Taylor Swift is coming to Eastern Iowa...sort of.

2023 has been the year of Taylor Swift. With the singer embarking on her record-breaking Eras Tour, re-recording & releasing two of her old albums, and even publicly dating Kansas City Chief's player Travis Kelce; it's been a busy year for the Grammy winner.

In 2024, she will be continuing her tour and taking it to places like Miami, Paris, and Toronto. For fans looking to enjoy her music in a live setting, but can't make it to these shows, you won't have to look much farther than Cedar Rapids for your Swift fix.

Get ready to hear Taylor Swift in a whole new way! The popular Candlelight event by Fever is returning to Eastern Iowa. These shows feature a string quartet performing beloved music amongst beautiful candlelight.

This show will feature Listeso String Quartet putting their own twist on various songs from music superstar Taylor Swift.

"Candlelight concerts bring the magic of a live, multi-sensory musical experience to awe-inspiring locations like never seen before in Cedar Rapids."

The show is slated for January 13th, 2024 at the Midnight Gem in Swisher. Doors for the show will open at 8:00 PM and the performance will begin at 8:45 PM, according to the official event website.

What Songs Will They Perform?

While I don't want to spoil the show too much for you, but whoever arranged this show setlist knows their audience! On the event site, the tentative program weaves through songs from seven of Swift's albums.

As a huge Swiftie myself, I'm excited to hear songs like “Wildest Dreams,” "Enchanted," and "Snow on the Beach" performed live like this.

Where Can I Get Tickets?

Tickets are currently available for purchase online. If you are interested in checking out this unique show, make sure to go to the official event page here. The ticket prices for the performance start at $40 and go up to $65.
