Taylor Swift Praises Calvin Harris During '1989' Tour Live Show: 'I Happen To Love Scottish People'

Taylor Swift couldn’t resist making a reference to her new Scottish boyfriend, Calvin Harris, when she brought her ‘1989’ tour to Glasgow.


The ‘Shake It Off’ singer kicked the UK leg of her world tour off on Tuesday night, whizzing through some of her best-known hits, as well as tracks from her most recent offering, ‘1989’.

However, the moment she got people talking most came when she alluded to her new relationship during the show, telling the crowds: “Look at all of these amazing Scottish people in this room right now.

“I happen to love Scottish people, personally.”

She also revealed her Scottish heritage, much to the delight of the audience, explaining: “My dad sent me an email saying our whole family is from Scotland, so I evidently am one of you.”

Although both Taylor and Calvin have been tight-lipped about their relationship since they began dating earlier this year, the DJ and music producer couldn’t help but sing her praises on Twitter on Tuesday, after she posted an open letter to Apple, thought to have prompted a turnaround in plans by the company to not pay artists during a free trial of their music streaming service.

Pop singer Ellie Goulding recently revealed that she was the matchmaker behind Calvin and Taylor’s relationship, joking: “I thought, ‘They’re both really awesome and both really tall, they’ll be brilliant together’.”

Taylor will continue the UK leg of her ‘1989’ tour with a concert in Manchester on Wednesday, before headlining the British Summer Time festival at London’s Hyde Park this weekend.
