Taylor Swift Completes 100th Show of Speak Now World Tour
Taylor Swift is the covergirl of the April issue of Australia’s Harper’s Bazaar, and this past weekend that timing seemed just right as Swift performed the 100th show of her Speak Now World Tour in the land Down Under. Kicking off her final leg of the tour, Swift took the stage Friday at Perth’s Burswood Dome for her 99th show and then rounded out her centennial Speak Now performance Sunday at the Adelaide Entertainment Centre.
Australian newspapers gave the show rave reviews, with the Sunday Times in Perth saying Swift had “16,000 people in the palm of her hand,” according to the Sacramento Bee. The ‘Mean’ singer did the bulk of her tour in 2011, hitting 17 countries across the globe and performing 98 shows along the way.
Just days before Swift marked off her 100th performance, she made a vocal appearance in the film ‘The Lorax’ as the character of Audrey. Premiering March 2, the Dr. Seuss film earned $70.7 million at the box office, making it the biggest box-office debut so far in 2012. Swift co-starred in the film alongside a star-studded cast that included Betty White, Danny DeVito, Ed Helms and Zac Efron, all offering up their respective voices for the parts of animated characters.
In addition adding her Speak Now 100th show and ‘The Lorax’ premiere to her bucket list, Swift never ceases to amass an impressive number of awards at any awards show dishing out accolades for musicians. The six-time Grammy winner is currently awaiting the results of her three Academy of Country Music Awards nominations for Entertainer of the Year, Female Vocalist of the Year and Video of the Year. She’s finishing out her Speak Now World Tour in Australia and New Zealand, officially wrapping March 18 at Auckland, New Zealand’s Vector Arena.
