Taylor Swift's Reputation Tour will come to Heinz Field on Aug. 7.

The first round of dates for Taylor Swift's "Reputation" stadium tour includes an Aug. 7, 2018, appearance at Heinz Field.

The album's first single, "Look What You Made Me Do," was released Aug. 24 to mixed reactions.

A Variety review said, "Well, it's not just the lipstick that got darker. Taylor Swift sounds like she is never, ever getting back together with her old ingénue image."

The album was released Nov. 11, although it was leaked online 12 hours earlier. Again, reviewers took Swift to task for a not entirely successful turn from catchy, romantic pop tunes to something darker.

On pitchfork.com, reviewer Jamieson Cox said the album "largely abandoned effervescence, wonderment, and narrative. Say goodbye to maple lattes and hello to whiskey on ice, to wine spilling in the bathtub, to Old Fashioneds mixed with a heavy hand."

Pittsburgh fans will be able to judge for themselves when Swift returns to the site of her first stadium performance, when she sang the national anthem before a 2006 Steelers-Bengals game. That also was the first time she performed for a crowd of more than 50,000.

Since then, she's played the venue on her 2011 Speak Now tour, the 2013 Red tour and the 2015 1989 tour.

Tickets for the North American leg of the "Reputation" tour will go on sale to the general public Dec. 13 at ticketmaster.com/TaylorSwift.
