Hello Taylor Nation!

The Outspoken One played her first concert in November, and the last stadium show of the Speak Now Tour. The Sparkly Dressed performed at Minute Maid Park in Houston, Texas last night, November 5.

The Arm Lyrics were: “It’s love’s illusions I recall. I really don’t know love at all.” from Both Sides Now by Joni Mitchell.

According to the Houston Chronicle, “This was her sharpest, most effective show to date.” The review points out that although the Minute Maid Park stadium is not really ideal for music, Taylor played up to every seat making it both a huge and intimate concert. You can read the whole review at the Houston Chronicle site.

The Blonde With The Sparkly Guitar also brought out Nelly for a surprise duet of Just A Dream. Update! This one has better sound:

  1. It’s just amazing that Taylor can ask her favourite artists to join her on stage…and these world class artists jump at the chance to sing with her!!!

  2. Did Taylor sing “Mine” on Sat. at Minute Maid Park? I do not remember her singing that song.

    1. No, she’s been skipping “Mine” on her latest concerts, although “Ours” seems to have been added to the playlist.

  3. Ours is the new single 🙂 But, does she play it when Mine used to be played or just later in the show? I think that’s a shame though, Mine live is amazing… She should just play all of her songs, 5 hour concert 😀

    1. I understand she’s back to playing Mine. Ours is played at about the time she comes out to play Fifteen, during the encore (on the couch). In the last concerts she hasn’t played any covers or brought out any guest artists for a duet, though.
