With the recent stories of multiple screens, pre-regs and so on around Taylor Swift what’s the most you’ve put yourself out for tickets. Last Friday I had to reschedule an optician check-up as it clashed with the onsale for Sasha (legendary dj) at the Hare and Hounds. I was right, hitting refresh and so on on strong wifi was vital. Sold out in about 20 seconds flat. Going back 40 years I can remember several trips to the Ardwick Apollo to queue up for tickets in the early eighties, when I possibly should have been at sixth form.
This Friday Taylor Swift will release her seventh album, Lover. It’s been previewed by four great singles that have swerved and wrong-footed us all and teed up the new record nicely.
Her last album, 2017’s Reputation was a harder album with a mixture of cynicism and dismissiveness. The lead single back in 2017 announced “The old Taylor can’t come to the phone right now. Why..? Because she’s DEAD”.
