Taylor Swift has been sharing the stage with a lot of her BFFs recently on her 1989 World Tour. Everyone from Alanis Morissette to Nick Jonas to Fetty Wap and Ellen DeGeneres have popped up at her shows so far, and last night she added a name with strong Dallas ties to that list: St. Vincent.
St. Vincent showed up at the Staples Center in Los Angeles on Tuesday along with Beck to perform Beck's latest single, "Dreams," at Swift's show. (John Legend showed up too, for good measure.) Beck was okay and all, based on the fan-shot videos that have surfaced, but the highlight in our book was Annie Clark strutting down the runway and shredding away on her guitar. We would've been equally happy to see her shredding over "Blank Space" or "Bad Blood" or "Shake It Off" (not that we know any of T-Swift's songs), but hey, we'll take what we can get.
Both Swift and St. Vincent, who smiled away throughout the performance, were glowing afterward when they took to Twitter to recount the moment. "Getting to play 'Dreams' with @Beck and @st_vincent is something I'll remember forever," Swift tweeted. "I can't even express it." Added Clark, "Had the most MAGIC time with the most brilliant and venerable @taylorswift13 & @beck tonight. #DreamComeTrue."
Swift's tour rolls through the Dallas area on October 17 for a stop at Jerry Jones' Football Palace. We note that St. Vincent's schedule is open that night and, being that this is a friendship we can't endorse enough, we would fully encourage an encore of last night. Just saying.
Here are a couple videos from the show:
