Taylor Swift Launches ‘Speak Now’ Tour in Singapore
Thousands of adoring fans waited in line 24 hours before the sold-out show even started. Swift went on to entertain the 12,000 fans packed the venue and who were said to be on their feet the entire night.
The day before the big kick-off, the country star took to her Twitter page to keep fans updated on her progress: “About to head to the arena. Our first show tonight in Singapore! So stoked. So stoked. So stoked.”
Wednesday evening, Swift performed on two different stages and played 90 minutes of hits from her triple platinum ‘Speak Now’ album as well as older fan favorites. In addition to playing her guitar, the talented 21-year-old also brought out a ukulele and spent some time at the piano.
Perhaps taking a cue from Reba McEntire, Swift underwent several costume changes during the concert. After her final encore, one of the first things the ‘Back To December’ singer did was hop back on Twitter; “THAT SHOW RULED!! Thank you Singapore. My band and I love you. And your dancing and jumping and singing and screaming! Good times.”
Swift’s next stop is Friday night in Seoul, South Korea. Before she comes back to the U.S., the young star is scheduled to play 90 shows in 19 countries including London, Dublin, Paris and Milan.
Taylor Swift’s North American ‘Speak Now’ tour kicks off with two shows in Los Angeles at the Staples Center, April 23 and April 24. For a complete listing of all of Swift’s tour dates, please head here.
