Taylor Swift announces US tour for 2020 – and it hits only two cities.
Taylor Swift was expected to go on tour in 2020 after this year’s release of “Lover”, as she traditionally did in the year after the release of an album. Swift has announced her concert line-up for next year – but it only contains four US dates.
It will perform from July 25th to 26th at the SoFi Stadium in Los Angeles, as the first attraction of any kind at the brand new NFL Stadium, where the Rams and Chargers will play afterward. On the following weekend, July 31 and August 1, Swift’s show changeover will take place at Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, Massachusetts.
The shows are referred to as “their only concert dates in the USA in 2020” and as “Lover Fest West” and “Lover Fest East”.
Swift simultaneously announced eight more international shows – and when it comes to the global market, “more British and international dates and festivals will be announced shortly,” according to a press release.
The music industry was already full of speculation on Tuesday morning about why Swift’s American data is so limited and whether it plans to reach the rest of the US in 2021 or maybe just move on to the next album cycle.
Anyway, the super limited run here means that fans from all over the country will be fighting to get tickets for the four shows in L.A. and Massachusetts. The public sale is October 17th. As a member of Capital One, cardholders will be able to purchase tickets from 15 to 16 October, which could potentially lead to a rush to register with this credit company.
Fans who have signed up for the Taylor Swift Tix Verified Fans Program for their 2018 Reputation Tour will be interested in tickets even earlier on October 14 and can now start RSVP to get Preferred Presale Access, an early place in line. New “verified fans” can register for the service on September 19 and sit behind the existing ones in a virtual line. It is expected that, as is usual with a show with so many different selling times, the allocation of tickets for each individual show will be withheld so that the concerts will not be sold out before the general selling date. Ticket prices have not been announced.
