The 1989 World Tour is the fourth concert tour by American singer-songwriter Taylor Swift, in support of her fifth studio album, 1989 (2014). The tour's European and North American dates, as well as two shows in Japan, were announced in November 2014, followed by the Oceania dates in December 2014. Additional dates for Asia were announced in June 2015 with an extra Melbourne show announced in July 2015. The tour began on May 5, 2015, in Tokyo, Japan.

Background

The tour was announced via Swift's Twitter on November 3, 2014: she said "#The1989WorldTour is happening!" before giving a link to her website where fans could find out the list of dates. It was also revealed that Vance Joy would be joining Swift on tour, and that tickets would go sale on for North American fans on November 14.

In an interview with Time Magazine, Swift said that "the setlist will predominantly songs from 1989. [...] I have so many things I've been dreaming up for this. If you look at the makeup of my previous music, as far as production elements go, there are a lot of live drums, acoustic guitars, electric guitars, and live bass. And if you look at the landscape of 1989, it’s mostly synths and automated drums and these kind of big epic synth pad sounds, and key bass, and layered vocals. I have a very big band, there are, what, 14 of us, so what you’re going to end up with is more of a live feel in that it’s going to be filled in and more dramatic with more layers to it, but never to the point where it’s going to feel noisy or overcrowded." She also acknowledged the challenge of playing to stadiums, stating that "the challenge with a stadium show is making those people in the very top row feel like they got an intimate, personal experience." The following month in an interview with KIIS-FM, she revealed that she knew what the stage would look like, as well as knowing that "all the fans seem to be saying that they really don't want any song [from 1989] left off the set list".
