Seven-time GRAMMY winner Taylor Swift, who has spent her summer headlining sold-out stadiums and arenas in North America on The Red Tour, announces today that she will be painting London RED in February 2014 with three dates at London’s The O2.
London’s The O2 will host Taylor Swift’s blockbuster The Red Tour on 1st, 2nd and 4th February 2014. Tickets will be priced from £37.50. Tickets will be available to purchase from 9am on Friday 4th October via AXS.com, ticketmaster.co.uk, gigsandtours.com and by phone on 08448 24 48 24. Exclusive VIP Experiences and packages are also available.
Taylor, dubbed ‘a true arena-rock goddess’ (a strange description – Ed) by Rolling Stone, recently wrapped up the US leg of The Red Tour with three consecutive sold-out nights at the Bridgestone Arena in her hometown of Nashville.
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.
No-one can deny the pop sensation isn’t talented; 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.
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 Madonna’s Girlie Show tour in 1993.
Massive success with Red
Taylor’s fourth studio album, Red, reached number one at iTunes in over 50 countries around the globe. Red has sold over half a million copies and spawned four top ten singles in the UK alone.
In the US, Red is certified 4 x Platinum, while worldwide it has sold in excess of 5.8 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 number one in the US charts with three consecutive studio albums.
Described by The Times as a ‘rare talent’, Taylor Swift is one of the top five 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.
