Taylor Swift offered hundreds of free tickets to police officers and their families in Weymouth, Massachusetts following the recent death of a local officer.
Weymouth Mayor Robert Hedlund told The Patriot Ledger that the 28-year-old superstar donated “a significant number of tickets” to the town for her upcoming Reputation Tour shows in nearby Foxborough, which were distributed to the local police department.
Weymouth Sgt. Michael Chesna was fatally shot earlier this month while investigating a car crash.
Hedlund said there were enough tickets to send “every police officer, firefighter and extended family to the concert, and then some.”
“My understanding is that they did it low-key and weren’t looking for publicity…The gesture was absolutely generous, significant and appreciated,” Hedlund added.
