Taylor Swift Announces 2013 Red Tour, Named Grammy Nomination Special Co-Host
October 29, 2012

Taylor Swift has announced a North American tour of stadiums and arenas for 2013, in support of her new album Red. Swift announced the tour during the ABC primetime special All Access Nashville with Katie Couric – A Special Edition of 20/20.

On the Red Tour, Swift will play 58 shows in 45 cities in 29 states and three provinces in 2013. The tour will kick-off on March 13 in Omaha and continue through September. British singer/songwriter Ed Sheeran, who duets with Swift on the Red tune "Everything Has Changed," will open all dates.

The tour will include nine stadiums – Detroit’s Ford Field, Dallas’s Cowboys Stadium, Toronto’s Rogers Centre, Winnipeg’s Investors’ Group Field, Vancouver’s BC Place Stadium, Pittsburgh’s Heinz Field, Philadelphia’s Lincoln Financial Field, Foxborough, MA’s Gillette Stadium and Chicago’s Soldier Field.

"I didn’t think I could be any more excited about my Red album, but then I start thinking about how I’m going to put the new show together for The Red Tour," says Swift. "I have so many ideas about how to really bring this music to life, and I can’t wait to share the new show with all my fans!"

Red is expected to easily debut at #1 on the SoundScan sales chart this week, surpassing one million units sold with the best-selling debut week of any album in 2012. The album already debuted at #1 in the UK, giving Swift her first #1 album in the UK.

It was also announced today that Swift will co-host the annual Grammy nominations special, which will air Wednesday, December 5 at 10 p.m. ET on CBS. Swift and LL Cool J will co-host The Grammy Nominations Concert Live!! - Countdown To Music's Biggest Night, live from Nashville. Maroon 5 and Luke Bryan will perform on the hour-long show.
