Taylor Swift To "Dazzle" On Upcoming Trek
November 13, 2012

While Taylor Swift's Red album is flying off of store shelves, the singer is thinking about ways to bring the new songs to life on tour. It has already been announced that her 58-date Red trek will begin on March 13 in Omaha with tickets going on sale November 16, and now Swift wants to find ways to outdo herself.

"I like for it to be big -- as big as possible," the singer/songwriter told Billboard.com. "If we can make a show that dazzles people more than the last tour, then I'll have done my job in the right way. I just want to be able, in this economy, to make a show that for fans is definitely a guarantee that they will be entertained enough to warrant them leaving their house, spending their evening with me, parking their car, waiting in line, maybe buy a T-shirt. I want them to be so happy that they decided to spend their time with me -- I think that's my biggest objective. And the element of surprise is still really important in a concert and showing scenes and images and visuals that are magical. I really like to take people to a different world and change things up constantly, never showing them too much of the same thing too many times in a row."

Swift also said fans will play a role in determining the setlist. "Of course, you know the tour will be a big representation of this record," she added. "I'm so excited to see what songs the fans like the most and which ones jump to the forefront, because that's the first step. We always see which songs are really the passionate songs and the ones the fans are freaking out over the most, and those are the ones that are definitely in the set list. I can't wait for that."

In the meantime, Swift is lined up for performances on The X Factor on November 15, the American Music Awards on November 18, and she's co-hosting The Grammy Nominations Concert Live!! -- Countdown to Music's Biggest Night on December 5. Swift will also perform in New York City's Times Square as part of Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin' Eve, and she recently recorded a promo spot for MTV's Restore The Shore fundraising efforts to help victims of Hurricane Sandy. A Restore The Shore telethon will air this Thursday, November 15 at 11 p.m. ET.

"As a kid, I spent my summers at the Shore, and I have so many amazing memories for that time in my life," Swift says in the MTV spot. "So I'm sending all my love and support to all the people in New Jersey who suffered through Hurricane Sandy. It's time to restore the Shore."
