Why does this story matter?
The city's mayor will change the name on Monday
Swift will start her national tour at State Farm Stadium and before that, Mayor Jerry P Weiers will likely read aloud a proclamation on Monday that will immediately change the city's name for as long as the Anti-Hero singer is performing in the city. Reportedly, the city wishes to do "something highly unusual" to commemorate Swift's arrival in Glendale and hence, the name change.
The restaurants will also serve Swift-themed menu items
Altering the name of the city to welcome the Grammy Awardee isn't the only thing on the city administration's mind. Per 12 News, "The Westgate Entertainment District is expected to put up welcoming messages and local restaurants will be offering Swift-themed menu items." The singer-songwriter will reportedly spend two nights in Glendale (March 17, 18) as part of her The Eras tour.
The city is writing its own 'Love Story' for Swift
The city's statement read, "There is no need to calm down, we're fearless and doing something highly unusual to celebrate the fact that Taylor's concerts start right here!" "We know all too well that she's one of the most influential artists of her generation and we are writing our own love story for her and greeting every Swiftie in style!"
