The reputation tour will continue in the U.S. on June 30 at Papa John’s Cardinal Stadium in Louisville, Ky. The North American leg is promoted by AEG Presents. Tour expectations are high, after all Swift’s last tour accompanying her 2014 album 1989 dominated Pollstar’s Year End Top 100 Worldwide Tours chart.

The sold-out 1989 tour grossed more than $250 million in 2015, with an average of 42,893 tickets sold per concert. The incredible sales of her latest album, reputation, indicate that demand for the artist remains unabated.

Ticketmaster’s Verified Fan system, which was used during the U.S. onsale, won’t be used for the UK dates.
