Hello Taylor Nation!

Here at the Swift Agency, still a guy hoping for some sunshine today when nothing but snow is expected, we’re not above correcting our mistakes. I rely on other sources to do what I do, so I try to pick reliable ones. Despite our best efforts, information such as upcoming scheduled performances can change.

According to Country Air Check‘s latest newsletter, the Princess in Red will have Joel Crouse, Brett Eldredge, Florida Georgia Line and Casey James as opening acts on the RED Tour.

  • Florida Georgia Line will be opening for 7 shows. You can find out their tour schedule here. No RED Tour dates added yet.
  • Casey James will be opening for 14 shows. You can find out his tour schedule here. No RED Tour dates added yet.

Update: ABC News Radio has the specifics about which opener will be appearing on which concert date. Read here.

Ed Sheeran has already been announced as the main opener for all tour stops. For RED’s nine stadium dates, Austin Mahone will be added to the lineup. The RED tour includes so far 66 shows in 47 cities, with 9 of them being stadium concerts.

The nine stadiums are Detroit’s Ford Field (May 4), Dallas’s Cowboys Stadium (May 25), Toronto’s Rogers Centre (June 14 & 15), Winnipeg’s Investors’ Group Field (June 22), Vancouver’s BC Place Stadium (June 29), Pittsburgh’s Heinz Field (July 6 & 7), Philadelphia’s Lincoln Financial Field, Foxborough (July 19 & 20), Massachusetts’ Gillette Stadium (July 26 & 27) and Chicago’s Soldier Field (August 10).

TellyMix reports Taylor Swift will perform on Let’s Dance 2013 for Comedy Relief on March 9 instead of March 2 as LostInTV.com previously reported. This is supposedly her recorded performance from February 22. She’s not participating in the dancing contest (nobody wants to be more wrong about this than me). This is just a performance.

The Enchantress spoke to UK radio station Capital FM‘s Max in a recent interview. They discussed her BRITs performance and her recent singles WANEGBT and IKYWT. You can listen in to her interview here. Thanks to Thomas for the heads up.

  1. Watching the Speak Now – tour right now (instead of studying… Yeah.), and can’t help thinking that 1.) Our little girl is all grown up! 2.) That the RED tour is going to be a MASSIVE production 3.) That I hope she will include som acustic numbers in between all the musical theatre – stuff 😉
    4.) I CAN’T WAIT!

    Hey again, if you’re not fed up already I have another link for you 🙂 This one I actually saw right now on TC, posted by “Charlotte05”, so if you have any connection to TC she is the one who should get the credit :p Just wanted you to post it so it could reach more fans 🙂 It’s Taylors performance from the private boat party in Paris, full half hour with talking inbetween.

      As far as I know, no. Just checked and both Ticketmaster and TaylorSwift.com only have July 6 at Heinz Field for Pittsburgh.
