Even the people who run the government can’t resist shaking it off to Taylor Swift.

Several U.S. representatives are reportedly hawking tickets with hefty price tags for the 25-year-old singer’s upcoming stop in Washington, D.C.

For $2,500, fans can attend her July show at Nationals Stadium with one of three sitting Democratic politicians, reports the Washington Post. Wisconsin Rep. Gwen Moore, Florida Rep. Lois Frankel and Illinois Rep. Cheri Bustos have all reportedly offered tickets as part of their fundraising campaigns.

Those willing to pay the steep price will get to join one of the representatives in suites for Swift’s blockbuster tour.

One Republican congressman is also hosting a 1989 concert experience, according to invitations obtained by the Post. Ohio Rep. Steve Stivers’s suite is offering tickets for $1,500 for one person or $2,500 for two guests.

Swift’s world tour, for her chart-topping pop album 1989, kicked off in Japan on Tuesday, with nearly 55,000 fans packing into the Tokyo Dome.

Concertgoers went all out for the opening performance, showing up in varying and impressive forms of Swift cosplay, including cheerleader Swift and crazy-eyed Swift.

Hopefully the lawmakers have their coordinated costumes at the ready!
