“So I have some big news. My new album is finally out. I am beyond excited to tell you [that] I am going back out on tour next year,” Swift said during the ’20/20 All Access Nashville’ special.
As of now, there are 58 shows slated for 45 cities in 29 states, with 9 shows taking place at stadiums, including the famed Cowboy’s Stadium in Dallas, Detroit’s Ford Field, Pittsburgh’s Heinz Field and Gillette Stadium, among others. But, expect more to follow.
The 2013 Red Tour trek kicks off on March 13, which Swift sweetly reminded us is her lucky number. She will be on the road through September of 2013, and some of the tickets for the run will be on sale as of Nov. 16.
Her lucky special guest is her collaborator Ed Sheeran, the redheaded British singer-songwriter who duets with her on the ‘Red’ track ‘Everything Has Changed.’
Swift set the bar incredibly high on her Speak Now Tour. She wrote lyrics on her arms in black Sharpie marker, which had fans seeking out their hidden meanings. She covered regional artists in the markets in which she performed, and she even invited a bevy of guests to share the stage with her. It was one of the best-selling tours of the year.
What will Swift do to top it with her Red Tour? She has her work cut out for her, but we look forward to watching her rise to the occasion. You can check out if Taylor will be in to your town here.
