The rep tour in Seattle, WA: Holy Ground

The news of her death were greatly exagerated, Taylor Nation.

Here at the Swift Agency, just a guy who once in a while feels like being petty, we have to exercise great self-restraint not to call out certain articles. Although I don’t like when people call things wrong, it doesn’t feel right to call out professional news reporters even when they were too quick to judge.

Instead, for an example of great accurate reporting, try Los Angeles Magazine. They did an amazing review, casually mentioning a few news article who were too hasty in predicting a downfall. The rep tour, they accurately report, “isn’t a disaster – it’s a victory lap.” I couldn’t agree more. It’s a recommended read.

On May 22, the CenturyLink Field in Seattle, Washington once again prove the rep tour is not dead at all. The Seattle Times does give her props, albeit they believe her voice was lost amidst the production. They do credit her for the final result. I quote: “Swift gave a master class in how to cap a stadium gig with what was refreshingly more of a knockout finale than applause-hungry encore (though cheer they did).”

The secret song was “Holy Ground” from T’s Red Album.

The Sparkly Dressed also had to one less ally last night as Camila Cabello had to sit this one out due to be dehydrated. Not surprising given her stanning moments and her performance at the 2018 Billboard Music Awards on Sunday, May 20. Both Taylor and opening act Charli XCX made sure that the crowd knew Camila was missed. They had to perform “Shake It Off” without her.
