Taylor Swift, 23, has tied the record for most sold-out shows at Staples Center, The Los Angeles Times reports.
When [Swift] closes out her fourth sold-out show at the arena Saturday, she’ll claim the record for the solo artist with the most sellouts at Staples, with 11.
Following her opening show tonight, Aug. 19, she’ll surpass Madonna and Justin Timberlake, who each have logged seven sellouts at the arena, and she’ll top Britney Spears’ previous record of eight sellouts with Tuesday’s concert.
After Saturday, she’ll be tied with Latin pop group Mana for the most overall sellouts, with 11, for which she’s being feted Tuesday afternoon by Staples Senior Vice President and General Manager Lee Zeidman and officials from Red tour promoter the Messina Group.
The ceremony will be attended by 20 college students who are taking part in the Recording Academy’s GrammyU program, and they’ll also get to drop in on her afternoon soundcheck and receive a backstage tour.
Swift is currently on her sold-out stadium and arena tour promoting her latest album Red. The North American leg of the tour has grossed $95.3 million from 49 dates and still has 17 dates left. And then Swift will embark on her stadium tour in Oceania later this year to become the first woman in 20 years to play a stadium tour in Australia (since Madonna did in 1993).
Thanks, LA Times.
