Taylor Swift Completing European Visit, Will Return for London Concerts

Taylor Swift is completing a nine-day European promotional tour to call attention to the international release of her latest album, Fearless, on March 9. The Web site for Shepherd’s Bush Empire, a London concert venue, reports that she will perform there on May 6-7. Fearless was released in the U.S. on Nov. 11 and has already sold more than 2.6 million copies. It’s currently spending its second consecutive week at No. 1 on the all-genre Billboard 200 chart. Swift’s overseas visit included a series of interviews in England, Scotland and Germany. While in London, she attended the Brit Awards, the U.K. equivalent of the Grammys. Her current U.S. pop hit, “Love Story,” is already available as a download in the U.K., and a CD single of the song will be released there on March 2. After returning to the U.S., Swift will perform a March 1 show at the Florida Strawberry Festival in Plant City, Fla., before heading to Australia for a brief tour scheduled for March 5-12.
