The platinum blondes of music, Taylor Swift and Madonna, have announced plans for new tours.
Taylor will kick off her first headlining tour in Evansville, Ind. on April 23, Access Hollywood has learned.
The tour, in support of her sophomore album, “Fearless,” will travel to 52 cities across America and will feature “multiple costume changes” and a stage with a “fairy-tale castle,” a rep for Taylor told Billboard.
After finishing stateside, the country cutie will take her show to the United Kingdom and Japan.
“Americal Idol” alum Kellie Pickler and new pop-country act Gloriana will open for Taylor.
In more tour news, Madonna will resume her “Sticky & Sweet” tour this summer across the Atlantic in the U.K. and Europe, the music trade mag also reported.
Madge will kick off part two of her record-breaking show in London at the O2 Arena on July 4. The singer will also visit the Manchester (U.K.) Evening News Arena, along with multiple stops in cities the pop star has never played or has not visited in many years.
“Sticky & Sweet” is already the top-grossing tour ever by a female or solo artist, and the additional 80 tour dates are expected to catapult Madonna’s tour into the top five grossing tours of all time.
