Taylor Swift is, quite simply, a global superstar and songwriter of her generation. Taylor is a ten-time Grammy winner, a singer, songwriter, musician and producer. She is the first female solo artist to win the music industry’s highest honor, the Grammy Award for Album of the Year - twice!

Taylor is Billboard’s first-ever Woman of the Decade recipient along with being the youngest-ever Woman of the Year honoree and the only artist to have been awarded this nod twice. Taylor is the American Music Awards’ Artist of the Decade, the only artist in history to have four consecutive albums sell over one million copies in their week of release (Speak Now, RED, 1989 and reputation) and the only female artist to have six albums each sell at least 500,000 copies in a single week (Fearless, Speak Now, RED, 1989, reputation and Lover). She is a Brit and Emmy Award winner too.
Surprise songs:
"Sad Beautiful Tragic (Taylor's Version)"

Taylor Swift is a household name whose insanely catchy yet deeply personal self-penned songs transcend musical genres. Music critic Jody Rosen once called Taylor “a songwriting savant with an intuitive gift for verse-chorus-bridge architecture” in Rolling Stone. Her songs are glimpses into her diary. The thread that connects her to audiences worldwide but it’s the intangibles that elevate Swift into the stratosphere of our pop culture planet, allowing the singer-songwriter to orbit in a more rarified air.

It’s her fight for artist’s rights and ownership of their work. It’s taking a stand for LGBTQ rights and equality. It’s publicly calling out President Trump for “stoking the fires of white supremacy and racism your entire presidency.” In addition to her activism, it’s her numerous large-scale charitable contributions to organizations such as the World Health Organizations’ COVID-19 Response Fund, NAACP Legal Defense Fund and direct help to tornado, flood and hurricane victims in Tennessee, Louisiana, Iowa and Houston just to name a few.

However, it’s in the small gestures – the notes of compassion she posts on her fan’s Instagram photos, the genuine hugs she distributes without discretion – where Taylor proves time and time again that multi-platinum selling, record-setting success has not changed her inherent nature. She is honest and powerfully empathetic; a loyal friend, fierce protector of hearts; and one of the world’s greatest ambassadors for the power of just being yourself.
Taylor was amazing! I’ve been to a lot of concerts in my life and this was hands down the best concert I’ve ever seen! Taylor was on fire the whole night. The stage was incredible! She was go go go nonstop. It was so fun to be there with my daughter who has loved Taylor since she was tiny. We had the best time together and would go again in a heartbeat. This concert was worth every penny!

Best night of my life! Taylor was an amazing performer! The show was everything I could have ever imagined! Everything from the venue to the stage to the dancers, audio, visuals, and of course Taylor was just perfect! The show went for about 3 1/2 hours and somehow she had enough energy to go all in the entire night. Her voice and songs were beautiful and you could just tell she really cared about her fans and was endlessly grateful. I love Taylor so much and this was a dream come true!

Best concert I’ve ever been to. My second time seeing Taylor and it was even better than the last!

Taylor is so awesome, she is such a great role model. You can tell she really does care about her fans and the staff working at the concerts. I loved this concert in particular because not only did Taylor play Reputation and 1989 songs, she also threw in a couple of old ones. And not only that, she played the guitar and piano. She’s so talented.

Stunning! Taylor asked if I was ready for it and honestly I don’t think I was! She, the dancers, the band, all of them slayed that stage and it was an incredible night.

Absolutely fantastic! Taylor really played to her fans. She featured fan favorites and focused less on showcasing her mainstream music to new fans. Plus, the venue was amazing.
