Warning: The following is an inside article that talks about certain events that happened in a Speak Now Tour concert. Since some stuff gets revealed, you might want to skip this post if you’d rather be surprised when you attend your concert.
I have a feeling everyone is going to be asking for rain now.
The lyrics in her arm, “She said, ‘I think I’ll go to Boston'” which the Sparkly Dressed had written on her first of her two shows at the Gillette Stadium are from the song Boston by the rock band Augustana.
According to the Boston Globe, the highlight of the night begun as a light rain turned into a downpour at the Gillette Stadium on June 25. The Outspoken One, not one to shy away from getting wet, seemed to embrace it. Why wouldn’t she, she used to use artificial rain on her closing number during the Fearless Tour. The rain caused the rest of the show to feel a bit more unscripted and, according to the Boston Globe, “heartfelt”.
The light rain started during Fearless, and grew to a downpour that drenched out both the Sparkly Dressed and The Agency during Long Live.
The Enchantress could not stop mouthing “Oh my God” as she realized nobody had moved or left their seats. Taylor would even tweet about it later:
You can read the original story at the Boston Globe, who adds that the official tally was 55,000 people.
The Sun Chronicle got it right for the most part in their review as well, although their review refers to the “Speak Up” Tour. We’ll let that typo slide this time. They had much praise for Taylor. Here’s a sample:
She is the new generation of entertainer, fusing all genres of the business together for a wonderful melange. But she is humble and repeatedly thanked the sold-out crowd of 55,000 for spending their Saturday night with her.

Here is the Forever and Always Fearless One, singing Long Live in the pouring rain.
