Taylor Swift usually plays sold out arenas in front of THOUSANDS of fans but on Thursday night in Chicago, she played for just 200 fans in a super secret acoustic show.
Here’s what we’ve been able to piece together: the show was recorded for “Taylor Swift NOW,” part of her big deal with AT&T and DirecTV. They released a small teaser on Friday and plan to put the full show up at some point soon.

Swift played five songs: “Delicate,” “Gorgeous,” “All Toó Well,” “New Year’s Day,” and “Shake It Off.”
According to one insanely detailed account of the show by a super fan, after playing a few songs, she told the fans she was trying to rest her voice. So instead of playing more, she posed for photos with all the fans in groups of four.
As for how the security and secrecy around the event, the fan described it all:
They confiscated all of our stuff. And then they bussed 200 of us off to the top secret location. They brought us in an alley way and then brought camera men on the bus. They filmed us getting off the bus and walking into the event. There was Reputation stuff EVERYWHERE.. cool light up signs (that I wish I could’ve had my phone to document!), Reputation arcade games, a light up dance floor, an open bar with Reputation themed bar.
Keep an eye out for the full show coming soon.
