Taylor Swift’s ‘Sparks Fly’ video gives inside look at her huge summer tour
In case you were not able to get a front-row seat to Taylor Swift’s Speak Now summer tour, you get the next best thing with her newly released music video for Sparks Fly.
Taylor Swift has had quite the summer – or, actually, quite the career! The singing sensation took home 13 awards from the 2011 Teen Choice Awards and her Speak Nowsummer tour has out-sold Paul McCartney making her tour the top selling summer tour.
Her new music video for Sparks Fly gives her fans a first-hand account of the highlights of her summer tour. Directed by Christian Lamb, the video shows Swift in a gold sparkly dress with her lucky number 13 painted on her hand, singing her hit song in front of thousands of fans all doing her "heart" symbol.
The footage in the video gives you highlights of her show as she traveled across the country. Fans get a peak of the amazing sets, cool costume changes and gravity-defying aerialists.
"We get to have such groovy, cool stuff happening," Swift says of her show. "I've never had pyro before. I've never had aerialists before. It's got this grand staircase. The stage in itself looks like an old-world theater. I can't believe we get to play stadiums. I'm so excited about this tour. I want to live on that stage. I hope people leave the concert feeling like they know you better."
Her show will tour through November before wrapping up in New York for two dates that, as you may have guessed, are already sold out.
"The Sparks Fly music video debuts today," Swift tweeted yesterday. "I hope you like it!"
