Teenage country music star Taylor Swift will play Tulsa’s BOK Center this fall on her first headlining tour, the venue announced today.

The tour will stop at the Tulsa arena on Sept. 27 and feature special guests Kellie Pickler and Gloriana.

Tickets will go on sale at 10 a.m. April 3 and will be available at www.bokcenter.com, area Reasor’s and Homeland stores, Arby’s Box Office or by calling (866) 7BOKCTR.

Ticket prices are set at $51.50, $41.50 and $22.
Swift’s will be headlining her first North American tour in support of her smash-hit sophomore album “Fearless.” The “Fearless Tour” will feature an theatrical presentation of graphics, sets and visual elements designed by the 19-year-old singer-songwriter herself, according to a news release.

Swift’s good friend, “American Idol” finalist Pickler, will be a featured artist on all of the dates. Pickler’s current single, “Best Days of Your Life”, is a revenge song that she co-wrote with Swift, who lends background vocals on the album as well.

Gloriana is an exciting new and vibrant force in country music. The group consists of four uniquely talented and enthusiastic young musicians joining forces to create a fresh, one-of-a-kind sound with soaring four-part harmonies and an electric stage presence. Their first single, “Wild at Heart”, is just arriving at country radio to rave reviews, and their debut album is set for release later this year.
