Tampa’s November Taylor Swift Concert

By barbara Ann Kelley, CBSTampa.com

On November 12, one month before her 22nd birthday, 2010’s hottest touring artist and 4 time Grammy Winner Taylor Swift will be making a stop at the St. Pete Times Forum on her Speak Now World Tour.

Taylor’s World tour is showcasing not only her travel stamina, 87 shows in 19 countries, but also her musical skills. Her World Tour concerts have Taylor performing on two different stages and playing several different acoustic and electric guitars, the piano, as well as a ukulele.

In addition to her insanely busy World Tour, Taylor Swift has a filmed a new video for her current single “When Sparks Fly” and a she has partnered with Elizabeth Arden to launch a fragrance this October. The fragrance’s name, “Wonderstruck”,  refers to her song “Enchanted”  on her Speak Now album.

According to Forbes Magazine Taylor made $45 million between May 2010 and May 2011. Which makes her one of music’s highest earning women, coming in second only to Lady Gaga, who made $90 million during the same time period.

Swift is a master of creativity and publicity, so it’s no wonder her every move is written about including what she inks on her arm before every concert. Taylor has been writing song lyrics on one of her arms for every concert for quite a while now. There is a fan site that is devoted just to her arm lyrics. When you go to the Tampa concert  look for her arm ink and then go to this site and report what the lyrics were. Taylor’s arm lyrics are fan reported in each city.  Here is a partial list of what has been inked on her arm during her some of her more recent concerts:

      Does anoyne know what chords she’s using? I think her guitar is tuned down a step with the capo on one which would just be like playing with it tuned standard.
