The country-pop star took the stage Wednesday for the first concert in her two-night stand in Omaha, Neb., launching her tour in support of her chart-topping album, RED, which has moved over 5 million copies and has charted four No. 1. singles.
“I can’t wait for you guys to see this show,” she gushed on Good Morning America Wednesday ahead of the show. “I can’t wait to see you on the road.”
The RED Tour — which features English singer-songwriter Ed Sheeran as a special guest — will see Swift headline 58 shows in 45 cities across North America, before wrapping in her hometown of Nashville, Tenn., on Sept. 21.
During the Ohama concert — where Swift had an “amazing crowd,” she later tweeted — the Grammy-winning singer teamed up with her tour mate Sheeran for a rendition of their hit duet, “Everything Has Changed,” featured on her RED album.
Swift’s kick-off came on the heels of her debuting the music video for “22,” her fourth single off RED.
In the sun-drenched, smiles-filled clip — directed by Anthony Mandler, the mastermind behind her moodier “I Knew You Were Trouble” video — Swift strikes a carefree note, gallivanting with her gal pals from beaches to house bashes as she croons about “feeling 22.”
“We shot this video last month in Malibu,” she explained on GMA. “I never had this much fun shooting a video because my friends in the video are actually my real-life best friends.”
