The singer, whose new record Reputation came out yesterday, is allegedly set to announce a string of concerts on her birthday, December 13.
The jaunt would presumably start in 2018 and would be one of the most popular of the year.
It would be roughly in line with her last era, 2014’s 1989: a tour was announced two weeks after it came out, and began in May 2015.
Her UK shows were actually minimal that time around: she played Hyde Park, Manchester Arena and Glasgow’s SSE Hydro only.
But the 85-show run was still an enormous success, selling over two million tickets and grossing around $250 million.
Reputation has had positive reviews from critics, despite the polarising responses to its lead-in singles Look What You Made Me Do and …Ready For It?
Currently it has an aggregated score of 75 at Metacritic, down only one mark on 1989.
Responses have included four-star verdicts from the likes of The Guardian, The Independent, The Telegraph and NME.
Entertainment Weekly gave it a B grade, and USA Today awarded three stars out of four.
Celebrities have been gushing on social media, with Ed Sheeran posting on Instagram: “Reputation by @taylorswift out now. Proud to be a part of this one, check it out x.”
“Gagging listening to #reputation,” said Todrick Hall.
The Vamps’ James McVey wrote: “Time to listen to #Reputation for the 1st time. Bring it on.”
Reputation is out now.
