The darling of country music performed a knock out show in Jakarta, Indonesia last week.
Picture a slumber party with some of your girlfriends. Now, picture the same thing with 8,000 other people in attendance and the party hosted by one of the hottest singers today, Taylor Swift.
That was exactly the scene at Mata Elang International Stadium in Jakarta last week, at Swift’s maiden concert in the Indonesian capital. Jakarta was one of Swift’s seven Asian dates for her critically-acclaimed The Red Tour.
Days leading to the concert, there were concerns about the over-issuing of tickets to the show and true enough at the arena on the day itself, there were seats that were double-booked.
But all the jostling and arguing was put aside the minute Swift’s silhouette appeared on a large red curtain at 8.30pm when the singer launched into her first number, State Of Grace.
