Hello Taylor Nation,
Here at the Swift Agency, still one guy that just came back from a much needed vacation, we were not there for the final curtain to the Speak Now World Tour at the Vector Arena in Auckland, New Zealand in March 18. I still consider myself one of the luckiest fans for being able to see the Speak Now tour several times in the US and even once in Montreal.
To please her fans, she wore the New Zealand’s All Blacks rugby team shirt on stage during her encore presentation. You can see pictures and the full story at Daily Mail.
The Outspoken One was certainly reminiscing of her last Speak Now Tour concert in the US that ended in New York which included a surprise appearance by James Taylor. The Sparkly Dressed is actually named after him. The Arm Lyrics were: “You know wherever I am, I’ll come running to see you again” from You’ve Got A Friend by James Taylor at Vector Arena in Auckland, New Zealand on March 18, 2012.
Just the night before, on March 17, the Enchantress premiered the other song she has on the Hunger Games soundtrack: here’s Eyes Open for the first time. It won’t be the last. It was not a coincidence that she used Arm Lyrics from that song that night: “Every lesson forms a new scar.”
Remember tomorrow the voting opens for the 47th ACM Awards‘ Entertainer of the Year! Taylor is, of course, a nominee.
