Taylor Swift won't be playing in New York on her '1989' tour (Updated)

Taylor Swift fans will soon be able to shake it off with the woman herself: Swift announced today that she’ll be embarking on a world tour starting this spring.

The “Welcome to New York” singer made the announcement on Twitter Monday morning in a post that also included a 15-second promo video featuring videos of Swift dancing framed as—what else?—Polaroids.

The tour kicks off in Louisiana on May 20 and will have stops in cities ranging from Amsterdam to Montreal with Vance Joy and Shawn Mendes joining as openers for certain dates. And, because it’s Swift, audiences can probably expect some other special guests as well. Jennifer Lopez and Tegan and Sara were among the musicians who showed up to sing a song with Swift on her most recent tour.

Tickets aren’t on sale yet, but 1989 is available now.

UPDATE: Taylor Swift was recently appointed New York City’s Global Welcome Ambassador after releasing (an advertisement disguised as) a pop song titled “Welcome to New York“… but Swift won’t be stopping in the Big Apple on her upcoming tour. The closest Swift will get to New York is New Jersey’s MetLife Stadium, a place that probably hasn’t been waiting for you.
