TAYLOR SWIFT has expanded the North American leg of her Speak Now tour, adding 16 dates.   Tickets for the new dates will go on sale in the coming weeks.   Australian country singer ADAM BRAND has been announced as the opening act for her November shows, as well as September 24th, while DAVID NAIL will open the newly-added October shows.

The North American leg of the tour kicks off May 27th in Omaha.  When that part of the tour wraps up, Taylor will have headlined a total of 78 shows in 63 cities.

Here are the new tour dates:

I am really excited about the Bossier City, Austin, and San Antonio new dates.  Only because I might have a chance to see her now.  These shows are all going to sell out fast so keep looking back for more details.  So would you go see her in concert?
