Los Angeles, CA – August 26, 2011 – Taylor Swift is two shows in to a sold-out four-show run at Los Angeles’ STAPLES Center, and as she did with her four New York-area shows last month, she has impressed some of the nation’s toughest critics. 
Here’s what top West Coast critics had to say this week about Taylor’s SPEAK NOW show:
Variety lauded Taylor as an “increasingly interesting” performer, and praised her show as “a supreme spectacle that could well mark a turning point in her career” writing that, “Swift's 2011 tour will likely go down as the estrogen-skewing equivalent of Motley Crue's ‘Girls, Girls, Girls’ tour of 1987.”
The Los Angeles Times dubbed Taylor the “poet laureate of heartland millennial romance,” praising her “tradition-rich writing” and raving, “At Staples on Tuesday, she succeeded at her most difficult task as a writer and performer yet. She made the life of a self-aware arena star feel relatable and true to fans both within the proximity of her adopted new home and to those farther-flung…”
Taylor played to capacity crowds of more than 13,600 fans a night in back-to-back LA shows, and on both nights Taylor was joined by a special guest – on Tuesday, Justin Bieber joined her on stage for a version of his hit “Baby,” and Wednesday Jason Mraz was in the house to duet on “I’m Yours.” She continues her run at STAPLES this weekend on Saturday and Sunday evenings.
In response to strong fan demand, Taylor is taking the SPEAK NOW tour to Australia and New Zealand in March of next year. After sell-outs this week on initial dates, four additional shows were added to the itinerary. The current 2012 schedule includes:

Text messages and tweets by three fugitive siblings who shot at a police officer and robbed a bank reveal a dangerous mindset and a firm bond between the siblings, "We've certainly seen their mindset when... They shot at a law enforcement officer outside of Tampa Bay, Fla., and when they fired inside that bank in Valdosta, Ga. But these additional texts and tweets have given us additional insight," FBI Special Agent Stephen Emmett told "Good Morning America" today. " We are concerned and feel that they are going to continue and cause problems to say the least for law enforcement." Ryan Dougherty, 21; his sister Lee Grace E.
