Taylor Swift arrives in Adelaide for 1989 world tour

POP megastar Taylor Swift has touched down in Adelaide ahead of her much-anticipated sold-out Entertainment Centre show on Monday night.

The Blank Space singer was welcomed by a small group of dedicated fans as she stepped off her private jet into scorching heat at Adelaide Airport.

But it was only a brief glimpse of the blonde beauty, with Swift — who was wearing a short skirt and maroon top — quickly whisked away into a waiting car.

About 200 fans are already at the Entertainment Centre, where Swift will tonight play the first of two Adelaide shows on her 1989 world tour.

Some of the T-Swizzle devotees, mostly young girls. have been camped out at the venue since 8pm Sunday night in oppressive heat.

Many have set up small tents to try to keep cool, while security guards have been handing out cold water throughout the day.

Alana Smith and Jessica Ryles were the first in line to see the US pop superstar’s Adelaide concert, arriving at the venue a full 24 hours before Swift was to take to the stage for the first of her two sold-out shows.

“Last night was the worst, it was really windy so there was a lot of dirt around. I woke up with dirt on my feet and dirt in my hair,” said Ms Smith, 25, as Adelaide sweltered through its hottest December night in more than 100 years.
