With a little help from my friends: Cadenza’s dream guests for Taylor Swift’s Scottrade Center shows

This Monday and Tuesday, Taylor Swift will bring her 1989 World Tour to St. Louis’ own Scottrade Center. Swift has drawn attention for bringing out high-profile guests during nearly every show on this tour; the list runs the gamut from Mick Jagger to Julia Roberts to the U.S. women’s soccer team. In anticipation of the Scottrade shows, Cadenza shares its dream guests.

Album Review: ‘1989’ by Taylor Swift

I thought she’d done it, I really did. I thought, after 10 months devoid of blockbuster albums and full of disappointment, Taylor Swift would finally give us a world-conquering record we could all get behind. See, I’d briefly reached pop nirvana after my 50th run through “Shake It Off,” and I wanted more—12 songs more, to be exact. Heck, I’d take two as effortlessly life-affirming as my retroactive songs of the summer.

Album Review: ‘Red’ by Taylor Swift

It’s safe to say that “Red” is Taylor Swift as you have never heard her before. When “Speak Now” was released, the same chord progressions were stretching their usability thin, and I was sick of how whiny Swift had become. I described her songs as “a chick flick in three minutes or fewer,” something to be enjoyed with a pint of chocolate ice cream.
