Taylor Swift sells out fast

Friday, October 23, 2009 – The first tickets for Taylor Swift's Fearless 2010 Tour went on sale this morning, and all tickets for the 15 shows put on sale were gone within minutes, including 4 shows in the New York area that all sold out in 2 minutes.

The sold out shows include arenas in Newark (2 shows), Uniondale, NY (2 shows), Philadelphia (2 shows), Houston (2 shows), Detroit (2 shows), Washington DC, Dallas, Kansas City, Austin, and Corpus Christi.

Swift is on the road for 37 shows in 29 cities in 22 states and provinces in the U.S. and Canada, plus 7 dates in Australia. Kellie Pickler will be the featured artist on all of the North American dates, and Gloriana returns to open all of the shows.

Every available seat in Madison Square Garden in just 60 seconds, according to Swift's publicist.

Apparently, thousands of people who bought tickets may not be attending the shows, however. On eBay this afternoon, more than 1,500 auctions were listed for tickets for Swift shows. The top priced tickets were $8,100 for 2 tickets to a show in Corpus Christi, Texas on March 12, 2010.

Swift will be on television on Oct. 27 on Dancing with the Stars (ABC) and on Oct. 29 on The Ellen Degeneres Show (syndicated).

The biggest difference is that Swift's singing, spotty on previous releases and live performances, is far far superior here. Swift wrote all 14 songs here, which like her other albums tend to deal with relationships that have gone south. Swift's songwriting always has been one of her strengths, and that continues to be the case here - both lyrically and musically. Put simply, Swift knows a lot about penning ...
CD review - Fearless Taylor Swift took the county world by storm with her huge selling debut and its five hit singles. With a huge marketing push and myspace, Swift was on her way. Kind of like an Avril Lavigne for the teen female country set. Sophomore slump? There's no indication of that. Swift once again writes her material - all 13 songs here with help sometimes from Liz Rose, Colbie Caillat and John Rich. Swift writes of what she knows about - relationships and teen love come and gone in songs speak to her fans. ...
