Here at the Swift Agency, just a guy who knows how post-concert depression feels, we’d just like to tell you there’s plenty of counseling by your fellow Swifties on Twitter. The Blonde With The Sparkly Guitar did her last concert at Etihad Stadium to a crowd of 47,000 fans in Melbourne, Australia.

According to the Sydney Morning Herald, “She delivers a vivid, carefully constructed show that’s a combination of the polished and the heartfelt.” They also mentioned, “But there are simpler moments, too, with some stripped back songs, both recent and old  – such as All Too Well and You Belong With Me – that take on a new poignancy. And Swift, in strong voice, is the confident centre of it all.”

Take 40 gave her a great review saying: “Taylor Swift proved tonight why she is one of the biggest stars in the world – because she has got what it takes to get an entire stadium of people up on their feet and dancing.” There was even some love for our favorite band, The Agency : “She also has one of the best bands in the business, and the Agency were definitely on fire tonight.”

And yes, the Sparkly Dressed had happy birthday sung to her in Melbourne 🙂

The Rose Garden over Madison Square: Taylor’s garden birthday party!

She had the best day ever, Taylor Nation.

The Enchantress was all smiles as she celebrated her birthday party on December 13, Australia time surrounded by roses. Forget the other celebrities that go clubbing, there’s nothing like a sunny and bright day on a garden to lift the spirits of a the Taylor team as the familiar faces of The Agency can be seen on the background too. Even Lorde, the singer from New Zealand, was on hand. I can’t blame her, you don’t become friends with Taylor casually – you become best friends instantly.

Update: According to Country Weekly, the Blonde With The Sparkly Guitar made a quiet donation of 100,000 USD to the Nashville Symphony. They decided to tweet about it and let the world know that the Queen of Sparks cares about music in ALL its forms.
