Taylor Swift reveals she feels 'amazing and powerful' as she storms the stage in Liverpool after battling days of chilly weather on UK tour leg


Taylor Swift felt ‘amazing and powerful’ as she stormed on stage at Anfield Stadium in Liverpool on Friday for the latest leg of her Eras Tour.

The pop icon, 34, has been struggling to adjust to the cold weather of the UK as she kicked off that leg of her Eras tour with three sold-out shows in Scotland last week.

But the sun was finally shining for Taylors and thousands of her fans, who appeared in high spirits ahead of the show. 

Taylor wowed in a shimmering red plunging blazer, with a guitar in her hands – before going on to make 10 further outfit changes. 

Speaking to the crowd, she said: ‘Liverpool you just made me feel so amazing. That was really cool that has gone to my head. You have made me feel really powerful.

‘This weekend is the first time I’ve ever got the chance to play in Liverpool. And you’ve already made a stunning impression on me.

I’m having more fun on this tour than in my entire life!’

The audience erupted as she kicked off the show with Cruel Summer, before going on to sing The Man and Calm Down. 

Her surprise song of the show was a mashup of This Is What You Came For and Gold Rush. 

It comes after Taylor admitted she had a ‘sniffly nose’ during her Liverpool gig on Thursday before introducing the surprise song of the night.

The singer has been struggling to adjust to the cold weather of the UK as she kicked off that leg of her Eras tour with three sold-out shows in Scotland last week.

The Pennsylvania-born star wiped her nose with a tissue and smiled reassuring the audience: ‘We’ll be fine. I can do it with a sniffly nose. It’s fine.’

The Bad Blood hitmaker then took to the piano where she stunned fans with a surprising medley of Cornelia Street and Maroon.

Fans rushed to comment the clip on TikTok echoing the singer: ‘I can do it with a sniffly nose it’s fine’; ‘say with me “I CAN DO WITH A SNIFFLY NOSE”‘; ‘I can’t believe I haven’t seen 5,000 tweets about “I can do it with a sniffly nose”‘.

‘She totally saw people told her to get a tissue,’ wrote another user referring to when Taylor was spotted blowing her nose into her fingers several times before wiping her fingers on her sparkly outfit during the Edinburgh gig.

As part of the first leg of her UK tour, the singer performed three shows at the Murrayfield Stadium last weekend where more than 219,000 fans watched.

Speaking to the crowd, she said: 'Liverpool you just made me feel so amazing. That was really cool that has gone to my head. You have made me feel really powerful.'

Though summer is just over a week away, the cool air in the stadium likely wasn’t helping the singer’s case after temperatures dropped below eight degrees Celsius on the night of the show.

Some have blamed the chilly temperatures for the incident after the pop-star was seen clearing her nose of snot as she performed the hit song ‘Don’t Blame Me’.

In the video, the singer is seen blowing a stream of snot into her hands which she then lets drip down her hand before wiping on her skirt.

Some fans have even accused the pop sensation of flicking the mucus towards her fans as she braced the nose reddening temperatures.

While some were sympathetic, many have taken to social media to describe their disgust at seeing the pop star reeling off strings of snot.

One user wrote: ‘Taylor Swift blew her nose and snot on her skirt on stage. Fans also noticed how Taylor licked the snot from her nose at one point.’

A second was completely disgusted: ‘Someone please give Taylor Swift some tissues, the amount of times I’ve seen her wipe her nose with her hands in the past few days is crazy. I understand she’s performing but there’s got to be a way to make sure she always has access to some tissues.’

However, some came to her defence with one writing: ‘I’m not even a Swiftie, but I seriously don’t get why anyone would be mad or disgusted by someone wiping their nose. Like seriously? What was she supposed to do? I’m guessing she didn’t have a tissue right there but at least she didn’t want her face covered with snot,’

Taylor’s trio of Edinburgh shows kicked off the singer’s UK tour which will be followed by nights in Cardiff and Liverpool as well as eight nights at Wembley – where 720,000 fans will attend in London alone .

Taylor has already performed 53 dates in the US, she will return after the European leg to do nine more shows in Miami, New Orleans and Indianapolis. She will perform a total of 50 shows across 18 cities in Europe.

Some dedicated fans began queuing a full 48 hours before the star arrived in the city for her tour, as a whopping 220,000 excitedly wait for a glimpse and to buy merchandise.

However, many struggled to find accommodation in Edinburgh as hotels were quickly booked up despite tripling their rates during the megastar’s three-night residency between June 7 and 9.

Her Eras tour is set to boost the British economy by almost £1 billion.

On top of the ticket price itself, fans also splash out on travel, accommodation, a pre-concert meal, official merchandise and many will buy a new outfit for the big occasion too.

Researchers have calculated each Swiftie attending an Eras concert in the UK will spend on average £848 to see their idol perform.

Since her Scottish debut at the weekend, UK fans have complained that they have struggled to get tickets due to American’s buying up UK shows.

Taking to social media after the show, fans have said they’re upset at the choice of some attendees to fly to Scotland, given that the singer hasn’t performed in the country in eight years.

While Americans have responded they struggled to get tickets in their home state, and added that European dates are significantly cheaper due to the strength of the dollar.

Of the 4.35 million tickets sold to Swiftie fans, people from all over the world have struggled to get access to shows due to exceptionally high demand.
