Taylor Swift has set yet another record. She sold out Shanghai’s Mercedes-Benz Arena in one minute, making it the fastest ticket on-sale in Chinese history. After announcing that she will take her RED Tour to Asia this summer to meet fan demand, the seven Asian dates sold out in record speeds.

The RED Tour features two stages, elaborate costumes, dancers, numerous costume changes and changing sets. Taylor moves around the venue to give every audience member a great seat and a chance to see her up close and personal, playing electric guitar, banjo, piano and acoustic guitar. The set list includes Taylor’s biggest hits, songs from her Red album and fan favorites.

In 2013, the North American leg of the RED Tour played to more than 1.36 million fans over 66 shows, including 13 stadium stops, in 47 cities in 29 states and 3 provinces spanning 6 months. The RED Tour also went Down Under for a stadium tour as well as arena dates in New Zealand, making Taylor the first solo female artist in twenty years to undertake a national stadium concert tour of Australia. The tour played six sold out shows in Europe in 2014.
