Taylor Swift coming to the Tampa Bay Times Forum in Tampa
Taylor Swift can't get much bigger in the country world. So with her new album Red, she's gunning to be the biggest pop star on the planet, too. Having a No. 1 pop single like We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together doesn't hurt.
Next year, Swift will embark on a massive spring and summer arena tour -- and she'll hit the Tampa Bay Times Forum on April 20. (That's one day after Rihanna plays the Forum. Talk about a crazy 24 hours on Channelside Drive.)
Tickets are $29.50-$84.50, and they'll go on sale at 10 a.m. Nov. 16. Do not be surprised if this one sells out. Click here for details. (You can double your Taylor pleasure, if you so desire, by checking her out on April 12 at the Amway Center in Orlando.)
As if to cement her transition from country to pop, Swift has selected British singer-songwriter (and burgeoning teenybopper heartthrob on this side of the Atlantic) Ed Sheeran to open the tour. Sheeran, you'll recall, is already on his way to Tampa -- he'll perform at the 93.3-FLZ Jingle Ball on Dec. 9 at the Forum.
