Cities of the world, brace yourselves. Make ready the emergency shutdown plans, for internationally renowned pop star and sentient Etsy store Taylor Swift is going on tour.

Swift will be heading out to support the chart-topping and actually pretty great new album 1989. (And when we say chart-topping, we really mean it: The album is set to earn the largest single-week sales since 2002, and may even beat the all-time single-week sales record for a female album currently held by Britney Spears’ Oops!…I Did It Again.) Swift revealed on Good Morning America last week that she was in the early stages of planning a tour, saying, β€œI am excited about announcing things when I can announce them,” in one of her classic demonstrations of Wittgensteinian linguistic logic puzzles. However, she saved the official announcement for today and an excited tweet, promptly followed by the less-exciting immediate crashing of her website in response to that tweet.

Beginning May 20 in Bossier City, Louisiana, Swift will play a handful of shows in the U.S. before heading to Europe, then return to unite America for the remainder of the summer and fall. She will then pause, giving the world time to recover from such an onslaught of Swiftian intensity, before heading to Australia in December. Vance Joy is opening all the North American shows, and Shawn Mendes will appear at several stops, as well. There is no word yet on whether she will become the Global Welcome Ambassador of every city she stops in, but let’s go ahead and assume that will happen.

Also worth noting: If you were hoping to celebrate by listening to some Taylor Swift on Spotify, you’re out of luck. Time reports that Swift has pulled all of her albums from the streaming site, following an op-ed she wrote for The Wall Street Journal in which she spoke out against free music sharing. (Shake it off, Spotify; you’ve still got her one song from The Hunger Games soundtrack.)

The entire list of tour dates is below. Pre-sale tickets can be purchased by American Express cardholders and subscribers to her email list before the general public, in case you’re chomping at the bit to secure your seat. European ticket pre-sales begin November 4, and American pre-sales on November 7.
