Her hit songs have topped the charts all over the globe, and Taylor Swift couldn’t be more pumped to take her Red tour all the way to Shanghai, China.

In an exclusive interview, the “Stay Stay Stay” songstress gushed, "I'm really excited about being in China for the first time. It's really exciting to bring the Red tour here because - having never been here - I'm most excited about the fact that the show in Shanghai sold out in under a minute. That was unbelievable, so it makes me even more excited to play the show knowing that there was that much demand here."

Taylor also appreciated the fresh experiences afforded her by traveling to a new land. "It's really exciting going somewhere new because I've done so much International touring that you very rarely get to be in an entire country that you've never even stepped foot in before, so that kind of experience is always kind of really exciting and there are lots of different places we're going on this Asia tour where I've never been to before, but the shows are all sold out."

And when everything is said and done, it’s all about the music for Miss Swift. “Music is one of those unifying factors that works all over the world. Looking out into the crowd and being in a completely new place and seeing that it’s sold out, seeing that people know the words to the songs- it’s really, really incredible.”
