Taylor Swift announced that she will launch a North American stadium and arena tour in early 2013 in support of her blockbuster new album, RED. Taylor made the special announcement in partnership with ABC’s primetime TV special “All Access Nashville with Katie Couric – A Special Edition of 20/20.”
On The RED Tour, Taylor is currently slated to headline 62 shows in 45 cities in 29 states and 3 provinces in 2013. The tour will kick-off on March 13 in Omaha, Nebraska and continue through September. Acclaimed singer/songwriter Ed Sheeran, whose duet with Taylor from her RED album, “Everything Has Changed,” has already reached the #1 position atop iTunes all-genre Top Songs chart, will be a special guest on all of the shows on the tour.
At Taylor’s request, every show will include tickets priced at under $50. The first tickets will go on sale on November 16th, and on-sale information is available now at www.taylorswift.com. Taylor’s RED Tour is set to be one of the most-anticipated musical events of 2013, as Taylor’s live shows are renowned worldwide for bringing her music to life with what Variety has dubbed “supreme spectacle” and Billboard has hailed as an “overwhelming experience…that blended the pacing, the music and the artist’s personality in a way that transfixed.” During the course of every show, Taylor plays a variety of instruments and performs her biggest hits and fan favorites from her four Big Machine Records albums.
“I didn’t think I could be any more excited about my RED album, but then I start thinking about how I’m going to put the new show together for The RED Tour,” says Taylor. “I have so many ideas about how to really bring this music to life, and I can’t wait to share the new show with all my fans!”
Two-time BRIT Award winning singer/songwriter Ed Sheeran has become one of the biggest musical success stories in the UK over the past year and is already a fast-rising star in the U.S. Sheeran’s debut single, “The A Team,” was Britain’s highest-charting, biggest-selling debut single of 2011; his debut album, “+”, entered the UK Albums Chart at #1 and has since been certified 5x-platinum. “+” debuted at #5 on the Billboard 200 upon its stateside release via Elektra Records this past summer, with “The A Team” continuing to climb the radio charts.
