Taylor Swift announces world tour dates for 1989 including first Scottish date

Monday November 3, 2014

As Taylor Swift prepares to become the first artist since 2002 to sell more than 1.3million albums with her fifth record, 1989, the 24-year-old pop star has revealed her world tour dates for the album.

Taylor will include eight countries and four continents - North America, Europe, Australia, and Asia.

The UK leg of The 1989 World Tour will begin in Glasgow on 23 June, and will mark Taylor’s first ever live show in Scotland. The tour then moves to Manchester on 24 June before Taylor headlines the annual British Summer Time festival in Hyde Park on 27 June.

Earlier in 2014 Taylor bought the Red tour to the UK, selling out five dates at the London 02 arena.

1989 is on track to beat Eminem's The Eminem Song which in 2002 sold 1.322million records. Taylor will also become the first artist to ever sell over one-million records with three consecutive albums - Speak Now, Red, and 1989.
