Taylor Swift Kicks Off RED Tour In Omaha To Sold-Out Crowd


Taylor Swift has been busy preparing for her RED Tour for months, and last night (March 13) in Omaha, Nebraska, she welcomed fans into her world.

“Well, good evening. You see this is the part I’ve been really looking forward to for a very long time because this is the part where I say to you, Omaha, Nebraska, welcome to the very first night of the RED Tour,” Swift said to the crowd as she jumped up and down.

The more than 13,800 fans at the CenturyLink Center took a liking to her show, a two-hour extravaganza that included multi-level stages, elaborate costumes, dancers, and even aerialists. The local critics agreed.

“For the first four songs of Swift’s kickoff concert of The Red Tour, screams, whistles and cheers melded with her powerful backup band to create a relentless cacophony,” a reviewer at The Omaha World Herald reported.

She performed her latest single “22″ to her “adoring crowd,” and the reviewer likened Swift to a circus ringleader.

“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.”

Ed Sheeran and Brett Eldredge opened the show. Swift continues the party for a second time tonight (March 14) in Nebraska. The North American portion of her 2013 RED Tour includes 66 shows in 47 cities spanning six months.
