It was Super Saturday Night indeed, Taylor Nation!
The Blonde With The Sparkly 1989 Microphone took the stage at Club Nomadic in Houston, Texas for Super Saturday Night, February 4 for what could be her only concert of 2017. Or at least, the only concert she’s aware by her own admission.
“By coming to this show tonight you are attending 100% of this year’s tour dates,” she said to the nine thousand people in attendance.
Ruby Rose performed DJ duties before the big show started off. The pre-party was Taylor-ed for Swifties with a variety of snacks named after T-Swizzle’s most famous lyrics. All You Had To Do Was Satay Chicken and I Knew You Were Truffle Waffles were available for purchase. The main act didn’t start until well past eleven. The waiting was a killer, and for the hardcore crowd which surrounded the circular stage, dehydration was a very real struggle.
The Enchantress chose to open with “New Romantics” which she’s done before, and works really well as an opener. Up next would come “22”, “Blank Space”, “I Knew You Were Trouble” (I want to say truffle from now on) and “Style”.
And then she sang an acoustic version of “I Don’t Want To Live Forever”.
Yeah, consider all chill lost at this point if there was any left. However, I was glad to find out she still brought out “You Belong With Me”. She followed that with “This Is What You Came For”. That was followed by another surprise, a first time ever live rendition of “Better Man”.
Get up from the floor, we’re not done yet. “Red”, “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together”, “Love Story”, “All Too Well”, “Wildest Dreams”, “Bad Blood”, “Out Of Woods” and “Shake If Off” completed the set list, as if Taylor was making a best hits album.
It almost makes me forgive them for that livestream of a wall of flowers. Makes me wonder if nobody at AT&T actually thought of pointing the camera at, and I know this is going to sound a little crazy but hear me out, the artist known as Taylor Swift we were all wishing we’d be watching that night? I like I said, almost.
I’m glad the night at Club Nomadic had a lot more thought put into it, but impatient little me might have not survived in a club surrounded by people left and right. I am glad for everyone who got to see the Queen of Sparks. I really hope there’s another chance for her this year to perform and, who knows, another album in the works sometime soon?
And now, let the social media flood begin. I’ve had to trim this down as much as possible since the page is already very video-heavy. Sorry about that.
