Security zone in place ahead of Swift concert

Closed area around Letzigund (c) Kapo ZH

Police in Zurich have sealed off a large area around the Letzigrund Stadium ahead of two concerts by Taylor Swift.

The American superstar is playing tomorrow and Wednesday.

The 95,000 tickets sold out in an hour and all hotel rooms have been booked for weeks.

Police want to make sure only ticket holders get close to the stadium – thousands of ticketless Swifties are expected in the city, if only to catch a glimpse of their idol.

Roads and nearby car parks have been closed off. 

Police say locals should carry ID if they want to enter the security zone.
