Pop-country superstar Taylor Swift will perform at Gillette Stadium in Foxboro next summer. The newly-crowned 2009 CMA Entertainer of the Year, who has yet to play a proper headlining show in Boston, tackle the home of the Patriots on Saturday, June 5. Tickets for the show, which range in price from $59.75 to $74.75, go on sale Saturday at 10 a.m. through Ticketmaster. Opening the show will be Kellie Pickler, Gloriana and Justin Bieber.

Swift, who turns 20 next month, won 4 Country Music Association Awards last month including the top prize of Entertainer of the Year, as well as Female Vocalist of the Year, Album of the Year and Music Video of the Year. Last month, she re-released her 2008 sophomore album Fearless with six new songs as Fearless: Platinum Edition. Swift was the highest-selling artist of 2008 in the United States and Fearless was recently certified 4x Platinum.

She also provides guest vocals on “Two Is Better Than One,” the new single from Boston’s Boys Like Girls’ sophomore album, Love Drunk.

The Foxboro show will serve as her first stop in Boston for her ongoing Fearless Tour. Swift was last in Boston this past summer when she opened for Keith Urban at the TD Garden,
