts, there’s no reason for you to be stressed out beforehand. It’s going to be a night for the books.
