As Taylor Swift plans for this weekend’s final shows of her sold-out Fearless 2009 Tour, she revealed that she will extend the outing into 2010. She will kick off the Fearless 2010 Tour on February 4th in Brisbane, Australia and play five shows Down Under, presented by Michael Coppel Presents, before beginning her North American run on March 4th in Tampa, Florida. In 2010, she will headline 37 shows in 29 cities in the US and Canada. Tickets are set to go on sale later this month, starting at a reasonable $25.
Swift’s good friend Kellie Pickler and rising stars Gloriana have been part of the 2009 run and will continue on the 2010 tour. The outing, promoted in North America by The Messina Group/AEG Live, has been one of the year’s hottest tickets, with every show selling out within minutes. She sold out Madison Square Garden in one minute and the Los Angeles STAPLES center in just two minutes.
The 19-year-old is scheduled for a busy fall, including the release a CD/DVD set entitled Fearless Platinum Edition on October 27th. On November 11, she will vie for the Country Music Association’s prestigious Entertainer of the Year Award, as the category’s youngest ever nominee.
