Taylor Swift Tour Dates 2011-Taylor Live!
Some of you may not have seen Taylor perform live and may not know what to anticipate. I was fortunate enough to have seen Taylor play last year during her Fearless tour and I thought i would hand down a couple of impressions. Although I have seen a lot of footage and information about her Speak Now tour, I dont want to give too much away about that. You will enjoy it a lot more if you dont know all the specifics before you see her.
I should point out that im a fifty year old musician so although I am a Taylor fan, im not your typical Taylor fan.
Taylor Swift is not your normal pimped out diva. She is very much a real performer and songwriter and that feeling continues throughout her show. Her band plays very well but there is very little if any digital deception going on. You are hearing them play live, when they play. Taylors vocals were quite good, especially considering she had played about fifty shows before I saw her. The audience pretty much sings out every song, which for some songs is a bit irritating.After all, I want to hear Taylor sing her songs. Fortunately for some of the quiter songs, the crowd did quiet down and Taylors vocals were great.
Does Taylor put on a show? You bet. The sets she used for her tour encorporated castles, staircases, tree scenerys and much more. Having seen many supergroups perform, I can sincerely say that Taylors backgrounds and scenery effects are top notch.In one song (you know the one)there is a rain machine that pours down on Taylor while she sings.The rain spells out NO on the way down.By the end Taylor is totally drenched. In between songs there were a few videos to get the crowd warmed up. As if they needed warming up. Taylor got huge roars of approval throughout the show. Sometimes it seemed they may not stop. The girl is well loved.Taylor jumps around the stage, throws her hair around like wild woman, and interacts with the crowd and her band. This lady is also a hard worker.
Taylor popped up in the audience a couple times during her performance, and I hear that is also the case with the current tour also.These were my favorite parts as they were very intimate. These songs were predominantly slower songs that were just Taylor and her guitar, and really,they were great. At one point Taylor explains that her old guitar teacher told her she would never play the 12 string because her hands were too small. Then she belts out some nice chords on her 12 string to the crowds approval.At one point in the show Taylor even plays an oilcan drum duet, and once more its pretty impressive.
I would recommend seeing Taylors new tour to just about anyone.You will be seeing and hearing a legendary songwriter and performer at a concert im sure you will remember your entire life. For more information on Taylor Swift Tour Dates 2011, please visit the links below.
