The RED Tour: Taylor Swift to Stage her First Ever Show in Jakarta, Indonesia
Tuesday, 18 February 2014 |
For the first time ever, the American pop-country sweetheart Taylor Swift is ready to stage her first ever show in Indonesia scheduled to take place at the Mata Elang Indoor Stadium, Jakarta on 4th June 2014. The Jakarta Concert will also kick off a series of shows of the RED Tour in the South East Asia region which will be followed by performances in the Philippines, Thailand, Malaysia, and Singapore.
Taylor Swift spent much of 2013 headlining sold-out stadiums and arenas in North America, Australia, New Zealand, London, and Berlin on this blockbuster Red Tour. The ever growing strong demand in Indonesia and the Southeast Asian region finally brought the lovely young singer to perform here. The Tour itself promotes Taylor’s 4th and latest studio album which were released in October 2013 and received highly acclaimed responses. The album sold 1.89 million copies in its first three weeks and as of January 2014, the album had sold over 3.973 million copies in the United States alone.
The concert will feature two stages, elaborate costumes, dancers, and changing sets. Not only presenting her beautiful voice, Taylor will also play electric guitar, acoustic guitar, banjo, and piano and also changes costumes multiple times over the course of the evening. Her set will feature several songs from her record-breaking RED album, as well as new takes on other fan favorites.
Taylor Swift, who writes all of her own songs, is a seven-time GRAMMY winner and the youngest to ever receive the GRAMMY Award for Album of the Year. The release of Swift's eponymous titled debut album in October 2006 established her as a country music star. "Our Song", her third single, made her the youngest person to single-handedly write and perform a number one song on the country chart. Buoyed by the pop crossover success of the singles "Love Story" and "You Belong with Me", the second album Fearless became the best-selling album of 2009. The record won four Grammy Awards, with Swift becoming the youngest ever Album of the Year winner. Swift's third album, 2010's Speak Now, sold over one million copies in its first week of US release and was supported by the Speak Now World Tour. The album's third single, "Mean", won two Grammy Awards.
In 2012, the opening US Sales of the fourth album Red reached 1.2 million and was recorded as the highest in a decade. She became the only female artist to have two million-plus opening weeks. The album unleashed the singles "We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together" and "I Knew You Were Trouble" which went on to become worldwide hits.
The Jakarta and Southeast Asia portion of The RED Tour is presented by Cornetto and promoted by AEG Live. Tickets will be available for purchased online starting from 24th February on rajakarcis.com.
