Taylor gave her fans a superbly crafted set. A just about perfect two hours of pop rock with a good band and a minimum of acoustic hi-jinx. She treated her young fans with all the love and respect while, impossible to overstate this, streamlining the Speak Now aesthetics to a fine point, a study in simple design well executed and the least indulgent, most creative arena rock show anywhere

The pop singer with the powerful voice hasn’t changed much in the proceeding years, she has just gotten bigger and better and in one of the remarkable Arena shows you will ever see, she was both a bigger than life cut out character, and a personable, friendly singer, with many hit songs to choose from
Over and beyond CRJ’s first post THE SONG album the terrible Kiss, not really deserving of too much consideration , she isn’t much of a performer. With a rock backing band, she is is engaging but bland, pretty but vacant. In other words, she is the Phillip Phillips of Canada
suppose their handful of fans are on their knees crying, but truth be told no one knows who they are so no one knows what they’re missing. Hiatus means broken up by the way.. please give me a list of five band who have gone on hiatus and returned to work
Baroque pop” is an obvious claim, but his own “bel-canto art-rock” is better. How about this: imagine 1980’s band the Associates Billy Mackenzie singing Broadway tunes arranged by Burt Bucharah… ?
Bottle blonde Alex York is a cool friendly charmer on stage at the Studio at Webster Hall.He struts the stage with a mix of arrogance and diffidence and sings his catchy pure pop for now people with conviction, helped along by a pretty good guitarist.
Lady Gaga’s fans treat her like a very cool maiden Aunt, sticking up for them when their parents just don’t understand. Katy Perry’s fans treat her like a big sister, testing the adult world’s waters for them. Swift is a mix of sister, role model and best friend forever
A fantasy where her songwriting abilities are under appreciated because her fans are teenage girls. This is complete nonsense. Swift is considered, and rightly, one of the greatest songwriters of her generation. IT’S HER SINGING THAT WAS GETTING DISMISSED
It wasn’t particularly good music, but it was particularly good entertainment. Much better than Lady Gaga’s “Born This Way” tour and the little girls squealed but in some ways more maturely then they did during her dreadful set at Jingle Ball last year
I wonder how many actors they will need to play Jackson, may be Bob-Dylan-I’m-not-There style? If you look at a picture when Jackson was young, and one when he was over 40, it was certainly not the same person and if the same actor is playing him all along, he will need a lot of CGI work.
His girlfriend lives with death threats, his cars are attacked by fan, he can’t walk down the street, he can’t hang out with his friends, he can’t hang without bodyguards.the world hasn’t seen anything like this since Beatlemania
not such a hot idea
the little girls still do understand
Why am I even doing this..
Travis thank your folks for the piano lessons, and good job on the practicing cuz its fabulous.
