The Red Concert

Something big happened yesterday, guys. I went to my first concert and saw one of my favourite artists in concert! It was such an amazing experience and I'm so grateful I was able to go. Taylor put on a wonderful show, not stopping for two straight hours! The vocals were great and all the artistic touches really made the concert memorable. And we had THREE opening acts!

The first opening act was Joel Crouse, whom I had never heard before but is superbly good. (Yesterday was his birthday so happy birthday, Joel!) I arrived a bit later and missed his first few performances but luckily, caught his amazing rendition of Someone Like You.

Then came Austin Mahone who was the second opening act. Well, all I can say is that I'm certainly no Mahomie. His dancing skills were quite impressive though!

And then there was Ed. Amazing Ed who came out and rocked the audience with his song, Give Me Love. He did a brilliant cover of Feeling Good which gave me chills and a great performance of You Need Me, I Don't Need You, Lego House, and The A Team. This is a picture I took from my seat way up in the back. This was actually one of my better pictures.

Once Ed had finished his tiny performance, there was a super long break and it took us well into the third half hour of the concert. But finally Taylor came out with her song, State of Grace (which is like one of my favourites.)

Here was the set list for her performance:

1. State of Grace
2. Holy Ground
3. Red
4. You Belong With Me
5. The Lucky One
6. Mean
7. Stay Stay Stay/Ho Hey
8. 22
9. Tim McGraw
10. Everything Has Changed
11. Begin Again
12. Sparks Fly
13. I Knew You Were Trouble
14. All Too Well
15. Love Story
16. Treacherous
17. We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together

In between her costume changes, there were amazing acts put on by her dancers and musicians. I clearly remember a zooming redhead violinist, jamming on stage before IKYWT and ballet dancers climbing out of a chest before Love Story. There were also flying drummers and some cool fireworks! 

In short, the performance was amazing! Everything was magnificent (including her vocals) and it was so much fun. Taylor is a wonderful performer and if you get the opportunity to see her, I highly suggest you take it! :)

    AHHHH, I AM SO JEALOUS! It has always been my dream to go to a Taylor Swift concert, since I've been a fan of her since I was eleven or twelve. Especially now that Ed Sheeran is touring with her... I want to go so badly!

    I'm glad you got the opportunity to go and that you had fun. :D
