Why You Should Go: Taylor Swift says she was on a mission to make her current arena and stadium tour every bit as much of a pop experience as last year’s 1989 album. “I was very adamant that every decision I’ve made creatively in the past had to be almost flipped,” Swift says. “You’re not going to see me playing the banjo.” Producer Max Martin was enlisted to teach her live band how to re-create the 1989 sound. The set list draws most from the record but also includes revamped versions of some old favorites — “‘Love Story,’ ‘I Knew You Were Trouble’ and ‘We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together’ are completely different,” Swift says.
