I listen to a wide range of music, all depending on my mood. So, it should be to no surprise that I love Taylor Swift, since I first heard always and forever off her fearless album. As a way to congratulate myself on landing a new job in a new city, I bought a floor seat to her 1989 world tour – spent a pretty penny, but let me tell you: it was worth every cent.
From what I’ve gathered from people on social media, this tour is amazing and I knew I had to see it first hand. When I first heard 1989, I wasn’t really feeling it. However, after giving it a few more listens, I fell in love. 1989 had everything – fun songs (like blank space and shake it off), songs about heartbreak (all you had to do was stay), and renewal (clean). Honestly, I think it is her best yet.
I had high hopes for this concert – and she lived up to all my expectations. She performed all but one song from her new album, plus some of her great older songs (i knew you were trouble, anyone?). I sang along to every. single. song. I must have looked like a maniac, dancing like no one’s watching. But honestly, if you can’t dance like no one’s watching, it’s just not a fun concert. My favorite performance throughout the concert was a mash-up of wildest dreams and enchanted. I’m all about the mash-up and these are two of my favorite songs from her. Plus, wildest dreams is her next single, so it was fitting that the performance was amazing.
The set was amazing – from the props to the lighting. When you walked through the doors, you were given a wristband, which made you a part of the concert. It lit up at different parts of the songs, with a wide range of colors. Now that the concert is over, a slight movement causes it to light up – so you could shake it off and remember the concert. I was also able to pick up some swag, including this muscle tee and cute drawstring bag.
Also, Taylor usually brings guests along to her concert and she had Fetty Wap perform trap queen and it was amazing. Also, Ciara and Russell Wilson showed up and Seattle, being huge fans of Russell, screamed their heads off. Plus, her opening acts, Shawn Mendes and Vance Joy, sounded amazing live.
Hands down, this has been the concert I have been to. If you ever get a chance to attend her concert, I would highly suggest going. You will dance, you will sing, and you will have the best time.
’til next time, xo!
