Alright…A and I traveled to Detroit last Saturday night for the most epic moment of many lives of tiny children and lovestruck, romantic young women- the Taylor Swift concert.
I scored some amazing tickets from a generous person and on Saturday night A and I traveled to the US of A. The journey down was uneventful. However I did learn that Michigan drivers were insane and super fast (but not too fast that we couldn’t read their creepy bumper stickers).
We arrived on Brush Street to an incredible amount of traffic. It was packed! It didn’t help that Ford Field (where the concert took place) was across the street from Comerica Park (where there was a Tigers game happening). It was quite the scene, tailgaters mixed with cowgirls.
We arrived at Ford Field and went in after being patted down (at a TAYLOR SWIFT concert…please there were thousands of tweens, no pot smokers here…). We walked around the stadium and looked at the spectacle of the event before us. There were 4 year olds, 12 years, teens, young adults, moms, dads, and grandmas. If nothing else Taylor has a large audience.
She had three opening acts. Three. Quite the groups…
– Randy Montana
– Frankie Ballard
– Need to Breathe
So I can’t really sum up what the massive concert was like, take a look at these videos that I took…
However…I would like to make a plea to Taylor. I get the “humble” act. Truly. But don’t you think you’re over playing just a bit? Just a tiny bit? Sigh.
