Taylor Swift ending her world tour with a show in Dublin's 3Arena

SINGING superstar Taylor Swift will play a headline show in Dublin next year.

The We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together singer has announced that she will play the 3Arena on June 29 as part of the European leg of the 1989 World Tour.

It's the first live show the award-winning singer will play in Ireland since a sold out date in 2011.

The show is bound to be an unforgettable night for Swift's fans, as it is the final concert in her highly anticipated tour.

The 24-year-old's globe-trotting will kick off in Tokyo in May and will span four continents.

Taylor's critically acclaimed fifth studio album, 1989, is the highest selling release in the US since 2002 and is the only album to go platinum there in 2014.

1989 went straight to No. 1 in Ireland while topping iTunes' album charts in 96 countries and has already been lauded as one of the Top 10 albums of the year by everyone from Rolling Stone to Time magazine.

Swift, who is currently single, previously dated stars including Jake Gyllenhaal and One Direction's Harry Styles.

In a recent interview, she insisted she is more than happy not being in a relationship.

"I am perfectly happy being alone, and one of the reasons I'm perfectly happy being alone is that no one gets hurt this way," she said.

Taylor has recently been linked to The 1975 frontman Matt Healy, after the pair exchanged numbers back in October.

She has since been seen attending many of the band's gigs.

Asked about the potential budding romance, Matt said: "I wouldn't say no."

Swift is up for three Grammys this year, having already won seven to date.

She is nominated for Record of the Year with Shake It Off, but faces competition from rapper Iggy Azalea and Sam Smith.

Swift was also nominated in the Best Pop Solo Performance category where she's also up against Smith as well as Pharrell Williams and John Legend.

Tickets for the Dublin show go on sale next Monday at 9am from Ticketmaster.
