"She sits at the soundboard every night and watches the show. It’s really cool to know that someone from your family is always going to be there watching to make sure that everything’s okay. I played the song The Best Day on Mother’s Day as a surprise for my mom. That’s a song that I wrote about her. She was sitting there at the soundboard and I surprised her with it. And she cried, cried and cried, and it was really, really fun to sing that song to her.”
5 years ago, on April 23rd, 2009, Taylor Swift’s first headlining tour - the Fearless Tour - began. The tour consisted of 106 shows in North America, Oceania, Europe, and Asia. As soon as tickets went on sale, they sold out almost instantly. Two of the most well known venues in the United States - Madison Square Garden and the Staples Center - had sold out within two minutes. Taylor continued the tour until the following year, ending it in Gillette Stadium in July of 2010. However, she immediately dove into her next record, wasting no time to step up her successful career.
