Taylor Swift’s Tour Is Off To A Rock ‘N’ Roll Start

So, this is what it's like to party like it's 1989. Taylor Swift took her crew to Tokyo for the start of her 1989 world tour. After arriving in Japan to a lot of fanfare and mastering the art of unpeeling spicy shrimp, the pop star treated fans to a show they won't soon forget. The rest of us will just have to settle for watching it all unfold on Instagram.  Here are a few snaps the singer shared from her two-night Tokyo gig. The FOMO is real, people.

Swift, who kicked off the Tokyo shows with "Welcome to New York," gave concertgoers an extra special treat with her hard rock take on "We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together," which you can watch below. Between that, the Meredith and Olivia cameo, and this Britney-style sequined number, we're basically bursting with delight.
