Taylor Swift Speak Now tour

Location: Worldwide
Date Commenced: May 2011

Multi-award winning American country music icon Taylor Swift used Stage Technologies’ performer flying expertise on her “Speak Now” international tour. Swift’s production company Inc contracted Stage Technologies to flyer her and aerial performers during the show.

The kit used included nine BigTow winches and controls and the effects they powered included flying aerial performers as well as a four-way flying bridle out in the house. The latter picked up Swift on the front of the stage and flew her in 3D around the arena and closer to her fans during a song.

ZFX’s Michael Petit accompanied the tour as the automation operator.

Once finished in the USA the tour continued to Australia and New Zealand in February and March 2012.


The rental system included:

  • 2 x 60ft ZFX performer flying tracks – using BT200 winches

  • 1 x Twin Line BT200 Winch
