If there’s one thing Taylor Swift loves more than being onstage, it’s being onstage with surprise guests. The songstress recapped her last Red Tour shows in the U.S. with an in-depth video almost nine minutes long, featuring Luke Bryan, Rascal Flatts, Hunter Hayes and Ed Sheeran.
The final shows took place at Bridgestone Arena in Nashville; three sold-out nights and thousands upon thousands of happy and excited fans.
The video highlights Bryan, whose crowds usually hold a bit of a different demographic than Swift’s, but he loved every minute of it. “It was a blast, it was really, really amazing to be up there,” he reveals, adding that he needed to get some of the glow-in-the-dark paraphernalia that Swift’s fans wave in the air for his own tour. He adds sweetly, “Thanks from the bottom of my heart for letting me be a part of it.”
Longtime fans of Swift know that she replaced country rocker Eric Church on Flatts’ Me and My Gang Tour in 2006, when she was just starting out. So, who better than Jay DeMarcus to reminisce about her climb to the top? “It’s been amazing to watch her grow over the past years,” he says. Together at the show, they sang ‘What Hurts the Most,’ much to the fans’ delight.
Swifties are often also Hayniacs, so when Hayes was introduced, the crowd went a little bit ‘crazy.’ The young star matched Swift’s energy with incredible vocals and a tremendous stage presence during ‘I Want Crazy.’ “It was about as crazy as it gets. I’m pretty stoked I was here on the last night,” the 22-year-old country singer remembers.
Last but not least, the video gives fans a backstage look at Sheeran, who surprised the superstar during her final ‘We Are Never Getting Back Together’ performance dressed comically in a clown costume. The shock on her face when she saw the ‘Lego House’ hitmaker is pretty epic in itself. “Ladies and gentlemen, we have an imposter onstage,” she announced. “Welcome to the stage, Ed Sheeran!”
As she gears up for her Red Tour international trek, Swift should go in proud of all the special guests she squeezed into her amazing tour, ranging from Jennifer Lopez to Tegan and Sara.
