Happy Thanksgiving, Taylor Nation! I’m thankful for you 🙂

The Blonde With The Sparkly Guitar went global as The RED Tour revved its engines and started anew at Vector Arena in Auckland, New Zealand on November 29. Here at the Swift Agency, just a guy who’s always thankful for all the people who choose to read this blog, we know everyone had a ball.

We’d also like to take the opportunity and thank all the members of The Agency, the back up singers, the techs, the roadies and everyone in Team Taylor for the sacrifice of going halfway around the world and not being able to spend  Thanksgiving with their families. Guys and gals, you rock. Thanks for all your hard work.

According to the New Zealand Herald, “The leggy blonde was confident, energetic, chatty, and all smiles as she basked in the adoration of her fans.” The author, Lydia Jenkin, was particularly impressed with Taylor’s performance during Red calling it “one of her stand out vocal performances of the evening, showcasing her ability to swing between fragile and vulnerable, and charging power.”

Meanwhile, the Fairfax NZ News reported via Stuff that kiwi artist Lorde was at the concert, putting an end to rumors of any animosity between the two songstresses. You can read about the end of that rumor at Stuff NZ.

The Sydney Morning Herald decided to highlight the fact that the Enchantress has reached  Madonna-level status. Which she has done, if I might add, without emulating Madonna-level style.

The Blonde With The Sparkly Guitar has retired You Belong With Me from the set list, but it made a comeback as the secret song of her first RED Tour opening concert, November 29. Let’s go to the video!
