Fearless Tour 2010 Going Great
First off I just wanted to say that from today on a new iPhone app is available called Taylor Swift free on iTunes, which looks great! It has notifications when new music, videos, pictures, or updates appear. It has all her videos; you can download music and photos... It looks great. I personally don't have an iPhone, but if I had one, I would totally download it!
Next, I wanted to report that Taylor started the second part of her Fearless tour this weekend, and it is going great! The crowd loved her on Saturday in Tampa, Orlando, and Ft. Lauderdale/Sunrise. Those performances both sold out in one minute. As Taylor Swift Official website says, "Taylor plays seven different instruments over the course of the two-hour show," she has "three acts and eight costume changes." She is visiting "31 cities in 25 states and provinces in the US and Canada" for the next 3 months. As we already know, she also played in eight sold-out shows in Australia and Japan.
To show that fans are not the only people with a good opinion on superstar Taylor Swift, I leave you with the critics' critics (or praise, in Taylor's case =)):
“Stratospheric,” said the Tampa Tribune. “Two things that have remained the same are Swift’s undeniable charm and her bond with her audience. She’s the coolest girl who ever got her heart broken.” The St. Pete Times said, “Taylor Swiftly wows the crowd! Totally winning…audience pandemonium…star power…a prodigious talent.”
“The return of teen-pop madness,” wrote the Orlando Sentinel. “With the night's most emotional songs delivered capably in stripped-down acoustic arrangements…Swift sells the material with sincerity.” “Taylor Swift wows Orlando crowd,” praised the Orlando Metromix. “The entire concert was visually amazing…a spectacle that plays out like a two-hour story of her life – with humor, wit and stage presence well beyond her years. Swift has a genuine connection with her audiences that isn’t contrived, it’s sincere. I left admiring Taylor not only as an artist, but as a person. She sets the example of what an artist should be, both professionally and personally.”
“Taylor Swift thrills the screaming girls in Sunrise,” wrote the Miami Herald. “Musically substantive and affecting…..Swift caused pandemonium with…..earnest sweetness of the songs, charisma and star power.” “Taylor Swift wins over Bank Atlantic Center,” said the Miami New Times. “Every attendee walked away feeling like they knew her a little better…Swift kept the energy high,….the steady vocalist….never spent more than a few seconds in one place or more than a few minutes in the same gown.”
Let's just hope Taylor decides to do a South American (and by SOUTH AMERICA I also mean COLOMBIA) tour!! =)
