    First of all do not drink a lot of water before you go or else bathroom issues will come up
    do bring water though just in case you get thirsty, maybe a bag if you a bringing light sticks, etc., if you want to bring a camera and a poster if you made one
    Second
    try your best to buy merchandise (if you plan on to) before the show or else all the good stuff will be gone and the lines will be miles long, i have not been to a show yet but i have heard the crazy stories
    Third
    be yourself: dance along to the songs and have a fun time! You might get lucky and get into club red (which i hope you do )
    Fourth
    HAVE AN AWESOME TIME AND I HOPE YOU HAVE THE TIME OF YOUR LIFE!!!

    I'm going to Vancouver too! BC Place posted a "Taylor Swift FAQ" on their twitter (@bcplace). There you will find everything you need to know :)

    P.s Tay13rASwift was right about the water. Drink enough to be hydrated, but not so much that you'll constantly have to leave to use the bathroom.

    i don't know what like the weather is like in vancouver these days, but if it's anything like the east coast these days, i'd say *do* make sure to drink water earlier in the day, especially if you're going to be standing outside on line for a long time. but *do not* drink anything caffeinated, maybe all day if you can help it. (and if you have to go, go. you don't want to be distracted, you know . .) eat enough before the concert, too. going to a concert takes a lot of energy.

    don't know how you're getting there, but show up early if you can. everything will take longer than you think. bring as little as you can into the venue. obviously bring anything you're going to use during the concert (camera, poster, etc.) but don't bring other things since it's easy to lose things. some people really like buying merchandise, but that's another thing you'll have to carry and worry about. don't feel like you have to buy stuff, though. it's stressful at a big venue.

    like Tay13rASwift said, be yourself and have fun. if you want to dance, dance. if you want to stand perfectly still, do that. don't stress out about the people around you if their not into the concert or talking too much or bumping into you (sometimes it's crowded and it's not their fault). you might also be surprised by how far away from the stage you are, but don't let it get you down. when the music starts, it'll still be awesome.

    have fun! i'm excited for you, and i don't even know you!

    It can be louder than you might imagine. Not that Taylor's shows are nearly as bad as some (like the guys who opened for Tim McGraw, where their bass guitar was cranked so loud you really just felt it in your chest) it's still very loud.

    Just remember to take it all in and take nothing for granted! Enjoy the show and especially your seats because you are experiencing the presence of Taylor swift herself. Don't let anything get you down, arrive early, take lots of pictures to relive the moment and especially video-I actually was so upset I didn't take any.
