Turns out it’s not just tweens and teens that flock to the blonde-headed country/pop singer. Taylor Swift sold out Shanghai’s Mercedes-Benz Arena in one minute, making it the fastest ticket on-sale in Chinese history.
Seven-time GRAMMY® winner Taylor Swift announced last month that in response to strong fan demand she would take her critically-acclaimed The RED Tour to Asia this summer. Fan demand true, the seven Asian dates sold out in record speeds and broke history books with the fastest ticket on-sale in Chinese history. The RED Tour is promoted by AEG Live Asia.
Last year, the North American portion of Taylor’s The RED Tour played to more than 1.36 million fans over 66 shows (including 13 stadium stops) in 47 cities in 29 states and 3 provinces spanning 6 months. Also in 2013, Taylor took her RED Tour Down Under — performing sold out stadium shows in Australia (as well as arena dates in New Zealand), becoming the first solo female artist in twenty years to undertake a national stadium concert tour of Australia. The tour has already visited Europe for six sold-out shows in 2014.
