To support her just-released album "Red," the newly single singer will play 58 dates across North America in the spring and summer.

Fresh off her reported break up with Kennedy princeling Conor, Taylor Swift is hitting the road.

The country singer announced on Friday a 58-date concert marathon across the U.S. and Canada for the spring and summer of 2013.

The tour kicks off in Omaha, Nebraska on March 13 and then winds its way through 29 states and three provinces before concluding in Nashville, Tennessee on Sept. 21.

The shows are in support of Swift's new album Red, which was released on Oct. 22.

“I didn’t think I could be any more excited about my RED album, but then I start thinking about how I’m going to put the new show together for The RED Tour,” said Swift on her website.

“I have so many ideas about how to really bring this music to life, and I can’t wait to share the new show with all my fans!”

The 22-year-old Swift has been much in the news because of her relationship with Conor Kennedy, the 18-year-old grandson of Robert F. Kennedy.

The singer spent time this summer at the famous family compound on Cape Cod and reportedly visited the high school senior at his Massachusetts prep school.

US Magazine reported on Oct. 25 that the pair had broken up. But neither Swift or Kennedy has officially confirmed the split.
