Taylor Swift Eras Tour

If you love Taylor Swift, you’ll love this.

Taylor Swift’s Eras Tour 

Many people know the name Taylor Swift. One of the reasons that she is a huge hit right now is due to her concerts AKA her Eras tour. Her Eras tour is where she performs many nights for a little over 2 hours. Many of her fans, also known as “Swifties” dress up very bright and colorful and some even make their bracelets and trade them among her other fans. Taylor performs many songs that her fans go nuts over! Another reason why Taylor is very well known right now is because after her Eras tour was close to over, she shocked the whole world by donating to the food line during her Seattle “Eras tour” performance in July. People say that now that Taylor has donated they will be able to provide hundreds of thousands of pounds of fresh produce to families in Western Washington. Her fans take pride and satisfaction in her music because people say her songs impact them in ways they can’t explain. In 2016, Swift donated $1 million to flood relief efforts in Louisiana after 20,000 residents were displaced and 13 people died, CNN reported. Swift donated $50,000 to New York City public schools in 2015, after she pledged to donate the proceeds from her single “Welcome to New York” to the city’s education department. I have some great news for you Swifties. Taylor Swift is extending her Eras tour to 2024! She announced that she is adding 15 new dates in North America next year.

Taylor’s songs are based on many of her past relationships and troubles, which is why many of her fans relate and like her music due to the relations and comparisons in her music to their own life. Some other news that is spreading over social media is one of her security guards was fired after not following the rules of his job and disrespecting Taylor as well. This security guard was told that he couldn’t record or do any funny business while working, but instead, he disobeyed all those rules. First, they started to sing along to Taylor’s songs. Then he decided to pass notes to fans in his reach to record him singing with Taylor in the background. Later, the video surfaced on higher platforms, and many people saw this video, including the people he worked with. They then fired the “security guard” due to him being inappropriate during the concert and not obeying their rules.

 

Review of her concert

Taylor Swift’s Eras tour is beaming with great reviews. She is making all of America go crazy. Many people say It’ss the hottest tour of the decade.”. With more than 40 songs, the concert is an ultimate mashup of all her best hits. The Eras tour is a vast Swiftmania with outfits inspired by different albums. She had many fetching looks like her old Hollywood fashion, Stevy witch witchcraft, and cheeky cabaret. By the beginning of the show, as she walked out, the crowd went crazy. When she sang her very first note everybody in the crowd got goosebumps. Each of her studios had two to seven songs that all had visual elements. Her straightforward, bright vocals lost some nuance in the windy air, assuming you could hear them over the oft-deafening screams from the crowd. With her world record-breaking crowd, she surprises herself each time with how loud she pumps them up.  At the end of the nearly three-hour-long show, she thanked the crowd showing fans that even though she may be the biggest musician on the planet, Taylor never forgets her fan base and those that have helped build her career. All in all, The show is a massive spectacle that runs through hit album after hit album, with plenty of charm and charisma from Swift that certainly solidifies herself as an absolute titan in the music industry.   

 

Interview and my peers went around the school to ask people if they supported or listened to any of Taylor Swift’s songs. We first asked a 6th-grade class and it turns out many of the sixth graders liked Taylor Swift. Four out of five 6th graders like Taylor Swift. We proceeded to ask all grade levels. 7th graders all said no and that they rather listen to Drakee or KanyeWestt. We then asked two 8th-grade classes who said that they liked Taylor Swift, and the others said that they listened to Tyler the Creator, Travis Scott, and Playboi Carti. Overall, from the data that we recorded, we realized that the younger age group likes Taylor Swift more than any older kids. We then went on to ask one of the biggest swifties on our campus. This is Mr.Brown. Mr. Brown loves Taylor Swift and he supported his answer by referring to her when she was only 15 years old and leaving the music industry because she didn’t like the music that she was being signed to so she went on to make her music and look where she is now. Mr. Brown gave very good reasoning as to why he is a swiftie and why someone like Taylor Swift is such big news right now. To show that Mr. Brown truly does support Taylor, look at the image below.

After you’ve reviewed all the data and information about Taylor Swift, I have a question for you. Are you a swiftie?
