After delivering her first career stadium headlining show this past summer at Gillette Stadium, Taylor Swift has revealed plans to return to Foxboro, Massachusetts next summer as part of her “Speak Now” world tour. The country-pop superstar will perform at the home of the New England Patriots on Saturday, June 25. Tickets for the show, which range in price from$39.75 to $85, go on sale Saturday at 10 a.m. through Ticketmaster. Pop-rockers Needtobreathe have been tapped to open the show.

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.

Swift is currently slated to play 87 shows in 19 countries spanning four continents. Prior to her show 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.

“I’m so excited to go back out on tour again in 2011!” declared Swift in a press release. “The Fearless Tour was so much fun and even more unforgettable than I ever imagined, and I can’t wait to get back out and play my new music from Speak Now! The fans have been so amazing, and I’m thrilled to play in new cities around the world and meet even more of my fans in 2011!”
