Inside Rock in Rio USA: We found Wonderland! Taylor brings out Ed Sheeran!

Spoiler content ahead, Taylor Nation. Not the entire show 🙂

Taylor Swift played Rock in Rio USA, which took place in Las Vegas because reasons, last night May 15, 2015. After the wait the audience actually got what they wanted: a full 1989 World Tour concert performance. I chose this picture because it was posted by the Queen of Sparks (and taken by bass player extraordinaire, Amos J. Heller) but also it doesn’t give away the stage, just the piano and a good look at the huge City of Rock venue.
