Taylor Swift Invites Fans to Special Rehearsal to Benefit Tornado Victims.
Taylor Swift has announced she will be opening the doors for the first time ever to the last dress rehearsal of her Speak Now Tour as a fundraiser to benefit victims of last week’s tornadoes. This event will allow 13,000 fans to get a sneak peak a whole week earlier than the first tour date of Taylor’s North American leg of the Speak Now tour which kicks off in Omaha, Nebraska May 27th.
“I was watching the coverage of the tornadoes backstage at rehearsals, and I wanted to do something for the families affected by the damage. I’ve never opened a rehearsal to the public before, but I felt that inviting my fans to the last rehearsal for the Speak Now Tour would be a great way to raise money. We’ll probably still be doing some fine-tuning to the show that night, since this will be a true rehearsal, but I feel like it is so important for me and my fans to help if we can.” -Taylor Swift
Taylor is calling this special concert “Speak Now…Help Now!” and it will take place May 21st at Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena.
Ticket information and event details will be available and update by Monday, May 9th, you can check it out by clicking here. All of the money raised from tickets sales will go to the victims dealing with the aftermath of the storms.
Bravo to Taylor, and all the other members of the country music community (Reba, Blake, Hank Williams Jr and others) who have taken that extra step to help those in their time of need. Well, done.
