Taylor Swift "Speak Now" 2011 Tour Setlist

So now the moment of truth, with Europe left behind and the two dates in Omaha and one is Des Moines leading the pack for Taylor Swift's eagerly anticipated "Speak Now" Tour.

It sounds like some kinda extravaganza. Broadway meets Glee meets country pop star. Billboard wrote this about the stage: " Lighted trees, pyrotechnics, dancers popping up from the stage, aerialists twirling above the eight-piece band, nine costume changes, multiple set changes, a floor-sweeping mime, confetti, a satellite stage and a small, gazebo-ish lift that took her over the crowd"

Sounds awful like her disappointing Fearless performance  except Fearless had better songs: it was a victory lap, covering both albums pretty thoroughly. This one… I am catching it in November at MSG, but at least the setlist is… well, take a look yourself

1. Sparks Fly

2. Mine

3. The Story of Us

4. Our Song

5.Mean

6. Mix of Back to December/You’re Not Sorry/Apologize (One Republic song)

7. Better Than Revenge

8. Speak Now

9. Mix of Fearless and I’m Yours (Jason Mraz song) on the Ukelele

10. Last Kiss

11. You Belong With Me

12. Dear John

13. Enchanted

14. Haunted

15. Long Live

Encore

16. Fifteen

17. Love Story

Let's start with the obvious, no "Never Grow Up"? Bummer. And let's go more obvious, exactly one song from the first album and FOUR songs off her humongous second album. Which means 12 songs off the newbie.

Wow, brave that. I know the album well, it isn't good enough by any stretch of the imagination to withstand that many tracks. She is playing three times more off the newbie than Fearless. I woulda gone 7 off SN, 6 off Fearless , 3 off TS and "Fairytale" just to piss off the critics.

I don't get it, why leave off a "it rains in your bedroom. everything's wrong, it rains when you're here and it rains when you're gone" and include "don't you think I was too young to be messed with"? It always surprises me when women (or girls) feign surprise when men make a move on em… I always assume it is some form of sophistication because nobody is that stupid.

No "White Horse"or "Hey Stephen" or "Tim McGraw" or "Tears On My Guitar"…  Songs 12 – 14 look deadly to me…

I've said this before but it bears repeating… do Taylor should do a club tour and build her chops. figure out what songs really work because this setlist won't tell her.
