Taylor Swift Wants Her 2013 Red Tour to Be ‘As Big as Possible’
If there’s one thing to know about Taylor Swift, it’s that she doesn’t do anything on a small scale. Like, ever. She goes big on all fronts — and her 2013 Red Tour won’t be any different. In fact, the ‘Begin Again’ singer plans to up the ante from her last tour in the live realm. And what that boils down to is that Swifties are going to be very, very happy.
“I like for it to be big — as big as possible.” Swift tells Billboard of her vision for the tour in support of her new album, ‘Red.’
So, how does she plan go big? For one, the 22-year-old superstar insists that she wants people to leave with the memory of the show forever imprinted in their minds. “If we can make a show that dazzles people more than the last tour, then I’ll have done my job in the right way,” she explains.
Swift is also considerate of the fact that her fans spend their hard-earned money on her shows, so she wants to give them their dollar’s worth — and then some. Money spent at a Taylor Swift show will be spent well.
“I just want to be able, in this economy, to make a show that for fans is definitely a guarantee that they will be entertained enough to warrant them leaving their house, spending their evening with me, parking their car, waiting in line, maybe buy a T-shirt,” Swift reveals. “I want them to be so happy that they decided to spend their time with me — I think that’s my biggest objective. And the element of surprise is still really important in a concert and showing scenes and images and visuals that are magical. I really like to take people to a different world and change things up constantly, never showing them too much of the same thing too many times in a row.”
With that approach to performing live — with entertaining fans at the forefront — the 2013 Red Tour should be quite a treat.
