Playing the first of her two ‘Red Tour’ shows here in Singapore, Country-pop princess Taylor Swift left 8000 enthralled fans at the Singapore Indoor Stadium with a night they will remember forever.
Dressed in a collared white top tucked into a pair of black high-waist shorts, the 24 year old songstress ushered in the night with an enchanting performance of 'State of Grace', an indisputable stand out track off her latest record –‘Red’.
Despite melting in the blistering Singapore heat, Taylor kept her energy high throughout the 13 piece set - which included hot favourites like '22', ‘You Belong With Me’ and "I Knew You Were Trouble', proving not only her competence as a singer, but as a performer. Fans were electrified by the seven-time Grammy award winning singer's superb guitar solos, brilliant theatrics, and her engulfing stage presence. A great sense of nostalgia filled the stadium air as Taylor Swift smothered the audience with classics like ‘Teardrops On My Guitar’, ‘Love Story” and ‘Sparks Fly’.
Finishing up the 90-minute concert with the upbeat number - ‘We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together’, Taylor took her final bow as her loyal following of ‘Swifties’ cheered her on.
Taylor Swift is arguably one of the most versatile musicians today. With her rare ability to draw people in from all walks of life, she remains a stand out act amongst her fellow musical comrades. She is The Beatles, The Rolling Stones and the Elvis of modern day pop culture.
Armed with her signature red microphone, one can only imagine what lies in store for this charming young lady – a consummate master of her trade.

Country-pop princess Taylor Swift has announced a second date (9th June 2014) for the Singapore leg of her Asian tour. All this comes after the unfortunate cancellation of her anticipated show in Bangkok.
The seven time grammy winning singer/songwriter last performed in Singapore in 2011 at the Singapore Indoor Stadium.
Following the major success of her fourth studio album 'Red', country superstar Taylor Swift has spent the last year touring across the globe on her 'Red World Tour'. Taylor has already completed three quarters of her tour starting with North America and slowly moving on to Oceania and Europe but come June 12, the songstress will be making her way to the sunny island of Singapore for the final leg of her tour.
We can't wait! Let's hope this concert is as good as or even better than when Taylor performed here in February 2011. Tickets went on sale early last month and has since been sold out.
Date: June 12 2014
Venue: Singapore Indoor Stadium
Time: TBA (To Be Announced)
