Watch: Taylor Swift speaks Welsh during her Eras show in Cardiff

The say it was the one of the most hotly anticipated shows to ever arrive in Cardiff would be something of an understatement.

When Taylor Swift’s Eras tour rolled into Cardiff’s Principality Stadium, there was joy unconfined. And the noise was cranked up to 11 when she arrived on stage and spoke Welsh.

Taking the wild cheers of fans she waved and shouted: ‘Shwmae!’ and then speaking about what an honour it was to play her first ever show in Wales, she announced: “Croeso i’r daith Eras” (Welcome to the Eras tour!)

She even got her backing dancers involved with one of her crew Kam exclaiming “Ych a fi!” (Yuck!) during break up hit We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together and then ‘Un, dau, tri, pedwar!” (One two, three, four) during another, while she also dressed in the colours of the Welsh flag during the show.

And one little Swiftie had her dreams come true when she joined the pop star on stage and received the singer’s hat following a big hug.

All we can say is da iawn Taylor!

Taylor spoke Welsh on stage which is more than Sir Tom Jones has ever done.
