Taylor Swift 2015 U.S. Tour Dates -- St. Paul in September

itemprop
Taylor Swift just shook out an extensive tour plan for next year in support of her latest album, 1989. The record, which is her most pop-oriented (and most-thinkpieced) to date, sold 1.3 million copies in its first week on shelves. (Even if "Welcome to New York" is questionable.)

In other words, Tay Tay is big business -- bigger than she's ever been -- and this tour will have to do much to top the spectacle of Red's run, which hit St. Paul in 2013. She'll be back at the Xcel for two shows next year.
