Speaking about the gig, which will also feature a guest performance from rock n’ roll girl-gang dance squad, The Cherry Bombs, Taylor says: “I’ve been saying since the beginning I’d find a way to bring this music and this band to the people. And I’m honored that The Forum let us do just that. It’s CMFT in its entirety. It’s songs I’ve shared over the years. It’s a celebration, and I’m so stoked to party with all of you.”
