Taylor Swift Rocks Her Concert Balcony - Literally
Taylor Swift hits the stage during her Speak Now world tour on Tuesday (July 19) in Newark, New Jersey.
The 21-year-old singer had a bit of trouble during her encore performance of “Love Story.” Typically, she soars above the entire audience in a standalone “Romeo and Juliet”-style balcony structure. But yesterday, the balcony went up 200 feet in the air, abruptly stopped, and rocked from side to side.
Taylor looked terrified for a split-second, looking up at the production team to see if everything was going to be alright. She never missed a note and finished the concert like a pro even though the balcony never finished its journey. Hopefully the balcony gets fixed before tonight’s show!
FYI: Taylor had the lyrics to Gavin DeGraw‘s song “Belief” written on her left arm during the show.
“Newark!!! What a crazy, off the hook, bouncy, loud, dancy crowd. I love you, Jersey crowds. Night 1 of 4!” Tay wrote on her Twitter account.
Before the concert, Tay met up with JustJared.com‘s Jared Eng backstage (she gives the best hugs). Pictured below!
