Tickets on sale now for Taylor Swift at Miller

Dec. 13, 2007

KALAMAZOO--Best New Artist Grammy nominee and country music's youngest rising star, 17-year-old Taylor Swift, comes to Western Michigan University for one performance only at 8 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 2, in Miller Auditorium.

Members of the WMU campus community, including current faculty, staff and students, may purchase advance tickets now to see this platinum-selling artist by calling (269) 387-2300 or (800) 228-9858, online at millerauditorium.com, or in person at the Miller Auditorium Ticket Office. A 15 percent discount is available to all WMU faculty and staff who purchase tickets by phone or in person only. No student discounts are available for this performance.

Dubbed "Country's Teen Queen" by People magazine, Swift is the youngest person ever to write and sing a No. 1 country single entirely on her own. She is also the first female artist in country music history to write or co-write every song on a double platinum-selling debut album. At the 41st annual Country Music Association Awards, held last month at the Sommet Center in Nashville, Tenn., Swift received the Horizon Award, one of the highest honors for today's country music stars. The Nashville Songwriters Association International also honored her as the Songwriter/Artist of the Year, making her the youngest musician to win the award.

Tickets to see Taylor Swift in concert at Miller Auditorium range from $34.25 to $40.75. They go on sale to the general public at 10 a.m. Monday, Dec. 17, and have been selling out within hours at other box offices around the country.
