The Club Red / T-Party FAQ

Thu, Mar 15, 2012 at 3:54 PM Popular Sticky

On the old TC we used to have a thread all about the T-Party and how it works. I appreciate that a lot of fans now know about it but there are still a lot of questions that are asked regarding it and I thought it would be good to set up a replacement thread.

EDIT 14/03/2013 - To reflect the recent name change to the T-Party, this thread has now been renamed the Club Red / T-Party FAQ

What is the T-Party?

The T-party is basically an after concert gathering that Taylor has after her shows. Not every show has a T-party but on the Fearless tour and the Speak Now tour they occured regularly. Fans who have been to see the concert are picked to go backstage and meet Taylor as well as look around the T-Party room and meet her band.

Club Red was the new name for the T-Party on the Red Tour however the concept stayed the same as above and the gatherings have continued to happen regularly.

How do I get invited to the T-Party?

Taylor's staff look out for fans to invite during the concert, you may be invited because you have an incredible sign, wild dance moves, a great outfit or you may just look like the sort of person who wants to meet Taylor! Her staff look out for a wide variety of people to invite and no one can say for sure who will be invited other than her staff.

A staff member goes over to potential T-Party Swifties and asks if they have ever met Taylor before. If they say no, they are then invited and given a wristband to wear to allow access. They are also told which section of the arena to meet at once the show has ended.

For Club Red the requirement to be a fan that hasn't met Taylor before has been removed, possibly because Taylor has met a lot of her fans in the years since she first released Tim McGraw. Fans who are invited are given a wristband and one person in the group is given a slip of paper with instructions on where to meet after the show.

Any tips for getting an invite?

Although a lot of people feel that bringing a sign or making an awesome costume will help you to stand out, that isn't guaranteed to get you an invite to the T-Party. Taylor's management want to see people having a good time and if you're concentrating too much on being seen by the right people, it can spoil the enjoyment of the show.
The best thing to do is enjoy yourself at the show and forget as much as you can about the T-Party. If you look natural and have lots of fun you may just feel that magic tap on your shoulder!

Do I have to be sat at the back of the arena to be picked to T-Party?

No, there have been stories of people all over the arena getting invited, even in the pit! It's possible to get an invite wherever you're sat, however you might find it harder to get noticed if you have seats near to the front of the stage. When it comes to Taylor though, anything is possible.

I'm going to be placed in a part of the venue that Taylor's mom will find it difficult to get to, will that ruin my chances of getting an invite?

No. If Taylor's management want to invite you to the T-Party, they will find a way to get to you. Taylor's staff are very tough folk and if they need to, they will walk along a row of people to speak to you. If for some reason this isn't possible, they will try to catch your attention so that you come over to them. Whatever happens, if they want to offer you something, they will not let your location stop them.

I have pit passes, can I be invited to Club Red?

It is a very rare occurence for fans to be picked from the pit to go to Club Red however pit passes should not be considered "bad tickets" because of this. You'll have a great view of the show from where you're located and be able to experience the show in a way that not many people get the chance to.

I've met Taylor before, does that mean I won't be invited?

Some of the people who have been invited on this tour have met Taylor before and have still recieved an invite. It seems that her staff don't always ask this question any more and don't have a problem with fans meeting Taylor again.

What can I do in the T-Party room while I'm waiting to meet Taylor?

No party is complete without food! There are snacks laid out so it's the perfect opportunity to sample some Fearless Pizza :) Members of her band and her mom have been known to show up to chat and there's plenty of time to take pictures of the amazing T-Party room :) There's also a TV and personal pictures belonging to Taylor to look at. New for the Red Tour is the photobooth, where you and your friends can go and take pictures. Taylor has occasionally been known to visit the photobooth with fans too!

I heard that someone got to visit the T-Party room BEFORE the show. How did that happen?

Sometimes pre show Meet and Greets are also held in the T-Party room, however this is a different set up to the T-Party itself as fans are usually competition winners.

Was there a T-Party during the Red tour?

The T-Party was known as "Club Red" during the Red tour. As well as Taylor showing up to Club Red, Ed Sheeran was now a regular visitor during the US leg of the tour.

Will there be a T-Party during the 1989 tour? What will it be called?

We won't know for sure until the tour begins.

I've got VIP tickets, does that mean I can go to the T-Party?

None of the VIP packages include the opportunity to meet Taylor. The pre-show party included with some tickets is a separate event from the gatherings organised by Taylor's management. Check the ticketing website that you purchased your ticket from for full details of what's included in your VIP package.

Will there be a T-Party at my concert?

There isn't a T-Party every night and while there are a number of factors that can allow us to guess when there may or may not be a T-Party (such as travel arrangements to the next city, moving the set and Taylor's health), the T-Party is a gift to fans, not a right. There are no particular nights on the tour that Taylor MUST hold a T-Party and the only way to know if there is one is to look during the show for people being invited or to look out for stories of people being invited after the show.

I hope that helps, if anyone has anything to add or any questions please post :)

    I've never heard of her taking a selfie with anyone while she's on the stage, she rarely brings people up nowadays for security reasons. The last time I remember it happening was when she brought up a child with cancer during the Red tour and I don't remember when it last happened before then. Your sign sounds like a lot of fun though, definitely do that if you'll have fun making it :)

    Have a wonderful birthday.

    So I saw a Meet and Greet set of tickets being sold for 1989 for like $10,000 each for my area. I thought Taylor didn't do meet and greet ticket sales? Anybody know anything about it? I'm in SLC. Tempted to start a fund to buy them hahaha

    You're right, Taylor doesn't sell tickets to Meet and Greets. The only exceptions to this rule have been when she's donated a couple of passes to charity so that they could be auctioned.

    Do you have a link to where you found it? The Moderators would be able to confirm for you whether or not this is real (although it's highly unlikely) and could try and take action to get it removed so that nobody is scammed.

    I see a lot of people make signs that say T-PARTY? Or something like that. Does that help or hurt your chances of getting picked?

    It's rumoured that having a sign asking for an invite does hurt your chances of getting in. This rumour started around about the time that the T-Party started to become common knowledge and it was thought that having a sign referring to it may spoil the surprise of being picked.
    I don't know how true this rumour is as I'm not part of the decision making process of who gets invited and who doesn't. It is however connected to another rumour that I believe is important to remember - don't ask Taylor's management about the T-Party / Club Red. They will approach you if they'd like to invite you, it's alright to go and say hello or to introduce yourself but asking them if you can meet Taylor after the show is rumoured to be considered rude.
    Everyone has their own take on these "rules", personally I don't believe the rumour regarding signs would be enough to stop you from being invited but I do believe that Taylor's management have the right to be left alone to make their decisions and not approached by pushy fans. Others may feel differently.

    I've heard a bunch of stories where some people are like sitting in the fifth row of an area. And then like a person two rows to the left of you get invited to the party.

    I think that's coincidence, if they're looking in a particular area (in the lower tiers at least) the fifth row would be in their vision line and while looking at that segment of the room they might spot someone else nearby. I'm pretty certain that there's no rule or concious method based around that observation though.

    Im also gonna go ahead and guess having a lighted sign will make it easier to be seem in the dark when scouts are looking for fans to bring backstage! Im sitting in the last row of my section and will def be bringing a lighted sign!

    Absolutely, it's very difficult to read most of the signs that people bring along, even when they are lighted, because there are people who don't understand the visibility of what they're creating. There's nothing wrong with bringing in a colourful poster if that's something that you'd enjoy showing to other fans around the venue and near the area where you're sitting but if you want it to be seen from a distance in the dark it needs to incorporate some sort of light into the design to have a chance.
    I could continue with tips on how to make a sign and the best way to use lights (there are a few mistakes that people commonly make) but I think it would be easier to link to this thread where you can read the discussion so far and ask questions if you need any help.
    Having said that, I would like to reiterate to anyone who is reading this panicking that they're not bring a sign that it is not the most important thing for getting into the T-Party / Club Red. Enthusiasm and excitement is a lot more important than what people wear or bring with them.

    I would probably agree that enthusiasm plays a BIG role in being noticed. I have never made a lighted sign, but I am pretty handy so I think I may be able to pull it off! Any suggestions would be appreciated! Countdown is on!
