Watch Taylor Swift’s ‘Live From New York City’ Performance
Taylor Swift may not be kicking off her official Red Tour until next March, but you can get a first glimpse of the ‘Begin Again’ singer’s live show months ahead of time. ‘Taylor Swift Live From New York,’ a near 40-minute concert set, is available for your viewing pleasure now.
Filmed last month at the historic Ed Sullivan Theatre following her appearance on the ‘Late Show With David Letterman,’ Taylor Swift’s ‘Live From New York’ filmed concert includes a performance ‘We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together,’ the singer’s first Billboard Hot 100 single, as well as the fan-favorites ‘You Belong With Me’ and ‘Love Story.’
The clip also features one of the very first live viral performances of ‘Red,’ the title track from Swift’s already platinum-selling fourth studio album.
“What I hope that people take away from this record is songs to play for every part of their life,” Swift tells Taste of Country of her latest album. “When they’re getting ready in the morning, or when they’re crying over a breakup, or when they’re alone in the bathtub… or when they’re with their friends and they say, ‘Listen to this line! This is exactly what I’m going through.’”
“I want these songs to fit into people’s lives in all the different ways that they need music,” adds the singer.
Swift’s next major performance is scheduled for Nov. 18, when she is expected to take the stage at the 2012 American Music Awards. The country music superstar will return to New York City in December to perform in Times Square on New Year’s Eve, just before hitting the road for her 2013 headlining tour.
