Taylor Swift kicked off her highly-anticipated RED Tour with a sold out show in Omaha, Nebraska, playing to a crowd of more than 13,800 fans. Taylor was joined by special guests Ed Sheeran and Brett Eldredge. The North American leg of the RED Tour will play 66 shows, including 13 stadium stops, in 47 cities in 29 states and 3 provinces over 6 months.
Taylor’s RED Tour features two multi-level stages, elaborate costumes, dancers, aerialists and changing sets. Taylor shows off her instrumental skills, playing electric guitar, banjo, piano and acoustic guitar. She changes costumes 10 times throughout the show. Her set features several songs from her RED album, including her duet “Everything Has Changed” with Ed Sheeran, and fan favorites.
The Omaha World-Herald called the show a “super spectacle” that “turned the arena into a massive dance party,” and praised Taylor’s intimate connection to her fans. “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.”
