Taylor Swift Adds Shows in Los Angeles, Boston After Selling Out In Minutes

In the time it takes to listen to The Beatles’ “I Wanna Be Your Man,” Taylor Swift sold old two shows at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, California (August 23-24, 2011).

In the time it takes to listen to Anthrax’s “Caught in A Mosh,” Taylor Swift sold out a show at Gillette Stadium in Foxboro, Massachusetts (June 25, 2011).

To put it another way, Taylor Swift sold out her two L.A. shows in two minutes and her Foxboro gig in five. That’s not bad considering Gillette Stadium seats 68,000 screaming tweens (Staples Centers has a concert capacity of 20,000).

Taylor Swift tickets to the aforementioned shows went on sale Dec. 3 and Dec. 4 (respectively).

I doubt it’s physically possibly to sell that many concert tickets that fast, but that’s the tale Swift’s people are spinning.

It should be noted that the shows aren’t actually sold out. As of Dec. 7, there were still some single seats floating around for all three shows.

So if you’re a creepy middle-aged man, who likes 20-year-old singers who look and act like they’re 15, you’re in luck.

Due to the tremendous response, Swift has added two more Staples Center shows scheduled for Aug. 27-28 and another Gillette Stadium gig planned for June 26. Swift tickets for those concerts go on sale Dec. 10 and Dec. 11 (respectively).

The over-under for sellout times is Led Zeppelin’s “No Quarter” for Los Angeles and Rush’s “The Camera Eye” for Foxboro.

The above dates are part of Swift’s “Speak Now World Tour.” Her trek has her visiting 19 countries throughout 2011. In North America alone Swift is scheduled to perform 60 concerts.

Her tour kicks off Feb. 9 in Singapore. Swift’s first date in the states is set for May 27 in Omaha, Nebraska.
