Touring in Iowa is such an old Taylor thing.
Pop superstar Taylor Swift announced Monday a massive North American stadium tour in support of “Reputation,” her highly anticipated sixth studio album.
The tour kicks off May 8 in Glendale, Arizona, and will wrap up Oct. 6 in Arlington, Texas. Tickets go on sale Dec. 13, Swift’s website outlined, and fans can register for a pre-sale via Ticketmaster Verified Fan program now through Nov. 28.
Missing from the list of 27 stadium-sized tour dates is a stop in the Hawkeye state.
Still, Swifties needing to fulfill their wildest dreams of Taylor in-real-life can hop in the car and head to one of the tour’s regional dates. Here's a list of dates within driving distance of Des Moines:
