Taylor Swift started her meteoric career with a bang: Her self-titled debut album went multi-platinum, and her second album secured four Grammys. In fact, everything she touches becomes a smash hit. Swift was named 2009 artist of the year by Billboard magazine, and her latest release “Speak Now”, sold over one million copies in its first week alone. After performing in Osaka on Feb. 13, Swift will head to Tokyo’s historic Budokan for two more concerts on Feb. 16 & 17. Taylor’s concert may not go down in the history books like the lads from Liverpool did, but country-pop fans are advised to book tickets early, as this superstar is sure to draw the crowds.
Feb. 16-17, 18pm
