6-Time Grammy Winner Taylor Swift Returns to PNC Arena September 13

(RALEIGH, NC) – Taylor Swift announced that she will launch a North American stadium and arena tour in early 2013 in support of her blockbuster new album, “RED” that will include a stop at PNC Arena on September 13. Taylor made the special announcement in partnership with ABC’s primetime TV special “All Access Nashville with Katie Couric – A Special Edition of 20/20.” Watch the announcement here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YoJj-5nAGpM. “RED” was released to widespread worldwide critical acclaim and topped the iTunes album sales charts in 40 countries.

Tickets for PNC Arena go on sale Friday, Dec. 14 at 10 a.m. at the PNC Arena box office, all Ticketmaster outlets, charge by phone 800-745-3000 and online at Ticketmaster.com.

On The RED Tour, Taylor is currently slated to headline 62 shows in 45 cities in 29 states and 3 provinces in 2013. The tour will kick-off on March 13 inOmaha, Nebraska and continue through September. Acclaimed singer/songwriter Ed Sheeran, whose duet with Taylor from her “RED” album, “Everything Has Changed,” has already reached the #1 position atop iTunes all-genre Top Songs chart, will be a special guest on all of the shows on the tour.

The 2013 dates will include eleven stadiums – Detroit’s Ford Field, Dallas’s Cowboys Stadium, Toronto’s Rogers Centre (2 shows), Winnipeg’s Investors Group Field, Vancouver’s BC Place Stadium, Pittsburgh’s Heinz Field, Philadelphia’s Lincoln Financial Field, Foxborough, Mass.’s Gillette Stadium (2 shows) and Chicago’s Soldier Field.

The RED Tour will be produced and promoted by The Messina Group (TMG). At Taylor’s request every show will include tickets priced at under $50. TMG is a partner of AEG Live, one of the top live entertainment companies in the world, which produces world tours featuring internationally renowned artists and regional concerts and festivals.

Taylor’s RED Tour is set to be one of the most-anticipated musical events of 2013, as Taylor’s live shows are renowned worldwide for bringing her music to life with what Variety has dubbed “supreme spectacle” and Billboard has hailed as an “overwhelming experience…that blended the pacing, the music and the artist’s personality in a way that transfixed.” During the course of every show, Taylor plays a variety of instruments and performs her biggest hits and fan favorites from her four Big Machine Records albums.

“I didn’t think I could be any more excited about my RED album, but then I start thinking about how I’m going to put the new show together for The RED Tour,” says Taylor. “I have so many ideas about how to really bring this music to life, and I can’t wait to share the new show with all my fans!”

Taylor Swift is a six-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. Her fourth studio album, “RED,” was recently released, and has garnering widespread critical acclaim and is setting new sales records. Her 2010 album, “Speak Now,” was lauded on Rolling Stone’s prestigious The 50 Greatest Albums of All Time (by women) list, and Time magazine has named Taylor one of the 100 most influential people in the world.

Two-time BRIT Award winning singer/songwriter Ed Sheeran has become one of the biggest musical success stories in the UK over the past year and is already a fast-rising star in the U.S. Sheeran’s debut single, “The A Team,” was Britain’s highest-charting, biggest-selling debut single of 2011; his debut album, “+”, entered the UK Albums Chart at #1 and has since been certified 5x-platinum.  “+” debuted at #5 on the Billboard 200 upon its stateside release via Elektra Records this past summer, with “The A Team” continuing to climb the radio charts.
