Gelsenkirchen Temporarily Changes Name to Swiftkirchen for Taylor Swift’s Concert

Germany's city Gelsenkirchen has temporarily changed its name to Swiftkirchen to honor Taylor Swift's upcoming concert. This unique gesture shows the excitement and support for the Grammy-winning artist's "Fearless (Taylor's Version)" tour.

The city of Gelsenkirchen, Germany, has temporarily changed its name to Swiftkirchen in honor of Taylor Swift’s upcoming concert in the city. The name change, which translates to “Swift’s Church,” is a nod to the singer’s highly anticipated “Fearless (Taylor’s Version)” tour.

The decision to rename the city was made by the mayor, who is a self-proclaimed fan of Swift’s music. He stated that the name change is a way to show their excitement and welcome the Grammy-winning artist to their city.

The name change has caused quite a buzz among fans, with many expressing their excitement and appreciation for the gesture. Some have even started referring to the city as “Swiftkirchen” on social media.

This is not the first time a city has changed its name to honor a celebrity. In 2018, the city of Clark, Texas, temporarily renamed itself to “DISH” in honor of the satellite TV provider, Dish Network. However, this is the first time a city has changed its name to welcome a musician.

The name change will be in effect for the duration of Swift’s concert, which is scheduled for June 2022. The city has also announced plans to decorate the streets with banners and posters featuring the singer’s name and image.

Swift’s “Fearless (Taylor’s Version)” tour is highly anticipated by fans, as it marks her first tour since the release of her re-recorded album. The tour will feature songs from her first six albums, including the re-recorded versions of her hit songs.

The city of Gelsenkirchen, or rather Swiftkirchen, is looking forward to welcoming the singer and her fans to their city. The name change is a unique and creative way to show their support and appreciation for Swift’s music.
