CHICAGO — Taylor Swift’s two sold out shows at Soldier Field over the weekend paid special tribute to Mount Greenwood’s Emily Beazley. Swift rocked out while wearing Beazley’s favorite colors — purple and green.
The audience also lit up for Beazley. Fans received LED wristbands at the 1989 World Tour concert that sync colors with Swift’s performance. Sunday night, the crowd at Soldier Field turned purple and green.
Beazley, who was a huge Swift fan, passed away at the age of 12 in May after a four-year battle with cancer. Back in April, Beazley even received a phone call from Swift.
“Emily has a smile from ear to ear,” Nadia Lopez Beezley, Emily’s mom, posted to Facebook after the 10 minute call.
While Swift didn’t publicly acknowledge the tribute, Beazley’s supporters shared images from the show on social media over the weekend, thanking her for “lighting it up” for Emily.
Swift played two sold out shows in Chicago. On Saturday, she invited Andy Grammer and Empire actress Serayah on stage to perform with her. Sunday, she was joined by Sam Hunt.
