Taylor’s ‘1989’ world tour could be even hotter than we thought! The ‘Blank Space’ singer says she has ’10 guests’ she really wants to join her on stage, and they include rappers Nicki and Iggy!
Is there a stage big enough for Iggy Azalea, 24, and Nicki Minaj, 31? If anyone can bring these two rap rivals together, it’s female empowerment promoter Taylor Swift, 24! So will Iggy and Nicki be there when Tay’s tour kicks off on May 20, 2015 in Louisiana? Here’s what we know.
Taylor Swift’s ‘1989’ Tour Acts: Will Iggy Azalea & Nicki Minaj Join?
Taylor has been keeping her cards very close to her chest when it comes to her 1989 tour but she reveals in a new interview with Time magazine that she’s eager to grace the stage with some of her favorite artists!
“”I love Iggy Azalea, I love Haim. I’d say Vance Joy, but he’s opening up the tour, so he’ll be there anyway,” Taylor says. “The things that I try to really focus on when bringing out people surprise guests is what do my fans really want to see, what would they lose their minds over? Not to show too many of my cards here—but I have probably 10 guests that I’m thinking about that would be amazing.”
Taylor has been lucky enough to have some of the hottest names in music play her stadium shows for free in the past and we have no doubt there are plenty more who would jump at the chance to perform alongside her!
“But you know, these have to be artists that would get up there and play for the love of playing, because they’re not paid for being there, and they usually have to switch up their schedules,” Taylor explains. “The people who have done it in the past — it’s been astonishing to me, because it’s been Nicki Minaj, and Usher, and T.I., these huge artists who could be anywhere else. And you can tell who loves playing live if they’re willing to come and play for free on one of my stadium shows.”
Hmm, does this mean that Taylor might ask some of the stars she mentioned to return? We would love to see Nicki and Iggy set aside their differences and join forces on stage!
Although the opening acts are still up in the air, Taylor has already revealed all of the dates and cities she’ll be playing.
As HollywoodLife.com previously reported, Vance Joy will open all of the North American shows, while Shawn Mendes will also join for some performances, so Taylor already has a great line-up planned for her fans.
So HollywoodLifers, who else do YOU want to see Taylor perform with? Iggy Azalea? Nicki Minaj? Let us know!
