Taylor Swift. 1989 Tour. MetLife Stadium. Last night. Best concert EVER!
I’ve been looking forward to this concert for a long time now. Not just since October when the 1989 album was released but since I last saw her at MetLife Stadium for the Red Tour in July 2013. THAT is how amazing Taylor Swift is in concert! Last night, she had the sold out crowd of 60,000 dancing from the very first chords of Welcome To New York. She played for nearly two and a half hours and, between songs, she talked with her fans about the kind of things you talk about with a best friend . . . things like heartbreak and the risk of comparing yourself to others on Instagram.
Taylor’s ability to make every fan in the stadium feel like she was talking directly to them is what has allowed her to make the transition from country to pop so easily. Her fans are her friends and support her whatever the genre. And she shows her appreciation for those fans in so many ways. Last night, she had a guest performance by Nick Jonas and her supermodel friends joined her on the catwalk before Style, which was so much fun to see. She played all the songs from the 1989 album, revamped some old favorites, and even included an acoustic rendition of You Belong With Me that I absolutely LOVED! It was an amazing night and I am so lucky I got to see her. Best night ever!
