Swift will promote "reputation" with a new, North American stadium tour beginning in 2018.

Swift's new album "Reputation" is out now and is an improvement over her "1989" outing.

Swift missed New Zealand off her most recent world tour in 2015, which supported album 1989.

The 24-hour TaylorSwift.com presale begins Tuesday, December 12, and general on-sale is Friday, December 15th'.

More ticketing and tour information is available from Swift's web site and the Live Nation web site.

Various tickets were made available with prices in the United Kingdom ranging from £62 (A$109) for general seated tickets, to £132 (A$233) for "Snake Pit" tickets.

Taylor Swift held onto her throne atop the weekly U.S. Billboard 200 album chart for a third consecutive week on Monday. Swift also become the first woman to notch at least three weeks at the top spot since Adele's 25 release of 2015.

A VIP package was also made available, which included access to exclusive video content and a "hardback reputation book" featuring poetry, paintings and personal photos.

Swift is certainly not the first big act to snub Adelaide - Sir Paul McCartney is in Australia at the moment but will only play in the four biggest cities.

She will kick off the Australian leg at the Optus Stadium in Perth on October 19 followed by Etihad Stadium, Melbourne, on October 26, ANZ Stadium, Sydney, on November 2 and The Gabba, Brisbane, on November 6.
