It was a weekend that New England Swifties will remember "All Too Well."
Taylor Swift — who has been a fixture in pop music for years, but has recently seen her popularity catapult to stratospheric heights — performed three massive shows at "Foxy" Foxboro's Gillette Stadium over the weekend, creating lifelong memories for fans and several big moments that have captured the internet's attention.
One legendary night even had the crowd dancing in a storm in their best dress, fearless.
Swift's three Gillette shows were part of her massive Eras Tour, which has been the source of major ticketing woes and months' worth of anticipation. Fans in Massachusetts showed how long they've been looking forward to this weekend's shows, by arriving hours early decked out in lots of "Bejeweled" outfits and letting out thunderous applause — even through pretty heavy rain during Saturday's concert.

Rain Show: 'A Full Deluge That Never Let Up'
All week, the forecast suggested that Saturday would bring rain, raising the prospect of a repeat from Swift's first Gillette Stadium show: a concert in the rain. And sure enough, the weather delivered.
In an Instagram post that garnered over 5 million likes, Swift thanked the "iconic crowd" at Gillette for dancing in the rain Saturday for an entire 3.5-hour-long concert.
"We’ve had rain shows at Gillette Stadium before but this was a full on deluge that never let up," Swift wrote. "I just want to thank that iconic crowd!!"
Swift appeared absolutely drenched during Saturday's show, but it didn't stop her from delivering exhilarating performances of many fan favorites. She even at one point was splashing water off the surface of her piano. The rain also didn't seem to stop the Swifties from enjoying themselves, ponchos and all.
"The fans and crowds in the New England, Boston, Foxboro, Massachusetts, area do not care if it rains. In fact, that kind of makes it more fun for you," Swift told the crowd. "And it makes it more fun for us because we just know that you guys are wild, you guys are just wild. You guys are up for it. And I love you so much for that, thank you."
'I Didn't Play That'
During Sunday night's show, as Swift was seated at her piano, the instrument began to play notes on its own.
Swift looked shocked, asking the audience, "Do you hear that, too?"
It was speculated that the piano was damaged or waterlogged by the torrential rain on Saturday, somehow leading it to play notes on its own.
Extensive Set List, With Surprise Songs
Swift's career — which kickstarted with her eponymous country debut album in 2006 — has been marked by distinct periods that showcase the singer's evolving musical style, outlook and fashion. The Eras Tour takes fans on a journey through those periods, featuring songs from throughout her career.
