Taylor Swift sampled the local fare while on her latest Speak Now tour stop in the Garden State earlier this week (July 19), treating her New Jersey fans to a couple very familiar tunes. Watch below.
Strapped with an acoustic guitar, Taylor asked the crowd, “Are you guys aware of the brilliant music that’s been created in New Jersey?” Swift then started strumming the opening chords to Springsteen’s “Dancing in the Dark” and instructed her audience to sing along. One fan excitedly shrieked, “That’s Bruce Springsteen!”
Suddenly, Swift was amidst a short, but impassioned Jersey medley, transitioning from the Jersey Shore-born Boss to Sayreville’s own pride and joy, Bon Jovi. The audience had no qualms about chiming in to sing the band’s bar anthem, “Livin’ on a Prayer,” and Swift’s ode to the Garden State was met with roaring approval.
