Taylor Swift kicked off the first of three Reputation tour dates at Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, MA Thursday night (July 26) and gave some grieving Massachusetts police officers and firefighters something to look forward to.
The nearby town of Weymouth has been in mourning since losing police sergeant Michael Chesna, who was shot and killed in the line of duty while investigating a car accident on July 15.
According to The Patriot Ledger, the 28-year-old sent her condolences in the form of hundreds of tickets to her three-night Massachusetts stand.
Weymouth Mayor Robert Hedlund told the Ledger that Swift provided “a significant number of tickets” to the town, which were distributed among local police officers and firefighters.
“My understanding is that they did it low-key and weren’t looking for publicity,” Hedlund said. “There were enough to send every police officer, firefighter and extended family to the concert, and then some.”
“The gesture was absolutely generous, significant and appreciated,” he continued.
This isn't the only good deed Swift has done this year. Earlier this month, it was revealed the pop star FaceTimed with a teen who had recently been involved in a school shooting. She also visited an 8-year-old burn victim in the hospital and invited 2,000 foster families to her Reputation tour rehearsal.
