News: Taylor Swift Confirms Aussie Leg Of ‘The 1989 World Tour’

2 min read

(AUS) Fresh from selling four million copies worldwide of latest album 1989, global superstar Taylor Swift has confirmed the Australian leg of her massive The 1989 World Tour will visit Brisbane, Sydney, Adelaide and Melbourne in November/December 2015 with special guest Vance Joy.

Notably, Swift will be the first female solo artist to play stadiums on back-to-back Australian tours, following the hugely successful The Red Tour of summer 2014. Countless records have been made and broken by the 24-year-old international superstar since the release of her fifth, and most celebrated, studio album 1989.

Swift is the only artist in history to have three albums debut with more than a million copies sold in their first week, with 1989 joining fellow multi-platinum selling albums Speak Now (2010) and Red (2012). The album became Australia’s fastest-selling album of 2014 in less than four days and has topped the US album charts for the third week in a row.

Lead single ‘Shake It Off’ and its successor ‘Blank Space’ have also earned Swift the dual achievements of being the only artist to have two #1 singles in the HOT 100 US charts in 2014.

At the 2014 American Music Awards last month, Swift became the first ever recipient of the Dick Clark Award for Excellence, given to an artist who achieves a ground breaking feat or creates a landmark work. This prestigious recognition honoured Taylor as the only artist to ever sale over 1 million albums release week for her albums Speak Now, RED and 1989.

The 1989 World Tour begins in Japan next May and includes 63 shows across eight countries and four continents.

In further exciting news Australia’s Vance Joy will extend his commitments on The 1989 World Tour to include his homeland. Already confirmed to tour with Taylor on the North American leg of The 1989 World Tour, this latest announcement caps off a massive 18 months for Melbourne born Vance Joy. Kicking off the year with the #1 song in Triple J’s Hottest 100 with Riptide, debuting at #1 on the ARIA Album Chart with ‘Dream Your Life Away’, selling 5 x Platinum for single ‘Riptide’ and Gold for ‘Mess Is Mine’, new single ‘First Time’ continues to showcase Joy’s versatility as an artist.
