Camila Cabello and Charli XCX are hitting the road with Taylor Swift! The ‘End Game’ singer announced the two stars will be opening for her on the ‘Reputation’ world tour!
UPDATE: Taylor Swift confirmed via her Instagram Stories on March 1 that Camila Cabello and Charli XCX would be opening her upcoming world tour!
Camila Cabello is officially Taylor Swift‘s opening act on her upcoming world tour, along with Charli XCX! We’re super stoked, but not entirely surprised. The rumors began before the official announcement when Portland’s Live 95.5 posted a photo of an upcoming promotion where fans can win a trip to London to see Taylor and Camila in concert at Wembley Stadium on June 22. While the tweet has since been deleted, the image lives on through screenshots.
There was also more info previously released to solidify that “Havana” songstress would be joining Tay on her Reputation tour. “Camila is in final talks to open for bestie Taylor’s tour,” an insider told Us Weekly, who added that the former Fifth Harmony member will be finishing up a short solo tour before hitting the road with her bestie. “It’s 99 percent a done deal.” Eek!

Naturally, Camilizers and Swifties are mindblown over the amazing news. “Camila opening for Taylor is the best thing to happen since sliced bread,” one fan reacted. “Camila is really opening for Taylor this is really happening?? This is so HUGE for her I’m shook,” wrote another. Many fans pointed out how big of an opportunity this is for the newly solo (and highly successful) artist. The “Shake It Off” singer helped launch the careers of musicians who have opened for her on previous tours. Shawn Mendes performed on the 1989 world tour from 2014-2015, along with Vance Joy. Ed Sheeran also made waves when he opened on his good pal’s Red world tour from 2013-2014. Honestly, if this doesn’t happen now it’d be just plain cruel.
This won’t be the first time the pair performed at the same venue. During her 1989 tour, the “End Game” singer invited various stars to perform one of their singles with her on different stops of her tour. Lorde, Ellie Goulding, Selena Gomez, John Legend, and more famous faces were among the special guests. On Aug. 14, 2015, the headliner brought Fifth Harmony out to perform at Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara, California. At the time, Camila was still part of the group and performed “Worth It” alongside her band members and Taylor. They all wore matching blue outfits, and Camila even lent one of her own to the 10-time Grammy winner. Can’t wait to see them on tour together with Charli!
Camila later chimed in with her own stoked reaction, screaming about the good news then breaking out in song:
