G’day, Taylor Nation!
Picture if you will, the Allianz stadium in Sydney, Australia with 40,000 fans in attendance and a silhouette behind a RED curtain. Down under, they don’t need to imagine it anymore. The Sparkly Dressed opened up a can of awesome on her first night, December 4 – her first concert in Australia. It’s warm over there. Here at the Swift Agency, just a guy who forgot his scarf at his sister’s place, we hope you’re enjoying the snow machine. It comes back on December every time.
And the reviews are in!
According to News Limited Network, “Her musicality is undeniable as evidenced by those pristine live vocals which can be tough to push out in such a big crowded space and her playing.”
The Sydney Morning Herald mentions a pop star should have, “an appealing personality, a heap of irresistible anthems and enough slick visuals to make those who have come to see them feel like they’ve got their money’s worth.” Adding also that, “A bit of genuine musical talent doesn’t hurt, either.” Of course, they do attest to the Princess in Red having all those attributes in abundance. However, they’d like shorter speeches (Come on! You gotta love her speeches). Still, a positive note altogether.
The setlist was the same than in New Zealand, with You Belong With Me becoming part of the acoustic set at the B Stage. So far, no surprise guest stars. She also did this adorable chant where she went “Aussie, Aussie, Aussie!” and everyone chanted back “OI, OI, OI.” It’s a thing over there. Let’s go to the clip!
