Taylor Swift Announces New Zealand Show

International superstar Taylor Swift is heading down under with her blockbuster The Red Tour.

The 7-time Grammy winner’s The Red Tour performance features two multi-level stages, elaborate costumes, dancers, aerialists and changing sets. In a concert event that provides non-stop action and state of the art technology, Taylor constantly moves around the venue and uses different stages, giving every audience member a great seat.

Taylor plays electric guitar, banjo, piano and acoustic guitar and changes costumes 10 times over the course of the evening. Her set features several songs from her record-breaking Red album, as well as new takes on several other fan favourites.

Taylor Swift, who writes all of her own songs, is a seven-time Grammy winner, and is the youngest winner in history of the music industry’s highest honor, the Grammy Award for Album of the Year. She is the only female artist in music history (and just the fourth artist ever) to twice have an album hit the 1 million first-week sales figure, and is the first artist since the Beatles (and the only female artist in history) to log six or more weeks at #1 with three consecutive studio albums. 

Taylor has an album on Rolling Stone’s prestigious The 50 Greatest Albums of All Time (by women) list, Time magazine has named her one of the 100 Most Influential people in the world, and she is Billboard’s youngest-ever Woman of the Year. Taylor has career record sales in excess of 26 million albums and 75 million song downloads worldwide, and has had singles top both the country and pop radio charts around the globe.
