Ok, Where do I start to review this show? Perhaps I wont do a review but just give some observations. At this stage of my life I'm better at keeping lawns green and health insurance paid for than being able to add commentary to the things that someone like Taylor mean to the music industry and more important than that to the masses of young girls who adore her.
I have never been to a show like that. (guys over 35 stay with me here) Its a wild ride, mix of Broadway, Vegas, and the stage presence of Hollywood's best leading lady. Yet somehow she knows exactly how to talk to the girls and they believe her. They stare, cry, and somehow feel connected. I watched her pause and work the stage in a manner that would make Garth blush.
I have seen the best of the best, From the Stones to Springsteen, all of the big ones in county and rock. No one has ever put the thoughts of this kind of production on stage. That's because Taylors mind works like no other. She won't stop until every magazine cover has been graced, every Stadiums been played and every hearts been dated and subsequently broke! Her show production is simply second to none.
Its unique paradigm, A mix of brilliance and lunacy all mixed into one. I think she's does what she's does because its her world. And in her world there is nothing, NOTHING, that cant be done. She's young Knows no bounds and other than a few failed attempts at having a boyfriend has had a pretty darned good life. Mix the dreams of a young girl with a limitless budget and a vision like no other and you have this wildly cool show!
Taylor, treats every one like they are gold. She connects with young girls and ladies and they feel like they have a best friend. That's a hard thing to do.
I'm drinking the Kool-Aid, I know..... I know..... But if you see what I have in this business you understand that there's never been any thing like her.
Do I think I was a country music show? No I don't. It was as far from country music show as Justin Moore is to being a pop star. But you cant deny Taylors contribution to the genre.
Every man should have a daughter, I think that was my connection, To see her have a blast is priceless. She makes little girls feel invincible and That's a great thing! I wont lie I don't have a single Taylor song on my I-pod. But I will buy them over and over for my kids because they love her, and I love that!
A lot of people worked hard to get their Taylor Tickets, and Moms and Dads took a night to sit in a parking lot Solider field to wait till it was over. Bottom line is it was money well spent.
