  • Taylor Swift: Gallery of first Etihad concert

Taylor Swift rocked the Etihad on her first night at the home of the Premier League champions.

"You've shown that you will never let anyone forget about those victims".

"Concerts are supposed to be about innocence, and about joy, and about excitement".

She added: "I just wanted to say, Manchester, it's such an honour to be playing for you tonight".

Nicely done, Taylor - and there's more to come on Saturday evening from this most talented young lady.

During the Reputation tour, Charli has made sure every performance is energetic but it has gone a little too far in the past when she admitted to accidentally falling out of her crop top just seconds into her set. Taylor shamelessly interweaved the old and the new: "Love Story", "Should've Said No", "Style", "I Knew You Were Trouble", "We Are Never Getting Back Together" and huge fan favourite, "Long Live", which she combined with "New Year's Day" on piano, proving the "old Taylor" is right where we left her.

Model Winnie Harlow not to blame for early chequered flag - Charlie Whiting
Her error meant the race was cut short by two laps, but did not affect the result. Still, the early flag could have created a risky situation.

The singer took to the stage at the English city's Etihad Stadium and took a moment to speak about the strength of the city following the terror attack at Manchester Arena. "I cried 10 hundred times in the session writing it for you".

Swift, 28, delivered her heartfelt comments while talking with fans between performing her songs.

Despite Swift referring a few times to the "sold-out stadium" there appeared to be some empty seats on Friday.

Taylor embarked on her stadium tour last month to a sell-out crowd in Glendale, Arizona. "I think i saved it but I'm so so sorry if I flashed anyone I really didn't mean to I promise!"

There were nearly as many cheers for support act Camila Cabello whose ear-worm hit Havana set the stage for Swift after the other support, Charli XCX, pitched one theme for the evening when she reminded the crowd that there were "three incredible, baddass women performing on the same stage".

But, according to Manchester Evening News, Swift has stolen a march on the other celebrities heading for these gathering by booking out the entirety of The Lowry - the five star hotel in the city favoured by many of its A-list visitors.
