Dallas loves Taylor Swift
If you were wondering what the loud screams coming from downtown Dallas were last night well there’s no reason to worry. It was just a sold out American Airlines Center showing their love for country/pop singer Taylor Swift. This was the twenty year old’s first major headlining tour and if she had any worries about how she would do – judging from the crowd last night – she’ll do just fine.
Starting off the night with her hit “You Belong With Me” dressed in a marching band uniform, she had the crowd – consisting of a surprising mix of young girls, teenage girls and boys, and parents that knew all the words as well – singing along and gave us an idea of what we she had in store for us when her dancers ripped off the uniform to reveal a short, sparkling dress beneath. She continued with other hits “Teardrops On My Guitar” and the namesake of the tour, “Fearless”.
The sets were quite simply amazing. A huge screen along the back and the raised platforms covered in screens as well meant that they were able to really adapt the setting to the song. By far the most impressive was during “Love Story” where they literally recreated a medieval castle and Taylor and her dancers were in full costume to go with it, only to have Taylors ballgown snatched away to reveal a beautiful white flowing gown beneath. And one can’t forget the rain of heart shapped confetti that seemed to fill the entire arena to the delight of the fans. The two hour show ended with a two song encore, with an amazingly impressive rain of water onto the stage, and onto Taylor, for the last song, “Should’ve Said No” in which the words ‘No’ and ‘Go” and various others where seen in the water as it spilled down.
