Taylor Swift Will Paint the Town Red in 2013 with New Tour [VIDEO]


Taylor Swift is going to paint North America red starting in March. The country-pop superstar announced late Friday a 58-date concert marathon across the U.S. and Canada for the spring and summer of 2013.

The tour kicks off in Omaha, Nebraska on March 13 and then winds its way through 29 states and three provinces before concluding in Nashville, Tennessee on Sept. 21.

The shows are in support of Swift's new album "Red," which was released on Oct. 22.

As previously reported, Swift is charging toward a million-unit sales week and a no-doubt-about-it No. 1 debut on the Billboard 200 with her fourth album. Industry sources still peg final week sales (which run through Sunday, Oct. 28) at around the 1.1 million mark, which would make the album the 18th in the Nielsen SoundScan era to surpass 1 million in sales in a week.

"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," said Swift on her website.

"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!"

English singer-songwriter Ed Sheeran, Swift's friend and duet partner on new track "Everything Has Changed," will be the opening act on all shows on the tour.
