Taylor kicked the party off with the first track on her album, accurately titled “Welcome to New York.”
Taylor’s fans went absolutely wild for her love letter to New York, which, by the way, is now officially an anthem for the New York Tourism board now that Taylor is their Global Welcome Ambassador. The lights on the Empire State building were even synched to the sick beat of Taylor’s music, so fans got the full effect!
Taylor also performed “Style” for the first time, which is another fan favorite off the album. Could it be yet another ode to ex-boyfriend Harry Styles?
Taylor seemed so happy to be playing for her fans during a truly magical evening amid breathtaking scenery — and there’s no doubt that she totally killed it!
