You might want to stock up on that "Swiftamine" – Taylor Swiftis heading out on tour!
The 24-year-old announced her upcoming 1989 World Tour on Monday's edition of Good Morning America, revealing a full list of tour dates on her website. The North American trek will kick off on May 20, 2015, and will continue on through Europe and Australia. She will be joined by artists Vance Joy and Shawn Mendes on select stops.
See a complete list of tour dates below.
It was also revealed on Monday that Swift will be among the performers at the 2014 American Music Awards, airing Sunday, November 23, on ABC.
The announcements come just one week after Swift's highly anticipated fifth studio album, 1989, hit shelves. According to Billboard, the full-length is on track to sell more than 1.3 million copies in its first week on the market, which would mark the biggest sales week in music since Eminem's The Eminem Show back in 2002 and breaking Britney Spears' Oops…! I Did It Again record for the biggest one-week sales of an album by a woman.
Taylor also made headlines on Monday when it became apparent that she had pulled all of her albums from music streaming service Spotify. The move doesn't come as a huge surprise: 1989 was never featured on the service and her last album, 2012's Red, was also unavailable on Spotify when it first debuted (the album later popped up for users to stream).
Swift has yet to comment on the sudden disappearance, but she has voiced her opinion on streaming services in the past.
"Piracy, file sharing and streaming have shrunk the numbers of paid album sales drastically, and every artist has handled this blow different," she wrote in a Wall Street Journal op-ed earlier this year. "It's my opinion that music should not be free, and my prediction is that individual artists and their labels will someday decide what an album’s price point is. I hope they don't underestimate themselves or undervalue their art."
Spotify, meanwhile, created a playlist in honor of the now-absent star, called "What to Play While Taylor's Away" which features artists like Katy Perry (awk-ward!), One Direction (also awk-ward!) and Ed Sheeran (obvi).
Swift has yet to address the Spotify issue publicly, but she did acknowledge Saturday Night Live's recent spoof of her. During Chris Rock's controversial hosting stint, the show also aired a digital short in which a doctor offers up "Swiftamine" in order to treat adults suffering from vertigo when they develop a passionate love for Taylor's music.
She also wrote an enthusiastic, "Yes, SNL. YES." on Facebook, sharing a link to the skit.
