Hi Taylor Nation!We here at the offices of the Swift Agency, where you can not even get a decent cup of coffee because the only guy that works here can’t seem to work the coffee machine (I will as soon as we get one), have been a little behind in the news lately. Let’s get you up to date pretty quick.
The Fearless One has performed her first stadium concert as a headliner. So far she’s been filling up arenas, but that changed on the night of May 29. She was the main act at Tiger Stadium in Baton Rouge. The venue’s total capacity for a sports event is 92,400 people but in case of a concert where certain seats are rendered inoperable due to visual obstruction it ends up being much less than that. As reported by T-Swizzle and her entourage the number was around 45,000 fans. According to Beatweek Magazine, and actually viewable easily by everyone on Twitter, both Tay, the Agency and the Fearless dance crew were blown away by the reception and the sheer numbers of the event, not to mention the immensity of the stadium. It’s nice they remain very much down to earth people
Earlier in the week, the blog at Limewire reported Swifty had joined in on the efforts of Musicians On Call, which brings live music to hospital bound listeners. The Fearless One has donated 2 tickets with 2 Meets & Greets for her concert on Tuesday, June 1st on Washington, D. C. Head on to ebay’s Musicians On Call page if you want to participate on the bidding.
Taylor is also participating on the Nashville Rising benefit concert organized by Tim McGraw and Faith Hill on June 22.
Culturemap Houston has reported Pedro Abasolo of Ovations Hair Salon was called in to do the hair and makeup for Swift’s band (and although not reported, probably for the members of her dance crew as well, but that’s my guess) for the concert on Houston at the Toyota Center on Tuesday 25, where the word is the concert was being televised for both a special and a possible DVD . Amazingly enough, the Fearless One was not joining in. She used the same hair and makeup person she uses for every concert – herself.
And on other news, I was pleasantly surprised by the Houston Press article which chose to call Tay a neo-feminist. I strongly agree. Read the article. I’m so glad to find someone that gets the strength behind Taylor’s vulnerability which is often misconstrued by the press as being weak. Finally someone gets it right.
On site news, please check out the new addition to the Videos section, the Acceptance Speeches! Thanks to @Amanda_Faye07 from Twitter for this idea 🙂 Also, in case you missed it, the Gallery finally has images from a Fearless concert courtesy of yours truly.
