I know I've seen a few things lately where the bands had zero control over the merchandise costs in the venues, probably more on smaller venues,

FWIW : Here's the order I placed at the Swift store after my (first) Taylor concert. I didn't buy merch at the merch tent because the line was quite insane.
The store had a one-day 15% discount code that they sent an email out about. Seems pretty fair actually.


The bad news is that there's such demand that I still have to wait 2 months for the order.

Is the code still available or will there be any future discounts?

I emailed them and they said the shirt would be sealed in plastic.

Apparently there's a new 24 hr code after every show.

So it appears it will be
HOUSTON15A on Friday 4/21
HOUSTON15B on Saturday 4/22
​​​​​​​HOUSTON15C on Sunday 4/23

I'm not understanding the hype and clamor over the RSD release of the Long Pond session - the regular Folklore is so much better!
The Long Pond is fine as a curiosity, or to just watch the performance, but the way people are clamoring for the vinyl as if a far superior recording isn't already out there is kinda weird.

It's more about rarity rather than quality. And I agree : Long Pond is fine to watch once, but far inferior to Folklore (Regular or Deluxe Edition).

But is it even that rare - maybe in relation to demand, but most shops are posting how they have 40 to 50 copies and first come, 1 per, etc, but most RSD releases are more like 1 to 3 copies per store. So it's hardly "rare" in that sense.

I really wonder will Swift eventually try to re-record both Folklore and Evermore in a quality studio environment with a larger backing band. All I know is that "Shake It Up" from 1989 sounds really different when Swift does it by herself and a guitar--it a little bit reminds me of Robert Johnson playing the blues with only his voice and guitar. In the end, the Long Pond Sessions vinyl is more a curiosity than anything else.

I really doubt that she will. She likes the current recordings, she's proud that she was able to pull off those albums during Covid, and most importantly, she already owns these masters. She still has to re-record or release re-recordings of Speak Now, 1989, Reputation, Debut. Plus she was probably recording new stuff with Jack last year before the tour.

I didn't say in the near future. I think redoing Folklore and Evermore with a larger band will be more a project for maybe 8-10 years down the road.

Re: Taylor Swift -- Discussion Thread

As predicted by many, many people, Taylor played High Infidelity tonight.

Since my next show is Mother's Day, I assume I'm getting The Best Day. I suppose it could be Soon You'll Get Better, but that's kind of too heavy a song to do live.

I wonder if she will do a international tour after the US legs are finished?

She is now dating the lead singer for the 1975 Matt Healy.

Now we can get albums from her and him when they break up

Re: Taylor Swift -- Discussion Thread

There’s a rumor. Doesn’t at all mean it’s true. Confirmation from “an anonymous source”? Okay then.

Matty is kinda grungy and gross and former drug addict. Doesn’t really seem like her type, besides for Jack Antonoff producing his newest album.

You never know a lot of hot famous celebrities go for guys we would not think that is their type.

Pete Davidson to name a few.

Let's wait until Swift finishes the US tour later this year. It may not happen due to the gigantic cost of the (likely) two sets being used for the US tour.

BTW, seems like not all of the pressed copies of her RSD release made it to stores before RSD, and the remaining are trickling into indie stores now.

If you see one Slop, buy a copy and let me know. I will Paypal you for the cost and shipping. My daughter really wants one (natch).

If I ever go.
I don't really step foot inside local stores any more - been buying almost all my shit online.
But they do post what they received on their social on occasion.

Speak Now (Taylors Version" comes out on July 7.

I think that was the last album that had more of a country feel?

I like her pop stuff over the country part of her career.
