Aaron Rodgers pays tribute to ‘legendary and epic human’ Taylor Swift and ‘spectacular’ Phoebe Bridgers after enjoying star’s Eras Tour at ‘new home’ MetLife Stadium
Aaron Rodgers had perhaps his best weekend in New York as he went to see two nights of Taylor Swift’s Era’s Tour at Metlife Stadium.
The quarterback will play there later in the year after leaving the Green Bay Packers for the New York Jets in a trade that has captivated the NFL.
But over the weekend, Rodgers was an unabashed Swifty as he went to see the pop star in concert.
Reflecting on the shows on his Instagram on Monday night, Rodgers said: ‘Amazing weekend at my new home #metlifestadium with special friends Miles and @keleighteller, a bunch of new ones and the legendary @taylorswift who absolutely rocked the house for 3 1/2 hour every night!!!
“She is truly a talented artist and an epic human, and @phoebebridgers was spectacular as well.
Aaron Rodgers took to Instagram to thank Taylor Swift for her recent shows in New York
New Jets QB Rodgers was there for two of Swift’s three nights at MetLife Stadium
“Thank you to the amazing security guards, the lovely fans I met, and all of the Tour hospitality on both nights. Hopefully we can make MetLife as loud this year.”
Rodgers tagged Kelleigh Teller – wife of actor Miles Teller – in his Instagram post as well as his former Packers teammate David Bakhtiari.
The Jets quarterback turned out to be a huge Taylor Swift fan in a video posted on the team’s official Twitter account, where players were asked to indicate their favorite song from the singer whose Eras tour is stopping at MetLife Stadium this weekend.
‘Too much. Too many to count,’ the 39-year-old said when asked.
Then he got a little more specific.
‘All that is not [her album] “Folklore” probably. ‘August,’ ‘The 1st.’
Rodgers also offered an older pick to round out his picks from Swift’s 2020 album, as he called “New Year’s Day” a “banger.”
