Taylor Swift Paints the O2 Red

On her fourth night of sold-out shows at London’s O2 Arena, Taylor Swift amazes her dedicated fans with show-stopping performances of her famously-loved tracks.

Boy-band, The Vamps, warmed up fans with their catchy tunes but there is a clear resemblance to teen-heartthrobs, One Direction. The look, style and sound of The Vamps may not be new to the music industry but Swift’s fans went crazy for the boys. Maybe that had something to do with the largely female audience!

Taylor Swift took to the stage for just under two hours and definitely gave the audience their money’s worth. It was a full-packed show with numerous costume changes, energetic dance numbers and a vast amount of the colour red.

‘The Red Tour’ has now been on the road for eleven months since March 2013. Taylor Swift now brings the tour to the UK for five o2 Arena dates. The last show is tonight and is bound to leave London with a bang.

Swift sang a collection of songs from her most recent album ‘Red’. She had the crowd dancing with her upbeat numbers such as ‘I Knew You Were Trouble’ and ‘We Are Never Getting Back Together’. She also had the crowd close to tears with her slower songs as she sang ‘All Too Well’ and ‘Treacherous’.

The songwriter also took the audience back in time with songs off her older albums. ‘Fearless’ and ‘Love Story’ pleased the crowd as they reminisced back a few years. Swift also sang ‘Sparks Fly’ and ‘Mean’ from her previous album, ‘Speak Now’, which caused many screams of excitement.

Taylor Swift seems to always have a surprise in her pocket and last night’s surprise came in the form of singing-superstar, Emeli Sandé. The duo sang Sandé’s hit ‘Next to Me’ and amazed everyone with truly remarkable vocals. The pair teamed up after meeting at last year’s BRIT Awards.

The show was full of tricks with a violinist, circus themed dancers and Taylor mechanically-moving in several directions all over the arena. She certainly got as close as she could to each of her fans.

Swift left the arena and her fans covered in confetti after singing her pop-hit ‘We Are Never Getting Back Together’ in a glittery fashion.

Taylor Swift can certainly put on an entertaining performance where her fans are her main purpose. She wants them to get their money’s worth and have an incredible night.
