Seven-time GRAMMY winner Taylor Swift announced last month that in response to strong fan demand she would take her critically-acclaimed The RED Tour to Asia this summer. Fan demand true, the seven Asian dates sold out in record speeds and broke history books with the fastest ticket on-sale in Chinese history. The RED Tour is promoted by AEG Live Asia.<br /> <br /> Taylor Swifts The RED Tour has earned universally high praise from top critics:<br /> <br /> Rolling Stone -- <em>"A massively excellent show. Seeing Taylor Swift live in 2013 is seeing a maestro at the top of her or anyones game. No other pop auteur can touch her right now for emotional excess or musical reach. Red [is] the slickest, smartest and just plain best mega-pop statement of our time. Seeing Taylor onstage now is seeing....total commitment, total fan fervor, total connection between audience and performer. A true arena-rock goddess at an amazing peak."</em><br /> <br /> The New York Times -- <em>"A king-size spectacle, [whose] juxtapositions have power, one theatrical scene after the next. Taylor Swift off-script is very much like Taylor Swift on-script: not just the brains of the operation, but the brawn, too, the unflappable force that ensures stuck landings. Ms. Swifts voice is stronger than its ever been, and also sturdier.she sang vividly from behind a piano, show[ing] credible dark emotion."</em><br /> <br /> The Times (London) -- <em>"Impressive. Taylor Swift offers a dream package, and she does it brilliantly.a perfect balance between professionalism and intimacy. The biggest thing in music."</em><br /> <br /> The Guardian (London) <em>"Swift knows how to put on a show. Spectacular."</em><br /> <br /> The Daily Telegraph (Sydney, AU)-- <em>"Taylor Swift dazzles. Her musicality is undeniable."</em><br /> <br /> Last year, the North American portion of Taylors The RED Tour played to more than 1.36 million fans over 66 shows (including 13 stadium stops) in 47 cities in 29 states and 3 provinces spanning 6 months. Also in 2013, Taylor took her 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. The tour has already visited Europe for six sold-out shows in 2014.<br /> <br /> Taylor Swift, who writes all of her own songs, is a seven-time GRAMMY winner, and is the youngest winner in history of the music industrys highest honor, the GRAMMY Award for Album of the Year. She is the #1 digital music artist of all time, the only female artist in music history (and just the fourth artist ever) to twice have an album hit the 1 million first-week sales figure, and is the first artist since the Beatles (and the only female artist in history) to log six or more weeks at #1 with three consecutive studio albums. Taylor has an album on Rolling Stones prestigious The 50 Greatest Albums of All Time (by women) list, Time magazine has named her one of the 100 Most Influential people in the world, and she is Billboards youngest-ever Woman of the Year. Taylor, who is signed to Big Machine Records, has career record sales in excess of 26 million albums and 75 million song downloads worldwide, and has had singles top both the country and pop radio charts around the globe.<br /> <br /> Taylors album RED, released just over a year ago on Big Machine Records, has sold more than 6 million copies worldwide to date, including 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. Taylor is the only female artist in music history (and just the fourth artist ever) to twice have an album (2012s RED and 2010s Speak Now) hit the 1 million first-week sales figure.

Seeing Taylor Swift live in 2013 is seeing a maestro at the top of her or anyones game. No other pop auteur can touch her right now for emotional excess or musical reach. Red [is] the slickest, smartest and just plain best mega-pop statement of our time. Seeing Taylor onstage now is seeing....total commitment, total fan fervor, total connection between audience and performer. A true arena-rock goddess at an amazing peak.<br /> <br /> <em><strong>The New York Times</strong></em> -- A king-size spectacle, [whose] juxtapositions have power, one theatrical scene after the next. Taylor Swift off-script is very much like Taylor Swift on-script: not just the brains of the operation, but the brawn, too, the unflappable force that ensures stuck landings. Ms. Swifts voice is stronger than its ever been, and also sturdier.she sang vividly from behind a piano, show[ing] credible dark emotion.<br /> <br /> <em><strong>The Times (London)</strong></em> -- Impressive. Taylor Swift offers a dream package, and she does it brilliantly.a perfect balance between professionalism and intimacy. The biggest thing in music.<br /> <br /> <em><strong>The Guardian (London)</strong></em> Swift knows how to put on a show. Spectacular.<br /> <br /> <em><strong>The Daily Telegraph (Sydney, AU) </strong></em>-- "Taylor Swift dazzles. Her musicality is undeniable.<br /> <br /> Last year, the North American portion of Taylors The RED Tour played to more than 1.36 million fans over 66 shows (including 13 stadium stops) in 47 cities in 29 states and 3 provinces spanning 6 months. Also in 2013, Taylor took her 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. The tour has already visited Europe for six sold-out shows in 2014.<br /> <br /> Taylor Swift, who writes all of her own songs, is a seven-time GRAMMY winner, and is the youngest winner in history of the music industrys highest honor, the GRAMMY Award for Album of the Year. She is the #1 digital music artist of all time, the only female artist in music history (and just the fourth artist ever) to twice have an album hit the 1 million first-week sales figure, and is the first artist since the Beatles (and the only female artist in history) to log six or more weeks at #1 with three consecutive studio albums. Taylor has an album on Rolling Stones prestigious The 50 Greatest Albums of All Time (by women) list, Time magazine has named her one of the 100 Most Influential people in the world, and she is Billboards youngest-ever Woman of the Year. Taylor, who is signed to Big Machine Records, has career record sales in excess of 26 million albums and 75 million song downloads worldwide, and has had singles top both the country and pop radio charts around the globe.<br /> <br /> Taylor Swift The RED Tour Shanghai<br /> May 30, 2014<br /> Shanghai Mercedes-Benz Arena<br /> Ticket Prices: RMB 2280/1580/1280/980/680/480<br /> Ticketing: 400-610-3721, Damai.cn<br /> English: <a href="http://smartshanghai.com" target="_blank">smartshanghai.com</a></p> <p>From <a href="http://taylorswift.com/">taylorswift.com</a></p>Tue, 25 Mar 2014 19:00:00 -0700http://taylorswift.com/news/205493Taylor Wins Two CMC Music Awards!<br /><img src="http://groundctrl.s3.amazonaws.com/clients/taylorswift/media/05/12/images/assets/medium.nJJVDkHIJSUBJvqZRJKb0EMMVOwUAFxbJBGpirxXWRI.png" /><br /><p>Taylor took home TWO awards for CMC Music Awards including International Artist and International Music Video for "Highway Dont Care" with Tim McGraw and Keith Urban!</p> <p>From <a href="http://taylorswift.com/">taylorswift.com</a></p>Fri, 14 Mar 2014 12:37:00 -0700http://taylorswift.com/news/204863Taylor nominated for TWO Kids' Choice Awards!<br /><img src="http://groundctrl.s3.amazonaws.com/clients/taylorswift/media/04/01/images/assets/medium.g83JqIeIrVnwSRnhXLebamx2O3sg0IYxGuZSiUwPIyc.png" /><br /><p>Congratulations to Taylor on her TWO Nickelodeon Kids Choice Awards nominations for Favorite Female Singer and Favorite Song for "I Knew You Were Trouble!" </p> <p>Fans can vote unlimited times!

Seeing Taylor Swift live in 2013 is seeing a maestro at the top of her or anyones game. No other pop auteur can touch her right now for emotional excess or musical reach.<em> Red</em> [is] the slickest, smartest and just plain best mega-pop statement of our time. Seeing Taylor onstage now is seeing....total commitment, total fan fervor, total connection between audience and performer. A true arena-rock goddess at an amazing peak.</p> <p><strong><em>The New York Times</em></strong><strong><em> --</em></strong> A king-size spectacle, [whose] juxtapositions have power, one theatrical scene after the next. Taylor Swift off-script is very much like Taylor Swift on-script: not just the brains of the operation, but the brawn, too, the unflappable force that ensures stuck landings. Ms. Swifts voice is stronger than its ever been, and also sturdier.she sang vividly from behind a piano, show[ing] credible dark emotion.</p> <p><strong><em>The Times (London) --</em></strong> Impressive. Taylor Swift offers a dream package, and she does it brilliantly.a perfect balance between professionalism and intimacy. The biggest thing in music.</p> <p><strong><em>The Guardian (London)</em></strong> Swift knows how to put on a show.

The North American portion of THE RED TOUR saw Taylor play to more than 1.36 million fans over 66 shows (including 13 stadium stops) in 47 cities in 29 states and 3 provinces. On a number of these nights Taylor was notably joined on stage by some very special guests for an array of show-stopping collaborations from Jennifer Lopez and Ellie Goulding at Staples Center in LA through to Carly Simon at Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, Mass.</div> <div></div> <div>Taylors THE RED TOUR performance features two multi-level stages, elaborate costumes, dancers, aerialists and numerous changing sets, giving everyone in the venue an excellent seat. Taylor plays electric guitar, banjo, piano and acoustic guitar during the show, and her set features numerous songs from her record breaking album, RED, in addition to new takes on several fan favourites.</div> <div></div> <div>This November will see Taylor take THE RED TOUR to Australia and New Zealand, where she will become the first solo female artist in 20 years to undertake a national stadium tour of Australia, with the last being Madonnas Girlie Show tour in 1993.</div> <div></div> <div>Taylors fourth studio album, RED, reached no 1 at iTunes in over 50 countries around the globe. RED has sold over half a million copies and spawned 4 top 10 singles in the UK alone. In the US, RED is certified 4 x Platinum, while worldwide it has sold in excess of 6 million. With RED Taylor becomes the first artist since the Beatles (and the only female artist in history) to log six or more weeks at no. 1 in the US charts with three consecutive studio albums.</div> <div></div> <div>Described by The Times as a rare talent, Taylor Swift is one of the top 5 selling digital music artists worldwide, and is the top-selling digital artist in country music history. At only 23 years old, she has already had career record sales in excess of 26 million albums and 75 million song downloads worldwide. Each of Swifts four studio albums has sold in excess of 5 million copies worldwide while her two most recent albums are two of only 18 albums in the entire history of music to sell more than 1 million copies in a single week. Taylor recently received two new entries into the 2014 book of Guinness World Records, earning the title of fastest selling digital single for We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together and for being the first solo female with two one-million selling weeks on the US album chart.</div> <div></div> </div> <p></p> <p>From <a href="http://taylorswift.com/">taylorswift.com</a></p>Mon, 21 Oct 2013 02:57:00 -0700http://taylorswift.com/news/185203Taylor Swift to Perform CMA Awards with Special Guests!<br /><img src="http://groundctrl.s3.amazonaws.com/clients/taylorswift/media/02/06/images/assets/medium.7NxBUbyJjgdQ1JSgDqVZszo-2JhnspfbkflvW1K82B8.jpg" /><br /><p itemprop="articleBody" style="padding: 0px; margin: 0px 0px 22px; color: rgb(51, 51, 51); font-family: proxima-nova, arial, sans-serif; font-size: 15px; line-height: 17px; background-color: rgb(255, 255, 255);">Taylor Swift has gathered an all-star band for her appearance on next months Country Music Association Awards.

Over the course of the weeks shows she played to capacity crowds and earned rave reviews, impressing some of the nations toughest critics.</div> <div></div> <div>Rolling Stone -- Seeing Taylor Swift live in 2013 is seeing a maestro at the top of her or anyones game. No other pop auteur can touch her right now for emotional excess or musical reach. Red [is] the slickest, smartest and just plain best mega-pop statement of our time. Seeing Taylor onstage now is seeing....total commitment, total fan fervor, total connection between audience and performer. A true arena-rock goddess at an amazing peak.</div> <div></div> <div>The New York Times -- A king-size spectacle, [whose] juxtapositions have power, one theatrical scene after the next. Taylor Swift off-script is very much like Taylor Swift on-script: not just the brains of the operation, but the brawn, too, the unflappable force that ensures stuck landings. Ms. Swifts voice is stronger than its ever been, and also sturdier.she sang vividly from behind a piano, show[ing] credible dark emotion.</div> <div></div> <div>The New York Post -- Swift proves her chops. [Her] blossoming confidence was on show in all its multifaceted glory last night at the Prudential Center in Newark. More than a mere pop concert through her various costume changes, choreographed set pieces and even the odd magic trick, [Swift] has created something closer to a giant musical carnival. Almost as impressive is Swifts power and versatility as a musician. It was apparent from the start.no matter what she did or where she went, Swifts vocals never seemed to waver.</div> <div></div> <div>The Village Voice -- Taylor Swift was born to entertain. Swift remains genuine.which speaks further to her endless appealing nature as a performer.</div> <div></div> <div>Newsday -- Swift is truly amazing.. she created a personal, poignant connection with a sea of 18,000 fans. She deserves credit for actually singing super-popular songs she actually wrote surrounded by a fantastical stage set-up that she helped design. Emotionally intensifieds singing voice is goodher writing voice is distinctive, powerful and incredibly well trained.</div> <div></div> <div>Newark Star-Ledger -- Taylor Swift is fully formed, and at the peak of her powers. [She is] the worlds greatest pop star. Its 2013; its her day.
