Taylor Swift Clear Bag Policy for Australian 2018 Reputation Tour

Taylor Swift Clear Bag Policy for Australian 2018 Reputation Tour

Taylor Swift introduces clear bag policy for her 2018 Reputation tour in Australia.

Taylor Swift will introduce strict security measures for her 2018 Reputation Stadium Tour in Australia.

The American singer, who is expected to perform to more than 200,000 people while Down Under, has banned a number of items from all her concert venues.

The 10-time Grammy winner appears to have followed in the footsteps of Ariana Grande, who enforced a total ban on ‘bags of all sizes’ following the Manchester attack during her own Australian tour.

These new measures have been put in place for public safety.



It is understood that Taylor’s Australian concerts will adopt the same security measures she enforced while touring North America, Ireland and the UK.

  • Professional cameras
  • Battery packs
  • Signs larger than 11″ x 17″
  • Lights of any kind
  • Non-transparent bags larger than 4.5″ x 6.5″

Daily Mail Australia understands these measures are similar to those enforced at NFL games in the US.

Professional cameras, battery packs and signs larger than 11″ x 17″ are likely to be banned, and a ‘clear bag policy’ is also expected to be in action.

Fans at Taylor’s previous concerts were only allowed to carry one bag made of clear plastic, vinyl or PVC, or a one-gallon clear plastic freezer bag (Ziploc bag or similar).

While a small clutch or wallet (4.5″ x 6.5″) was permitted, these were subject to searches with the possibility of fans being denied entry.

Ariana Grande enforced a total bag ban during her Australian tour, following the deadly bombing at her Manchester, UK concert in May 2017.

Twenty-two fans were killed left dozens more left injured in the terrorist attack.

Security measures for Ariana’s Dangerous Woman tour were enforced by promoter Live Nation, which is also bringing Taylor’s tour to Australia.


Let’s have a look at the regulations for each stadium of her Australian tour:
