Taylor Confusion Cancels Concert

Taylor Swift’s sappy line in countrified pop has a lot of young fans who would happily rush to see her play. So when the Liverpool Echo reported that Swift was to do an intimate gig at St Margaret Mary’s Catholic Junior School, people began to ring up and enquire. If that sounds like an unlikely venue, you’d be right, because Swift was in America picking up a Grammy. In reality, the much lesser known Taylor Bright was playing the school. And then the report was read out over the PA system at the Liverpool vs. Bolton football match.

The end result of all this was the concert having to be cancelled for security reasons before hordes of teenage girls and a few dubious older men descended. The paper is donating to the school to say sorry, and the football club will be inflicting the Taylor Bright single on their crowd.
