Three albums later and Taylor Swift’s still the hottest ticket in town.
Shh! Don’t tell Kanye.
Tickets for dates on Taylor’s upcoming Speak Now Tour are selling out faster than Swifty fans can update their browsers. The singer sold out two shows at the Staples Center in Los Angeles in two minutes and the 68,000-seat Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, Massachusetts, in five minutes, The Hollywood Reporter said this week. Seven more sell-outs followed, all on the heels of a record-breaking run for her third album Speak Now, which sold over a million copies in its first week of release, making the disc the best debut for an artist in five years.
Concert promoters and ticket vendors haven’t seen this much fan interest in a show since Hannah Montana’s 2007 Best of Both Worlds Tour. Taylor’s tour managers have added additional shows to the tour schedule to accommodate more fans. One more Taylor show has been added at Gillette Stadium on June 26 and the “Love Story” songstress will now take the stage at the Staples Center on Aug. 27 and Aug. 28.
The full Speak Now Tour is expected to touch down in 19 countries for 90 shows set to kick off in Singapore on Feb. 9.
