The SPEAK NOW WORLD TOUR 2011 is one of the most-anticipated musical experiences of the year, as Taylor's live show is renowned for her incredibly high-energy theatrical presentation of graphics, sets and visual elements, all designed by Taylor herself. During each show, Taylor performs hit after hit from her three albums, including the chart-topping "Love Story," "You Belong With Me," "Fifteen," and "Mine." During the course of the show, Taylor plays several different guitars and has multiple wardrobe changes.
Taylor's 15-month, 107-date FEARLESS 2009 / 2010 Tour sold out arenas and stadiums in 88 cities in five countries spanning four continents, and Taylor is currently slated to play 85 shows in 18 countries on the SPEAK NOW WORLD TOUR 2011.
"Swift's fans don't just believe in her savvy songwriting and gracious, magnetic stage presence. They trust her as a peer," raved the Los Angeles Times. "And if the unerring pleasures of her set - and the crowd's Beatles-sized reactions - were any indication, they'll be trusting her for a long time."
"I'm so excited to go back out on tour again in 2011!" says Taylor. "The FEARLESS Tour was so much fun and even more unforgettable than I ever imagined, and I can't wait to get back out and play my new music from Speak Now! The fans have been so amazing, and I'm thrilled to play in new cities around the world and meet even more of my fans in 2011!"
Taylor Swift is a four-time GRAMMY winner, the top-selling digital artist in music history, has had singles top both the Country and Pop radio charts, and had the #1 best-selling album in any genre of music in 2009.
