Just in time for parents who want their tweens to like them on Christmas: Xcel Energy Center finally announced ticket info for Taylor Swift’s Sept. 7-8 dates at Xcel Energy Center. The seats will go on sale Dec. 14 at 10 a.m. through Ticketmaster, the arena’s box office or 800-745-3000. At least until scalpers get their hands on them, the tickets are still refreshingly reasonable: $31.50, $71.50 and $86.50. It seems Swift still considers herself in the company of country artists (who rarely charge more than $100) instead of pop stars (who have no trouble asking for the $250 she could probably demand).
Swift’s rumored new beau, Ed Sheeran -- who was just at the X last night for KDWB’s Jingle Ball -- will be back to open the show.
