The Red Tour is the ongoing third concert tour of Taylor Swift, promoting her fourth studio album, Red. The North American tour commenced on March 13, 2013 and will continue until September 21, 2013, with Ed Sheeran as the opening act. [1] The Oceanic leg of the tour will take place from November 29, 2013 until December 14, 2013. [2] Taylor Swift also decided to bring her tour to Europe in 2014.[3]

BackgroundEdit

On October 25, 2012, in partnership with ABC News on the prime-time TV special All Access Nashville with Katie Couric – A Special Edition of 20/20, Swift announced that she would launch a North American stadium and arena tour in early 2013 in support of her fourth studio album, Red (2012). During a radio interview with WRVW, Swift mentioned that "It's nothing like any other tour before."

Swift told Billboard: "Of course, you know the tour will be a big representation of this record". "I'm so excited to see what songs the fans like the most and which ones jump to the forefront, because that's the first step. We always see which songs are really the passionate songs and the ones the fans are freaking out over the most, and those are the ones that are definitely in the set list. I can't wait for that."

Swift used Tom Petty's "American Girl" as her entrance song on her previous tour but now takes the stage to Lenny Kravitz's version of "American Woman". She sings a cover of The Lumineers's "Ho Hey" nightly, intertwined with her own "Stay Stay Stay".
