Levi’s Stadium ended up going beyond its curfew of 11 p.m. on Friday night because Taylor Swift was performing there for her first Bay Area gig of the weekend.

Over 70,000 people showed up to see the performer at their Eras Tour stop in Santa Clara. Among those in attendance were notable figures such as Mark Zuckerberg, CEO of Meta, and model Gigi Hadid.

It is common knowledge that the show lasts for a very long time because it has songs spanning more than three hours and a variety of “eras” in Taylor Swift’s career. There were no exceptions on Friday night.

As Taylor Swift began her performance, the stadium’s 11 p.m. time limit, which is enforced by a regulation that authorizes weekend activities at the stadium to continue not more than 11 p.m., got ignored. The ordinance permits weekend activities at the stadium to play no later than 11 p.m.

The Santa Clara, California City Council will decide in 2021 whether or not it will permit the stadium to hold five events that are not associated with the NFL that last until 11 p.m. Before the stadium implemented the curfew, neighbors had been complaining about noise problems for years.

However, now that the stadium has a cutoff time of 10 p.m. on weeknights and 11 p.m. on weekends, some popular performers are in violation of the ordinance. Beyoncé has broken the stadium’s curfew on two separate occasions, the first time in 2016 and the second time in 2018; in 2017, U2 along with Coldplay disregarded the stadium’s limit during their respective concerts.

Because of the rule, Ed Sheeran even had to postpone one of his performances there.

The concert by Swift lasted until approximately 11:40 p.m. tonight; she is slated to do a further performance at the stadium, which will be completely sold out.
