Speak Now World Tour Live

Recorded live during her Speak Now World Tour in 2011, the CD/DVD collects 16 performances from the country-pop starlet, Taylor Swift. It includes all 14 songs from her 2010 studio album Speak Now, as well as covers of Train's "Drops of Jupiter" and Kim Carnes' "Bette Davis Eyes." Speak Now World Tour Live features 18 performances, as well as home movies and rehearsal footage for the show, which was an elaborate production that utilized dancers, aerialists, numerous costume changes, and a mammoth, multi-stage setup that more closely resembled a high-profile Broadway musical than it did a country music concert. Taylor played 5 different guitars in the show, including electric, acoustic, and 12-string. She also played 2 banjos, the ukulele, and the piano, and changedvcostumes 9 times over the course of the evening. She moved around the venue and used different stages, giving every audience member a great seat.

"I'm so excited to go back out on tour again in 2011! The 'Fearless Tour' was so much fun and even more unforgettable than I ever imagined, and I can't wait to get back out and play my new music from Speak Now! The fans have been so amazing and I'm thrilled to play in new cities around the world and meet even more of my fans in 2011!", commented Taylor Swift.

The Speak Now World Tour was Swift's second concert tour and traveled to Asia, Europe, North America and Oceania. It was ranked tenth in Pollstar's "Top 50 Worldwide Tour (Mid-Year)", earning over $40 million with all the North American dates sold out. At the conclusion of 2011, the tour placed fifth on Billboard's annual, "Top 25 Tours", earning $97 million with 89 shows.
