We are getting serious 1989 vibes as Taylor Swift‘s first special guest on her Reputation Stadium Tour was Shawn Mendes who opened for her during the 1989 World Tour. Swift shared some behind the scenes footage of their rehearsal, along with a picture and a video from the actual performance!

Mendes is the first special guest of the Reputation Stadium Tour and coincidentally the song they performed “There’s Nothing Holdin’ Me Back” also has the word reputation in it!
You take me places that tear up my reputation
Manipulate my decisions
Baby, there’s nothing holdin’ me back
This was the third stop on Swift’s “Baby Tour” as she called it and she recalled that it was her 40th show in Southern California. Her first show was to a crowd of about 43 and now she is playing to a crowd of about 60,000! It was Swift’s first time playing the Rose Bowl and also her first time ever being at the Rose Bowl, she told the crowd she definitely understood the allure!

Wouldn’t it be great if every special guest has a song with the word “reputation” in it? Do you think there will be a theme? As far as Swift not having a special guest at the other two shows, we think the show is so big and so great it doesn’t need special guests, and there definitely shouldn’t be one there night 1! Everyone should just experience the magic of the show on it’s own! Also, LA is a big city so there isn’t always going to be a guest in every city, but that’s okay because Swift puts on an amazing show compelete with fireworks!
