During Taylor Swift's The Red Tour, I spent the entire concert screaming, crying, and bobbing mega-size Meredith cat heads in the crowd -- hoping to get picked by Tay's team to go to the super exclusive, epic meet-and-greet soiree they called Club Red.
Unfortunately, out of the 60,000+ audience members in attendance, I did not get chosen. But this year, I have another chance! Tay is bringing the backstage fan wonderland to venues on the 1989 World Tour, but this time it's called Loft '89.
The name Loft '89 gives off super-chic, hip New York City vibes, which is no surprise since Taylor loves NYC and serves as its official tourism ambassador.
If chosen for the Loft '89 afterparty, fans get to hang out with other hard-core Swifties and meet Taylor herself, IRL, personally, AND take photos with her. I am hyperventilating just thinking about it.
Taylor and her team like to keep things on the DL (to keep the experience personal and more magical) but here's what we know about Loft '89 so far...

Loft '89 Won't Happen Every Night Of The Tour
If Taylor is playing two nights in one city, she will only throw the after party on night one, as she has done on past tours for The T-Party and Club Red. The tour travels to the next city almost immediately after the second night. So keep these tips in mind and GOOD LUCK!
