Taylor Swift is just six shows into The RED Tour, and the show is already impressing critics and electrifying capacity crowds at every stop. Over the course of the tour’s first 6 arena dates, the seven-time GRAMMY winner has played to more than 80,000 fans and earned rave reviews.
“The pop-country super-duper-mega-star can do no wrong on stage, with mic in hand, strumming guitars or tickling ivories, ducking in and out of different costumes, while being screamed at by 14,000 people.”--The Charlotte Observer
“With every production, Swift elevates her game, and The RED Tour is no exception. She is a gifted entertainer -- equally appealing when she's strumming solo acoustic guitar or frolicking with jesters and man-sized bunnies. When it comes to connecting with an audience, Swift is a pro.” – CMT.com
“A crowd-pleasing affair….leading the charge for splashy spectacles. Everything Swift’s fans expected from a Taylor Swift extravaganza.”– St. Louis Post-Dispatch
The “super spectacle…turned the arena into a massive dance party. The audience told her how much they related to the songs: They started singing along immediately. For Swift, now is the time to celebrate her ability to sing in the center ring of her own circus. If she keeps writing so skillfully about her feelings, she'll still be around when the red fires of youth fade to quieter shades.”-- Omaha World-Herald
“Elaborate, more mature….almost too much to absorb in one sitting. The obvious financial investment Swift makes in her show is impressive. From stages swarmed with performers to elaborate sets, she cuts no corners.” – Country Aircheck
