Taylor Swift fans have woken to good news this morning with the popstar announcing she is returning Down Under in 2018.
Reputation, Number Seven on Rolling Stone's 50 Best Albums of 2017 list, remained atop the Billboard 200 despite being unavailable on streaming services until December 1st; Reputation's streaming equivalent albums, or SEAs, will likely give the album a huge boost on next week's charts.
The live shows will be Swift's first in Australia since she brought her 1989 World Tour Down Under in 2015.
Tickets for the show go on sale at 12pm on December 15, but subscribers to Swift's site will have an opportunity to get in early with an exclusive presale beginning at 12pm on December 12. It features the hits "Ready for It?" and "Look What You Made Me Do".
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.
The gigs next summer will be Swift's first time playing Ireland since her sell-out at the 3Arena in 2015.
