AT&T Stadium. Good luck finding a “Blank Space” in this crowd. She’s come a long way since releasing her self-titled debut album in 2006 at just 17 years old. She launched her career first as a country-singing sweet- heart, but America has been able to watch her develop into so much more. Today at 25, Forbes magazine has ranked her as one of the “100 Most Powerful Women” in its 2015 list, and it’s not difficult to see why. Seven Grammy Awards. Twenty-two Billboard Music Awards. Eleven Country Music Association Awards. Eight Academy of Country Music Awards. And having sold more than 40 million albums worldwide, she’s already one of the best-selling artists of all time. Taylor Swift continues to evolve and has garnered even more fans along the way with the release of her fifth studio album, 1989, named after her birth year. Known for her personal lyrics, Swift co- wrote every song on this album, but she has certainly made a switch from her classic country sound. Feel free to leave the cowboy boots at home for The 1989 World Tour, a pop-infused event that focuses on her most recent musical achievements.
Bouncing from Tokyo to Sydney and everywhere in between, the tour offers audiences a fresh perspective at each new stop. Expect songs from Swift’s most recent album, along with hits like “Love Story,” lots of costume changes, incredible lighting and props and high-energy fun for all ages. And if you’re a fan of surprises, look out for special guest appearances. So far the tour has seen acts like Walk the Moon, The Weeknd, Sam Hunt, Nick Jonas, Lorde and Andy Grammer take the stage, and there’s no telling who will join her in Arlington. One thing’s for sure – we can’t wait to find out.
