Inside 1989 Cleveland: The 1989 World Tour at Quicken Loans Arena

We are all in, Taylor Nation. Spoilers.

The Blonde With The Sparkly 1989 Microphone was also all in last night, June 3, as she brought the 1989 World Tour to Quicken Loans Arena in Cleveland, Ohio. Here at the Swift Agency, just a guy who’s trying to remain awake with very little sleep, we’re going to try to give you a spoiler-free article about the show (note: this is not going to work, hence spoiler warning). According to NewsNet5, T-Swizzle wished the Cavaliers good luck in the NBA Finals.

Taylor probably played a bunch of songs on a stage that might or might not have lighting… Just kidding 🙂 It’s not easy doing this without giving away anything. Back to the inside scoop.

I do want to talk about one thing that you’ve probably noticed. We’re not getting a B Stage, or a walking-through-the-crowd moment. This is only my speculative mind at work, but I think Taylor has realized she’d rather save the time and logistics so that she can invest them in jam packing the concert with the current full set from start to finish. The whole concept of the B Stage was to get closer to the fans and she’s accomplishing that goal using a super-long catwalk, which moves. We’ll still miss the B stage for what it was, and thank Tay for trying new ways to get closer.

As discussed during TaylorTalk’s tour predictions, I had an idea for Shake It Off concerning the fans. Previous to the closing number, she could invite a few of them backstage, they’d be told to just follow a person and suddenly they’d appear on the stage dancing with Taylor during the closing number. Probably too many logistics involved, and now with the moving stage there’s actually little real state to add any more people. I guess they could stay in the main stage but then there’s the whole clueless-people-in-the-way kind of deal as we got dancers moving back and forth. I guess it’s too much people traffic. Still, please totally consider it?

A shoutout to The Agency’s Paul Sidoti, Cleveland’s own born and raised 🙂
