Taylor Swift to open 2018 Australian tour at Perth Stadium

Tickets for Taylor Swift's Croke Park date next year go on general sale this morning at 9am

Just days after the announcement of nine more dates in the U.K, Ireland and United States, Live Nation on Monday (Dec. 4) announced Swift will open her Australia tour October 19 at Perth's Optus Stadium, then head to open-air venues in Melbourne, Sydney, and Brisbane before hopping across the Tasman for a single show November 9 at Auckland's Mt Smart Stadium.

Swift sold out two shows in Adelaide during her 1989 World Tour, which was the highest grossing concert event in 2015, raking in more than $250 million.

Subscribers to Swift's official website will have the opportunity to purchase tickets early on Tuesday 12 December through to Wednesday 13 December. However, Friday (Dec. 1st) marked the project's distribution to major applications, and should contribute a great deal to a spike in streaming and could likely see Taylor Swift finding her home at the top of the Billboard Hot 200 yet again in the coming week.

Reputation was the biggest selling album of 2017 and soared to #1 in over 111 countries on iTunes' sales charts at its release. It was her fourth album to reach number one in the New Zealand album charts.
