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.
The Final Night Of Taylor Swifts' "Speak Now" Tour At Madison Square Garden, Tuesday, November 22nd, 2011, Reviewed
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.
There is some great stuff to cover, that’s for sure, but its just a huge trend.
let’s hope it is better than her last re,ix album
Right now hes doing nothing but making his fans dizzy with the quick changes and odd choices
a minimum of dicking around
They create a party and you get great music along with it.
yo, yo, she knits sweaters yall
It ruined my day.
Kelly Rowland is doing pretty well solo and doesn’t want to play Florence Ballard to Beyonce’s Diana.
Let the circus begin
Katy lacks presence, she is no Madonna, no Britney, certainly no Lady Gaga.
The Devil rode down to Nashville
She is playing three times more off the newbie than Fearless.
lead singer Maja Ivarsson looks just like a meth addict
And the album doesn’t come out till tuesday…
Taylor Swift. This is a music site and this is about Taylor Swift doing a benefit performance. First though, Tornados have been leveling the South, leaving hundreds of dead in its wake and destroying much of Tuscaloosa. this is the devastating work of nature in full force, though there are those who claim this…
He is now called a singer, a performer and a humanitarian, and in some circles, a total dirt bag.
something oddly inevitable about the handsome lad’s voice changing, sprouting pubes, catching tude
A rewritten pop bpm fuckover.
as the editor of a rock website I kinda feel obliged to have seen the most popular tour of all time.
if only they could produce some interesting music.
Upon completion of the competition YOUR top 10 idols hit the road to perform live for you, their “fans”.
a dent in the armor?
they need to come back but stay longer
should be playing stadiums
it could easily be my summer soundtrack
morphed into a disaster
hmmmm..so much for Bamboozle….
unmemorable songs with a lot of vocal modulation
What unsufferable egotist. She’s sold a coupla million albums, she hasn’t invented penecillin. Created -pah!
is it a joke?
She is easy to look at, and a pretty singer, but not much more
the potential to be of the greatest songwriters of her generation, and f you are serious about modern popular music, you must see her
This is a consumation devoutly to be wished for
a glimpse of really old NeverShoutNever!
Gaga is once again copycatting Madonna, or the fact that Christian and Catholic leagues are still offended by a music video in 2011.
