Thousands upon thousands of fans, each fan more costumed than the last, showed up at the Tokyo Dome on Tuesday for the first date of the 1989 World Tour.

To be precise, 55,000 Taylor Swift fans in one very big room.

And that count included arguably Swift’s biggest fan, her mother Andrea Swift.

The tour kickoff comes nearly a month after Swift, 25, revealed her mother’s battle with cancer.

“She wanted you to know because your parents may be too busy juggling everything they’ve got going on to go to the doctor, and maybe you reminding them to go get checked for cancer could possibly lead to an early diagnosis and an easier battle Or peace of mind in knowing that they’re healthy and there’s nothing to worry about,” she wrote on Tumblr.

“She wanted you to know why she may not be at as many shows this tour. She’s got an important battle to fight.”

Fans took to Twitter with their sweet Swift family sightings, just weeks after the pair’s emotional ACM Awards appearance.

Swift’s father, Scott, also made the rounds.
