Taylor Swift, Dua Lipa, Becky G & SZA's Perform At Prime Day Concert
Taylor Swift headlined Wednesday night’s Amazon Prime Day concert.
Amazon Prime members watched it live stream from New York City – a first-of-its-kind event for Amazon to promote next week’s annual Amazon Prime day, which this year takes place over 48 hours.
Hosted by Jane Lynch, the concert opened with five-song sets by Dua Lipa, followed by Becky G and SZA. Each set was book-ended with pitches for Amazon products, including the Alexa smart assistant and their music streaming service, as well as commercials for current and forthcoming Amazon original shows, including first looks at the new series Modern Love and Carnival Row.
Taylor didn’t take the stage until well after 11:00 p.m. ET and opened her set with "ME!," from her forthcoming Lover album, before delivering eight more back-to-back hits. Most of the songs in Taylor’s set came from her 2014 album, 1989: "Blank Space," "Welcome to New York," "Style" and "Shake It Off." She also performed one song each from 2017’s Reputation, 2012’s Red, and her second album, 2008’s Fearless – "Delicate," "I Knew You Were Trouble" and "Love Story," respectively.
She also performed "You Need to Calm Down" – also from her forthcoming Lover album, due out August 23rd. It was Taylor’s first-ever live performance of the song. She closed out the show with "Shake It Off." The crowd enthusiastically shouted along to the bridge: "Just think, while you’ve been getting down and out about the liars and the dirty, dirty cheats in the world, you could have been getting down to this sick beat."
The concert is still available on Amazon, where you watch it if you’re a Prime member of if you sign up for a 30-day free trial.
