Taylor Swift: Second Auckland Show Added for the Red Tour!

TAYLOR SWIFT
SECOND AUCKLAND SHOW ADDED
FOR THE RED TOUR!
PRE-SALE TICKETS AVAILABLE AT 4.30PM

Taylor Swift’s kiwi fans sent the web into a frenzy today snapping up all available pre-sale tickets in just minutes to her The Red Tour Auckland date on November 29. To meet the massive demand for tickets a second show for Saturday 30 November at Vector Arena was immediately added and tickets will be available in the pre-sale for the new date at 4.30pm. Tickets from both show 1 and show 2, in all price types, will also be available through the general public on-sale on Tuesday 21 May.

The 7-time GRAMMY winner and international superstar Taylor Swift last week announced she would be bringing THE RED TOUR to New Zealand and Australia. Australia and New Zealand are the first international markets outside of the USA to be announced for THE RED TOUR.

Taylor Swift’s THE RED TOUR performance features two multi-level stages, elaborate costumes, dancers, aerialists and changing sets. In a concert event that provides non-stop action and state of the art technology, Taylor constantly moves around the venue and uses different stages, giving every audience member a great seat. Taylor plays electric guitar, banjo, piano and acoustic guitar and changes costumes 10 times over the course of the evening. Her set features several songs from her record-breaking RED album, as well as new takes on several other fan favourites.

Taylor Swift’s THE RED TOUR is earning universally high praise from top critics:

Rolling Stone -- “Seeing Taylor Swift live in 2013 is seeing a maestro at the top of her or anyone's game. No other pop auteur can touch her right now for emotional excess or musical reach. Red [is] the slickest, smartest and just plain best mega-pop statement of our time. Seeing Taylor onstage now is seeing....total commitment, total fan fervor, total connection between audience and performer. A true arena-rock goddess at an amazing peak.”

The New York Times -- “A king-size spectacle, [whose] juxtapositions have power, one theatrical scene after the next. Taylor Swift off-script is very much like Taylor Swift on-script: not just the brains of the operation, but the brawn, too, the unflappable force that ensures stuck landings. Ms. Swift’s voice is stronger than it’s ever been, and also sturdier….she sang vividly from behind a piano, show[ing] credible dark emotion.”

The Village Voice -- “Taylor Swift was born to entertain. Swift remains genuine….which speaks further to her endless appealing nature as a performer.”

The Miami Herald – “Genuinely powerful. Swift seems to have made an astute transition to her new identity of self-determined young woman. Swift came across as sincere and open in a way that made her the modest but adored mistress of a girl-power mega church.”
The Atlanta Journal Constitution – “She’s supremely gifted…..For two hours T-Swizzle thoroughly charmed, entertained, and connected with the audience.”

Orlando Sentinel -- “Visually and musically, this was Swift’s most accomplished production yet.”
The North American portion of THE RED TOUR is currently playing 66 shows (including 13 stadium stops) in 47 cities in 29 states and 3 provinces spanning 6 months in 2013.

Taylor Swift, who writes all of her own songs, is a seven-time GRAMMY winner, and is the youngest winner in history of the music industry’s highest honor, the GRAMMY Award for Album of the Year. She is the only female artist in music history (and just the fourth artist ever) to twice have an album hit the 1 million first-week sales figure, and is the first artist since the Beatles (and the only female artist in history) to log six or more weeks at #1 with three consecutive studio albums. Taylor has an album on Rolling Stone’s prestigious The 50 Greatest Albums of All Time (by women) list, Time magazine has named her one of the 100 Most Influential people in the world, and she is Billboard’s youngest-ever Woman of the Year. Taylor has career record sales in excess of 26 million albums and 75 million song downloads worldwide, and has had singles top both the country and pop radio charts around the globe.

New Zealand fans will be treated to a top level production as seen by fans at Taylor’s indoor shows across the States. A very limited number of premium Pit tickets will be sold for each show, which will allow fans 16 years and over access to an exclusive standing area surrounded by Taylor’s stage. The Auckland shows will have GA Standing on the floor and fully reserved seating in the first and second elevation.

Pre-sale tickets are on sale via frontiertouring.com/taylorswift until Wednesday 15 May 3pm NZST (or earlier if pre-sale allocation is exhausted). General public tickets go on sale Tuesday 21 May at 9am NZST.
