Taylor Swift is in the midst of the best album sales week of any artist since, well, Taylor Swift the last time she released an album.
1989 is currently blowing past one million copies sold, which would be incredible even if album sales weren't completely in shambles. And today, our tumblr overlord announced a year-long world tour in support of the thing.
The 1989 World Tour, which just to be clear takes place in 2015 and will involve basically nothing from 1989 except a person who was born then, comes to Denver for a pair of shows on September 5 and September 6.
Tickets are on sale November 14, but a presale starts at 10 a.m. on November 7, which is this coming Friday or 302 days before the actual show. The presale is available to certain credit card holders and members of the Taylor Swift mailing list, a group you can join right here.
The exact details of the Denver show (like the price of tickets) haven't been announced yet, but you'll be able to keep abreast of those developments through AEG's ticket vendor, AXS. Below, gaze upon the extent to which Taylor Swift is single-handedly propping up the music industry.
