If it’s raining Saturday evening, you can bring a small, compact umbrella to the Taylor Swift concert at Arrowhead Stadium but you can’t use it — at least not inside the seating bowl.

And those are just some of the rules shared by Arrowhead Stadium.

The National Weather Service says there is a 20 percent chance of showers for the 7 p.m. show, which opens with Camila Cabello and Charli XCX.

If you plan on using zTrip vehicles, they will have preferred access through Gate 1 and will drop off and pick up on the east side of the stadium between Lots A and B on Red Coat Lane.

A drop-off and pick-up area in Lot J is for concertgoers using other rideshare services or who are being transported by someone not attending the concert. Those vehicles must use Gate 2.

The stadium gates will open at 5 p.m. Floor seating ticket holders must enter through Gate G to receive their wristbands.

All tickets are mobile-entry only. Concert-goers should access their mobile tickets and parking passes in advance. Staff will be stationed at tents outside the stadium gates to assist with mobile tickets.
