Taylor Swift Probably Won’t Play The ‘Lover’ Tour In StadiumsAugust 28, 2019
Taylor Swift wants to switch things up.
It’s an incredible career milestone when you can sell-out stadiums, but where does a star goes from there? Swift has done it all, and now she wants to give fans the best experience possibly, but doing so in a way that feels inspired.
Swift, who recently released her seventh studio album, Lover, which is on track to debut at No. 1, says she hasn’t had a second to focus on an upcoming tour, but confirmed one will eventually happen. It most likely won’t be a stadium show – those need to be booked a year in advance.
Speaking with Ryan Seacrest, Swift said she actively planned the Reputation stadium tour, but she’s been so busy with the Lover rollout that there hasn’t even been a single tour meeting.
“I was so full-on planning this album release and directing the videos and putting all these different clues in these videos and trying to make this album release experience the most fun one for my fans, that I didn’t wanna plan what we’re gonna do in terms of live and I don’t want to do the same thing every time because I don’t want my life to feel like I’m on a treadmill,” she told Seacrest.
“Stadiums are fun,” she began. “Stadiums are amazing — I love stadiums, I just don’t know if we’re going to do the same thing as we did last time.”
Lover doesn’t pack as much of a punch as Reputation did. Swift wants the upcoming live shows to reflect the warmth of the new record.
“My goal for whatever live setting that we decide to do things in, is gonna be to try to make it feel smaller like a living room.”
Sidenote: “Afterglow” and “Cruel Summer” will sound amazing live.
