Taylor Swift's Acoustic Performance Of "I Don't Wanna Live Forever" Will Leave Fans Wanting More — VIDEO
Fans can't wait for Taylor Swift to release new music, which is why any glimpse of the singer performing has to be seen immediately. At the DIRECTV NOW Super Saturday Night pre-Super Bowl concert in Houston in February 2017, her only live concert of the year, Swift performed an acoustic version of "I Don't Wanna Live Forever." Featured on the Fifty Shades Darker soundtrack, Swift usually performs the song with Zayn Malik, so it's really exciting to see her perform the single solo, especially live on stage. Basically, Swift's "I Don't Wanna Live Forever" performance will leaves fans wanting more, and hoping that her next album is coming soon.
According to Entertainment Weekly, Swift told the audience at the Houston gig, “By coming to this show tonight, you are attending 100 percent of this year’s tour dates.” The singer's decision not to tour in 2017 gives fans even more of a reason to watch her performance on DIRECTV NOW, as it's the closest anyone will get to attending a Swift gig. The snippet from the performance, which premiered exclusively on EW's site, is so great because her vocals sound really raw, and she's performing without a backing band. It's just Swift, center stage, giving everything to the audience. And what could be better than that?
Based on the clip of Swift performing above, her Houston gig looks electric. Fans are holding up red lights throughout the song, and provide the "Red" singer with backing vocals. Clearly, the audience loved being at this exclusive 2017 gig, which will make anyone that didn't attend extremely envious.
The third part of Swift's Super Saturday Night gig is available on Taylor Swift NOW on DIRECTV. If you weren't already convinced that you needed the "Shake It Off" singer's TV channel in your life, the new clip released on Thursday is bound to change your mind.
