The 1989 World Tour by Taylor Swift
I didn’t think that it was possible for me to love Taylor Swift anymore, but I was proven wrong after I experienced my 1989 concert. Taylor has a beautiful way of captivating her crowd through her awe striking show.
Shawn Mendes and Vance Joy opened for Swift, and I enjoyed singing along with both of them as I anticipated Taylor’s performance. When Taylor did come out, I was blown away as she began to sing the lyrics to “Welcome to New York,” with a Broadway scenery behind her to match the vibe of the song. Each person who attended the concert was given a battery powered bracelet that was programmed to flash different colors in synchronization with the all of the songs, which made her performances even more magical.
As the night went on, I was completely mesmerized by Taylor’s vocals, choreography, and, of course, costume changes. She sang fifteen songs from the 1989 deluxe album, and even surprised the crowd by singing a few older songs paired with different genres of music, such as a rock version of “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together” (yes, you read that correctly, a rock version). Taylor ended the night with an energetic performance of “Shake it Off,” complete with fireworks, confetti, and a lot of dancing.
I think that the thing I loved the most about the concert was its atmosphere. Taylor referred to us, a crowd of 55,000 people, as her “friends,” and she thanked us multiple times for spending our Saturday night with her. Whether I was screaming out Taylor’s catchy advise that “boys only want love if it’s torture,” or contemplating my existence after a mashup of her two songs “Enchanted” and “Wildest Dreams,” I felt like I was having a dance party with my best friend Taylor and 55,000 of my closest friends, rather than attending a concert to see a female celebrity with a net worth of 200 million dollars.
Taylor managed to stun the world once again with an impeccable tour that perfectly corresponded with the sound and theme of her album. I can honestly say that the 1989 concert was a legendary concert that will go down in history. I just hope that one day I’ll be able to meet Taylor so I can thank her for one of the best nights of my life.
