“We’re going to spend our last shows in Nashville,” Taylor said. “On the Speak Now Tour, the last show was in New York. [For this tour], I realized that this is my hometown and one of the craziest crowds we play for.”
Scott Borchetta, the CEO of Big Machine Records, Taylor’s label, led an industry toast to Taylor for her recent accomplishments. “She’s about taking chances. She is fearless,” noted the label head.
Taylor’s show itself proved an entertaining spectacle of music, colorful wardrobes and innovative staging. She promised that a special guest would join her on each of the Nashville shows and she did not disappoint on her opening evening. Luke Bryan took the stage to a crescendo of loud applause and performed a duet with Taylor on his hit “I Don’t Want This Night to End.”
Attendees at the show likely felt the same way, but the evening nonetheless had to come to a close. Taylor wrapped it in an explosive finale, sporting a ringmaster costume and leading a group singalong on “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together,” followed by a dazzling shower of confetti.
