BIG MACHINE RECORDS/NASHVILLE star TAYLOR SWIFT's MAY 22nd concert at the STAPLES CENTER in LOS ANGELES sold out this morning (2/6) in a record two minutes. This show is the first on her 2009 "FEARLESS" tour, which runs through OCTOBER.
CBS Radio Country KFRG/RIVERSIDE-SAN BERNARDINO PD LEE DOUGLAS tells ALL ACCESS the station held a text message contest for listeners to win tickets to the L.A. show before they went on sale. All they had to do was text the word "TAYLOR" to enter to win. By the time the contest ended, the station's software was loaded with over 120,000 texts.
Tickets for her shows on APRIL 23rd (EVANSVILLE, IN), APRIL 24th (JONESBORO, AR), MAY 1st (JACKSONVILLE, FL) and MAY 2nd (BILOXI, MS) will go on sale next FRIDAY (2/13) at 10a (local time).
