November 9, 2020
If there’s one concert don’t want to miss in 2018, it’s this one! After Taylor Swift announced her Reputation stadium tour last year, fans have been patiently waiting for her to reveal who would be opening up for her. Well, we finally have our answer: it’s Camila Cabello! However, she’s not the only talented star who will join her on the road this spring. Taylor revealed that Charli XCX is also an opening act! How great is this? Both Camila and Charlie will perform every night of the tour!
“Hey guys! This is a reputation stadium tour update,” Taylor shared in an Instagram story. “I’ve been wanting to tell you this for a really long time but the opening acts for the reputation stadium tour are Charli XCX and Camila Cabello. So, I’m really excited. I hope you are too and I can’t wait to see you. Can’t wait to see them. Really excited just about the whole thing in general.”
She even shared the video on her Twitter account. Watch below!

Minutes after Taylor’s announcement, Charlie confirmed the news to her followers, too. “can i officially be the bad influence on the #ReputationStadiumTour ??? (just kidding….. or am i??),” she teased.
As for Camila, she reposted Taylor’s video alongside a lengthy caption about how excited she is and what a “dream come true” it will be to share the stage with her friend.
“On every level, this is a dream come true. As a fan, i’m going to be singing every song at the top of my lungs. As a friend, it’s a GIANT SLEEPOVER. As the girl who had a Taylor swift poster in her room when she was 14 and wanted SO BADLY to go to the speak now tour (distinctly remember my friends going to school the next day raving about it and me like), ITS A DREAM. As the girl who would sing Hey Stephen thinking of the boy in class who didn’t know my name LMAO, it’s. A. DREAM.” Camila wrote before adding: “Also, @charli_xcx WHO I ADORE, WHAT?!!!!!! this is going to be so much fun!!!! thank you @taylorswift for having me from the bottom of my heart, i love you so much !!!!!!!!”
After leaving Fifth Harmony in December 2016, critics weren’t sure how well Camila would do as a solo act. However, joining Taylor’s tour is just more proof that she’s on her way to super stardom.
Over the years, Camila and Taylor have maintained a very close friendship despite their super busy schedules. Not only is Camila a member of Taylor’s squad, but she considers her a mentor.
“If I’m going through a rough time with a boy or if there’s boy drama, [Taylor]’ll be like, ‘Here’s a playlist I made when I was going through that,’ or she’ll call me to talk about it,” Camila told V Magazine in a 2016 interview. “She’s always teaching me. She’s given me such great advice. And honestly, just seeing her live her life? You learn from it. She’s so graceful.”
So should we thank Taylor for Camila’s incredible new album? We’re sure she had an influence on it, however, we need to give Camila credit for grabbing 2018 by the horns! After all, she’ll be doing her own tour while opening for Tay’s. That’s seriously impressive stuff!
