Taylor Swift is backlit on stage during her concert at the Bryce Jordan Center on Saturday, Aug. 29, one of many stops on her Fearless Tour 2009, which is promoting the 19-year-old singer/songwriter’s recent album, also entitled ‘Fearless.’ The show sold out in a mere 20 minutes according to Bryce Jordan Center Director of Sales and Marketing Bernie Punt, making it the fastest sellout in the venue’s history.
