Taylor Swift announced today that she will tour the world in 2011 in support of her blockbuster Speak Now album, which shattered sales records with over a million copies sold in its first week of release.

Taylor is currently slated to play 87 shows in 19 countries spanning four continents on the Taylor Swift “Speak Now World Tour 2011″, which kicks off February 9th in Singapore.

The 2011 dates will include six stadium shows” Foxborough, MA’s Gillette Stadium, Detroit’s Ford Field, Pittsburgh’s Heinz Field, Philadelphia’s Lincoln Financial Field, Kansas City’s Arrowhead Stadium, and Dallas’s Cowboys Stadium. Taylor’s 15-month, 107-date “Fearless” 2009 / 2010 Tour sold out arenas and stadiums in 88 cities in five countries.

Taylor will play shows throughout Asia and Europe during the first quarter of 2011, before kicking off her North American tour on May 27th in Omaha, Nebraska. “Speak Now” tour dates are planned for later in the year in Australia and New Zealand. The North American leg of the tour is sponsored by CoverGirl, and ticket prices start at $25.

The “Speak Now World Tour 2011″ is one of the most-anticipated musical experiences of the year, as Taylor’s live show is renowned for her incredibly high-energy theatrical presentation of graphics, sets and visual elements, all conceptualized by Taylor herself. During the course of her show, Taylor plays a variety of instruments and has multiple wardrobe changes. Each show, Taylor performs hit after hit from her three Big Machine Records albums, including the chart-topping “Mine,” “Love Story,” “You Belong With Me,” “Our Song,” and “Fifteen.”

“I’m so excited to go back out on tour again in 2011!” says Taylor. “The Fearless Tour was so much fun and even more unforgettable than I ever imagined, and I can’t wait to get back out and play my new music from Speak Now!
