Taylor Swift news: To perform live for first time since Super Bowl
It seems like a really long time since American singer and songwriter, Taylor Swift, has graced the stage. However, fans of the pop star may be pleased to know that Swift is already scheduled to appear on stage to promote her latest album, "Reputation," which is scheduled to be released on Nov. 10.
According to Variety, Swift has scheduled a total of two shows for the month of December. Her first show will be for the San Jose California radio station, Poptopia 99.7 on Dec. 2. Five days after that, fans will be able to catch Swift at the B96 Jingle Bash in Chicago. However, it is important to note that it is likely that Swift will only be performing a handful of songs, strictly for promotional purposes.
Swift's last appearance was at the Super Bowl, which happened last February. In a report by Billboard, Swift has already collaborated with the people from college football games, and other brands like Target and UPS to promote the upcoming events and the album itself. Swift is considered to be a marketing genius in the industry, and it seems like she has definitely done her homework.
In a report by NME, Swift will be appearing alongside with some of the world's most in demand acts today such as Ed Sheeran, the Chainsmokers, Dua Lipa, and Niall Horan on Dec. 2. This means that fans will have all the more reason to give the show a visit. However, Swift has been criticized for trying to fleece tickets to which her representatives denied.
"If these same tickets were offered on the open market," they said, "scalpers would snatch them up and fans would be paying thousands of dollars for them. However, if fans do successfully get tickets, MTV News noted that they will be among the first to hear the new songs from Swift's latest album in person.
