Wearing a blue dress, and an acoustic guitar in her hands, Taylor Swift spoke to the throng of human beings watching her at Allianz Parque stadium in Sao Paulo, Brazil, and said simply, "I’ve never performed this one live before. Let’s see how I do with it."

The song in question was "Now That We Don't Talk" which is one of the vault tracks from Taylor Swift's recently released 1989 (Taylor's Version). By any other artist, the song would have probably ended up on the original record, but Swift just has too many songs in her head and those tracks need to be spread out. But fans had never heard the song this way before.

Swifties in Brazil also got to hear Taylor Swift perform vault tracks from 1989 (Taylor's Version), "Slut!" and "Suburban Legends" as well as "Bigger Than the Whole Sky" from Midnights (3AM Edition). None of those three had been played live before either. Plus, Swift sang "Innocent" (from the album, Speak Now) for the first time live since the 2010 MTV Video Music Awards.

Taylor Swift dazzles in run of Brazil shows

The concerts were held over this past weekend instead of the weekend before as the heat in Brazil had caused postponements. The heat was also the reason that one Swift fan passed away while waiting for the pop queen to come to the stage. There have been reports that Swift's team may have contacted the deceased fan's family, however, one family member and one media site say no one has contacted the fan's family.

As far as the shows themselves, Taylor Swift never fails to dazzle. There was no sighting of Swift's boyfriend, Travis Kelce of the Kansas City Chiefs, but he was scheduled to play a game and could not get away. Maybe the next concert Swift does, he can go (Tokyo 2024!).
