The rep tour London: Take a deep breath now. Taylor gets a long ovation!

Tell them how the crowds went wild, Taylor Nation.

Here at the Swift Agency, just a guy who’s getting some much needed down time, we’re sneaking some quick blogging. Shh. The Blonde With The Three Story Building Snake might say her old self is dead, but the crowd at Wembley Stadium brought her back with a good old-fashioned screaming ovation of about three minutes long. You probably remember these from all the way back in the beginning.

The moment happened as a group of fans in the crowd had organized themselves to hold up signs that said “Proud” during the performance of “New Year’s Day”. Cue the Sparkly Dressed getting awestruck. “Those signs that you have,” reacted Tay. “That’s crazy. That’s so organized. How’d you even do that? I love you guys so much.”

Does anybody else feel a long running theme that seems to mirror the lyrics of “Long Live” happening in this tour so far or am I reading too much from the little moments?

Taylor sang “So It Goes” acoustic for the first time on guitar on June 22nd.

 

She also invited Niall Horan to the stage to sing “Slow Hands”.

The Enchantress payed one moment of nostalgia with another on June 23 since it was the fifteenth show of the rep tour. You guessed it, it was time to remember “Fifteen”.

Finally, she brought out Robbie Williams to perform “Angels” on her last night at Wembley Stadium.

With her last performance at Wembley, T-Swizzle ends the UK leg of the rep tour. Her next stop will be back in the US of A in Louisville, Kentucky.

Coming up next in the Calendar:

  • June 22 & 23: Wembley Stadium. London, United Kingdom.
  • June 30: Papa John’s Cardinal Stadium. Louisville, KY.
  • July 7: Ohio Stadium. Columbus, OH.
  • July 10 & 11: FedExField. Washington, DC.
  • July 13 & 14: Lincoln Financial Field. Philadelphia, PA.

The rep tour Dublin: The 13th concert of reputation gets marked

It was not permanent marker, Taylor Nation.

Here at the Swift Agency, just a guy who appreciates all the throwbacks to the past tours of the Sparkly Dressed, we’re deep in nostalgia this weekend. The Blonde With The Sparkly Snake Microphone decided to commemorate the thirteen show of the tour and encore performance at Croke Park in Dublin, Ireland with a very familiar drawing on her hand.

The thirteen, drawn in marker by Andrea Swift, has not been seen since the days of The Fearless Tour. Am I wrong in thinking that it also used to appear during the Speak Now Tour?

Taylor’s surprise songs on the B-stage were acoustic versions of “Mean” on Friday, June 15 and “How You Get The Girl” on Saturday, June 16th.

And as a bonus, here’s Camila Cabello paying homage to a recent trend of going “1, 2, 3, let’s go…” during a pause in “Delicate”. Of course that is usually followed by “b*tch” (don’t ask me, I didn’t start it) but she made sure to cut the clip before that so we’ll never know if she actually said it 😉

London’s Wembley is coming up next.

Coming up next in the Calendar:

  • June 22 & 23: Wembley Stadium. London, United Kingdom.
  • June 30: Papa John’s Cardinal Stadium. Louisville, KY.
  • July 7: Ohio Stadium. Columbus, OH.
  • July 10 & 11: FedExField. Washington, DC.
  • July 13 & 14: Lincoln Financial Field. Philadelphia, PA.

The rep tour Manchester: It is such an honour to play for you tonight

Capture it, remember it, Taylor Nation.

The Blonde With The Sparkly Snake Microphone played the Etihad Stadium in Manchester on June 8 and 9. Along for the ride, were her already popular opening acts Charli XCX and Camila Cabello.

The Enchantress had something to say to the crowd. Just over a year ago, Manchester was the setting for a terror attack, a bombing that took the lives of 22 people just after an Ariana Grande concert on May 22nd, 2017. Taylor wanted to make sure they knew she remembered.

“What happened a year ago was an attempt to steal that innocent and excitement of a pop concert and since then you’ve shown such strength,” she told the crowd. “You’ve shown you have such incredible resilience to keep dancing and to keep the joy and keep the excitement. I just want to say, Manchester, it is such an honour to play for you tonight.”

Taylor’s surprise songs on the B-stage were acoustic versions of “I Knew You Were Trouble” on Friday, June 8 and “I Don’t Wanna Live Forever” on Saturday, June 9th. You can find a growing compilation of her surprise songs on Billboard.

Dublin, Ireland you are next!

Coming up next in the Calendar:

  • June 15: Croke Park. Dublin, Ireland.
  • June 22: Wembley Stadium. London, United Kingdom.
  • June 30: Papa John’s Cardinal Stadium. Louisville, KY.

Taylor Swift at the Biggest Weekend

Happy weekend, Taylor Nation.

The Blonde With The Sparkly Snake Microphone was one of the big headliners at the BBC Music’s Biggest Weekend in Swansea, Wales. Of course you want to see it… But I can’t really give you the entire show. The BBC has the entire thing on their BBC iPlayer, but there’s a region lock on it. They were decent enough to share at least one gorgeous performance, so feel free to enjoy it below.

 

One thing that is being a common pattern in all these performances is how much the audience has missed the Enchantress, although you can also feel how much she’s missed her audience as well. The Sparkly Dressed will come back to the UK in June, right after her two big shows in Chicago.

Bonus! Here’s Camila Cabello performing “Havana”.

Coming up next in the Calendar!

  • June 1& 2: Soldier Field. Chicago, IL.
  • June 8: Etihad Stadium. Manchester, United Kingdom
  • June 15: Croke Park. Dublin, Ireland.
  • June 22: Wembley Stadium. London, United Kingdom.
  • June 30: Papa John’s Cardinal Stadium. Louisville, KY.
