Petition for Taylor Swift to add Birmingham, UK tour dates to her upcoming Red Tour in 2013!
I've been a huge fan of singer/songwriter Taylor Swift for years now, and it's always been my dream to see her live, but because of past issues with accessibility for my wheelchair (I have Cerebral Palsy) or being able to afford tickets at the time - I haven't actually been able to get to my idol, Taylor Swift, sing live. This has absolutely crushed me, at times - I know every single lyric to every single one of her songs, and I've always wanted to just be able to sit in an arena and to feel that buzz whilesinging along with hundreds of other people. But I haven't been able to.
So when I found out aboutTaylor's upcoming tour to go with her new album, Red - I was so happy, determined that I would get into the venue with or without my chair, just to see her live. I had just enough saved to afford tickets for all of my family to go with me (there's five of us), but as my parents know I am such a fan of Taylor they said that they'd buy the tickets, just so I could finally acheive this dream. I was nearly in tears, I really was so happy..
That is, until I checked official websites and official forums and found out that the only placeswhereTaylor will be performing live, in the UK, are London and Manchester - not Birmingham, the second largest city in the UK, and the only place in the UK that is close enough to me that I could travel to, to be able to see her. I was distraught, I really was.
But after the sadness started to subside (it still properly hasn't gone completely) I decided that I wasn't going to take no for an answer, so created this petition to send to Taylor's management, Big Machine Records in the US, so I could prove to them how worthwhile Taylor touring in Birmingham, UK, really would be, and how many fans would die to see her there - myself included.
So please, please sign this petition, or even share it around, so that I, and lots of other fans, can finally see my idol perform live - I, and hopefully lots of other Swifties, really would appreciate it!
Thank you all so much,
