Taylor Swift announces 2020 tour
Taylor Swift will embark on tour once more in summer 2020, with a run of European festival dates, as well as South and North American shows.
The tour announcement comes after the release of Swift’s latest album Lover last month.
The singer kicks off her international tour with a headline slot at one-day Werchter Boutique in Belgium on 20 June, before playing the Waldbühne amphitheatre in Berlin (22,290-cap.), Oslo Sommertid festival in Norway (55,000-cap.), Denmark’s Roskilde festival (70,000-cap.), Open’er in Poland (60,000-cap.), Festival de Nîmes in France (24,000-cap.) and Portugal’s Nos Alive (55,000-cap.).
“I want to go to some places I haven’t been and play festivals. Where we didn’t have festivals, we made some. Introducing, Lover Fest East and West!”
Swift will then cross the Atlantic a show at the 55,000-capacity Allianz Parque in São Paulo, Brazil, ahead of four US shows as part of her newly created Lover Fest. Lover Fest West will take place at Los Angeles’ 100,000-capacity SoFi Stadium, whereas Lover Fest East will be held at Foxborough, Massachusetts’ Gillette Stadium (66,829-cap.).
“I want to perform [Lover] in a way that feels authentic,” writes Swift on Twitter. “I want to go to some places I haven’t been and play festivals. Where we didn’t have festivals, we made some. Introducing, Lover Fest East and West!”
The singer’s 2018 Reputation world tour was the highest-grossing US tour in history, selling over two million tickets for 38 shows for a total of US$266.1 million.
