Saturday's Taylor Swift concert biggest production ever in Ohio Stadium

COLUMBUS (WCMH) – Taylor Swift’s “Reputation” your is stopping in Columbus on Saturday, for what is already being dubbed a record-breaking show.

The production for Saturday’s Taylor Swift concert at Ohio Stadium includes 52 semi-trucks of staging and equipment, plus 30 trucks to transport the necessary steel for the show. Four cranes are being used to construct the towers and staging.

There are so many trucks, that some are being parked inside the Schottenstein Center due to limited space.

According to Columbus Arena Sports and Entertainment (CASE), Saturday’s concert is a bigger production than the Rolling Stones 2015 concert at Ohio Stadium and the Cirque Du Soleil Michael Jackson event that took place at the Schottenstein Center.

CASE manages The Schottenstein Center, Nationwide Arena and presents concerts/special events at Ohio Stadium. The group says Saturday’s concert is the biggest production it has ever had.​

​​​​​​Fans, or ‘Swifties’ as they call themselves are already prepared for the show.

“It’s different every time,” said Holly Krause. “Every time she puts on a great show. We’ve never had the same experience twice and the energy that she puts on in a show is unforgettable.”
