Taylor Swift 'excited' for tour

Taylor Swift feels like she is "never done touring".

The stunning songstress is currently preparing to launch the next leg of her Speak Now Tour in Oceania next month.

Although Taylor has enjoyed her brief concert respite, she can't wait to go down under.

"We're going to Australia and New Zealand, because we are never done touring," she joked to MTV News. "I'm really excited about going back to Australia and New Zealand because, well, New Zealand, it's the first time I've ever been there, and the Australian fans have been so good to me. And this will be my third time going back there. I loved this show so much, the Speak Now Tour, that I didn't necessarily want to put it down. I hope they like it. I love going there. It's always really wonderful. The people are so nice."

Taylor's Speak Now Tour is one of the highest grossing concert tours of last year earning nearly $100 million in 2011. The star credits some of her extraordinary success to the guests she invited on the road with her, which include T.I., Usher, and Flo Rida to name a few.

"It's been crazy. Between all the guest artists that have come out and come onstage and surprised the audience, that was, I think, my favourite part of touring this year, because the audience never knew what they were going to get," Taylor gushed. "And I loved that experience, and even walking around L.A., people come up to me, these girls will come up to me [like] 'I was at the Staples show where Justin Bieber came out' [or] 'I was at the one where Ellen and Nicki Minaj came out,' and it's just really fun, because you start to realise that concert meant something to them, and that's nice."

Taylor's Oceanic leg of the tour will kick off in Perth, Australia, on March 2.
