Taylor Swift City Hall Takeover

April 21, 2023 -- The City of Houston is thrilled to join the excitement of the Taylor Swift ‘Eras’ Tour. City Hall will illuminate Lavender Haze beginning at dusk in honor of the artist and her mother, Andrea Swift, a University of Houston alumna.

So there is no Bad Blood, and to showcase our Love Story, the City will light the municipal building at 901 Bagby for not one but all three evenings while the singer plays her sold-out concerts.

Are you stressed about the hassles of parking? Shake It Off!

We encourage all Swifties attending the concerts to ride Metro, Taylor’s version - of the RED line! Visit for more helpful info and to plan your trip.

Welcome to Houston, Taylor!
