Taylor Swift unveils 2013 U.S. tour -- St. Paul in September

The complex pop marvel that is Taylor Swift is heading back out on the road in 2013. Based upon her multiple car accidents during her recent interview time with Rolling Stone, let's just hope that she's not driving the bus.
The 58-concert trek across the U.S. (and a little bit of Canada) in support of her recently released Red begins March 13, 2013 in Omaha, and continues into September. Expect a lot more than a red guitar this time around. And just like last year, Swift has a pair of shows in St. Paul on the itinerary coming after Pink, Rihanna, and Lady Gaga roll through.
Tay-Tay made the official announcement of the tour while hanging with with Katie Couric on ABC News.
While some of the seats could prove to be pricey -- gotta pay for the fairy-tale castle onstage somehow, people -- each show will have a special block of tickets under $50. This extravaganza comes to Xcel Energy Center on Saturday, September 7 and Sunday, September 8. The quite delightful R&B singer from across the pond Ed Sheeran is her opening act. They sing a duet together called "Everything Has Changed." Remember when she was still considered a country musician?
