Taylor Announces 2013 “Red” Tour Dates
She'll hit 45 cities in the U.S. and Canada, with British singer/songwriter Ed Sheeran as opening act.
Taylor Swift is heading back out on the road for six months next year to support her new album, Red, she announced Friday night (Oct. 26) on the ABC special All Access Nashville With Katie Couric.
Taylor's tour begins March 13 (Taylor's lucky number) in Omaha and ends in September with three dates in her adopted hometown of Nashville.
The Red Tour will encompass 58 shows in 45 cities in the U.S. and Canada—and the venues will include nine stadiums.
Per Taylor's instruction, each show will have some tickets that are under $50 each. The first round of tickets goes on sale Nov. 16. Other tour details are available on Taylor's website.
British singer/songwriter Ed Sheeran, who duets with Taylor on the Red track "Everything Has Changed," will open all dates.
In addition, it was announced today that Taylor will be co-hosting this year's Grammy Nominations Concert Live special in Nashville. The concert features a performance by Luke Bryan and reveals some of this year's Grammy nominees. It airs Dec. 5 at 10 p.m. ET on CBS.
