While everybody's been talking about Taylor Swift this week in America, she's been in Australia where she played for more than 11,300 Aussies at last Thursday's sold-out Brisbane arena opening of her 2010 "Fearless Tour." According to Australia's Courier Mail, Taylor told the crowd, "What better way to start [the tour] than to come see all these beautiful people in Australia." Swift also included two sold-out nights at Sydney's Acer Arena and TV appearances on Today Tonight, Today Australia and Hit List TV. Just before her Brisbane concert, Taylor was surprised with a quadruple-platinum album plaque representing Australian sales of 280 thousand copies. Taylor was spotted enjoying the beach in Australia (above) with a couple of girlfriends while taking a short break from her touring duties.
