No word yet on whether or not Taylor Swift will invite her Victoria’s Secret superstar model friends to join her on stage next week at PNC Arena. But she will certainly draw a full house of fans, from pre-teens to grandmas, eager to enjoy one of the most popular, entertaining and famous figures in pop music. Fans can expect a dynamic show, filled with spectacle, variety and a sing-along set list featuring “Shake it Off,” “Bad Blood” and other hot numbers from throughout her storied career.
At 25, Swift is the youngest member of the Forbes list of The World’s 100 Most Powerful Women. Many would argue she also ranks among the most gifted and fan-savvy artists of all time. You can see and hear for yourself Tuesday as she takes the stage for the Raleigh leg of her 1989 World Tour. More info at thepncarena.com.
