Swift's tour kicks off March 13 in Omaha, Neb., and includes 58 shows in 45 cities in 29 states and three provinces. She plays Fargo, N.D., on Sept. 6.

British singer-songwriter Ed Sheeran is slated as special guest on all shows.

At Swift's request, every show will include tickets priced under $50, according to a press release. The first tickets will go on sale Nov. 16, with details available at www.taylorswift.com and www.abcnews.com.
