Taylor Swift hit-and-run located in Swansea

Taylor Swift has stayed true to its name, the reproduction of a short, but impeccable, along with the BBC Big weekend in Swansea.

Actually a stripped-back supercut of his current world tour, the six-song performance largely focused on the star 2017 album Reputation.

He opened with his fists goth-pop are Ready For this, before running through songs such as Beautiful and Delicate.

The fans were forced to wait until the end to hear the classics Blank Space and Shake It Off – and then it was all over.

But if the 26,000 spectators who had crammed into Swansea Singleton Park felt short-changed not to show, shimmying along with Swift and her tight pierced dancers.

“You’re not the only one to sing but you are shouting… which is the best,” said Taylor, as he made the point of the crowd.

“That kind of took my breath away a bit when I came here.”

The star has also worked in two plugs for his UK tour dates, live on BBC radio and TV.

But if the set has been ruthless in its efficiency, however, was a masterpiece of pop – Swift-effort voice and form-launch of the choreography for his adorable between-song banter.

“Oh, wait, this is the wrong key!” she laughed as she fumbled the beginning of the Delicate, sliding head, the handle of his guitar to find the right note.

“She has been fantastic. She is amazing. She is unique,” said Lauren, a Swansea resident who had come especially to see the us star.

“You don’t often see Taylor Swift in Swansea, we try to be honest.”

“It was shorter than I thought it would be,” added Chantelle from Miskin, Rhondda Cynon Taff.

“I was expecting a little more of Swifty, but she looked good.”

Charis Lee, from Abergavenny, said: “I would have liked to hear some of the old stuff – but she was incredible.”

Swift will be followed on the stage by Sunday, the title of the act Florence + The Machine.

The first part of the day, and Camila Cabello – who supports Swift in her current world tour, he gave a spectacular performance on the Swansea main stage, playing his own hits Havana, and is Never The Same set of fragments to Prince’s Purple Rain and can’t Help Falling In Love.

The 21-year-old pin-sharp choreography and exuberant charisma made her a day of stand-out artists – a feat that was even more impressive, that he was fighting against the heat, the jet-lag, in a catsuit black.

“Why did I do that?” she laughed, as she spoke to BBC News after the show.

“It was so hot there, I thought I was going to pass out at a certain point I was like, ‘I’m going to give it all to Swansea. I will have to take me out of here!'”

The singer, who arrived in Wales on Saturday night after a concert, Swift the world tour in Denver, said he had been impressed by his first encounter with the country.

“I was at Cardiff last night and we were walking outside. It was like 11 in the evening, and there was a lady who was… drunk. She was wasted.

“She was moving closer and closer to this guy [who was] to play the guitar. And she was like, ‘Play Havana!” and started singing the chorus.

“I pulled out my phone to record, and she just stumbled away!”

Other artists in Swansea on Sunday, including Rita Ora, who opened the stage with a group of his own success, and a tribute to dance star Avicii, who died last month.

The main stage was kicked from Welsh rockers Stereophonics – who are not accustomed to an early morning slot.
