Taylor Swift Foxboro Concert – NBC Boston

Foxboro is getting ready for Night 2 of the Taylor Swift Eras Tour, which also includes traffic delays and the potential for rain.

Taylor Swift’s Eras Tour kicks off Friday night at Gillette Stadium in Foxboro. Thousands of fans – dressed in themed costumes and even banana costumes – poured into the stadium during rush hour on Friday.

Ann-Marie English said on Friday, “For concerts, it’s a completely different group of people. A lot of them have never been here before, they don’t know where they’re going.” “It’s gridlock.”

Foxboro police warned that the intersection of Route 1 and North Street will be closed at some point Friday due to anticipated traffic congestion, with drivers only able to make right turns.

Residents of the city are planning to stay down for the next few days, but they say they are used to it now.

From themed outfits to Taylor Swift cupcakes, businesses hoping to capitalize on the crowds have also been circling the date on their calendars for months, ever since the concert was first announced.

“When there are 100,000 people in town, it certainly drives up business,” said Craig Carrera, Union Straw’s general manager.

Fans should also keep in mind the possibility of rain. While it has a light start, it is likely to become heavy at times during this afternoon/evening and then into the night.

Rainfall amounts could increase from an inch to 3 inches across parts of south and central MA with winds up to 25 mph.

The official account of Gillette Stadium wrote that they are monitoring the rain situation.

“All concerts are rain or shine, but if public safety officials determine a storm in the immediate area poses a safety threat, we will share instructions on shelter options until concerts can resume.” Happens.” he wrote in a tweet.

“Umbrellas are not allowed inside Gillette Stadium, so be sure to bring your ponchos! 🌧” he added.
