Taylor Swift Kicks Off ‘1989’ Tour: Does She Leave Beyoncé, Rihanna, And Lady Gaga In The Dust?

Taylor Swift launched her 1989 World Tour on Tuesday and judging from early reviews, Beyoncé, Rihanna, Lady Gaga, Katy Perry, and all the other female pop stars might have been surpassed in every way possible. E Online has some spoilers.

“The majority of the show features songs from her latest album. After all, it is called the 1989 Tour. But fans can still count on classic favorites like ‘Love Story’ and a slightly new version of ‘I Knew You Were Trouble’… Whether working flirty purple skirts, sheer sparkle jumpsuits, knee-high boots or red hot gloves, expect plenty of wardrobe changes in between songs. Don’t worry, fans. Those blond locks are here to stay!”

Billboard also favorably describes Taylor Swift’s new show.

“Taylor Swift started her 1989 Tour at Tokyo Dome in the city’s Suidobashi district on Tuesday night. The 55,000 seat cylindrical stadium was packed to the hilt, and the organizers placed light-emitting wristbands on every seat so the entire crowd illuminated and changed colors in unison. Swift opened with ‘Welcome to New York,’ using a mock NYC backdrop and featuring her retinue of all-male dancers… The elated audience was only outdone by Swift, who looked genuinely thrilled at the superb show she just pulled off.”

Yahoo News reveals Taylor Swift’s epic speech to her fans during the show.

“I just hope that you will look in the mirror and remind yourself of what you are and what you are not. You are not your mistakes. You are not damaged or muddy from your failed explorations. You are not the opinion of someone who doesn’t know you. You are a product of the lessons that you’ve learned.”

Taylor Swift’s current tour is playing to huge stadiums across the world, including multiple dates at Soldier Field in Chicago, Ford Field in Detroit, and Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia. Swift’s mega touring success is no doubt one of the reasons she was just announced as one of Time Magazine‘s 100 most influential people.

“Taylor Swift: megawatt talent, an extraordinary spirit, an impossibly charming blend of impishness, poise and radiance to spare. All of it combines to rock me back on my heels every time I see her. Both literally and figuratively, she’s a woman who writes her own songs. That makes for music that’s personal, of the moment and impossible to resist,” writes author Mariska Hargitay.

Judging by early reviews of the 1989 World Tour, Swift fans in the United States and the rest of the world have a lot to look forward to. Are you going to see Taylor Swift on her current tour? Let us know in the comments section.
