PETALING JAYA: Country-pop superstar Taylor Swift will be getting around Southeast Asia swiftly with AirAsia named as the official airline for her regional tour.
She will be bringing The Red Tour to Kuala Lumpur, Bangkok, Jakarta, Manila and Singapore in June, and AirAsia will also be sporting aircraft livery featuring the seven-time Grammy Award-winning singer.
AirAsia Group chief commercial officer Siegtraund Teh said Swift’s fans can look forward to spotting the special Taylor Swift branded Airbus A320 in June.
“We are very proud to be the official airline for Taylor Swift’s tour in Southeast Asia, which is aptly named The Red Tour, synonymous with AirAsia’s corporate colour.
"With AirAsia’s strong route network in Asia, especially in Asean, we are definitely the best people to connect Taylor and her crew to all of her tour destinations,” she said in a statement on Wednesday.
Fans can expect an elaborate two stage set-up with changing sets, costumes and dancers, as Swift runs through songs from her record-breaking album Red as well as new takes on other fan favourites.
She will also be playing the electric guitar, banjo, piano and acoustic guitar over the course of the evening.
