Taylor Swift Announces The 1989 World Tour

NEW YORK, Ny., November 3, 2014 – Seven-time GRAMMY winner Taylor Swift announced The 1989 World Tour on Good Morning America this morning just days after performing an epic concert in Times Square to over 20,000 fans, wrapping up promotion of her history making fifth studio album, 1989. The 1989 World Tour will be produced and promoted by AEG Live & The Messina Group (TMG) and kicks off on May 20, 2015 in Louisiana.

Australian singer-songwriter Vance Joy will be main support along the North American tour while singer, songwriter and viral sensation Shawn Mendes will support the global superstar along her North American stadium dates. The 1989 World Tour will encompass eight countries and span four continents including North America, Europe, Australia and Asia**. The first tickets for the North American leg will go on-sale to the general public on November 14th. American Express® Card Members and members of TaylorSwift.com will have access to purchase tickets in advance beginning November 7th*. General ticketing and on-sale information will be available at TaylorSwift.com.

Last year, the North American portion of Taylor's sold out The RED Tour played to more than 1.36 million fans over 66 shows (including 13 stadium stops) in 47 cities in 29 states. Also in 2013, Taylor took The RED Tour Down Under -- performing sold out stadium shows in Australia (as well as arena dates in New Zealand), becoming the first solo female artist in twenty years to undertake a national stadium concert tour of Australia. In addition, The RED Tour visited Europe for six sold-out shows in 2014. Taylor Swift, who writes all of her own songs, is a global superstar, seven-time GRAMMY winner and the youngest winner in history of the music industry's highest honor, the GRAMMY Award for Album of the Year. Taylor is the only artist in music history to have an album (2010's Speak Now, 2012's RED and 2014's 1989) hit the 1 million plus first-week sales figure three times. She is the first artist since the Beatles (and the only female artist in history) to log six or more weeks at #1 in the U.S. with three consecutive studio albums. Taylor has an album on Rolling Stone's prestigious The 50 Greatest Albums of All Time (by women) list, Time magazine has named her one the of the 100 Most Influential People in the world, and she is Billboard's youngest-ever Woman of the Year and the only artist to have been awarded this honor twice. Taylor has career record sales in excess of 30 million albums and almost 80 million song downloads worldwide, and has had singles top both the pop and country radio charts around the globe. Taylor's album RED (Big Machine Records), released two years ago, sold more than 1.2 million copies in the U.S. in its first week, scoring the highest first-week sales debut of any album in over a decade. "Shake It Off.” the first single off her critically acclaimed fifth studio album 1989, topped Billboard’s Pop, HotAC and Hot 100 charts and has earned double Platinum-status by the RIAA for exceeding sales of two million downloads in the U.S., and has peaked at No. 1 in 64 countries on iTunes.  1989 topped iTunes’ sales charts in 95 countries on its release and was the highest selling first week release of 2014.

Verizon and Extreme Networks Team with Seahawks to Enhance Fan Experience at CenturyLink Field

Renton, Wash. – The Seattle Seahawks and Verizon (NYSE: VZ) announced today significant enhancements to the wireless network at CenturyLink Field to provide fans with free open access to Wi-Fi.

Working with Verizon and CenturyLink, Extreme Networks (Nasdaq: EXTR), the Official Wi-Fi Analytics Provider of the NFL, installed its acclaimed high-density Wi-Fi and Purview analytics systems at CenturyLink Field prior to the 2014 NFL season in conjunction with this initiative. Now tens of thousands of Seahawks’ fans can enjoy their wireless devices, social media and pictures throughout the game as connecting to their apps and the Internet is both fast and simple. 

In addition to implementing Wi-Fi and enhancing in-stadium connectivity, 12 individuals will be on site as part of the in-stadium Wi-Fi Certified Coach Program – a uniquely developed service offered by Extreme Networks to support fans at venues that have deployed high density Wi-Fi. These individuals provide technical assistance and educate fans about Wi-Fi usage and game day mobile offerings such as the Verizon NFL Mobile app and the Seahawks’ team app.

“The Seahawks are excited to work with Verizon and Extreme Networks to bring the best Wi-Fi solution to our fans at CenturyLink Field,” said Seahawks President Peter McLoughlin. “By enhancing connectivity throughout the entire stadium, it allows us to offer new mobile app features such as live video streaming, and ‘Eye of the Hawk’. This allows fans to select live feeds from around the stadium along with coverage of live on-the-field action from multiple camera angles, replays and game highlights.”

As part of Verizon’s relationship with the Seahawks, the south end zone restaurant has been transformed into the Verizon Lounge, a state-of-the-art sports bar and restaurant. The Verizon Lounge also serves as the location for the Seahawks’ postgame radio show. Verizon installed 36 charging stations in the lounge and throughout the stadium to provide fans with the ability to stay in touch on game day.

“Seahawks fans deserve a championship-caliber wireless experience on game day, and now they have two WiFi options, plus XLTE network enhancements in-stadium and in-the neighborhood for greater reliability,” said Bobby Morrison, Verizon Wireless President for the Pacific Northwest and Alaska.      

 “An immersive and connected fan experience at games continues to be a significant goal for the NFL. We are marching into the future of stadiums and technology and through Extreme Networks and Verizon, the Seahawks will be able to provide an engaging experience for their dedicated fans,” said Michelle McKenna-Doyle, Senior Vice President and CIO of the NFL.

The Extreme Networks Wi-Fi system is designed to support high density requirements, including high-speed connections for streaming content and uploading photos, support of social engagement, support of in-venue mobile application delivery for value added services and to promote efficient delivery of multicast video with unicast-like performance and reliability.

“At Extreme Networks, we strive to provide fans with unwavering wireless connectivity enhancing the game day experience. In today’s multi-device environment, it is imperative that fans can access, view and download the content that matters most to them, from instant replays to scores around the NFL,” said Norman Rice, senior vice president of corporate development for Extreme Networks. “Through our relationship with the Seattle Seahawks, CenturyLink and Verizon, we deliver pervasive connectivity resulting in an incredible experience.” 

Access to the stadium Wi-Fi can be found at VerizonWifi for Verizon customers. The same level of Wi-Fi can be found at CenturyLinkFieldWiFi for non-Verizon customers.

Kenny Chesney and Jason Aldean Merge for 10 Stadium Shows in 2015

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (Oct. 27, 2014) – Anticipation for the summer of 2015 just hit record highs as Jason Aldean and Kenny Chesney have announced that their tours will collide for 10 stadium shows next summer.  The first shows to go on sale for the unprecedented pairing are New England’s Gillette Stadium on Aug. 28, 2015 and San Francisco's Levi’s Stadium on May 2, 2015.  More on-sale information and special guests will be revealed over the coming weeks.

“We’ve played so many of these stadiums so many summers, I know just how hard the fans coming out can rock,” Chesney says. “There aren’t a lot of guys out there who can hit it the way Jason does, so I’m glad we’re able to bring both of our tours together for 10 nights this summer. I know what me and the guys are bringing in terms of music, and I know Jason can hang with us!”

“Kenny is the guy everybody in country music looks up to when they think about workin’ hard, building your career out on the road and getting to eventually play stadiums,” added Aldean.  “When we first started dipping our toe into that business a few years ago, he’s the guy I would call or text for advice.  We have a real friendship.  Don’t get me wrong…that doesn’t mean I’m going to make it easy to follow me every night…he’s gonna have to work for it harder than he ever has before!”

5/2/15: San Francisco, CA, Levi’s Stadium

5/16/15: Dallas, TX, AT&T Stadium

6/20/15: Green Bay, WI, Lambeau Field

6/27/15: Seattle, WA, CenturyLink Field

7/18/15: Minneapolis, MN, Target Field

7/25/15: Pasadena, CA, Rose Bowl

8/1/15: Kansas City, MO, Arrowhead Stadium

8/8/15: Denver, CO, Sports Authority Field at Mile High

8/15/15: E. Rutherford, NJ, MetLifeStadium

8/28/15: Boston, MA, Gillette Stadium

The Aldean Army and Chesney’s No Shoes Nation are both known for their ability to work hard and play harder. With a strong commitment to living in the moment, these shows are destined to be a once-in-lifetime pairing – and everything summer, friends and music are meant to embrace.

Chesney, whose The Big Revival marked his 13th No. 1 Country Album debut, already topped the Billboard Country Songs chart for two weeks with “American Kids” -- and “Til It’s Gone,” the follow-up, was at No. 18 with a bullet on release date.

Jason Aldean, whose Old Boots, New Dirt debuted at No. one on Billboard’s Top 200 Album charts earlier this month, is known for his high-intensity shows, his sense of true grit and songs that capture the way his fans genuinely live their lives. The most downloaded male country artist in history and two-time Academy of Country Music Male Vocalist of the Year is also currently sitting at the No. one spot on country radio charts with lead single “Burnin’ It Down.”
