EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (WABC) — Are you ready for it? Taylor Swift fans know everything is too good that her highly anticipated Eras Tour is coming to the tri-state area this weekend with the first concert tonight.

Before the concerts, all fans will have the opportunity buy official tourist products on Thursday at the MetLife Stadium flagship store.

The shows will take place on May 26, 27 and 28 at MetLife Stadium, but they are urging fans to avoid any bad blood: tickets are required to enter the parking lot.

The announcement comes two weeks after about 20,000 fans without tickets gathered in the parking lot of Lincoln Financial Stadium in Philadelphia to sing along to her songs.

“For the safety and enjoyment of all ticket holders for these shows, we strongly encourage non-ticket holders not to enter MetLife Stadium on show days,” the statement said.

Concert tickets are required to access the parking lots, which will be packed on concert nights, officials have warned.

The New Jersey State Police also discouraged “Taylor gating” for those without tickets.

Shows start at 6:30pm each night, but car parks open at 12:30pm and gates open at 4:30pm.

Governor Phil Murphy warned Swifties to leave early for the show.

“We literally have three Super Bowls this weekend. I would like to tell people: come early, enjoy yourself, but do it responsibly,” he said.

Please note, fans without a ticket to the event will be turned away and tickets will not be sold at the stadium.

According to StubHub, the cheapest ticket for Friday’s Taylor Swift concert is $1,454 and the most expensive is $9,084. However, if you want to go with a friend and sit next to them, make sure to breathe because section 6, row 11 has tickets for $143,753 each.

There is a clear bag policy. Banners and signs smaller than 11 x 17 inches are permitted.

To the lucky ones who snagged tickets to the show, make sure shake it off and we hope it matches yours wildest dreams.

And for those who can’t make it to either show, you can still join in the festivities by enjoying the new official state sandwich: Taylor Swift’s ham, egg and cheese. Governor Phil Murphy declared the breakfast sandwich the official sandwich of the state in honor of the tour.
