Anthony Albanese might have been captured shaking it off at Taylor Swift’s first Sydney show, but he’s ruled out at least one song from being played at his wedding.

A self-described “Swiftie”, the Prime Minister and fiancee Jodie Haydon weren’t shy when the 14-time Grammy winner played Shake It Off on Friday night, which a fellow concert-goer captured and shared to the internet.

Mr Albanese has routinely described the 1989 single as one that carries a “great message” for young girls and women about female empowerment.

The door is open for it to play at the couple’s upcoming nuptials, but there’s a few songs that definitely won’t be played.

“She’s got some great tracks, but many of them are not great wedding songs,” Mr Albanese joked on Sunday.

“She’s very good at breakup songs, and you’ve got to be very careful about what you play.

“(Probably not) We Are Never Getting Back Together.”

Prime Minister Anthony Albanese was captured dancing to Taylor Swift’s hit song ‘Shake It Off’ at her concert on Friday night.

Mr Albanese revealed he received a “few” friendship bracelets from fellow fans on Friday night, and said the seven-show run in Australia had been great for the economy, and for overall happiness.

“At a time where there is so much turmoil, this tour has been... so positive and uplifting,” he said.

“That is her message... It has been (pure joy).”

Mr Albanese wasn’t the only politician at Swift’s show on Friday night.

Former prime minister Scott Morrison was also in the crowd, alongside his wife Jenny and daughters Abbey and Lily.

“So many having such a great night. Enjoy everyone,” Mr Morrison captioned a Facebook post, which included photos from the event.

Both of Swift’s shows in Sydney have been star-studded events, with the likes of Katy Perry, Rita Ora, Rebel Wilson, and Toni Collette watching on from the VIP tent.
