Taylor Swift will play her very first concert in Denmark at Roskilde Festival 2020. She is seldom in this part of the world, so if you love pop music of the first water, you must not miss out on this American star!
Since the self-titled debut album saw the light of day in 2006 (she was just 17 years old!) and still to this day – seven albums and 49 singles into her career – Taylor Swift's star is still in ascendance. The Tennessee-born artist effortlessly did a crossover from country territory to become a world-dominating pop star.
The numbers will make you dizzy if you are to sum up her career in sales figures and awards. She has sold over 50 million records and 150 million singles (streaming numbers not included), and she has won 10 Grammys – not to mention a wealth of Guinness World Records (look here).
Taylor Swift is a singing sensation and there is a reason why she is included on Rolling Stone’s list of the 100 greatest songwriters of all time.
She knows how to pull (and pluck) the strings.
And she quickly showed that she manages to capture the zeitgeist and make it completely personal. Listen to songs like "Delicate", "Blank Space", "I Knew You Were Trouble" and the new "You Need to Calm Down"; they are just a few of many bulls’ eye hits (for a more exhaustive list, go here).
And then there's her overwhelming live shows. Swift is known for not holding back with the production in her shows. Her concerts transform into total shows full of scenography, dancers, lights and graphics. The pop star is at the centre of it all, and she is not afraid to strip things down to just her and a guitar. With numerous hits in the backpack, you can look forward to a massive sing-along.
Swifties, we’ll see you in front of the Orange Stage!
