Kelsea Ballerini Stops Concert to Ask About Taylor Swift’s Eras Tour
Kelsea Ballerini is a Swiftie like all of us.
The “Peter Pan” singer stopped her own Heartfirst Tour show in Atlantic City, New Jersey, over the weekend to inquire about another concert that would be happening across the country – Taylor’s highly anticipated Eras Tour Swift.
“Can I just equalize you for a minute? Is anyone tracking down the Eras tour? Has it started? Ballerini, 29, asked the crowd inside Hard Rock Live at Etess Arena.
“I’ll hunt him down after this, but I just have one question. Is she… is ‘Cruel Summer’ on the setlist?
Onlookers cheered, confirming Swift performed the catchy track from her seventh studio album, “Lover.”
“It is?!” an ecstatic Ballerini responded, blowing a kiss and bowing. “Wow, it’s my Super Bowl, I have to be honest. Good. Wow. That’s all I needed to know. Thanks for that. Live updates.
Ballerini has been a notorious Swift fan for years. The country star even performed with the “Bad Blood” singer during the 1989 World Tour in Nashville, Tennessee, in 2015.
“The first time I met this artist was eight years ago when she was waiting in line to meet me at a lineup at the CMA Music Fest,” Swift said onstage. at the Bridgestone Arena at the time.
“Guys, this is her first time ever performing in this arena. Please make some noise for my friend, I wish she was my sister, Kelsea Ballerini!
As previously reported, Swift, 33, kicked off her Eras Tour on Friday night at State Farm Stadium in Glendale, Arizona, performing a three-hour show that included hits like “Love Story,” “All Too Well (10 Minute Version), “”You need to calm down”, “Blank space”, “Look what you made me do”, “22” and “Karma”.
Emma Stone was in the audience and went viral after videos surfaced of her “losing her mind,” as one fan aptly put it, while Swift sang “You Belong With Me” and “Fearless.”
“No thoughts just emma stone playing for taylor swift,” wrote a second fan on Twitter in response to the clips, with another adding, “EMMA STONE YOU ARE JUST LIKE ME.”
