Hey ho Taylor Nation,
Here at the Swift Agency, just a guy who didn’t picked that name for tax-evading purposes, we will never have as busy a weekend as the Sparkly Dressed. The XCel Energy Center in St. Paul, Minnesota was the location for two more concerts from the RED Tour.
The review from Vita.mn points albeit harshly to meticulous planning. “There was not one move – from the tossing of her hair to the little speeches to her handing out guitar picks to fans – that wasn’t calculated, scripted and choreographed,” reads the article. “But the vibe of the “Red” album almost dictated that.”
It’s an honest review. As much heart as the Princess in Red pours into the show, it is scripted beforehand. It doesn’t mean she doesn’t go through the same feelings every night. You can read the entire article at Vita.mn.
The Blonde With The Sparkly RED Guitar also won Top Selling Album of the Year at the Canadian Country Music Awards. She didn’t attend.
And finally, the recent rumors about song Sweeter Than Fiction might be… not fiction. We’ve been holding on saying anything about it for a while. The song is supposed to play during the end credits of the Paul Potts biopic movie, One Chance. The official word that it does exist comes directly from the Queen of Sparks herself:
Yes, we’re aware that Scott Borchetta replied to someone asking about it but it wasn’t cut and dry just yet. In addition to this, now we know Taylor is attending the Toronto International Film Festival.
The secret performance at the B stage on Saturday, September 7 was Tell Me Why from the album Fearless.
The wildcard song on Sunday, September 8 turned out to be the first ever performance of Sad Beautiful Tragic from the album RED.
