Sunday was such an incredible night. I had the extreme pleasure of taking my favorite little girl to her very first concert and what a show it was with Taylor Swift and her 1989 World Tour. Taylor came out rocking with Welcome to New York, which is one of my top jams on her 1989 album.
In the picture above you can see all the blue lights and your first thought may be that those are just cell phones. You would be incorrect. Every guest received a bracelet that was in sync with the concert which just added to the whole experience.
This show was full of amazing dance numbers and an incredible stage but one of the best parts was definitely when Taylor Swift grabbed her guitar and started playing You Belong With Me. It made me extremely nostalgic and realize I have been a Swift fan for ten years now. I remember listening to her albums in high school and have really grown with her music. And it is mildly humorous that I have listened to her music longer than the kid I brought has been alive.
One thing that I have always respected about Taylor is her love for her fans and she went above and beyond to just stop and talk to the audience. She really emphasized the uniqueness and strength in us all and to never let anyone make you feel inferior. This is a message that truly resonates with me because, just like everyone else, I have my days of doubts and self-confliction. And maybe it’s silly but I find inspiration in hearing this message from someone I have admired for most of my life.
Let me get off my soapbox here. Haha. If you have the opportunity to see Taylor Swift live, do it! This is the second time I have seen her perform and she always puts on an incredible show. She focused heavily on her 1989 album but brought a balance of some of her older fan favorites.
Another memorable piece was her revamping of Love Story. This song has always been one I can’t resist singing along to and with the heavier electronic beats, it was unbelievable. I still love the original but her new rendition was an excellent addition to this concert.
I apologize for the small pictures now but Taylor Swift’s encore was rocking! Her stage actually raised up and made full 360 degree turns. She only played one song but what a great song to conclude her show with the chart-topping, Shake It Off. I had the absolute best time and made memories I will never forget. I look forward to the next time Taylor Swift comes through Denver.
