Light spoilers, Taylor Nation. Like zero sugar. There’s some spoilers though.
Obviously, we have to say something about it to make a post, of course. The 1989 World Tour started last night, May 20, in Bossier City, Louisiana. I won’t be able to do a review until I actually attend in concert, which won’t happen until July. Here at the Swift Agency, just a guy who’s gotta work with a budget, we’ve chronicled Fearless, Speak Now and Red. Crazily enough, this is the first post of many to come, each per each concert stop she does. I might group cities that get several concerts in one post though.
Bossier City got the honor of being the place in which the North American leg of the 1989 World Tour is launched.

Okey, this is going to be a challenge. Of course, this is an inside post so I have to reveal something. Past hits have been revamped. Descriptions courtesy of Brian Mansfield. Expect a “dark, almost threatening turn” for I Knew You Were Trouble. Love Story is now “bass-heavy synth-pop number”. And for We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together, well… Brian certainly gives it high praise by saying that “would have done Joan Jett proud”. The set list is now the same that Rock in Rio, which means that Wonderland is included.
