Taylor Swift Is First Female Artist In History to Sell Out Sydney's Allianz Stadium

Taylor Swift is now the first female artist in history to sell out Sydney's Allianz Stadium, as she kicked off the Australian leg of her RED tour last night to a capacity crowd of more than 40,900 fans. The seven-time Grammy winner and reigning Billboard and American Music Awards Artist of the Year is also the first female solo artist in twenty years to undertake a national stadium concert tour of Australia.

Taylor's close to two-hour show impressed critics as well as fans:

  • The Sydney Morning Herald lauded her as "the real deal," and praising her "appealing personality...a heap of irresistible anthems...slick visuals...and genuine musical talent."
  • The Daily Telegraph declared, "Taylor Swift dazzles. Her musicality is undeniablethe wildly successful young woman is talented, confident, aspirational...maybe talent and hits can still win."
  • The Guardian raved, "Swift staked her claim for the title of the world's biggest female pop star[she] brought Sydney to a standstill."

Taylor played to 1.3 million fans in sold-out stadiums and arenas across the U.S. and Canada on her RED Tour earlier this year, and just wrapped a 3-night run of sold-out shows at Auckland's Vector Arena, playing to close to 30,000 fans. The New Zealand Herald wrote that Swift "was confident, energetic, chatty, and all smiles as she basked in the adoration of her fans, as she lead her troupe of dancers and band members through a fluid, colourful set that included multi-level staging, impressive feats of engineering, a carousel, music box, flying sparks, and jumbo screens."

Taylor Swift's The RED Tour continues on to stadiums in Brisbane (Dec. 7), Perth (Dec. 11), and Melbourne (Dec. 14). The RED Tour will travel to the UK and Germany in early 2014.

Taylor's Allianz Stadium performance of her global #1 hit "I Knew You Were Trouble." will be featured on "The GRAMMY Nominations Concert Live!," which airs Friday, December 6 th at 10:00 p.m. ET/PT on CBS.
