NEWARK, NJ (Mar. 27, 2013) – The “RED” Tour: Taylor Swift featuring Special Guest Ed Sheeran & Florida-Georgia Line rolled into the Prudential Center in Newark, NJ for a night #1 of a three night stay in Newark, NJ. The sold-out crowd went crazy at the first sight of the long-legged superstar. Fans singing along all night to radio-friendly hits such as “You Belong With Me“, “I Knew You Were Trouble“, & “Love Story” was surreal as it seemed not a fan missed a word. Certified Triple platinum “We Are Never Getting Back Together” closed out the show with confetti, a Mad Hatter-esque costume, and even a mechanical arm aided crowd-surf! At the end of the day, The “RED” Tour in one word: experience.
Openers Florida-Georgia Line got the crowd’s attention early in the evening with their hit “Cruise” and their southern-rock roots got the crowd moving as the true opening act. Direct support and Swift-collaborator, Ed Sheeran, entertained the crowd with his pop-hit “The A-Team” and even made an appearance later to sing his popular duet “Everything Has Changed” later on in the evening with Taylor Swift.
