Taylor Swift is headed down under: The country-pop superstar has just announced that Australian dates have been added to her wildly successful Red Tour. As Billboard notes, this makes her the first solo female artist to head out on a stadium tour since Madonna‘s Girly Show tour twenty years ago.

The tour kicks off November 29 in Auckland, New Zealand, then heads to Sydney, Brisbane, Perth and Melbourne. The head of the touring company described her as “one of the most significant female artists of our time” (fact) and said, “I can honestly think of only a tiny handful of solo artists – male or female – who could fill stadium venues today” (also a fact).

Taylor posted a video, where she seemed more than adequately excited about the news:

She made no mention of Victoria Grayson’s plot to destroy her.

Tickets go on sale May 21, with a pre-sale beginning May 14 at frontiertouring.com/taylorswift.
