Singer Taylor Swift has been pretty busy over the last few years.
After releasing sister albums Folklore and Evermore in 2020, the “Shake It Off” singer went on to re-release two of her previous albums, Fearless (Taylor’s Version), and Red (Taylor’s Version). She also wrote, directed, and starred in her “All Too Well: The Short Film,” which was based on the ten-minute version of the song, “All Too Well,” which appeared on Red (Taylor’s Version) in November 2021.
Although she has released several singles for 1989 (Taylor’s Version), that album has yet to drop. Instead, while accepting her award at the 2022 MTV Video Music Awards in August, the “Betty” singer revealed that she would be releasing her tenth studio album, Midnights, on October 21.
It appears that Taylor, 32, doesn’t just have several new albums in the works, but a stadium tour planned for her fans as well.

Fans were ecstatic when Taylor Swift joined HAIM on stage earlier this year in London, calling for her to come back on tour. It seems that Swifties “Wildest Dreams” may end up coming true, because a source told Page Six over the weekend that she is planning a stadium tour next summer, although no specific details have been released yet.
“Taylor has some really ambitious plans in place,” the source revealed. “She’s excited to get back on the road after such a long but fruitful break.” A second source told the outlet that “several shows have already been booked,” but a rep for the “Bad Blood” singer would not comment on the rumors.
The 32-year-old singer was supposed to go on tour in 2020 for her seventh studio album, Lover, but she was forced to scrap the show entirely due to shutdowns caused by the COVID-19 pandemic lockdown.

In February 2021, the “Enchanted” singer tweeted out an apology to her fans after she was forced to cancel Lover Fest. “This is an unprecedented pandemic that has changed everyone’s plans and no one knows what the touring landscape is going to look like in the near future,” she told her fans.
The last time that Taylor took the stage on a large stadium tour was in 2018, to promote her sixth studio album, “Reputation.” Page Six reported that it was one of the highest-grossing tours of all time. In addition, one of her performances in Texas was filmed for a concert special that is currently available to stream on Netflix.
Although fans are hopeful that they will get to see the “You Belong With Me” singer back on stage performing again, many are looking forward to her tenth studio album, Midnights, which is reportedly more experimental than her past nine albums, which have spanned genres from country to dream pop.

Taylor has described her tenth studio album as “a collection of music written in the middle of the night, a journey through terrors and sweet dreams.”
Earlier this year, a source had told The Sun that the “Gorgeous” singer had planned to “surprise fans with her most experimental album” to date and will give fans a “fresh take on her romance with actor Joe Alwyn” in this upcoming album.
The insider told the publication “Taylor is enjoying the process of tinkering with new sounds and is set to showcase a range of genres on her next album, which will surprise her fans,” adding, “It’ll also be her most collaborative album yet and she is eager to work with up-and-coming female artists and producers.”
They also said that the “Mirrorball” singer invited “some friends” to collaborate with her, but no names have been announced.
“She recently invited some friends to write with her and the songs they came up with reminded her team of Stevie Nicks and Joan Armatrading,” the insider said, adding, “Her fans are used to hearing about her break-ups but her outlook on romance has changed since being with Joe and this will come through in the music.”
Fans can look forward to seeing what Midnights has to offer when it is released on Friday, October 21.
