Taylor Swift adds second show at Gillette Stadium

, Staff

Due to overwhelming demand, Taylor Swift has added a second date at Gillette Stadium to her 2011 tour plans after selling out the first show in mere minutes. The country-pop superstar will now perform at the home of the New England Patriots on Saturday, June 25 and Sunday, June 26. Tickets for the new show on June 26, which range in price from $39.75 to $85, go on sale Saturday at 10 a.m. through Ticketmaster.

Swift will be touring in support of her brand new release, Speak Now. The album, her third studio effort, debuted #1 on the Billboard 200 after its release last month. It sold 1,047,000 copies in its first week, making it the largest sales week for an album since 50 Cent’s The Massacre debuted at #1 with 1,141,000 in March of 2005. Speak Now has been powered by lead single “Mine”, which was accompanied by a video filmed this past summer in Kennebunkport, Maine.

Prior to her shows in Foxboro, New England fans can see Swift perform at the Comcast Theatre in Hartford, Connecticut on Wednesday, June 22. No ticket information for the Hartford show has been released. Pop-rockers Needtobreathe will open all shows on the Speak Now tour.

The only artist to ever sell out Gillette Stadium faster is Kenny Chesney.
