A hundred-thousand ‘Swifties’ are descending on Seattle for two nights of Taylor Swift concerts at Lumen Field.

It all began Friday morning as “Swifties” lined up for concert-only merchandise. And, like the tickets, it doesn’t come cheap.

A tour t-shirt can run $60 and up.

But, that’s nothing compared to the price of the concert itself.

StubHub lists prices from $1,000-$8,000.

The excitement grew as soon as Swift announced her concerts this weekend. We found people coming from as far away as Rhode Island.

KIRO Newsradio’s Sam Campbell found a pair of fans who are ready for the weekend complete with pillows, blankets, and a tarp.

The merchandise is already available for sale outside the northwest and southwest corners of the stadium. Bring your credit card.

Fans started lining up at 3:30 a.m.
