Tour Talk is my feature about concert dates coming up, with emphasis on sale and presale dates. However, there are some limitations here. I am not, by any extent, an official source of tour information. You can get official information at TaylorSwift.com. I compile the information for convenience, but it is subject to changes at any time by the official sources without warning. I don’t reveal presale codes. Like, ever. Whoever starts asking for them or announcing them on the comments gets a visit from the Ninja Department. I also don’t know the date and time in which presale emails will go out. Whenever possible, I’ll let you know but from previous experience they come out so close to the presale date that you should not rely on my announcement and check your emails instead. I will not add any presale/sale information for the VIP Packages.
