Tickets for the North American portion of the tour will go on sale to the general public Dec. 13. Advance tickets will be made available to certain fans.
Swift seems to have a soft spot in her heart for Arizona.
She played two dates at Glendale’s Gila River Arena in August 2015 on her 1989 tour.
During one of the concerts, Swift sang a song she’d written and dedicated to an Arizona toddler who had died of cancer.
The month before that, Swift donated $50,000 toward cancer treatment of a Valley girl too sick to make the singer’s upcoming shows.
Other West Coast appearances for Reputation were scheduled for Santa Clara, California on May 12; Pasadena, California on May 19; and Seattle, Washington on May 22.
The production’s final North American date was set for Oct. 8 in Arlington, Texas.
The world tour will eventually take the 27-year-old songwriter overseas to the United Kingdom, Ireland, Australia and New Zealand.
Taylor just released her latest album, “Reputation.”
