The full UK and Ireland tour follows her scheduled comeback appearance at London’s Jingle Bell Ball next month, which will see the singer sharing the stage with Ed Sheeran.
‘reputation’ also featured in NME’s top 50 albums of 2017, with our review hailing it as ‘a helluva ride’.
“While ‘Reputation’ packs heavy artillery that was almost entirely absent from ‘1989’, it’s actually a helluva ride”, NME’s Jordan Bassett wrote.
“Take the exhilarating and enjoyably self-aware ‘This Is Why We Can’t Have Nice Things’, a delirious waltz that depicts Tay slaying a snaky former friend.
“After she delivers a massive chorus custom-made for stadiums, there’s a laugh-out-loud spoken-word gag where she begins to express forgiveness but then catches herself and guffaws: ”HA! I can’t even say it with a straight face”.
He later added: “Is this a relatable record? If you’ve ever wanted to exact revenge on someone, the answer is yes.”
