Taylor Swift, unstoppable musical force/dissatisfied Spotify customer, has just announced a 57-date tour for 2015, including two shows at St. Louis' Scottrade Center on October 13 and 14. Tickets will go on sale January 30 at 10 a.m., according to Swift's website. Ticket prices have not yet been announced.

Swift last hit St. Louis in March of 2013, as part of her Red tour. RFT Music writer Allison Babka attended that one, and had this to say in her review:
I can't even imagine how much a show like this might cost. The Red tour was a spectacle in every way, from the musical merch trunks in the lobby to the multiple elaborate costumes for about 25 on-stage people, from the multi-stage setup to the pyrotechnics and lights show. For goodness' sake, TayTay flew through the freaking air several times. The overall Swifty concert experience is nearly at U2's level -- and as a 25-show U2 veteran, I don't say that lightly.
