About forty-five minutes down the M62 in Liverpool, one of the biggest superstars of modern-pop, Taylor Swift, is taking stage for the first of three sold-out stadium gigs in Liverpool. Three songs into her set at Halifax and, as Sheryl Crow breaks out into her mega-hit “All I Wanna Do”, for these few thousand fans in Yorkshire, this is where the real party is.

Taking time to acknowledge the musical talents of opening act Irish rock band Dea Matrona, Sheryl Crow laughs before admitting “Im happy knowing that music is in good hands with bands like this.”

Diving right back to the beginning in her back catalogue, fans are treated to a career-spanning set with the aforementioned “All I Wanna Do” following another hit from back in the day in the form of “Run, Baby Run”.

Watching the Missouri singer-songwriter blazing through her set, it would be fair to say that while she is right about many of the new acts of today ensuring music is in safe hands, Sheryl showed tonight in Halifax that she has plenty more years left before she hangs up her guitar even if her kids are now too cool to come on the road with mum just ask the numerous pockets of fans dancing the night away all around The Piece Hall tonight.
