Here at the Swift Agency, just a guy who kinda sorta has a life but not really, we’re always catching up with the Blonde With The Green Guitar (don’t worry the sparkly guitar is back there somewhere). Taylor Swift performed at one of her iconic places, the Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, MA on July 26, 27 and 28. She actually brought Hayley Kiyoko to the stage to perform “Curious” on the first night.

The Princess in Red also surprised the audience on the same night singing “22” on the b-stage.

The second night the surprise song was “Change”. Yes, the song from Fearless, you got that right. In 2018. This tour is nostalgia central for old school fans.

The Enchantress sang “Ours” as the surprise song on the last night. I know this is a favourite of many fans out there.

And with that, July flew past. Coming up in August: Toronto, CANADA! 🙂

Coming up next in the Calendar:

  • August 3 & 4: Rogers Centre. Toronto, ON.

The rep tour East Rutherford: With you, I’d dance in a storm in my best dress

Wish me luck. Blogging is hard, Taylor Nation.

The Sparkly Dressed (and slightly damped) performed on East Rutherford, New Jersey at the MetLife Stadium on July 20th, 21st and 22nd.

On her first day, she performed “Welcome To New York” as the surprise song for the b-stage (sorry that song is kinda meh for me). She also messed up a note during her piano performance of “New Year’s Day”, which prompted her to stop, apologize humorously and restart because this is Tay after all.

She had rain to deal with the following night which meant that she unavoidably had to dance in the rain which led to her choosing the iconic “Fearless” as her surprise song for the b-stage because how could she not.

She also brought back “Clean” to perform along just before the “Long Live/New Year’s Day” medley. So does it mean it’s now the “Clean/Long Live/New Year’s Day” medley? Yeah, we’re all going to end up crying here.

With the rain coming down on the third night as well, she decided on a Speak Now gem. She picked “Enchanted” as her surprise song for the last night.

Rain, missteps and all, Taylor just plain took over MetLife Stadium and is now headed for Foxborough, MA and a venue where she has played before: Gillette Stadium. No, you’re not ready for it. Don’t blame me.

Coming up next in the Calendar:

  • July 26, 27 & 28: Gillette Stadium. Foxborough, MA.
  • August 3 & 4: Rogers Centre. Toronto, ON.
  • August 7: Heinz Field. Pittsburgh, PA.
  • August 10 & 11: Mercedes-Benz Stadium. Atlanta, GA.

The rep tour Cleveland: This is the last time I’ll ever call you babe

Happy National Snake Day, Taylor Nation.

The Blonde With The Sparkly Snake Microphone was in Cleveland on July 17, performing at FirstEnergy Stadium. Of course, she had to send some love to her very own guitar player from Cleveland and long time member of The Agency, Paul Sidoti. In case you don’t know, The Agency is the inside name of Taylor’s tour band. We here are just pretenders.

The surprise song from the b-stage on July 17 was “Babe”.

And some people are freaking out because she said “Happy National Snake Day, my favorite day of the year”. Reasons, I guess.

Speaking of snakes… Did anybody notice this before? During “Look What You Made Me Do” the bracelets light up to picture moving snakes across the audience.

Of course the bracelets light up in rhythm with the music, like here during “King of my Heart”. That’s Matt Billingslea on drums by the way 😉

Coming up next in the Calendar:

  • July 20, 21 & 22: MetLife Stadium. East Rutherford, NJ.
  • July 26, 27 & 28: Gillette Stadium. Foxborough, MA.
  • August 3 & 4: Rogers Centre. Toronto, ON.
  • August 7: Heinz Field. Pittsburgh, PA.

The rep tour Philly: Say you’ll remember me

Even though you have to, please try to never grow up, Taylor Nation.

There once was this little girl named Taylor from Wyomissing, Pennsylvania that left her Christmas tree farm to seek out a musical career in Nashville. This past July 13 and 14, she went back to her home state and performed at the Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia. In her own words, she will never change but she will never stay the same either.

All that to lead to the first night, when she said this speech.

The Sparkly Dressed chose “Never Grow Up” as the surprise song for her first night in Philadelphia. I’m pretty sure she had her fans in tears during this one. You can’t really survive those lyrics.

The Enchantress had another surprise in store for the Philly crowd on the second night, when she chose to sang “Treacherous”.

Unbeknownst to her, the second evening had a surprise for Taylor as her flying chariot broke during “Delicate”. So, what did the Forever and Always Fearless One chose to do in such predicament?

Well, time to pull out a song out of the vault and go acapella. “Our Song” was the easy pick.

She still had time so she then went into an impromptu performance of “Wildest Dreams”.

I know some might feel like there’s a part of the concert that gets nixed out of the experience when things break down. But sometimes you get a lot more than you expected. Seeing T-Swizzle just ad lib and then randomly pick a song from thin air is worth more than what you pay for.

Cleveland, are you ready for it?

Coming up next in the Calendar:

  • July 17: FirstEnergy Stadium. Cleveland, OH.
  • July 20, 21 & 22: MetLife Stadium. East Rutherford, NJ.
  • July 26, 27 & 28: Gillette Stadium. Foxborough, MA.

The rep tour DC: Can’t turn back now, I’m haunted!

You and I walk a fragile line, Taylor Nation.

Here at the Swift Agency, just a guy who has never thought he has Taylor figured out, we were definitely not expecting this sudden Speak Now revival. The album, considered by some critics as the weakest of Taylor’s discography, holds a diverse variety of songs that are all over the spectrum plus it remains the one album where all songs were solely written by the Sparkly Dressed.

Washington, D.C. had two nights. The secret song on the b-stage was “State of Grace” from Red on July 10th. The secret song on July 11th came out of nowhere: “Haunted” from Speak Now. That’s amazing and I can only imagine how it must have sounded at FedEx Field. That song is one of the most underrated and experimental tracks from Speak Now. I am glad it had it’s night in Maryland, and I’m rightfully jealous of its audience.

Up next, Taylor visits her hood as she plays Philadelphia’s Lincoln Financial Field.

Coming up next in the Calendar:

  • July 13 & 14: Lincoln Financial Field. Philadelphia, PA.
  • July 17: FirstEnergy Stadium. Cleveland, OH.
  • July 20, 21 & 22: MetLife Stadium. East Rutherford, NJ.
  • July 26, 27 & 28: Gillette Stadium. Foxborough, MA.
