Taylor Swift to perform in Malaysia for the first time

The superstar’s South-East Asian gigs will be part of her highly successful Red Tour.

AMERICAN pop-country sweetheart Taylor Swift (pic) is ready to paint Kuala Lumpur red in June.

She is bringing her sold-out Red Tour to the South-East Asian region, the 24-year-old announced yesterday.

In a video posted on her official YouTube account, the performer says she will be visiting the Philippines, Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand and Singapore.

“We’ve been having the best time on the Red Tour in 2013. We’re going to bring the Red Tour to Asia. We are going to Manila, Jakarta, Kuala Lumpur, Bangkok and Singapore.

“Can’t wait to see you. I hope you’ll have a great time at the show. I’ll see you there,” says Swift.

The multiple-award-winning singer had just completed a successful run in North America and Europe before surprising her fans with the news. The superstar is slated to perform at Putra Indoor Stadium on June 11. It will be her first performance in the country.

Swift rose to fame as a country singer in 2006 before slowly transitioning to a pop star in later years and is best known for hits such as I Knew You Were Trouble, You Belong With Me, Love Story and Mean.

The South-East Asian portion of the Red Tour is presented by Cornetto and promoted by AEG Live. For more details, visit
