Hello Taylor Nation,

The Princess in Red continues what has been an amazing tour. September is the last month of the RED Tour for the US and the fans in Fargo, North Dakota have been waiting a long time. The wait ended last night, September 6, as the Blonde With The Sparkly RED Guitar took the stage to thunderous applause. You can read the review from the Fargodome at Inforum.

Here at the Swift Agency, just another Canadian mourning Summer’s departure, we’re among the lucky ones that will attend the concert in Nashville. However, I don’t know how she’s going to top off the concerts in LA.

Here’s official backstage footage of the surprise guests’ performances at the Staples Center back in August:

Update! Here’s the secret song for Fargo, Speak Now. I must confess, I’ve never been a big fan of this song. The lyrics lend themselves to a lot of theater when performed live, but I don’t like melody. if I had to come up with an equivalent song on RED it would be The Lucky One, which is also full of visuals and theater (yes, I know the subject is totally different).

The Enchantress has also appeared in a series of Diet Coke’s Stay Extraordinary ads.

Just so we’re clear, I’m not endorsing soda. Try water, coffee or tea if you want a healthier choice. Keep it low on the sugar is best, but zero on the sugar replacements is better. Sorry for the unwanted advice but this is my blog, so my opinion is in it. You can love Taylor’s music without being a fan of the brands she endorses. I believe it’s ok to have soda once in a while but not all the time.

Here’s the long version of the Diet Coke ad with the Sparkly Dressed.
