Taylor Swift won’t be shaking off the winning feeling before she heads to Perth to kick off her Australian tour next week.
The princess of pop arrived at the American Music Awards dressed as a disco ball, and went home with a loot of trophies yesterday.
Swift made history, breaking Whitney Houston’s record for most AMAs won by a female artist winning four awards taking her total of 23 AMAs.
On top of being the most decorated artist of the evening, Swift performed her new song I Did Something Bad.
Swift opened up during one of her acceptance speeches, revealing she was already working on new work.
“Guys, I always look at albums as chapters in my life. And I’m so—to the fans, I’m so happy that you like this one. I’m so happy that this means that you like this one. But I have to be really honest with you about something. I’m even more excited about the next chapter,” she said.
Six Boeing 747s will arrive in Perth this week bringing in equipment for Swift’s Reputation concert next Friday at Optus Stadium.
A Korean Airlines 747-8F and a Cathay Pacific Airways 747-8F touched down at Perth Airport yesterday to unload the stage equipment. They will be followed by two Singapore Airlines 747-400Fs and two Atlas 747-400Fs over the next three days.
These 747Fs are pure freighters and have never carried passengers. After the Perth concert the equipment will be trucked to Melbourne, then Sydney and Brisbane.
The 28-year-old last performed in Australia in 2015.
Swift has already been in the limelight this week after a surprise Instagram post on Sunday in which she broke her long silence on politics and encouraged her more than 112 million followers on the platform to register to vote.
Less than 48 hours after her post, more than 169,000 new people had registered to vote, more than half of whom were aged 18 to 29.
