The pop superstar, 34, wowed the Murrayfield crowd and told them ‘we need to do this again’ on the opening night of her Eras Tour in the UK.

The hitmaker touched down around lunchtime on Friday before she was whisked away in a blacked-out vehicle accompanied by a police escort.

Taylor has received universally glowing revies from British music critics who attended her first show in the Scottish capital.

Writing for The Guardian, Alexis Petridis awarded her show five out of five stars, noting the American singer seems ‘all-powerful’.

He wrote: ‘It’s an incredibly impressive show. It succeeds in leaping between an eclectic range of material – dubstep-inspired, dark-hued pop; tweedy folk; monster-chorus-sporting anthems and acoustic guitar-driven songs that show her Nashville grounding – all of it linked by Swift’s keen melodic awareness and ability to turn songs about famous ex-partners and celebrity nemeses into universally relatable figures.’

Writing for the Daily Mail, Adrian Thrills also awarded the show five stars and descibed it as ‘a spectacle with substance’.

Praising the career-spanning nature of her three-hour long show, he wrote: ‘It’s easy to get lost in the Swiftiverse: the speculation surrounding the lyrics about her exes; the different colour codes for each album; the £1.5 billion this tour is expected to generate. But all the background noise fades the minute this brilliant performer hits the stage.’
