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.

Tour talk: Is it killing you like it’s killing me? Presale starts Tuesday, November 30!

If you were to ask us when the Taylorswift.com presales start, the answer is simple: Tuesday, November 30 at 10:00am Eastern time. I’m making this announcement ahead of time thanks to Ticketmaster. Whether or not this will apply to all dates we will have to see, but this is the earliest that at least a few concert dates will be available.

Again, I’m going to remind you to check your email on Monday, November 29. Mark it on your Calendar.

Besides that, we’ve also got American Express presale dates which start earlier. As a matter of fact some started today, November 28.

Here at the Swift Agency, one person to blog it all and lose a few nights of sleep, we know it doesn’t take a ninja to grab a presale, but it certainly helps. The trick is there is more than one presale and that’s when it starts getting complicated. I’m going by the tour dates announced in Ticketmaster. I give you no guarantees that I can do this for every single date imaginable because, let’s face it, that goes a little beyond my reach:

  • June 25: Speak Now tour in Foxborough, Massachusetts at Gillette Stadium.
  • July 9: Speak Now tour in Atlanta, Georgia at Phillips Arena.
  • July 10: Speak Now tour in Atlanta, Georgia at Philips Arena..
  • August 23: Speak Now tour in Los Angeles, California at the Staples Center.
  • August 24: Speak Now tour in Los Angeles, California at the Staples Center.
  • September 1: Speak Now tour in San Jose, California at the HP Pavilion.
  • September 2: Speak Now tour in  San Jose, California at the HP Pavilion.

Each of this four locations has at least two presales if not three: One for American Express (they have a deal with Ticketmaster), one for Taylorswift.com, and optionally there’s one for the media. After that they have a sales date for the general public. So here we go:

Yes, some presales have started already if you are an American Express cardholder. Again, go to Ticketmaster for information and all dates. My guess is not all of them will start at the same time, but it’s very possible some will start as early as Tuesday, November 30 just because Taylor’s management likes to keep things tidy.

For my fellow Canadian Swifties in Montreal, Quebec, I am still only aware of the general sales date for December 4. However, Evenko did answer me back saying there would be two presales, one arranged by Evenko and one by the fan club (which would be the TaylorSwift.com one). I would get in both mailing lists if I were you.

Please check the Calendar for the latest updates and for official information, please consult Taylorswift.com.
