Monday, March 7, 2011
– Taylor Swift kicked off the European leg of her Speak Now World Tour in Brussels, Belgium last night.
Swift started the 90-minute show with Sparks Fly at the Forest National Arena. Swift performed on two different stages, playing several different acoustic and electric guitars, and also the piano and the ukulele during the show. Tonight, the tour moves to Holland's Ahoy Rotterdam Arena.
The singer wrapped the Asian portion of her tour less than two weeks ago with a show at Hong Kong's AsiaWorld Expo Arena, and this year Swift's tour includes 90 shows in 19 countries. The U.S. leg begins May 27 in Omaha, Neb.
Swift's new single, Mean, the third from her three-times Platinum "Speak Now" album, released on Big Machine Records, ships to country radio today. The disc's first two singles, Mine and Back December, both reached number one at radio and on iTunes.
