Yes, it’s happening. Taylor Swift is bringing her Reputation tour Down Under in October and November next year – the first time she’s been back in Australia since she conquered our shores in 2015.

It will undoubtedly be a reasonably large-scale affair, and judging by the tone of Reputation – which just hit streaming services, by the way – you’ll be seeing Taylor spit venom at those who have dared wrong her from some of the biggest stages in Australia.

She’ll launch her tour at the Optus Stadium in Perth on October 19 followed by Etihad Stadium, Melbourne, on October 26, ANZ Stadium, Sydney, on November 2 and The Gabba, Brisbane, on November 6.

Here are those dates again – including Auckland, if you want to make a trip of it.

PERTH – Friday 19 October – Optus Stadium
MELBOURNE – Friday 26 October – Etihad Stadium
SYDNEY – Friday 2 November – ANZ Stadium
BRISBANE – Tuesday 6 November – The Gabba
AUCKLAND – Friday 9 November – Mt Smart Stadium

A presale kicks off at her website on the 12th of December, with sales to the general public kicking off on the 15th of December. Any by ‘kicking off’ I do indeed mean ‘selling out in five microseconds’ so you’d better get that clicking finger ready, Swifties.
