Seven-time GRAMMY winner Taylor Swift announced The 1989 World Tour on Good Morning America this morning just days after performing an epic concert in Times Square to over 20,000 fans, wrapping up promotion of her history making fifth studio album, 1989. The 1989 World Tour; produced and promoted by AEG Live & The Messina Group (TMG), kicks off on May 20, 2015 in Louisiana and makes a stop at the KFC Yum! Center in Louisville on June 2.

Australian singer-songwriter Vance Joy will be main support along the North American tour. The 1989 World Tour will encompass eight countries and span four continents including North America, Europe, Australia and Asia**. The first tickets for the North American leg will go on-sale to the general public on November 14th. American Express® Card Members and members of TaylorSwift.com will have access to purchase tickets in advance beginning November 7th*. General ticketing and on-sale information will be available atTaylorSwift.com.

 

Last year, the North American portion of Taylor's sold out The RED Tour played to more than 1.36 million fans over 66 shows (including 13 stadium stops) in 47 cities in 29 states. Also in 2013, Taylor took The RED Tour Down Under -- performing sold out stadium shows in Australia (as well as arena dates in New Zealand), becoming the first solo female artist in twenty years to undertake a national stadium concert tour of Australia. In addition, The RED Tour visited Europe for six sold-out shows in 2014. Taylor Swift, who writes all of her own songs, is a global superstar, seven-time GRAMMY winner and the youngest winner in history of the music industry's highest honor, the GRAMMY Award for Album of the Year. Taylor is the only artist in music history to have an album (2010's Speak Now, 2012's RED and 2014's 1989) hit the 1 million plus first-week sales figure three times. She is the first artist since the Beatles (and the only female artist in history) to log six or more weeks at #1 in the U.S. with three consecutive studio albums. Taylor has an album on Rolling Stone's prestigious The 50 Greatest Albums of All Time (by women) list, Time magazine has named her one the of the 100 Most Influential People in the world, and she is Billboard's youngest-ever Woman of the Year and the only artist to have been awarded this honor twice. Taylor has career record sales in excess of 30 million albums and almost 80 million song downloads worldwide, and has had singles top both the pop and country radio charts around the globe. Taylor's album RED (Big Machine Records), released two years ago, sold more than 1.2 million copies in the U.S. in its first week, scoring the highest first-week sales debut of any album in over a decade. "Shake It Off.” the first single off her critically acclaimed fifth studio album 1989, topped Billboard’s Pop, HotAC and Hot 100 charts and has earned double Platinum-status by the RIAA for exceeding sales of two million downloads in the U.S., and has peaked at No. 1 in 64 countries on iTunes.  1989 topped iTunes’ sales charts in 95 countries on its release and was the highest selling first week release of 2014.

Center in Louisville, KY on Saturday, August 16. She will be touring in support of PRISM, which debuted at number one on The Billboard 200 and remains in the Top Ten three months after release.  The platinum album has given Katy her biggest ever single with "Roar", while "Dark Horse" just became her lucky 13th Top Ten hit on The Billboard Hot 100.

I'm so excited that I got to hand-select some of my favorite artists to join me on this journey - I know you'll love Capital Cities, Kacey Musgraves and Tegan and Sara as much as I do."

The 11-time GRAMMY® nominated singer cemented her status as a best-selling superstar with the global success of her second studio album, Teenage Dream, which debuted at #1 in 8 countries and spent over two years on Billboard's Top 200 album sales chart. She became the only female artist to have 5 #1 singles from one album on the Billboard Hot 100 chart ("California Gurls," "Teenage Dream," "Firework," "E.T." and "Last Friday Night"). The special edition, Teenage Dream: The Complete Confection, added "Part of Me" and "Wide Awake" to Katy's list of nine Top 40 chart-toppers (dating back to her multi-platinum debut album, 2008's One of the Boys, which generated four hit singles: "I Kissed A Girl," "Hot N Cold," "Thinking of You" and "Waking Up In Vegas"). THE PRISMATIC WORLD TOUR is Katy's first tour since 2011's sold-out California Dreams Tour, which was the subject of 2012's 3D feature film, Katy Perry: Part Of Me, the fifth biggest music documentary of all time.
