UPDATE: Taylor Swift coming to the St. Pete Times Forum in Tampa
According to CMT, Pollstar and a press release, Swift has booked a date at Tampa's St. Pete Times Forum on Nov. 12. Australian singer Adam Brand will open the show. There's no official confirmation from her website or the Forum, but it is our understanding that the show will in fact happen.
There's no word on tickets yet, but we'll definitely update you when we get the info.
***UPDATE*** Taylor Swift tickets go onsale April 8 for $25, $59.50 and $69.50. Click here for details.
This does pose an unexpected question, though: If Taylor Swift is coming to the Forum on Nov. 12, what's going to happen with the long-rumored Blue Collar Comedy Tour show that was supposed to come to the Forum that same day?
For months, both Jeff Foxworthy and Bill Engvall have the Forum listed on their respective calendars for Nov. 12, and some sites have reported that Larry The Cable Guy is on the bill, too. But that date was never confirmed. Now we're hearing that the Blue Collar Comedy show might take place on Sept. 30 instead.
Again, neither show has been officially announced by the Forum. But we'll let you know if that changes.
