Taylor Swift’s Elaborate “Red” Tour Opens

Elaborate multi-level stages. Costumes. Dancers. Aerialists. Sweeping set changes.

It’s all part of Taylor Swift’s highly-anticipated “The RED Tour,” which opened recently to a sold-out crowd of 13,800 in Omaha, Neb.

Swift, who will perform at LP Field at the 2013 CMA Music Festival, will tour to 47 cities over the next six months and play a total of 66 shows.

Her set features songs from her record-breaking RED album, including a duet with Ed Sheeran (“Everything Has Changed”), plus new takes on fan favorites. Country star Brett Eldredge is also opening on the tour.

Below are videos from the recent Omaha performance, including a guitar solo from “Red” and a stripped-down version of “Sparks Fly.” Plus, Swift explains what fans should expect on tour.
